“Plato Smash?” It must be ACTION PHILOSOPHERS!

I’ve been meaning to plug the guys from Evil Twin Comics for awhile since their Action Philosophers series is a perfect combination of awesome and educational.

Action Philosophers is a comic book series about the life, attitudes and the major philosophical ideas of… well, the major philosophers!

Issue #1 starts off with “The Pre Socratics!”, and seriously, how can you not love an intro to philosophy like this…

Another sample of Action Philosophers awesome awesomeness

BTW, starting with the pyromaniac dude in the lower left and going clockwise, that’s Heraclitus, Anaximenes, Miletus, Anaximander, Empedocles and Parmenides.

No, seriously.

Their contributions and beliefs are presented in a very entertaining manner, and quickly advance to Descartes.

Philosophy 101? Definitely. Educational? Yes, but in a sneaky “hey I learned something I didn’t mean to” way! Entertaining? Oh hell yes.

You can read the Pre-Socratics, Rene Descartes, John Stuart Mill and Carl Jung stories online for free by clicking any of the above links, or you can get a PDF preview of all four stories here. (NOTE: PDF link) You can also get the whole compendium from amazon.com from here or the identical link on the Evil Twin Comics’ website or the smaller “volume” series by looking at the author’s page at amazon.com.

Is it me, or does Hugh Jackman look a lot like a young Clint Eastwood? [PHOTO]

So my gorgeous wife and I were enjoying being in our new home this weekend, and as we were flipping through the channels, we found the Clint Eastwood movie of all Clint Eastwood movies was on… “The Good, The Bad and the Ugly”.

As we were watching the big finale, my wife does a double take, grabs her laptop, looks up a few images in Google, and says “Hey! Hugh Jackman looks a lot like a young Clint Eastwood.”

I looked over at her laptop…

Hugh Jackman = A young Clint Eastwood

… and damn. He sure does.

Hey Hollywood! You’re so jazzed on remakes, how about remaking “The Good, The Bad and the Ugly” with Hugh Jackman as the Man With No Name? I can totally see Hugh nailing this part. And there hasn’t been a good western out in a few years, so a big budget movie like this would probably pull in some major moolah.

And in case you haven’t seen the movie, here’s the big finale….

Whaddya’ think?

My next home needs a waterslide from the bedroom to the pool

A secret underground mansion with a waterslide going directly from the bedroom to the pool? A central jacuzzi with an atrium above it?

Looks like a nice summer home for Tony Stark.

Even though the realtor obviously photoshopped some parts of it, and I think 4,300 sq feet is kind of smallish for a $3 million dollar mansion, I still want it.

Great news! I only have $2,999,980 to go! No problem!

Here’s the listing on Country Life (with more interior photos).
