To pick this project:

“Drive Angry” [which]  centers on a man driven by rage who is chasing the people who killed his daughter and kidnapped her baby. The vendetta/rescue spins out of control as the chase gets bloodier by the mile, leaving bodies strewn along the highway.

To do:

Itcamefromouterspace

It’s that simple.

Wonder if Cage will have a special wig designed for 3D?

Prehistoric Fish in the Ganges!

Fisherman in Calcutta, India claim that the creature they pulled from the Ganges (pictured above) is a Coelacanth.  The Coelacanth is a very old fish.  They first appear in the fossil record in the middle of the Devonian Era, more than 350 million years ago.  And until the 2oth Century most scientists believed that they had gone extinct at the end of the Cretaceous period,  roughly 65 million years ago.

However, in 1938, the species was discovered in waters off the coast of South Africa.  They’ve subsequently been found in many eras off the east coast of Africa.  However, if this is indeed a Coelacanth, its discovery in the Ganges would mark a whole new range for the species.

Paleontologists are rushing to the area to determine if this is indeed a Coelacanth.  Though some observers are already skeptical, claiming it resembles other local fish such as the Orange-Spotted Grouper.

In his new book Physics of the Impossible, renowned physicist Michio Kaku examines the scientific possibility of some of the classic tropes of Science Fiction.  Everything from invisibility to teleportation.  And from time travel to robots composing poetry.  In a recent interview on the book for the BBC World service, he said:

A lot of the predictions made by science fiction writers have been replaced by the march of science.

In his books and radio show, Kaku has long used Science Fiction as a way of getting a general audience interested in physics.  And his books are all must reads.  His latest book is no exception.
