The oldest known stone-tipped projectiles have been found in Ethiopia, clocking in at around 280,000 years old. That’s about 88,000 years older than Homo sapiens. We know that we were not the only intelligent, tool building hominids— there were ones that came before us and existed at the same…
RoboCop is part of my personal action-movie canon, which (like everybody’s canons, probably) is tailed by a dismaying list of sequels, prequels, and reboots.

But to watch the trailer for José Padilha’s 2014 version of RoboCop is to be seized by an uneasy fear. Can the weird, violent, hilarious world of Verhoeven’s Detroit really be turned into something so bland?

What was once an enormous salt mine in turda, romania, has now been carefully renovated by the regional cluj county council into the world’s first salt mining history museum. the salina turda salt mines were excavated in the 17th century, proving a crucial source for salt that brought the romans much wealth. today, the durgau lakes at the mine’s surface – responsible for much of the salt deposits in the area – are popular tourist attractions that guarantee a steady flow of visitors all year around. a trip down the vertical shafts that once transported thousands of tons of salt will slowly reveal the immense scale of the excavated earth, made blatantly clear upon reaching the very bottom of the mine which is covered in a sand-like layer of salt.
Almost borrowing a certain aesthetic from the deep sea, the bottom of the mine features almost alien structures made of timber members and illuminated with suspended tube lights. the interior maintains a steady 11-12 degrees celsius and 80 percent humidity, completely devoid of any allergens and an almost absence of any bacteria, making the unique micro-climate a destination for those suffering from allergic respiratory diseases.
Admittedly, Nick Cage put some seriously bad stank on a great character. Additionally, Marvel has been brave and bold in their character reboots. Yet, the new Ghost Rider “design” make him look like a dickhole.
How does it make sense to finally give him a rad skull helmet, THEN put him in a muscle car?
Twelve issues at best.
