The next next next natural resource gold rush: The Moon

So apparently the moon has a ton of helium 3 also known as Tritium.

From a Popular Mechanics article on why to go back to the moon.

Samples collected in 1969 by Neil Armstrong during the first lunar landing showed that helium-3 concentrations in lunar soil are at least 13 parts per billion (ppb) by weight. Levels may range from 20 to 30 ppb in undisturbed soils. Quantities as small as 20 ppb may seem too trivial to consider. But at a projected value of $40,000 per ounce, 220 pounds of helium-3 would be worth about $141 million.

Conan the Symphony

This is one of my favorite movie soundtracks.  When they scored the film they decided to go with a continuous orchestral soundtrack.  It plays through the entire movie and makes it feel like an epic opera.

Joe Rogan helping GSP modify his turning side kick

Rogan has a pretty mean spinning back(turning side) kick.

I like how GSP used the hell out of this in the fight with Shields.

Also big ups to Machida for his Crane Kick of doom.... Seagal strikes AGAIN!
