Interesting factoid:

If Americans could choose to eat only one food for the remainder of their lives, I will assure you it has to be pizza. Americans eat on average 100 acres of pizza daily, or 350 slices per second.
-- Selim Bassoul
CEO of The Middleby Corporation, maker of pizza ovens

For me... It would be a tossup between pizza and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

"Space Exploration Technologies, as the closely held company is formally known, has contracts worth $4.2 billion for hauling U.S. astronauts and supplies to the International Space Station, and Pentagon officials say they expect to certify it soon for military payloads. And SpaceX’s business of launching satellites looks so promising that, in January, Google and Fidelity Investments together invested $1 billion in the Hawthorne, California–based company. That gives them a 10 percent stake that values SpaceX at $10 billion. Other investors include the Founders Fund, Draper Fisher Jurvetson, Valor Equity Partners, and Capricorn. With 50 launches worth $5 billion on its manifest, SpaceX is making money, according to its website, although a spokesman wouldn’t say how much."

Could this turn out well? The Moon is a Harsh Mistress is probably my favorite Heinlein novel

Twentieth Century Fox has acquired the film rights to classic sci-fi novel “The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress” and Bryan Singer has come on board to direct the adaptation to be titled “Uprising,” an individual with knowledge of the project told TheWrap.

Your brain is wiser than mine.

Having reviewed the projected team for this project, I predict that they will turn it into a sex & action style battle flick and leave out... pretty much everything good.

Amazing Science Fiction Stories, September 1960. Cover by Albert Nuetzell.

Influenced by Georges Méliès “Le Voyage dans la Lune”? How could it not?

For reasons passing understanding, the movie's going to be called Uprising rather than The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress. Because... why use the recognizable name, I guess.

No sooner did the rights to The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress reverted back to Robert A. Heinlein's estate than another studio has come along to snatch them up. This time, Fox is bringing some A-List names to the project.

Jesse McReynolds
 
Jesse McReynolds
Feature article in Virginia Living magazine
Jesse McReynolds, the mandolin player, is as nice a man as you’d want to meet. He’s humble, soft-spoken, quick with a joke and a compliment. But when you ask the bluegrass legend if he thinks Jim and Jesse and the Virginia Boys—the band that he led with his late brother for a half-century—has been given proper due, he shakes his head and gets a little serious. “I think we’ve been forgotten a little bit. But we were as successful as anyone.”

Work
Occupation
I work as a computer engineer, designing and programming SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) systems and doing energy management control. While I've concentrated in C++ and C programming, I have also dabbled in circuit board design, embedded systems, client / server software, as well as some web work.

Bluegrass banjo, SF Fan, C++ Programmer
Introduction
I'm a lover of bluegrass music and play 5-string banjo with my band Bluegrass & Beyond. We play regionally and have released two CD's, Living' a Dream and Cover of the Bluegrass News. We do a mixture of original and cover material in a traditional bluegrass style. Bluegrass & Beyond is a great bunch of guys, and I couldn't ask for a better outlet for my music. I like a wide variety of music, so its not uncommon for my MP3 player to transition from Flatt & Scruggs to Meat Loaf to Steve Earle to Merle Haggard to Ozzie Osborne. You could get musical whiplash hanging out with me!

When I'm not pickin' the 5, you can usually find me reading or watching science fiction or fantasy. I cut my teeth on the likes of Asimov, Heinlein, Clarke, and Poul. While I prefer hard SF, I also enjoy a good fantasy ranging from LOTR to Highlander to Pern. My favorite TV SciFi has to be Babylon 5 with Star Trek: DS9 a close second. I'm not a great fan of Hollywood's "let's blow up a lot of stuff and have some icky BEM's (bug eyed monsters) eating people" kind of scifi.
