"For those you who want to act aghast that I’d use a term like 'rape insurance' to describe the proposal here in front of us, you should be even more offended that it’s an absolutely accurate description of what this proposal requires. This tells women that were raped and became pregnant that they should have bought special insurance for it. By moving forward on this initiative, Senate Republicans want to essentially require Michigan women to plan ahead and financially invest in healthcare coverage for potentially having their bodies violated and assaulted. Even worse, it would force parents to have similar and unthinkably terrible discussions about planning the same for their daughters. I've said it before and I will say it again: This is by far one of the most misogynistic proposals I've ever seen in the Michigan legislature."
Overall, however, I feel less distracted. I feel less pulled to share/tell/capture every moment of my life, and better able to just be there living those moments.
What do you think of this short film titled, "I Forgot My Phone" about the crazy prevalence of smartphones in our lives?

Thanks for any help you can offer!
Is that geeky enough? :) G.T. Labs (gt-labs.com) has a whole bunch of them, from a biography of Richard Feynman to "Primates: The Fearless Science of Jane Goodall, Dian Fossey, and Birute Galdikas". These are great for getting comic book fans more into science (or getting science fans more into comics)!
I just finished reading the biography of Richard Feynman and really enjoyed it just because of the format. I love reading nonfiction, but I've had trouble concentrating lately. It had never occurred to me to look for nonfiction in comic book form, so this was a bit of a revelation for me!
More about a few of their books:
"Physicist . . . Nobel winner . . . bestselling author . . . safe-cracker." http://www.gt-labs.com/feynman.html
"The first original graphic novel about scientists (physicists, mostly) ever, featuring stories about Richard Feynman, Galileo, Niels Bohr, Werner Heisenberg, and many more!" http://www.gt-labs.com/twofisted.html
Primates: The Fearless Science of Jane Goodall, Dian Fossey, and Birute Galdikas
"The true story of three scientists who risked their lives for research that forever changed the way we think of primates...including ourselves." http://www.gt-labs.com/primates.html
Dignifying Science: Stories About Women Scientists
"Stories about Marie Curie, Emmy Noether, Lise Meitner, Rosalind Franklin, Barbara McClintock, Birute Galdikas, and Hedy Lamarr. Yes, that Hedy Lamarr." http://www.gt-labs.com/dignifying.html
So what other sciencey comics are out there? Or what science topics should be made into comics if they haven't already?
