This week Cooter joins us as we open with a lovely discussion on the newest robotic innovation: corpse eating! After that, it's the political corner as we discuss the recent nomination hearings for Sonia Sotomayor and what they reveal about the lack of discussion in this country about race, and beyond that we each take a moment to reflect on some of our little differences. From there, it's the renewed fight between Microsoft and Google before we take some time to comment on the casting choices for the Green Lantern and Jonah Hex films. Finally, the big topic as we think about what a future war will look like. The days of trenches and tanks seem to be rapidly fading, so what can we expect out of the next big conflict?

But, if we use smokes for currency, what would I do when I need medium-duration fuses for pipe bombs? Dollars don\'t burn like that!

I can qualify to comment on the cigarettes issue as someone who served 5 years in the US army and spent 2 years in Afghanistan.

It will never happen!

Cigarettes are currency when you are in the middle of nowhere and have nowhere to spend your money. It sounds like something out of prison but it\'s true.

Lando are you Cuban?

Lando is Cuban because Lando is Lando.

Honestly though, i see myself as American. Cuban genes, but raised from the start in the States. Now depending on where you stand on nature versus nurture that will change things. I believe that in this country we become part of the new ego and leave the historical culture of our parents in the back seat. Sure, it\'s always in the car, but you dont have to pay attention to it while you speed down the highway. My family has different ideas about that, but we are also all entitled to our personal opinions in this country.

Cigarettes as currency. We should switch the economy over to that, see if it does any better. One night of drinking could leave you in the poor house. Thanks for the info O.M.
