Cypher Magik

Magik and Cypher are two characters from the original New Mutants who didn't make it.

Cypher, able to speak and instantly learn any language took a bullet for a teammate just before Rictor and Boom Boom joined. Magik, Colossus's kid sister, was returned to childhood, and died of a popular mutant illness.

Now you know.

the story of stuff


"From its extraction through sale, use and disposal, all the stuff in our lives affects communities at home and abroad, yet most of this is hidden from view. The Story of Stuff is a 20-minute, fast-paced, fact-filled look at the underside of our production and consumption patterns. The Story of Stuff exposes the connections between a huge number of environmental and social issues, and calls us together to create a more sustainable and just world. It'll teach you something, it'll make you laugh, and it just may change the way you look at all the stuff in your life forever."
- the story of stuff with annie leonard



i remember learning the three R's in school. REDUCE, REUSE, and RECYCLE. we were told they were important in that order. now we have a huge push on Recycling, with ads and facilities everywhere, but no advertising money is wasted on promoting the more important R's. that's interesting.

just passing on a neat video. annie leonard does a better job explaining this sort of thing better than i ever will.
