The Cost of Being Iron Man

Greetings loyal readers of the Skeptical Samurai Blog!

Oh how I have missed you!

It has been a busy couple of weeks on the Skeptical Samurai front!  Just in the process of wrapping up some of the finishing touches on our new home so that we can actually begin the process of physically moving into our new accommodations.  Exciting!

Also of note, I officially started medical school this week.  Technically, I started last week, but it was all orientation so no actual lectures/classes.  This week marked the official start of classes and diving into the course material.

Suffice to say (as I am sure some of you have noticed) the blog has suffered a bit (in that there have not been as many posts).  Don’t worry; I have not forgotten about you or the blog, it is just that there are only so many hours in a day!

Sadly I have no ground breaking investigations for you this week, but fear not, as I am hard at work on another segment of “The Skeptical Samurai’s guide to Comic Books”.  I will give you a little hint…

Additionally I am also hard at work at converting the blog into a full-fledged podcast!

So free not dear readers…there is still much to be expected from your good friend the Skeptical Samurai

In the mean time I thought that you might find the following link interesting.  I really enjoyed it and I thought that it would make a nice addendum to the “Skeptical Samurai guide to comic books: Iron Man edition” that I did a while back (here is a link to the original blog posts:  https://theskepticalsamurai.wordpress.com/2012/04/03/the-skeptical-samurais-guide-to-comic-books-iron-man-part-4/).  This serves as a “real world” cost analysis of what it would actually take to be Iron Man.  Granted this article goes into both Iron Man and Tony Stark (and his life style) but I certainly does a bring an element of realism to the notion of what it would cost to become an Iron Man type super-hero.

Enjoy! (click to enlarge)

This has been the skeptical samurai
