Top Picks for February 3

1) "Why our best officers are leaving"

Tim Kane

The Atlantic

Kane analyzes a disturbing trend in the U.S. military, namely the departure of some of the most talented officers to the private sector, depriving our armed forces of their best commanders.

2) Dinosaur Comics

Ryan North may be the laziest cartoonist going. Updating once a day, he uses the same graphics in every strip, relying on his incredible sense of humor to produce one of the best webcomics on the Net.

3) 127 Hours

Danny Boyle

James Franco

Canyoneer Aron Ralston spent 127 hours trapped in a cave before amputating his arm. See one of the best films of the year, but beware: you might pass out.
