There's a Science Fiction Film Festival going on in Texas this week, and they sent out press releases. Since it's a Science Fiction Film Festival, you'd think that the Science Fiction Website "Io9" (No, I don't understand the name either), would say "Hey, cool! We'll plug it for you on our site!"

What the hell is wrong with you? Why would you even ask such a thing?” But of course the Common Wisdom is Common simply because no one ever questions it, not because it’s inherently right. We’ll discuss the Pros and Cons for each planet under the jump.
