John Farrier's Comments

This is an excellent point. The meaning of words changes over time.

I remember back in '97 or so when I first heard the idea that oral sex is not sex. It struck me then as bizarre and still does.

This is actually a good explanation of how a 3d printer works. It even has (bleeped out) swearing, which is a major part of the experience of using and repairing a 3d printer.

One of the challenges of demonstrating and teaching 3d printing is that it's science fiction technology, but is not yet up to the level of science fiction. People who see it at my library often get really excited, then disappointed when it doesn't work like a Star Trek replicator by building objects instantly or operating without 3d files.

But over all, it's a lot of fun. Right now I'm trying to build a series of files that will let me recreate maps of every electoral college result in party-specific colors and heights representing the relative number of electoral votes by state. I'm currently not aggravated by my 3d printer, just SketchUp and MakerWare.

We had daughters, not sons. But I had already decided that any boys would not be circumcised. Routine infant circumcision is not useful in the modern world.
