    The only problem I found with this one was that it ought to have been labeled “must read” and wasn’t. 🙂

    “Why doesn’t your lab have a 3D printer yet?”

    *Sigh* Articles like this rub my nose in how out-of-touch I am with the newest stuff.

    “Ross Douthat Thinks You Moral Degenerates Are Ruining His Country”

    Gotta love that last line: ‘Christ, what an asshole.’ But a person can’t deny Douthat is precisely what the NYT desires for they sure do keep on publishing him.
