The problem is not that god does exist or does not exist but how people are treated for having an original thought. Atheists are told they are without morals by the religious and the religious are told they are a bunch of lemmings following things blindly by the atheists.. who is right? who the #@%@#%#@ cares... keep your religion in your back pocket and just go have a nice life..

For years scientists have tried to build sturdy materials for larger products from ultrastrong nano-size building blocks, such as nanotubes, nanosheets and nanorods, only to have the larger structures turn out comparatively weak."

Do not underestimate the value of print statements for debugging.
