my parents just kicked me out of the house most of the summer

And these days, my wife goes into hysterics if our kids set foot outside the house because she's convinced somebody will kidnap them. When I tell her I spent every single day of every single summer outside from the time I was 10 to the time I was old enough to drive she just insists that "times were different back then".

Comment Re:Worst trailer ever? The Matrix (Score 1) 206

The "Miracles from Heaven" trailer ended with the mom saying "you're telling me that when my daughter fell 20 feet onto her head it didn't paralyze her, but it cured her of the incurable disease that she was suffering from?"

Well, assuming that this is all true (these are just accusations), I can guarantee that it wasn't coming from the CS-major code-cranking computer nerds, but from the stuffed-suit MBA types that have infested my chosen profession.

Submission + - The Shattering Truth of 3D-Printed Clothing ( 1

mirandakatz writes: Ever since the early, hype-heavy days of 3D printing, fashion visionaries have been trying to figure out how to apply the technology to textiles, creating otherworldly designs that could, in theory, be bulletproof, fireproof, pressure-resistant, or able to trap heat or cold. But as avant-garde designers like threeASFOUR have discovered, 3D printing clothes that are actually wearable—and won't shatter if the wearer sits down—is an incredibly difficult feat to pull off. At Backchannel, Roni Jacobson looks at the challenges that have kept 3D-printed clothing from going mainstream, and the efforts of forward-thinking designers who are nonetheless pushing the limits of what textiles can do.

Yes, I agree. You have to do all three: listen to lectures/explanations given by somebody who already knows the source material, read the books, AND do the hands-on exercises, in order to actually master a subject. If you skip any of those three, you won't really understand it.
