    [url<]https://www.anandtech.com/show/12520/the-galaxy-s9-review[/url<] The Galaxy S9 Exynos 9810 version is a massive trainwreck. What the hell is with that performance? M3 had a lot of promise closing in on the Apple A10 performance, but how did Samsung F--- this up?

    [quote<] When viewing the modified mice under the light, Aleksanteri Aspelund, a medical student in Alitalo’s laboratory, saw something unexpected: The heads of the mice glowed. At first, he suspected that there was something wrong — with the animals, the lighting or the measuring equipment. But when Alitalo and Aspelund repeated the experiment, they got the same result. [b<]It seemed that the lymphatic vessels extended to the brain after all.[/b<] [/quote<] [url<]https://www.washingtonpost.com/national/health-science/when-scientists-saw-the-mouse-heads-glowing-they-knew-the-discovery-was-big/2017/05/19/f33cc574-246a-11e7-a1b3-faff0034e2de_story.html?utm_term=.38e9b48c8925[/url<]

    [quote<]Cutting edge of 3D printing revealed at last weekend's midwest RepRap festival @ HackADay[/quote<] I was at MRRF and there was a ton of very interesting things to look at. A short summary article like that doesn't do it justice. I'm looking forward to next year!

      I thought I would be there too. I heard about it last year and knew it was close (my wife is from Goshen). I lost track of it though and only had a day’s notice. Still, I thought my nephews would be down for the drive down there after we watched Pacific Rim 2 on Saturday, but they weren’t into it and I decided not to go on my own. Maybe next year.

        Make a note to say hello if you do attend.

    Love paella, even if the word always makes me think of kneecaps.

    Somewhat related word of warning, from experience: do [i<]not[/i<] snort saffron.

      Would that be like snorting ragweed pollen?

      I make paella regularly, in a cast iron skillet (works beautifully). It’s wonderful and very straightforward to make a simple paella.

      As to the snorting of saffron – the expense alone (~ $10,000/kilogram) would deter me.
