This is what caused me to pack up my poor Printrbot simple kit (that I painstakingly built last year, only to result in lots of problems and sh*tty prints) in a box and put it in the garage.  There is a fabulous review here: https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/07/02/review-printrbot-play-3dthursday-3dprinting/ Drooling. But I might even wait a bit - I have a sense this stuff is getting more and more mature.
Order now.  Ships next business day! NOW AVAILABLE IN WHITE & RED

Worth a read. Interesting.
 
Moderate Republicans, fighting back, at last?  This article says it’s happening. But I will believe it when I see it.

see: http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/ej-dionne-when-moderates-fight-back/2014/09/07/42c08a86-352b-11e4-9e92-0899b306bbea_story.html

Meanwhile, see my Friday posting explaining the eight phases of the American Civil War. (We are embroiled in the latest, as we speak.)The world needs an America that is pragmatic, with a can-do, problem-solving attitude. We are nasty and not very useful, when we go through these intervals of getting mired in dogma.

Wow.
 
Nature is truly amazing, a species of fruit fly - G tridens has evolved pictures of ants on its wings.

 Dr Brigitte Howarth of Zayed University who first discovered G tridens indicated that these flies use their wings to scare off predators. When threatened, the fly flashes its wings to give the appearance of ants walking back and forth. The predator gets confused and the fly zips off. This defence mechanism may also make the fly more attractive and therefore increase its chance of mating ;)

I guess it's similar to man who "evolved" muscle? hehe
