mom:"Don’t leave your backpack in my car it might get stolen."

me:"If someone steals my bag they’re getting a couple of tampons, deodorant and oatmeal. Seems to me like that person must really be struggling. But it won’t happen, you know why?"

mom:"Why?"

me:"Because it’s peaches n cream oatmeal. Nobody ever wants that flavor."

mom:"Omg you’re right."

So I laugh, and my lipstick leaves a red stain like a bloody crescent moon on the top of the beer can.

Chinese Doctors Use 3D-Printing in Pioneering Surgery to Replace Half of Man’s Skull
Surgeons at Xijing Hospital in Xi’an, Shaanxi province in Northwest China are using 3D-printing in a pioneering surgery to help rebuild the skull of a man who suffered brain damage in a construction accident.
Hu, a 46-year-old farmer, was overseeing construction to expand his home in Zhouzhi county last October when he was hit by a pile of wood and fell down three storeys.
Although he survived the fall, the left side of his skull was severely crushed and the shattered bone fragments needed to be removed, which has led to a depression of one side of his head.
Due to his injuries, Hu cannot see well out of his left eye, experiences double vision (diplopia) and is also unable to speak and write.
