makes (almost) anything


make a human

so it's the first day of fall, sitting in e14-633,
watching neil's muppet sing "oh baby, i like you documenting like that..."
when my wife texts me.
her contractions have become regular and her mucus plug has fallen out.
i gotta finish watching this muppet song. then I run out of class and drive home.

my son was born the next day.
and so for extra credit, i present this human.

my wife did most of the making, i just provided some code.
... anything else i make will pale in comparison


person = 1013 cells*105 ribosomes/cell*1 Hz = 1018 parts/sec = 100 supercomputers/sec
