"Science is simply common sense at its best"

There is a single light of science, and to brighten it anywhere is to brighten it everywhere.  ~Isaac Asimov

Ho-Lee Crapola.

(Warning: Some people may think the picture is a bit gory.)

A 22-year-old woman from the Netherlands who suffers from a chronic bone disorder -- which has increased the thickness of her skull from 1.5cm to 5cm, causing reduced eyesight and severe headaches -- has had the top section of her skull removed and replaced with a 3D printed implant.

Ain't science wonderful?
