Assuming that I fix my 3D printer today, I am going to start churning out facemasks in the below model. They are intended to be filled with cut-up A/C filters, etc. They can supposedly be fitted to your face by microwaving them a bit to soften them, and be sterilized by putting them in the oven. I have not tested this yet. MOre to come

oops i found out that my favorite country singer is a big trump fan and an election conspiracy theorist, and i'm not surprised, i'm just sad and disappointed

as a side note, the texas secretary of state website allows you to download the election results as an Excel file, but that file leaves out the political party affiliation of the candidates. which blows.
