Fascinating. This man's passion is helping to take us into the future. He's developing a new branch of technology--Advanced Folding?--based on origami, and that's pretty amazing.

This is what happens to you when you retire from an extremely top secret job. They either send you to a retirement "village " Or fry your brain, depending on how much they can learn from you.

punko Sure they didn't start "treatments" already? You're not getting any urges to do any thing "harmlessly crafty" are you?
