What is there in this that is unbearable and beyond endurance?
- 89% of Americans pay for help with their taxes
- $400bn in taxes were owed but not collected
- The US tax code is 4 MILLION words long
- 3 million man-years are spent complying with the tax code each year

Nothing is difficult, only unfamiliar
When I wrote about 3D printing and firearms on TechCrunch in August 2012, I thought we were 3-4 years away from a fully 3D printed gun.
Now it’s here, and the policy makers are going to start making decisions soon. My point now, as it was last year, is that regulation is pointless. Anybody who wants a gun can get one, regardless is we want them to or not.
Maybe I’m wrong, and there is a way to effectively regulate 3D printing. But from what I know, I don’t think there is.

One of my best productivity hacks has been to leave my laptop cord far away from me. That way, I have to stay on task in order to fully accomplish what I need to accomplish by the time my MacBook Air dies.
I find that not fighting my own tendencies towards procrastination and instead forcing myself to get things done has been very beneficial.
