I’m guessing the reason why people 15-26 years old have such an affinity for stories where the main character starts a journey away from their homeland is because we, ourselves, want to get out of the lives we lead at home, and are at the tender age where we’re learning what we see as “how we want to live” but we don’t have enough money to afford it yet.
So we run away to Narnia, to Hogwarts, to the next kingdom over, to escape traditions and the dusty life our parents gave us.
There’s still an affinity for such stories at slightly older ages and for many of the same reasons (escape, liberation, self-discovery, validation), but perhaps with a bit more desperation to them.

Turning Trash Into Treasure with 3D Printing
A Seattle entrepreneur wants to take recycling to a whole new level. Working together with a local inventor, she has developed a machine that turns plastic bottles into 3D printing filament allowing makers to literally turn their trash into newly created treasures.
This makes me very, very happy. I’ve always been hoping that this technology would be developed, and now it is.
We are one step closer to replicator technology, my friends, when our landfills will become goldmines of raw material.
