Welcome to the fifty-third installment of Your Comments. Here are our favorites from the past week, from Makezine, our Facebook page, and Twitter.

In 3D Systems Suing Formlabs and Kickstarter for Patent Infringement, Rob Giseburt nominated bhenry’s comment for this column:

Man invents wheel. Man patents wheel. Civilization never happens.

In the piece The Gift of Something to Make, Ismail N remarks:

This is an honest poem, and hits me right at my nose, so to speak. It is so easy and tempting to just buy instead of make. And helping our kids to start the adventure of making is truly a challenge, especially in this modern world of fast lanes, less time. But thanks to this reminder, I have started.

In the article Watch Parts Made into Mechanical Creatures, Facebook user Brandon Mckinney says:

That’s pretty cool looking, i could all most imagine setting this one or a bunch of them up next to some G. I. JOE figures. Look like these creatures would be trying to take them on or some thing that they be checking out? But none the less a cool looking item, wonder how long it took to make this?

In response to MAKE and 3D Printing, Twitter user Jason J. Gullickson says:

Just finished @Makemagazine’s 3D Printing special; great resource and I especially like the back cover

In the article Massoud Hassani’s Mine Kafon, Bashtarle writes:

It makes me sad, such an elegant thing with such a tragic purpose. Seeing things like this make me wish I lived in a world where interesting things like this didn’t have a purpose.

In the article Young Maker Wows M.I.T., user nathan beasley says:

Why is he not on a full ride somewhere. I would love to help him. What could he make if he could actually have the opportunity that most of us take for granted.
