I am pro science, but today let's look at some of the problems with science.

Back home, the field glasses helped me take a closer look at the surroundings and get me a clearer understanding of where our apartment was located, vis a vis other prominent structures in the vicinity and beyond.
I have carried the Binoculars while on some personal outings…Continue
