    An type of art seldom exhibited in museums consists of those clever things  found posted in cubicles at tech companies. I took a tour of such a company with a group one evening and the cubicles I happened to walk by were the highlight.

    What does one do with the leftover parts?   I followed the directions scrupulously but still had a handful of protons when I finished……
