OK, I might even buy that. I'm registered Republican. But the party is going to have to do a better job in terms of fielding candidates than the right wing-nut losers that they've been digging up. The Republicans have a number of center - right politicians with brains, the problem is the rest of the party has neither brains nor cojones.
What was left unsaid (by the dolphins) was how many times the critters have found 'unintended' things and not told their handlers about it, but instead squirreled it away to their underwater hideout, planning for the eventual overthrow of human kind. They just felt that since this was so old and unusable, there was no harm in telling the Navy guys.
Besides, they were hungry and wanted a snack.
You got the money, honey - I've got the time.
With iOS? Good luck with that.
Daylight Savings Time and whammo! No Skynet.
Have you seen how much a maintenance contract (aka Health Insurance) on YOU runs?
At the rate we're going in the US, they can afford to put your Z-series hardware on your health insurance premium as an inexpensive rider.
The damned thing's immortal.
IBM has found the secret to everlasting life!
Surely, there is some money to be made here?
Look, you guys don't get it, do you? You never get this sort of thing.
Of course Flikr and Tumblr will mix well. They both end in a contracted 'r'.
It's pretty clear why you all aren't in business.
You've got the wrong burr up your butt.
The money we give to large corporations though 'incentives', policies, military support, unneeded contracts and a host of other subsidies makes all of those 'welfare queens' that you're so worried about less important than a rounding error.
Let the little stuff slide. Deal with important things first.
And look at where you are now. Sunday morning. Slashdot.
Seems like you've gone downhill there, old boy.
What's even more heartwarming is the AC techs kind and gentle transplanting of live ants into the warm and cuddly confines of the electrical boxes.
My comment was pointing out that 3D printing has yet to change much of anything and starting down the road to seriously legislatively restrict the technology because of some ill founded fears isn't very useful (except perhaps to Government who wants yet another handle to control folks).
You can already obtain ceramic / plastic composite weapons. You can already make a zip gun out of heavy plastic tubing without the stupid 3D printer. It's really a straw man argument.
You could make one with a 3D printer.
OK. So we have a world where people can sneak around with
Lions and tigers and bears. Oh. My.
Plastic gun printing changes absolutely nothing. The current stamping and seizing about this is simply panem et circenses.
Where's the kaboom? You call that an earth shattering kaboom?
It's relatively easy to get a small amount of highly radioactive material, say Cobalt-60, used in medical isotope generation. A little goes a long way if you're just trying to upset people by making a Geiger counter go nuts. Break into some decommissioned Russian hospital, some third world facility with poor security or steal it in NYC. A couple of sticks of dynamite, a timer and panic time.*
