I think he's talking about that chemist's wet dream that is the label of most heavily processed junk food.
That and they can add G23 Paxeline Hydrochloride to the food powders to calm the population and weed out aggression. I wonder if there'll be any side effects? Nah!
On the contrary, They'd come up with a whole new bunch of GenMod crops to corner the Ag part of printable foods and then lobby Congress to make certain that only their crop could be used in the making of printed food.
Yeah, instead you want to lay down fine layers of ingredients the expose it to a high frequency standing wave to mix materials at the antinodes. You introduce fibers and sheets of material this way and create all kinds of density changes giving it very complex structure. I want something that could print Sushi!
Here's a little extrusion... just for you!

"They are taking a virgin tech and trying to make it MANDATORY."
I find it amusing that a site which rails against pant-on-head-retarded proposed restrictions on COMPUTERS has so many firearm-tech-illiterate folks on it.
Dear Willful Fucktards:
If you are too lazy to make the minimal effort to understand the VERY simple (compared to compared to computers) technology behind firearms, SHUT THE FUCK UP until you actually know whereof you speak. How dare you have an opinion on tech you don't understand?
Thousands of dead children and adults are the price you pay for stupid people, but they are a very reasonable price to pay to embed the capability for both self-defense and revolution in the American public.
Crime rates are very low, we are a huge nation, and if you consider that homicide rates among good citizens are very, very low, it's even less a problem. (Not all the casualties matter because hood rats offing each other is pure good.)
How about some outrage over the many things that kill hundreds of thousands of your fellows in less newsworthy ways? No? Thought not.
26 officers over ten years is a TINY casualty rate, not worth bothering about.
How many did obesity and other medical conditions cripple or kill during the same period?
Don't imply all suicide is a loss or that ease of suicide is always a negative.
Honest insightful discussion of why people elect to SHORTEN their own lives is overdue in the US and rest of the world.
As more and more of us live lives prolonged into crippled dementia by modern medical technology, suicide will be a reasonable and logically defensible choice for many people.
Sorry if someone checked out and made you unhappy thereby, but I'm GUARANTEED a slow, prolonged, very nasty dying process due to a combination of various spinal/neurological problems plus Alzheimers if I live into my seventies.
I'll check out in a way that can't be used against the Second Amendment by idiots, but check out I will, and my remaining loved ones already understand and support that option for myself and themselves.
You may have a Sky Fairie (prove he/she/it exists or fuck off, I don't respect delusions nor is there reason I should) giving you marching orders, but as a free thinker who owns his own body I shall do my will to the extent practical according to my situation.
But why call it "void" and why call it a "function" if it doesn't return something?
This is something VB got right: distinguishing functions from subroutines. I don't know that it was ultimately helpful beyond the obvious pedagogical benefits, but it the distinction is valid and reasonable.
To be honest, I kind of see his point.
Even a blind squirrel gets a nut once in a while. Try as he might, he can't be wrong all the time.
There are tons of them. Do a google search.
No, because history shows that big corporations buying start-ups never turns out well. The big corp has no idea how to effectively use the new start-up, and its potential (assuming it had any) ends up being wasted.
Of course, most start-ups go nowhere too. But of those lucky few that succeed, we do get things like Google, Yahoo (back when they were successful), and Facebook (ugh).
