That link is valuable....I value it at $0, as well.

Captain Kirk, is that you?
A classic. Gotta love Sir Michael.
Every dollar store sells USB wall chargers. I just don't see, given I can buy as many wall chargers as I want for between one and two dollars a pop, why we care that CES had companies selling overpriced chargers.
But as there is no specific national standard for 3D printing architecture, we need to revise and improve such a standard for the future.
Um, why would the standards be any different than those already in place for any building? Just becuase it was "3D printed" doesn't mean we should change our standards, does it?

An attack on the UK was "highly likely" and MI5 could not give a guarantee it would be able to stop it, he said.
So, if he gets these new powers, he will guarantee that they can stop the attacks? Suuuuuuuuuure.
...and move them closer to the house on the next night, so that they are looking in the windows. Hell yeah.
Substitute Nazi for Christian and see if you'd support "non-violent Naziism".
See what I did there?
Black Like Me was a really good read. Well worth the time, although I imagine it's pretty dated by now.
"Black Like Me is a nonfiction book by journalist John Howard Griffin first published in 1961. Griffin was a white native of Dallas, Texas and the book describes his six-week experience travelling on Greyhound buses (occasionally hitchhiking) throughout the racially segregated states of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia passing as a black man. Sepia Magazine financed the project in exchange for the right to print the account first as a series of articles.
Griffin kept a journal of his experiences; the 188-page diary was the genesis of the book.
At the time of the book's writing in 1959, race relations in America were particularly strained and Griffin aimed to explain the difficulties that black people faced in certain areas. Under the care of a doctor, Griffin artificially darkened his skin to pass as a black man."
You've got a little boy. He shows you his butterfly collection plus the killing jar. What do you do?
The poster you replied to specifically said "an ordinary espresso machine"; from your reply ("waste") I gather that you are unfamiliar with how a typical home espresso machine works. They typically make one (or some larger machines two) cups of espresso at a time, and they use steam forced through a reusable metal cup with tiny holes in it. There is no extra coffe to get cold, there is not even a filter to toss away: just take out the cup and tap it with the metal part of the handle that twists off when you release teh cup, and the grounds fall into the garbage/compost bucket (coffee grounds make great compost). The steam means that the cup is sanitized on every use, so you don't need to wash it more than once a month or so, and measuring a couple of spoons of fresh coffee into the cup is super easy and quick.
If you are afraid that a home espresso maker is not going to make a nice "regular" cup of coffee, you might be surprised to find that if you buy some nice coffee and try it out, it will likely make a much nicer cup of coffee than your k-cup machine; the beans are the most important thing about your coffee.
They aren't afforded all the rights of an adult. For example, they cannot vote in any election, neither Federal nor Provincial.
That particular episode had my entire family helpless with tears from laughing so hard.
CBC did a report on this, it seems that Zoosk has a deal with Facebook where they get all your info, so that creating a full profile (with picture) is a "one click" automated process. As soon as you agree to join Zoosk, you have a full profile.
So, applying Occam's razor to this story, the simplest explanation is that she accidentally clicked the "OK" or "Next" button instead of the "Cancel" or "Close" button, right?
