You've obviously never done construction... there's no market for 7' 11" walls, 8 foot walls, and 8' 1" walls when 8 foot walls will work fine.... goto a lumber store, you'll fine 2x4, 2x6, and 2x8, etc. Why? It's not like the saw couldn't be easily be programmed to cut out a 2x3.75453 board it's just no one cares.
And even for the options you would need available you could have 1000s of molds for the price of one of these printers.... 1000s of molds that can all be working at once while this printer can only doing one thing at a time.

While 3d printing is cool and all what advantage does 'printing' concrete slabs offer or normal precast molds and just pouring the concrete in the old fashion way?
The article doesn't make it clear, but since this is a company and not an experiment one has to assume they see sort of useful reason in doing it this way, but for the life of me I don't see what it is.
If you're using a mold for concrete it's almost literally as fast as you can pour the concrete when using one...

That makes sense IF the person made some sort of mistake. For example if someone posts 'hey guys check out this crazy punch from UFC' and uploads short clip of it to you tube. The probably helps the company as free advertising more than any sort of copyright infringement.
Someone who uploads 124 full fights to several different sites knows exactly what they're doing and are just give the finger to Zuffa; they deserve the full fury of the law upon them.

This is true.
The Bronze star while being a 'combat' medal doesn't require one to participate in combat to receive it. And in fact sets the bar pretty low with only requiring ' meritorious achievement or service'.
This new medal's requirement of 'extraordinary achievement' would indeed seem to place it higher then the bronze star. Point of fact 'extraordinary' is the same wording found on the service crosses; the second highest award after only the medal of honor. Where as one can find meritorious achievement as a requirement on something as common as a Achievement medal (The military's "good job" awards).

In our old building we use to have a quite robust snack locker system with some of the bigger ones probably doing 100 dollars of business a day and well stocked with every imaginable sugary treat.
But when we moved to our new site the bosses signed a ‘non-compete clause’ with the cafeteria in the building.. I’ve seen less complaining about people being forced to do yearlong deployments to Afghanistan then I did the day our snacks died.

Why do we have to be humorless nerds? Some of us do really pay negitive taxes.

Child care credit $1,200
Education credits $810
Retirement savings contribution credit $200
Residential energy credit $1,309
Additional child tax credit $2,000
American opportunity credit $540

I paid ~3k in withholdings this year but am getting ~5.6k back
The government is giving me over 2500 dollars for living in this country.... negitive taxes :)
