I for one am completely ok with 3D printed parts needing to meet the same safety standards required for their non-printed equivalents. The last thing I need is to take a tire to the face because some bozo with no relevant engineering background decided to stick it to the man by making a new axle for his car on a jumbo sized RepRap. That said, there could be safety standards for home-printed parts along the lines of "this geometry printed using XYZ materials on a printer meeting these minimum specifications is equivalent to the original part", but actually doing the testing may be prohibitively expensive for certain industries.
Any particular reason for Python 2.6 over 2.7?
I came here to post just this. I now have an overwhelming urge to degauss an old CRT monitor.
That's just the problem, the classes were stupid easy. I had a friend make this mistake going into electrical engineering. All of the STEM people from his community college had their credits transfer just fine, but then they promptly got their asses kicked in their first real-college engineering class because the community college didn't actually prepare them sufficiently. Some went as far as to retake some of their CC courses at the 4-year school because they realized how far behind they were. 5-6 year graduation times all around.
Even without a proper forklift, a simple manual hydraulic pallet jack will leave you much better off than an unpalletized load for all but the heaviest pallets.
Show me a RepRap that can print its own belts and motors and assembled PCBs and then we'll talk.
A tablet is not a phone. If you can hold that 7" tablet in one hand and navigate with the thumb of the same hand, you might be Andre the Giant. Do you fit that tablet in your pants pocket too?
What, are they not measuring screen sizes diagonally anymore?
I don't care how many pixels you stuff in there, it doesn't matter if the monster 5.5" screen doesn't fit in my hand.

Not gonna lie, I saw that you misspelled women and immediately ceased to take you seriously. Hope you're a troll.
Doesn't make sense for a laptop, but it's a common paradigm on mobile devices. There's flight sims etc. for Android/iOS where you steer by tilting your device like a little kid making racecar noises.
Yes, IT is a terrible field for making use of calculus. Try engineering, especially fields like control systems. My boss has a PhD in control engineering and he can basically take a signal and turn it inside out and backwards to find out whatever he wants because he knows off the top of his head what kind of curve he'll get if he, say, integrates the signal twice.
