Re: this one goes out to the watch guys out there....

Personally I won't buy a battery driven watch that doesn't also charge itself. I have had terrible luck with them. I've moved on to automatics and am much happier. Though there is nothing wrong with a manual wind watch. The only electronic watch I've had any luck with is a Timex solar powered one. B...

Re: "Bored" Teens Kill College Athlete

On second thought, let's bring back crucifixion. Hanging, even with death by strangulation, is a relatively quick death. A proper crucifixion can provide object lesions for days before they just become hanging corpses. Besides, it's really the ecological alternative. You can use the crosses over and...

I think it was Lockheed that I saw was experimenting with a 3d printer for space applications. IIRC it printed metal in a plastic matrix that would burn off once the part was heated enough. The end result was supposed to be a usable metal part that was a bit smaller than the printed part.

This makes me think of a whole new business model. Chicken trade ins, once they stop laying, the hipsters bring them in and trade them for chicks. You then monetize the chickens by turning them into organic dog food at an outrageous profit.
