There's NO such thing as a God given right
Yes I know. That's why I put a "rolling eyes" smiley after the comment. It was meant as a "tongue in check" remark.
This ^ coming from a person who started a psychpathic following on forums where the lunatic fringe frequently frequent. Keep going like that and you're going to confuse yourself, let alone others, and that would likely mean your expulsion from The Collective. You can't be Psychopathic AND tongue-in-cheek at the same time, so really, you need to decide which you are before they boot you for infecting the Collective Consciousness with indecisiveness. And no time to procrastinate... they don't like that, either.
Seriously, though, I had figured that. However, I just wanted to say my piece about 3D printers being used for nefarious purposes and how they need to be regulated so the less than lawful - idiots, too - cannot use them to manufacture weapons and the like. Society has too many reasons to exact vengeance, and giving the aggrieved even easier access to guns would result in even more school yard shootings... not to mention street and gang violence escalating because they're emboldened behind a firearm.
Given the spate of recent school yard shooting, the escalation of gang wars and armed robberies over the years, for anyone to say US society is a safer place with civilians owning/having easy access guns is sheer lunacy... to put it as politely as I can.
Anyway, enough of that, we're supposed to be discussing 3D printers.
I wouldn't get a 3D printer, can't think of one thing I would want to print. Yeah I know, sad, but I would save money.
I dunno, Philly, wot is we gonna do with you? I mean, c'mon, man, fire up yer imagination and come up with something you'd really, really like but could never afford, etc.
I will have to admit thay my wish for medical 3D printing has an ulterior motive behind it. Sure, let's have 3D printing to assist the medical fraternity with manufactured body parts, thus saving lives with shortened transplant waiting lists, but me, I just wanna print all the body parts required so's I can sew them together to make me a couple of hookers. Yes, it sounds a bit Frankensteinish, I know, but they could then bring home the bacon and make me a very happy bloke in 'so many' more ways.
Never thought of myself as being a pimp before, but hey, times is hard and ends aren't meeting as well as they used to. S'pose the other thing I'd have to print is Viagra, otherwise the happiness would be purely monetary, and I do seek much more to life than a few bucks to tide me over.
