...and this is why we can't have nice things.

Engineering student develops large 8'x8'x8' concrete 3D printer in his garage

http://flip.it/3AhzQ
Mechanical engineering student Alex Le Roux from Baylor University focused his sight on developing his own extrusion-based 3D printer. The result is a RepRap-based 8’ x ‘8’ x 8’ 3D concrete printer that’s inspired in-part by the work being done by larger international companies.

The Fifth Element – Element Stone-Inspired Candle Holders How-To
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/08/03/the-fifth-element-element-stone-inspired-candle-holders-how-to/

In The Fifth Element, the element stones are brick-like objects with the potential to become a powerful weapon. Instructables user antagonizer often makes prop replicas, but he prefers them to have “form and function.” If the replica doesn’t work in the same way it did in the film — which the element stones can’t do — he wants it to have some sort of function other than looking pretty. Given those parameters, he turned the element stones into beautiful candle holders. They’re made from wood beams and stone and acrylic paints. Each stone has a different pattern that he cut in with a router. Here’s how he made the earth stone:

The earth stone was the easiest of the bunch. The best place to start is with the back cuts since they go all the way through. With the router set in the table, I installed the 1/4″ straight bit and adjusted it to a cutting depth of 1/4″. I then moved the guard back 4″ from the bit creating a small .5″ gap between the piece and the blade. Next I marked, directly on the table a line running 45 degrees to the guard and passing directly through the center of the bit. From there I marked 6 additional lines to the left, and 6 more to the right of the center line, at 7/8″ spacing between them. This would create the distance, on center for each of the grooves in the stone.

An image taken by a Japanese satellite launch on 7 October 2014 has snapped the true colour of planet Earth (shown). The image from the Himawari-8 weather satellite shows Earth's natural colour.

So in a moment of crazy motivation (thanks +Ben Ford) I've added Couch to 5K to my weekly fitness regimen which now looks something like this: Start the day with stretching routine and 50 jumping jacks or as many Bastardo's (Burpee + Pushup) as I can do (thanks +David Ford) Then whatever I didn't do in the morning, I do in the afternoon and add leg lifts and/or sit-ups.

Now to find my running shoes and shorts...

I was never a fitness guy. Not obese, but I sit behind a keyboard most of my life so I developed a bit of 30-something pudge around the middle. Then the sciatica, a couple ER resulting back spasms, my dad...
