If they could combine a direct metal laser sintering device with this, then we get additive and subtractive manufacturing in one device

My wife quotes Julia Child "I could tell you how to cook a carrot, but I couldn't tell you how to cook that carrot". If you're going to have a cool robot cook from pre-portioned processed mise, you're better off just buying a microwave and a frozen dinner. 
 
A robot that cooks! WOW...

Sometimes I wonder if people read all of snowcrash. It is as it they get as far as sword practice in the 'verse (cool, man) and then stop reading before the gargoyles are slain by raven and hated by everyone. (maybe vr all the time isn't smart)

Impostor syndrome is a thing, I guess, but I prefer 'total fraud' syndrome, where you imagine yourself to be a rakish con-man grifting the world so slyly that no one has called you on it yet. 

It's more fun than impostor syndrome, and the outfits are nicer.

Doctors traced an Arkansas man's kidney failure to an unusual cause - his habit of drinking nearly four litres of iced tea each day.

The meatspace equivalent to not wiping your devices before getting rid of them...
 
They say no press is bad press...

When Texas plumber Mark Oberholtzer traded in his black Ford F-250 pickup truck, he expected it would live a second life in the hands of new owners, but probably not these owners.

Oberholtzer's Texas City plumbing company, Mark-1 Plumbing, has been inundated with threats after a photo of his old Ford work truck appeared on a terrorist Twitter feed, equipped with an anti-aircraft gun in the bed and still bearing the company logo on the door.
Mark-1 Plumbing's old truck showed up on Twitter as a Syrian terrorist weapon, with Mark-1's phone number on the door. Not good.

I thought this a legal issue, not a tech issue, that faxes were legally binding in a way that merely scanned/emailed documents aren't.  Anyone know enough to confirm/deny that?
