I bid on this lathe not expecting to win it, but hey, be careful what you bid on, you just might get it! So Raphael from the rigging company that listed it was nice enough to send two of his guys over with a forklift to un...

I wish I had a place to put this little guy. Needs a bit of restoration.
It weighs about as much as a full sized car.

This is from the EPD's squad room update:
"Three years ago, a rap video by 17 year-old Chicago rapper Chief Keef (recorded when he was under house arrest) slammed a rival gang.  Lil JoJo, a member of that gang, responded in kind. A weeks-long online war ensued that captured the attention of rap fans and social media followers everywhere. When Lil JoJo was shot dead on the back of a friend’s bicycle, a retaliatory call-to-arms erupted that resulted in a round of killings.  I think I forgot to mention that the rap tune that sparked this series of murders won Chief Keef a $6 million deal with a record company."

Rap labels and big money rappers like Kanye ate this stuff up and saw big $$$. This was all circa 2012, but the same thing continues. Bangers don't bang on the street. Talking shit and showing off your armory on Youtube makes you an instant gangsta rap star. Nobody's shooting yet. A few days later the retaliation starts, innocent bystanders get shot and killed. I'm not saying social media is the REASON for the big rise in gang violence in Chicago. It is a big part of the cycle though, and it promises a lot more fame than graffiti or any other 'analog' form of gang-banging.

The delta configuration for robots is neat, but building one 10' mud hut in a WEEK is not going to help too many refugees. Delta bots are mostly used in parts picking and packing due to their large range of movement and speed.

"Hillary Clinton had everything she needed to crush Bernie Sanders, all the money, all the staff, all the expertise, all the rep. But she didn't. Talking about that finish as trouble for Sanders is delusional. He came from worse than nowhere with less than nothing and missed it by a sliver."

Exactly. I was expecting Bernie to fizzle out like Ron Paul, expecting all the support to be just shallow internet hype but this was nuts. The playing field is changing thankfully. I was really nervous because lobbying has turned into battle of the better tech teams backing these candidates, but it looks like there's more than money that can tilt an election. Hope, finally.
