The Crazy Joys Of Driving In The Snow

Service is the rent we pay for the privilege of living on this planet.

Luck is what happens when opportunity meets up with being in the right place at the right time.

There was just one problem.

He was riding his lawn mower in the dead of winter in a snow blizzard! You can imagine how bizzare that looked. 🙂

Hello All. Take a look at this video. It shows the humorous and not-so-humorous video quickies (at least to the unwary drivers, that is) of the joys of driving in that wonderful white stuff we call snow:

6. Mockery.org (Not mensa): a virtual society of idiots
If there is a society for the highly intellectual, then there is also a society for the stupid—called Not mensa.

You can apply for free idiot membership by taking their IQ test.

 

An AMAZING 3D-Printed Shoe!!!

An actual golden shoe that was printed on a 3D printer. Imagine one day being able to print your own shoes!

It was a huge year for 3-D printing technology, which touched everything from sports to chemistry to firearms. Advances in 3-D fabrication enabled some amazing feats of design and ingenuity this year: on-demand running shoes, labware, even body parts.

As with any groundbreaking technology, controversy arose, whether it was over a 3-D printed key that can crack open handcuffs or a 3-D printed firearm that could give average Joes on-demand access to guns–no five-day waiting period required.

But even the projects that raised ethical questions or exposed our legal framework to gaping gray areas are, in their own ways, technological triumphs–proof of 3-D printing’s vast potential and popular momentum. ~ PopSci.com
