Sorry but Babs Boxer takes a backseat to this particular entry.  Look below for discussion on her particular psychological dysfunction.

This mini-post is about my current intellectual erection.  This is so cool I’m going to run out and buy cigarettes just for that “after sex” feeling.

Shapeways 3D Printing

I do solid modeling daily – every day in my work.  I also love to raytrace/render as a hobby along with graphics in general.  So when I saw this site which allows you to upload your 2-manifold models and have them “printed” then cast in stainless or ABS and other plastics my brain went SCHWING!!!!

I’m going to post an image to whet your appetite – go to their site and see what they can do.  Think of it as free advertising, Shapeway.  I’ll take the image down if you like but I’m plugging for you guys.  The piece below is by Bathsheba and there’s other stuff by Bathsheba Grossman here.

Is this not one of the coolest damn things you've seen in a long time?

I know I can use Solidworks and it looks like Blender3D can be used as well (it outputs STL files).


Babs gets knocked out again.

Remember last week, the government panel of “experts” that ruled that mammograms for women under 50 were not recommended?

Here’s their apology today:

The task force, made up of doctors and scientists, acknowledged the way in which the recommendations were released wasn’t done very smoothly — and the timing wasn’t great either, right in the middle of a heated debate on health care.

I beg to differ.  It is the PERFECT time to put out recommendations because they just gave us a taste of what is going to happen if this “health care reform” is passed – essentially the gov’t making all kinds of stupid decrees like this as they ration off all sorts of things that they aren’t really experts on.  Had they actually been experts in this field they would not have come to that conclusion.

It was the perfect time.  I couldn’t have asked for a better time.


The ever-so-enlightened queen moonbat of the libtards has spoken.  I’m actually somewhat surprised because I thought not even she would utter something this stupid.

Boxer … said that the recently released e-mails, showing scientists allegedly overstating the case for climate change, should be treated as a crime.

“You call it ‘Climategate’; I call it ‘E-mail-theft-gate,'” she said during a committee meeting. “Whatever it is, the main issue is, Are we facing global warming or are we not? I’m looking at these e-mails, that, even though they were stolen, are now out in the public.”

Projection by proxy?  What the hell do you call her stance beyond “weird”?

Certainly shows a huge lack of ability to put competing issues in proper perspective.  On one had we have a whistleblower who hacked a guy’s computer.  On the other hand we have “a guy” and his cohorts who systematically alter, fabricate, massage, delete, and misconstrue data as well as like to cover it up, and then they go on to ride a gravy train while convincing most of the rest of the world – those that are unable to think for themselves, that is – that the world is going to end in a ball of flame and lots of warm water.

All at the expense of literally trillions of dollars, entire economies altered, many many jobs lost.

Yeah, I guess figuring out a guy’s password is a pretty damn big deal.
