Nor can Bill Maher/Chris Matthews/Ed Schultz, etc., etc., and the left wing press hide theirs.

What's your point?

Imagine a future in which someone made a donut just for you -- with just the right amount of calories and maybe some extra fiber for good measure. Except that someone is a machine, and the donut is 3D printed based on the personal health data you've given it.

Researchers at Cornell University's Fab@Home lab demonstrated a printer that did something similar with cookies. Two people fed information about their height, weight and BMI into the printer, which baked two deceptively identical-looking snowflake-shaped cookies that actually comprised different ingredients based on each person's nutritional requirements.

Unlike violins, whose shape and sound doesn't stray far from the classic standard, there's a lot more freedom in guitar design and material use. Pictured above is a fully functional, 3D-printed Gibson Les Paul, displayed at last year's Maker Faire exhibition.

It's also possible to print acoustic guitars. Designer Scott Summit printed one last year, having spent his childhood lusting after a $3,000 model like Jerry Garcia's. He didn't have high expectations for the guitar's sound quality, but apparently it works alright. Summit is already envisioning a future where musicians order custom guitars to produce unique sounds.

I love how the left celebrates failures and lies! They are the 2 pillars of the Democratic party. Without failures or lies the Democratic party would cease to exist!

Expectant parents often show off ultrasound scans to friends and family, whose responses may range from enthused to wising the couple would chill out already. Thanks to 3D printing though, a mother-to-be can now capture everyone's attention with a life-size model of her fetus.

Fasotec, a Japanese 3D printing company, and Tokyo's Hiroo Ladies clinic began a service that produces the replicas by scanning a pregnant woman's abdomen. The fetus (which, to be clear, is left unharmed to become a real, live human being) is printed with clear filament so we can all see the semi-formed baby inside, printed in ghostly white. Not creepy at all.

This one is for you Lily.

It's time to step back and congratulate ourselves -- mankind has advanced to the point of printing in chocolate. Artists in South Africa used another modified MakerBot machine to produce 3D-printed chocolate sculptures as part of a campaign to promote Android's new KitKat operating system.

The collection was displayed at the Museum of African Design in Johannesburg for a few days last week as part of an exhibit called Chocnology.

Mechanics -- and Jay Leno -- have been using 3D printers to make replacement auto parts for years. This capability could prove especially useful for soldiers in the field who might be caught miles away from a repair station.

In two years, a couple of 20-something brothers are slated to drive a 3D-printed car cross-country, when the design is ready. The pod-like thing, named Urbee 2, is efficiently aerodynamic and gets an impressive 300 miles to the gallon. Cody and Tyler Kor, along with their dog, plan on tracing the path driven by the first two men to traverse the U.S. by motor vehicle.

Mayor de Blasio and his security detail crossed a Brooklyn street against the light Friday on his way to his morning workout – just a day after his SUV blew through two stop signs and was speeding in Queens.

Exclusive video caught the mayor — dressed in a “Brooklyn” sweatshirt, slacks and sneakers — chatting on his cellphone as he sauntered across 11th Street on 6th Avenue in Park Slope, ignoring the orange hand on the traffic signal that clearly warns pedestrians not to cross.

Hizzoner’s NYPD handlers faithfully crossed with him. They were in the crosswalk but were jaywalking because they did not have the light.

In January, NYPD precincts launched an aggressive jaywalking ticket blitz that had de Blasio’s support.

His Friday morning flouting of traffic safety rules came a day after deBlasio was caught on camera riding shotgun in a speeding SUV.

His mayoral black two-unit convoy was videotaped by a CBS 2 News crew as it blew through two stop signs in Queens and clocked at nearly 60 miles an hour in a 45 mile per hour zone, and 40 -45 mph in a 30 mph zone. They were not using lights or sirens.

You're crazy and very confused little feller. Design is one thing__printing is another.

Maybe you should enroll in a local community college and actually learn about all this sht that you only have a hunch about.

Boeing uses Stratasys's 3D printers to make some components, and is constantly working on more ways to use the technology. The airline company has even built an entire cabin using one of Stratasys's 3D printers.

As of last year, Boeing has produced more than 20,000 3D-printed parts. Its used those pieces in 10 different types of military and commercial airplanes, like the luxurious Dreamliner. The Dreamliner has about 30 3D-printed parts.

We are reminded of the dangers of consensus science in the past. For example, in the 18th century, more British sailors died of scurvy than died in battle. In this disease, brought on by a lack of vitamin C, the body loses its ability to manufacture collagen, and gums and other tissues bleed and disintegrate. These deaths were especially tragic because many sea captains and some ships' doctors knew, based on observations early in the century, that fresh vegetables and citrus cured scurvy.
Nonetheless, the British Admiralty's onshore Sick and Health Board of scientists and physicians (somewhat akin to the current Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) dismissed this evidence for more than 50 years because it did not fit their consensus theory that putrefaction (or internal decay) caused scurvy, which they felt could be cured by fresh air, exercise and laxatives.
"Consensus" science that ignores reality can have tragic consequences if cures are ignored or promising research is abandoned. The climate-change consensus is not endangering lives, but the way it imperils economic growth and warps government policy making has made the future considerably bleaker. The recent Obama administration announcement that it would not provide aid for fossil-fuel energy in developing countries, thereby consigning millions of people to energy poverty, is all too reminiscent of the Sick and Health Board denying fresh fruit to dying British sailors.
We should not have a climate-science research program that searches only for ways to confirm prevailing theories, and we should not honor government leaders, such as Secretary Kerry, who attack others for their inconvenient, fact-based views.
Messrs. McNider and Christy are professors of atmospheric science at the University of Alabama in Huntsville and fellows of the American Meteorological Society. Mr. Christy was a member of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change that shared the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize with former Vice President Al Gore. Mr. Christy was a member of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change that shared the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize with Vice President Al Gore.
"Another week, another error-riddled piece of climate nonsense in Rupert Murdoch’s Wall Street Journal. This time it’s by one of the world’s most debunked disinformers John Christy, in a piece headlined “Why Kerry Is Flat Wrong on Climate Change.”

Christy is upset that Kerry characterized people like him — who reject the scientific consensus on human-caused warming accepted by 97% of climate scientists — as part of the “Flat Earth Society.” Christy thinks you should believe him, despite the fact that he has been consistently wrong."

The scurvy example is beyond stupid & actually better describes the deniers.

If we believe deniers like Christy, we would ignore the greenhouse gas & global warming & do nothing.

Yet we know what the solution is - less greenhouse gas emissions & yet Christy refuses to act.

Christy reasoning would say that smoking is good for you because the consensus says smoking is unhealthy & causes cancer.

Flacktard hunting for excuses why he should screw over his children's future so he can save a few bucks on his electric bill.

If Rush Limbaugh would have produced "The inconvenient Truth", you right whiners would all have your roofs covered in panels, have windmills & be protesting the Keystone pipeline.

Romney supporter Ted Nugent: Pedophile? He says so!
Romney’s Ted Nugent problem is about to get a whole lot worse if the mainstream media ever decides to report that Mittens has not rebuked a self-admitted pedophile. In a 1998 episode of VH1’s Behind The Music, Ted Nugent admitted to being a serial pedophile. VH1 politely phrased this as,“his weakness for young women.”
http://www.examiner.com/article/romney-suppor...
isn't he, like, on FOX all the time?
So your definition of a pedophile is a 25 year old male dating a 17 year old? This is what he admitted to. Are you even aware of that or are you just regurgitating your liberal talking points of the day?

And yet you use the disingenuous phrase "Ted Nugent admitted to being a serial pedophile".

If that is the case then you will have no problem producing a clip of the interview in which he stated this then will you. I'm sure no one will hold their breath waiting for what does not exist.
