Re: Amazon Skeet
Isn't this a far more elegant solution than blasting away uselessly away at the sky like a drunken redneck?
How many failed Amazon deliveries would it take before I was allowed to call in an airstrike on the neighbours?
Huh. There are plenty of 'pieces of sporting equipment' that make good weapons;
even the target gun that you seem to despise would bring a new perspective to you if someone wrapped one around your ear.
Some people can kill you with almost anything, it just takes a little imagination.
Re: You CAN'T use it to distribute fake vouchers

Re: It's not news, it's the latest Twitter scandal
It's called Plausible Deniability - hence the similarity of the names...
re:What if a part in the 3D printer breaks?

Re: "Which part of "Foundation" did you not comprehend?"
Well, the second book dragged on a bit...
Re: Oi Murdoch!
At least two people like to pay more for less, I see.

Sod off now, you odious crinkly worm.
Re: Let the whining
I stand, pleasantly surprised!
Keep up the high standard of well reasoned commenting - the bridge dwellers slumber on, it seems...
Let the whining

Re: Z80 vs 6502?
Z80- decent 8-bit multipurpose micoprocessor

Flame on! Back to the '80s!
Re: Warming of rivers used for coolant by reactors
And how much for other generating plant- as opposed to windmills etc?

oddly, neither is Euphonium- the element all 'brass' instruments are made of...

"...but glue is lighter than any fastener that would stand the strain."
If Apple was as smart as they like people to think they are, then they would design clips to hold everything together that are part of the case and fittings, strong and light, and would be seen as elegant solutions.
Instead- bodge it with glue like a 4-year old's macaroni picture.
Re: For this aircraft to be built....
"...it will need a justification. A justification in terms of a threat."
