  1. 3-D Thoughts By Rhonda Hansome

    Thursday, May 30, 2013

    In spite of always having been intrigued by 3-D, I'm not a big fan of the experience. When I've viewed dark/muddy landscapes or body parts flying towards me on the big screen, I've usually remained unimpressed.

    A friend on face book, not one of hundreds I could not pick out in a police mug shot file, but an actual friend wrote, not to bother seeing Gatsby in 3D because it would take away from the flow and grand sweep of the movie.  I took heed. I'm glad I did.  I loved the beyond over the top excesses that took me to a world of make believe and romance.  Even though I actually found myself really looking at him in Django Unchained...  I did not NEED the 3D experience to finally stop resisting Leonardo DiCaprio.

    Anyway, my HP printer is not functioning properly and I don’t know why.  It’s plugged in.  It recognizes my computer – they are having a dialogue that clearly states the printer is out of paper.  That’s not true.  Not only is there paper in the printer, I put MORE paper in the printer several times; that is after turning it off and on multiple times to no avail.

    I have an audition and want to print out the “sides” or the “copy” I need to read in the audition.  What’s a girl to do?   Write it out by hand?   Wow, that was easily done!

    I’ve been thinking about printers a lot lately ever since I saw that 3-D printers will be able to digitize and replicate physical objects like guns!

    That’s right reproduce plastic guns.  What did Cody R. Wilson have to say when he unveiled the 3-D gun The Liberator:

    "Printed guns aren’t even proven technology and are extremely impractical devices from my experience. But there is a symbolic advantage to the individual in being at least capable of printing one.” *

    That's what I want in the 21st century a home printed gun with a SYMBOLIC ADVANTAGE!

     And now cue the Star Trek music… Yes 3-D printers will replicate food!!

    NASA has awarded Systems & Materials Research a grant to continue work on a “universal food synthesizer”**

    Mmmmm! Sign me up for burritos made by a robot and a supply of food cartridges with a 30 year shelf life. 

    It would be great if some global mega-corporation could make (and tax-shelter) an even bigger profit by using NON-labeled GMO as the basic elements of the food cartridges!!

    By The Way...

    1. I wish real sin was recognized as such. Feeding people poison, okay; loving your same gender partner, not okay. The backwardness is overwhelming at times.

      I heard there's a printer that can print pizza now, too. Yum. ~S
