dittybopper: doglover: What happens to gun control when anyone can download and print a gun with their computer?

Uh, for the price of time and use of a 3D printer of the kind good enough to make a usable firearm, I could buy a glock, a suppressor, a and some hollow points.

Now.

Look at the difference between Internet access today, and 20 years ago. Were you even online? Probably not, the vast majority of people weren't. It was hard, required some special skills, and some expensive equipment that wasn't all that common, and it was slow and user-unfriendly. Now look at it.

The same is likely to happen with 3D printing. It's difficult and expensive today, the domain of geeks, just like the Internet was 20 years ago. But in 2032? It's possible that 3D printers will be as ubiquitous as inkjet printers are today.


Sure, 20 years ago we had AOL and tons of morans were online. Much like today. But you didn't need any special skills to run AslOwL, just time.

That list so full of fail I don't know where to begin.

So, it wasn't just me who read that list and wondered why some of them were listed. I'm not sure why the person who outed a General is more dangerous than the leader of Iran. Also, what makes a guy who puts the plans for firearms online dangerous, unless the author believes that all guns should be rounded up by the government and what the government doesn't want to be used by the police and military should be melted down? Also why is speaking up to protect military pilots a dangerous thing? Does the writer honestly have a love of one general and a hatred for military fighter pilots? Or does he just hate whistle blowers?

I'd have to put the leader of Iran and our federal congress and dangerous people. Though to be fair, while Iran is most likely to cause nuclear war, Congress scares me more because they have the ability to pass laws that can effect my pay check, my way of living, and since they can exempt themselves from those laws, they aren't going to give a damn about it.

giftedmadness: What a POS list.
 
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad should be listed, along with Putin and Kim Il Sung.  Also, Obama should be listed as well, because the USA is the most dangerous country in the world seeing as we preemptively attack more countries and drone strike more countries than anyone else. (not to mention false flag attack our own country for political reasons: 911)


For the last motherfarking time, 9/11
Was not a conspiracy.

So now that gas prices are falling is that still his fault or is it only his fault when they go up?

Still, Dooley and Yousef showed that random Islam haters can leave a huge impact.

No. What Yousef showed is that cavemen gonna caveman and blame whatever is convenient, even convincing top US officials of that narrative. Ideas and speech are not "dangerous". Idiots who are willing to kill people to satiate their bloodlust and use a story about an invisible father figure as an explanatory narrative ARE dangerous.

He also showed that numerous "respectable" people in the US government and academia, as well as many run-of-the-mill US citizens, can be turned into bed-wetting quislings who ignore the First Amendment - and merely by transparent falsehoods spread by the propaganda arm of Al-Qaeda.

it was a conspiracy, just not one cooked up by our government. Those 19 men didn't wake up the morning of September 11 and say, "Hey, let's steal some planes and smash them into some buildings, it will be awesome."

Xenomech: The list appears to be more of a list of the people most dangerous to the rich and powerful.


The names of I-bankers, hedge fund managers, private equity managers and WTO/World Bank flunkies were conspicuously. Knowing that the Wired editors are big Randroids gives you a figure-in-the-carpet look at how they view things.
 
2012-12-20 10:59:43 AM  
Without naming names and no particular order
1) Banksters
2) Intelligence Directors
3) CEO's
4) Lobbyists
5) Politicians
6) Media Conglomerates
7) Drug manufacturers
8) Weapons Manufacturers
9) Fundementalists
10) Energy Monopolies

Kevin72: Rush Limbaugh is the most dangerous man in America. Spewing lies, halftruths, slander. Belittling, dividing.


But nobody listens to him who already doesn't believe what he says.
He's not convincing anybody who was on the fence.
If anything, he drives people away.
He's just telling his faithful followers what they want to hear. Some of them would probably consider him too tame.

Err... uh... you might want to draw a timeline (in your case use a crayon) and then start plotting the the main historical events of the economic downturn. Then plot who was in office during those events. Notice that it was during the reign of George W. Bush when all that went down. An interesting point to note here is the Republicans blaming it on Obama, even though it happened before he cane into office. Then note on the timeline the things that Obama tried to do to fix it. Then note all the things the Republicans did to sabotage his efforts. Now you will note all the times that the Republicans claimed that Obama was not fixing the economy happen right after they sabotaged his attempts at fixing the economy.

Interesting, huh?

No go back to your GOP/NRA/KKK coloring books.

Yes, because anyone can make a gun with a 3D printer it questions the entire legality.

Unlike anyone making explosives at home.

Or cooking meth at home.

Or murdering someone at home.

Conspiracy theories are funny things.
 
Believe in some, and you're laughed at, attacked, ridiculed, and called "un-American".
 
DISbelieve in others, and you're laughed at, attacked, ridiculed, and called "un-American".
 
2012-12-20 12:36:03 PM  
And yet some people are attacked and ridiculed no matter what they believe.

Economies of scale will come.


No amount of economy of scale makes it easier to 3d print with metals.

The only interesting thing was the gun production using 3D printing. It sounds like he's trying to make a plastic receiver and not succeeding since it only lasts 6 shots. The direct metal laser sintering process sounds more promising and if they make powders of high tech alloys like Aermet 300 and Liquidmetal that have tensile strengths of 300,000 to 500,000 psi.

Some people never bother to consider who is arbitrating what constitutes a conspiracy.  Stanley Milgram has some provocative experiments on accepting/rejecting authority that speaks volumes to conspiracy acceptance/rejection.

Cursory knowledge of Milgram.

He lifted the veil, exposing certain ugly  aspects of psychology and human nature that have been used by the adept to control the unwitting for eons.

Interesting. Worthy of further study..
