And then he beat him to death with it. Becoming the very first 3-D printed murder weapon. Beat him with his own plastic hand.

Ah America, where instead of making sure the kid just gets a prosthetic, we have people scrambling to figure out how to make their own for their kids.

QA Is just a bot. No capacity to think, learn, or reason. It's just programmed to spew out gibberish at the mention of new tech. Much like the bot that frequented the evolution threads.

Nah. He's just a guy who is convinced of his own superior intellect. He thinks he's on a mission to save us from ourselves because he's sincerely convinced that if he doesn't that we'll be deluded into believing that 3D printing will lead us directly to Star Trek replicators.

This is an issue of vital importance because of the chittering voices in his head.

Or you know, instead of spending tens of thousands of dolllars repeatedly as his son grows the father decided to get a better solution for a fraction of the cost.

I have confusion. This man rendered great aid to his child, at his own expense. Is that not the opposite of what "father of the year" is for?

Have I accidentally stepped through a mirror into the twisted and insane Land of Things that Actually Make Sense?
