I wonder if it adds a 7 percent solution?

120 degree alignment with the ground? What does that even mean? The pictures weren't very helpful and the whole thing didn't really even seem like the steampunk style, either.

So basically it's a cold drip coffee makers with $6,750 worth of ornamentation?

Meh.

Why do nerds allow steampunk to have any credibility? It's akin to Jesus riding a dinosaur in it's likelihood of feasibility and implementation.

fat women in corsets...basically just recycling their renfaire "garb" by adding goggles, some pointless watch cogs , a shiatty Hot Topic "top hat" and a spray painted nerf gun.

and a "steampunk" coffee machine is retarded.  Coffee has always been made with boiling water...so the fark what?

Sherlock Holmes was British, remember?  Most likely, he would drink tea, not coffee.
(Presumably, he would drink his tea at the usual time, 4:00 PM.)

Sherlock Holmes doesn't need you dictating his tea time... because at 4pm he would be half way through a drug induced nap thank you very much.

Yep. Subs was trying really hard to relate steampunk to something in pop culture. B+ for effort, still a headline fail.

Yep. dittybopper pointed out that this machine's style is actually Gothic, not Steampunk, and many churches are built in the Gothic style.

Because it's fun.

And because it's a fantasy genre which is not 'hard boiled scifi' or 'tolkiens bastard cock'.

But mostly because it's fun.

What a novel concept.

I wish steampunk dorks wouldn't try to appropriate Holmes.  It's bad enough that they fetishize an empire that brutalized countless millions.

I'm sorry but the thought of Benedict Cumberbatch, dressed as Sherlock, pwning some poor starbucks customer so badly he/she walked out crying is hilarious.

FUN FACT: In the original books in which Holmes was based he regularly used a little 'nose candy' but Conan Doyle phased it out after it was outlawed in the early 20th century by the U.S.

If you download his books from Project Gutenberg there is still reference to his occasional coke habit.

2014-08-07 03:13:54 PM  
Not bad: $500-1000 for the cost of building it, and 6000+ in profit.

He also shot up with heroin. One of the sub-plots to one of the stories was Watson noticing the track marks and voicing his disapproval.
