I’ve been meaning to post this for a few weeks, but better late than never, as they say. Every once in a while the vine gets stuck to the skin of your grape and it gets peeled back a bit. Be not distraught! Buy one of these wonderful gadgets.
HEADLINE: CIA’s New Partnership To Advance Food 3D Printing
Ripped from the article:
“Our collaboration with the CIA provides the culinary community with a unique opportunity to explore and experience the open-ended possibilities of fusing 3D food printing with traditional culinary arts,” said Avi Reichental, president and CEO of 3DS. “Together we plan to advance culinary arts through education, exploration and experimentation by introducing 3D printing into the professional kitchen.”
Wow, those are… words. But it goes on…
“3DS has broken ground on its hybrid digital kitchen and event space, located in the heart of one of Los Angeles’ up-and-coming cuisine corridors, and plans to open it to the public this spring. The company plans to outfit its culinary innovation center with its latest food printers and invite pastry chefs, mixologists and molecular gastronomists to collaborate in creating new food experiences.”
Did you hear that? Mixologists AND molecular gastronomists. Sadam had those too.

This guy has got some serious stones. For over 10 years he lied to his employer, the EPA, telling them he was a covert CIA spy. Among his many exploits:
- Got a handicap plate because he claimed “he got malaria while in Vietnam”.
- Played James Bond-esk spy by getting the EPA to pay for first class flights, stays in 5 star hotels, limos, etc…
- Somehow received a salary of $206,000/year; more than ANYONE else at the EPA (even his bosses)
- Didn’t show up for work for months at a time, include one stretch of 18 months in a row. Apparently he was on assignment in Pakistan (he was really at his Cape Cod summer house or on his yacht).
It goes on and on… read the full story here:
It was a week dominated by robot news. First, it was reported that robots are calling people and engaging you in witty banter while trying to get you to sign up for scam-tastic “health insurance”. They do everything but specifically say they are not robots… sort of. Listen to the audio; it’s kind of creepy.
Then Google buys the company that will eventually build Skynet.
Now it appears you can blame your slow internet on robots. It looks like 60% of all internet traffic is made up by robots. I’m not surprised by this, actually, I get so much spam I used to have a whole feature based on this called SPam of thE Week. Check it out here.
What a bunch of jerks… I guess they want to piss us off before they unleash the T1000’s.
I guess the DOD can’t process your Freedom of Information Act requests because their only fax machine is broken. No word on if you could just send your mom an e-mail with the request since they read all your e-mail anyway.
In other news, I’m lazy and need a nap.
