Living in the future can be pretty cool sometimes!

I found a video showing how direct metal laser sintering (3d metal printing) is done. The narration is a little too high-energy-morning-DJ for my taste, but the information is interesting.

Not pets or people? Sure. I've never seen a cowboy brand a backpack.

Latest moral panic landing in 3... 2...

I don't think I want any of my drunk friend to own this.

(Note: not pets or people)

You're condoning branding aliens and wild animals?

I pity the fool earthling that tries that.

I'm starting to wonder about "nerd" culture these days. At what point does fellating the product lines of movie studios become tediously mainstream? Obviously this particular item doesn't count since it's not an official item of Time Warner merchandise, but I find myself eye-rolling more and more often at the endless repetition of a few trademark properties as if they are anything other than profit centers.

Tonight on CNN, our exclusive coverage of "The Branding Game".
Witness helpless people randomly branded with logos, by roving gangs of black youth.
It is an initiation in to the "hacker" culture.
"Hackers" seek to overthrow the natural order of the world, and steal all of your retirement money to buy pumpkin spice lattes.

You laugh now... but you know this is coming....

Why not people?

Almost all "product lines" of movie studios derive from other media, Batman included. Except for Star Wars, I can't actually think of any other popular nerd icons that didn't derive from comics, toys, or novels.

Because scarification is an imprecise art that might result in something you want, something you don't want or a severe infection. Tattoos are a bit more reliable. There's a reason google images has a whole section subtitled "gone wrong" and "infection" when you search for 'scarification'.
