This is the up and coming super power everyone is worried about

National, state, regional, and local politics. Who's doing what to whom, and what you can do about it. How-to-get-action messages are encouraged. "How the government fucked up my life" stories are encouraged. Sharing new methods for cheating on taxes is encouraged. Sample "letters to congresscritters" are encouraged. Apathy and "I can't do anything" posts are discouraged. Left, right, centrist, or any other form of political-economic systems are all up for discussion. Be prepared to defend yourself, or at least have a good line of bullshit ready. Extensive quoting of economists and philosophers is frowned upon. We want to hear what YOU have to say, not what some constipated, impotent, dead guy dreamt up while suffering from the DT's over a hundred years ago thought.

Right? It's great because it's not like it's just an exposed weld, it's like a really shitty exposed weld.

I can't even tell just how bad it is because I know absolutely zero about welding, but it's shoddy enough I can recognize it. Idk if I'd feel safe flying in that thing lmao

The future is here. Really tho, the rise of 3d printers as they get better and cheaper/more accessible is gonna be bonkers. Have fun trying to withhold shit from us when we can just print it

Ppl are already 3d printing replicas of the Tienanmen Square Massacre statue that the CCP removed from Hong Kong recently.

You can also 3d print a gun. They tried to keep that off the internet as well but you can still find it. Not like you will get many shots out of it, but im sure you could nylon print a AR lower and get a mag or so out of it before it cracks.

3D printing will be the wave of the future. Imagine a day when you can order shit off Amazon and have it instantly 3D print itself.

One industry that's getting fucked hard by 3d printing, and rightly so, its the war gaming industry, specifically Games Workshop. The creators of Warhammer and Warhammer 40k have long hated 3d printing and have even tried to sue people over printing models that even sort of look like theirs. Those greedy shits have fucked that IP straight to death so fuck them, print away.

What's gonna be funny is when markets are flooded so much that companies struggle to actually convince ppl to buy their stuff. I wonder what'll happen to the economy lol

Oh, for sure. That's, like, the first thing people thought to 3D print and it's great. I've seen the cost for some of the figurines and they can eat my ass. I'd have probably gotten into it if it wasn't like $65 for 1 unpainted ogre (idk if that's a thing but you get my point)

I don't think the markets will flood as much as they'll shift. You'll stop buying physical products and start buying the "rights" to print professionally designed items.

This is already happening on kickstarter. People are selling 3d models to resin print and the licenses to print them and sell them.

Which isn't necessarily a bad thing, because the people designing things still should be compensated, but the insane price is just too much, and all that overhead goes out the window when people start printing the things themselves.
