In interest of making my life more interesting I asked my adviser on what to do to get into rapid prototyping and fabrication... He dropped me into a paid internship with the army. I am still shocked.

Maybe they want self-replicating tanks or whatever. Hey Bob, get me 16 tons of iron for a new tank!

scary things are most tanks aren't built with iron, they are built with ceramics, so one big fuck off pottery wheel is needed.

Wow, that's kinda cool, I had trouble deciding whether the awesome tech of a missile manufacturing company would out weigh the badness of making mass murder devices... As long as you can reconcile yourself to the fact you are making arms enjoy the cool tech! :D That said, pottery ain't exactly high tech! ;-) Two weeks til my apprenticeships starts now - WOOOP!

@Thelevellers: building and designing drones. Right now nothing too big. RC plane sized.

It's all fun and games until a sloppy developer messes it: Global KillAllHumans = True;
