Anjan Contractor’s 3D food printer might evoke visions of the “replicator” popularized in Star Trek, from which Captain Picard was constantly interrupting himself to order tea. And indeed Contractor’s company, Systems & Materials Research Corporation, just got a six month, $125,000 grant from NASA to create a prototype of his universal food synthesizer.

We will eat gerbil pellets because it will be cool.

Look at this beautiful cool comic my friend Jake is making. I can’t wait to fins out more about this character. Also, I love her clothes.
Signal boost. I’ll be following this.
This gorgeous, one-of-a-kind ragdoll pony is named Liftoff. Her body is made from a cotton print of shuttle missions and the International Space Station. Her mane is a black cotton print with shimmery stars and swirls. Her cutie mark is a visual representation of LH2, the liquid fuel used for shuttle missions. There’s nopony like her anywhere in the world… and she can be yours!
Liftoff is up for auction! Here’s how it works: to bid on her, comment here OR send me a private message on Twitter and include your bid. The auction will end at 3pm Pacific Time, Thursday, May 23.

Give your blog a theme and follow it, change your style and get a new wardrobe at Salvation Army for under $50, do a new mitzvah, start climbing trees, make contact with someone you’ve always regretted falling out of contact with, learn about rocks, learn about space, decide who matters in your life and start making an effort to show them you love them. This is freedom to change your life versus the responsibility to change your life for the better. Reblogging something like this and not choosing to change your life at least a little is hypocritical and irresponsible.
I’m going to start drawing today. I’ve not drawn seriously in over a year, and not finished a drawing project in even longer. I’ve not been happy that I’ve let this skill I have drop, but I’ve not done anything to change that until today.
What are you doing today?
