Husband and wife are traveling by car from Los Angeles
to "the centre of the universe", Toronto.After almost twenty-four hours on the road they are too tired to continue, and decide to stop for a rest. They stop at a hotel near and slept for four hours and then get back on the road.When they check out four hours later, the desk clerk hands them a bill for $350.00. The man explodes and demands to know why the charge is so high. He tells the clerk although it's a nice hotel, the rooms certainly aren't worth $350.00! When the clerk tells him $350.00 is the standard rate, the man insists on speaking to the Manager. The Manager appears, listens to the man, and Then explains that the hotel has an Olympic-sized pool and a huge conference center that were available for the husband and wife to use. 'But we didn't use them,' the man complains.'Well, they are here, and you could have,' explains the manager. He goes on to explain they could have taken in one of the shows for which the hotel is famous. 'The best entertainers from New York , Hollywood and Las Vegas perform here,' the manager says.
'But we didn't go to any of those shows,' complains the man again.
'Well, we have them, and you could have,' the manager replies.
No matter what amenity the manager mentions, the man replies, 'But we did not use it!' The manager is unmoved, and eventually the man gives up and agrees to pay. He writes a check and gives it to the manager. The manager is surprised when he looks at the check. 'But sir,' he says, this check is only made out for $50.00.'
'That's correct,' says the man. 'I charged you $300.00 for sleeping with my wife.'
'But I didn't!' exclaims the Manager. 'Well, too bad,' the man replies. 'She was here and you could have.'

Hobo Soup

Oh, the life of a hobo! Hopping trains, stealing pies and making delicious soup. This can of Hobo Soup has a label so beautiful that it will make you want to keep the can as a collectible rather than eat the contents. If you do eat it, you'll get 15 ounces of hardy bean soup with 100% of your daily allowance of sodium. As the label says, "A jungle recipe fit for a king!" This product contains milk and soy. Despite the name, it does NOT contain any actual hobo.

How to prepare Chimarrão

•Erva Mate,(South American holly or yerba mate, Aquifoliaceae) a special kind of green tea from South America (the greener the better)
•A nice cuia (a cup made from the calabash gourd)
•A metal straw with a filter (in Portuguese, bomba)
•A plastic disc for tamping the mate (you can use a CD covered in paper or your hand)
•A thermos flask with hot water
•A cup of warm water

Legend of mate
A nomadic Indian tribe stood on the slopes of the mountains where the river Tabay. When he resumed his way, a member of the tribe, an Indian old and tired for years, became refugees in the jungle in the company of his daughter Yari, who was very beautiful. One day, arrived at the hideout of an old man who had a strange skin color and dressed in weird clothes, who were generously.

The old man offered the visitor a roast acuta, a rodent in the region, and a plate of tambu, which is prepared from a larva of white flesh and abundant that the Guarani create trunks pindó .

Legend has it that the visitor was sent from God of Good, who wanted to reward such generosity by giving them something they could always offer to its visitors and that could shorten the hours of solitude on the banks of streams where they were resting. For them, has spawned a new plant in the jungle, which he called Yari, goddess who protected it, and entrusted their care to his father, Caa Yara, teaching him to dry her arms fire and prepare a dish that could offer to all who visit. Since then, the new plant grows, giving the leaves and branches to prepare the mate.

Neanderthals: Not Extinct, Just Called “Humans” Now

Before “Neanderthal” was a pejorative, it was a species of pre-historic weird things that roamed Europe and Asia and died off sometime after the Ice Age ended—or so we thought. However, a new study shows that some of this Neanderthal D.N.A. has been preserved within human D.N.A. “In a significant advance, the researchers mapped most of the Neanderthal genome—the first time that the heredity of such an ancient human species has been reliably reconstructed. The researchers, able for the first time to compare the relatively complete genetic coding of modern and prehistoric human species, found the Neanderthal legacy accounts for up to 4% of the human genome among people in much of the world today,” reports The Wall Street Journal.

Print 3D Engineering Models on Your Desktop – HP Designjet 3D Printer

We're bouncing back and forth between high tech and low tech, from 5 axis milling machines to hands on clay mockups for body kits, today it's back to high tech with this brand new 3D printer for the desktop from HP, the HP Designjet 3D Printer. It's now on sale in Europe starting around $17,500, still a bit high for the home do it yourself designer, but pretty amazing, nevertheless.

Engineers can model their parts in 3D software and instead of using some very expensive milling machines and needing a highly skilled machinist to see what the part looks like in real life, they just hit the print button.
The HP printer uses ABS plastic to form the parts. The printer weighs 130 pounds and is 30 by 26 by 26 inches. It will literally fit on a sturdy desktop. One version is capable of printing in multiple colors so you can color each piece differently to show how they fit together.

Obviously, these parts cannot be used in the actual product, they're models only, but think about how far we've come in the last few years. Not long ago, this was the stuff of science fiction, then only something available to the biggest companies, now it's something small design firms can put to work. Is a home version in the future? Bet on it
