3D printing

My dept. at work just got our own 3d printer! For the rest of the week, we can print most anything (within reason) for free, including personal/non-work related items.

Here is a set of Pac-Man cookie cutters I got made today.

What other "fun" things should I get printed?

Have you ever had anything 3d printed before? What was it?

dk/dc: what is your favorite type of cookie? would it still taste as good if it were pac-man and/or ghost shaped?

Are you unemployed?

Excluding students and stay at home moms/dad, what do you do with your time? Do you enjoy being unemployed? How do you support yourself?

I love my job but I am in my 20's and think constantly about the day I get to retire. I hate being a slave to the man and would love to have so much free time every single day to fill however I please!

I think I threw away fifty-five bucks

Man, used to be shopping at the warehouse clubs meant not having enough room in my car for all the really cheap stuff I bought, and I stopped shopping when I ran out of room, not out of money. Nowadays, not so much.

I'd let my membership lapse for a couple of years. Now I'm back (Costco this time around, it had been Sam's Club before that, Costco before that, and if you go back far enough it was Price Club in Connecticut) and I'm all "Why did I spend money on a membership?"

I'm seeing quality goods at Aldi for the same price-per-unit as Costco and Sams, and I don't have to buy a 9 month supply of whatever. I'm seeing matching meat prices at GFS Marketplace (whoops! they're renaming back to Gordon Food Service). I don't need a cocktail-party's worth of hummus and crab-salad, or pre-made lobster bisque.

Do you shop at a warehouse club? What do you find there that's worth going in for?
