Is anyone outside of John McCain being that hawkish over Syria? I mean yeah okay Obama's suggesting a three-day missile barrage now, but I mean this is after two years and that's more of a symbolic action than anything. And I don't think that's someone anyone actually WANTS to do, they're just kind of stuck with it now.

3D printing drugs?

I'm loving the developments being made with 3D printers now; whatever risks come with them, both anti-self defense laws and anti-drug laws are going to end up taking a huge hit when the price on 3D printers goes down.  (Never mind all the other cool stuff that is being done with them, like plans for a potential moon base.)  Putting aside for a moment the morons who are going to want a printer so they can pretend to be Walter White, it may greatly assist in lowering production costs for pharmaceuticals.

when the price on 3D printers goes down.

Already there kinda. You can get a descent printer for 10,000$
Considering the drug trade and weapon trade... you'd easily make that back.

Have you seen the thing about how John McCain was caught playing online poker on his iPhone while Congress was discussing whether to go to war with Syria?  That sounds like something that should be an Onion headline, but it was actually true...

Well to be fair, his mind was pretty fucking clearly already made up on the matter and nothing he would have heard would have changed his opinion.

All I'm sayin' is I'm not surprised....

EDIT: YOU BASTARDS, WHAT HAVE YOU DONE WITH THEM?!

Are there any foreseeable outcome in Syria that doesn't end in genocide?

Recettear (ENG only) selling more than some AA games:

Glad to hear it. I loved the game and have a soft spot for Carpe Fulgur.

The French MMO company Ankama is opening an office here in Montreal.

I don't care much about any of their MMO, but I really loved the Wakfu TV serie.

Update: oh they're going to make 3x 45 minutes specials
