Friday fragments

Welcome to Friday fragments, my weekly recap of topics too big to forget but too small to be their own post.

It is truly amazing what technology can do now! My friend Terry sent me this video about 3D printing of objects. You gotta watch it. Then there's this video about Honda's new lightweight, portable transportation device. Could it be the wheelchair of the future? Absolutely amazing!

My friend Jared sent me this.
And all this time I thought the existence of gay Mexican Muslim bears was just a myth! Turns out they're the #1 threat to America!!

One of the Bobs sent me this video from the "What Would You Do?" tv show. I must admit that I was surprised at the willingness of people in the red state of TX to speak up over unfair treatment of gays and lesbians. More Texans than New Yorkers!

Jared sent me this too.
Really??? Do we really need a sign to forbid peeing on small animals???

Some of Spouse's family are coming tomorrow for a visit. His sister, her husband, their college sophomore daughter, their high school sophomore son, their 8th grader son, and Spouse's mom should arrive sometime tomorrow. They're staying for a week. That's right - there will be a total of 8 people staying in our house for a week! Funds are too tight for them to rent a house in their favorite resort area so they're spending a week's vacation at our beach house. It shouldn't be that bad, actually. They came last year when I worked at home and everything was fine. Like last year, Spouse is taking off work the entire week they're here so he can go to the beach and hang out with them while I'm working. This year I won't be home during the day so I won't even see them until 5pm when I get home. I get along with them great - don't misunderstand - its just that they will be in a 'vacation' mindset and I won't, so it can be a little tricky.

Wishing everyone a great weekend!
