Hershey's Turning 3D Printers Into Vending Machines

 

 

 

 

A company called 3D Systems has teamed up with Hershey's to create a 3D chocolate printer.

 

Just last month, there was news that there's a printer that makes pizza and turkey burgers. Google already serves up 3D printed pasta in their cafeterias. And NASA is looking into 3D printing food in space.

 

The new technology is being called the "easy bake oven of the digital age." The ChefJet and ChefJet Pro printers are able to print confections using sugar and water to crystallize frosting in real time, creating some "amazingly beautiful candy."

 

ChefJet and ChefJet Pro printers cost $5,000 and will be available the second half of this year. No word yet on when Hershey's 3D chocolate printer will be available or how much that will cost.

Guys:  The Key To A Happy Wife?  Spend More Time At Work

 

The key to a happy marriage is spending less, not more time with each other.

Researchers suggest the more overtime hubby does, the healthier she becomes, with wives benefiting most when husbands work more than 50 hours a week.

WOMEN WORKING?

 

The study found that men are doomed/screwed either way.

For when wives work long hours, house-husbands' health suffers – because the weight of domestic chores means they do not get enough time to exercise.

Ladies, say goodbye to your sweaty boobs ("swoobs") because there are now three companies that sell breast deodorant.

 

Toss a little "bust dust" on in the morning and you can stay dry and smelling fresh all day.

A Bra That Only Opens For True Love

 

A Japanese lingerie maker has built a new kind of bra that only becomes unhooked if the person trying to take it off of you is truly your love.

 

There's a heart rate monitor that's built into the bra and syncs with an app on your phone and monitors your heart rate over time.

 

Apparently there's a special equation for how your heart rate rises when you're in love.

 

Still, you may not want to go for a jog while wearing this one.

Ladies:  Want To Understand Your Man.. Read This.

 

1. When your man says, "I just want to be left alone," he- wait for it- means it! Take him for his word and leave him to his devices for a little bit.

 

2. When he says, "I don't care, you pick," he doesn't have some secret place in mind that he's vying for you to pick. If he has a preference, he'll tell you.

 

3. Getting him a gift is not supposed to be a death-march. Just rifle through his closet to get a hint of a gift idea because he probably wears every thing in the closet.

 

4. Men have a routine.  Whatever the routine may be, it makes him feel comfortable and content in his space. Try as much as possible to respect it.

 

5. Guys-time may be filled with grunts and burps and bad sex jokes, but it's a necessary evil. Whatever you may feel about his friends, as long as they're respectful towards you, don't make a fuss about him spending some time with them.

 

6. At the risk of hitting you with another cliché- he's just not that into you! If he's into you, he'll show interest in you.

 

7. Deciphering the infamous "I don't know," statement is actually as simple as it gets. It means just what it says: he doesn't know. No, seriously ladies, he doesn't know.

 

8. Men don't always remember every detail of every story we tell them; that doesn't mean he doesn't care about you.  As long as he's trying to listen to you, cut him a little break.

 

9. When he says, "I don't want a party," he means he doesn't want a party, dammit! If men say "I don't want a party," they really don't want to show up to a house full of balloons, streamers, and people yelling "Surprise!"

 

10. Men are as confused as we are! They don't have an abundance of knowledge about us locked up somewhere; they're trying to feel their way along just like women.

New Book Claims To Have Proof Adolf Hitler Lived To Be An Old Man

 

 

 

 

A new book, titled 'Hitler in Brazil - His Life and His Death', challenges the accepted view that the dictator shot himself in his Berlin bunker on April 30, 1945.

 

The author claims that he may have lived as Adolf Leipzig in a small town in Brazil, where he had a relationship with a black woman in order to escape detection.

 

The book also claims that Hitler actually grew old to the ripe old age of 95 before he passed away in 1984.

 

Leipzig was allegedly known among locals as the ‘Old German,' and the author now plans to use DNA tests of HItler's living relative of Hitler to prove her theory.

 

She has now been given permission to exhume Adolf Leipzig's remains from his alleged final resting place.
