Specialty items so unique they’re not worth stealing

For a limited enough supply there is no resale value for stolen goods.

The theft of a fine piece of art would come to the attention of art dealers worldwide almost immediately, making reselling this limited good quite difficult. At least at a premium…

What other goods have the same property?

Feel Good Fascism

Sometimes Fascism Feels Good…

There’s an internet meme going around that in Finland, you cannot buy a dog until all the shelters are empty.

It’s not true, but people wish it was, because we’ve all seen the “In the Arms of the Angel” Sarah McLachlan commercial, and if you didn’t feel bad for not picking up the next stray you see on a street corner, you should just step off that corner into traffic, you monster.

3D Designing a Butterfly in OpenSCAD

Mostly 3D.

I’m just building more complex keyboards. This one will flap from side to side like a butterfly! A BUTTERFLY.

I guess.

I had an idea for a grid-layout keyboard with an adjustable and removable hinge like the IBM M15, so you can adjust the angle and placement of both sides of keys so you’re not tweaking your wrists, slowly degrading their ability to exist painlessly.

As with most best laid plans, the devil in the details derailed my designdobjectives; but brought me to a more interesting and concise design…

America Doesn’t Exist

Do you like Hockey?

No wait, Baseball. Do you like Baseball?

I find it intensely boring (but that’s not important right now), because Baseball has an interesting property I’d like to explain.

You can play Baseball just like you can play a flute, but someone can steal a flute and they cannot steal Baseball.
