Your next house could be 3D-printed, would take just three weeks to build.

No it won't. Not if it looks like that. That's awful.

Come on, everyone wants to live in a home that looks like spiders shat it out! It could fit in well in that town in Brazil!

Could a 3D printer print me up a clone of Kate Upton? Now that would be useful! =p
Sure, but she won't be real enough. I don't mind a real copy too.

3D printers are the new everything right now, where we've heard about moon bases being 3D-printed, buildings being 3D-printed and even stem cells - what next? Houses. Yes, houses.

Whoa! First Buildings and now, houses. Coming on leaps and bounds eh?
Let's get Blue one so he can build BlueTowers!

Sarcasm?
Excel 97 doesn't even have PivotCharts, which is so obscenely basic.

We had Excel 03 at work until recently. What trash. 2010 is mindbogglingly more powerful. And Office 365 will be lightyears better, now that it legitimately allows group work.
Nope, not sarcasm. I don't even know what a PivotChart is, so I'm pretty sure I don't need one. I do also have Office 2003 installed at work (done by Corporate IT automatically) which I need and use at work for some .xlsx files occasionally. But for 90% of any work done in Office, I am really using Office 97.

Edit: A quick look around tells me I've seen Pivot Tables and Charts before, just didn't know the terminology. Certainly useful, but not something I've ever had to worry about.

Sticking with Open Office for the win. Why would I buy a new copy of office every 3 years when I replace my PC?

Tying software to a specific PC means no sale here.

Let me guess, because you would have to be brain dead to pay a subscription to use Office 2013 when the best Office ever made was '97? Still use it at work and at home.
I still use 2000. Also OpenOffice and LibreOffice. However, they can't open passworded docx files.

Oh it just needs a little love, then that spider house would be fit for living. Add some paint, draperies, plants, a tasty Hobbit trying to escape after being tricked to go inside. Nice and cozy.

NO NO NO NO. Anything that looks like it was made by a million spiders has to be burnt to the ground... twice.

GPS jamming caused by moonlighting truck drivers, research suggests

I can see the desire to not be tracked, but disrupting critical infrastructure at the same time? There's got to be a better way.
