silly, hard to believe, likely requiring an very expensive printer.. you need the right resources which cost a lot.. and girls often love shopping and buying this stuff out together... so. I think its very unlikely to become anything..

Sounds great... 3D printers are replacing human labors. They are making houses with the help of 3D printers.

To call this "wild speculation" would be an understatement.

 

You can make cautious predictions once a trend emerges, or if you have considered all the variables. Saying "this machine will destroy the industry" -- before it can produce a product that anyone is interested in -- is optimistic to say the least.

 

I remember a woman pestering me about 15 years ago to join an internet-shopping-related pyramid scheme. She assured me that within 5 years, 90% of people would do their food shopping online instead of at the supermarket. I assured her they would not. People go to supermarkets because A) it's a social experience, B) we like to see and touch the items we're buying and C) we like being surrounded by products and being able to make impulsive decisions.

 

The article above is another example of stupidly simplistic reasoning that does not take into account any of the myriad social reasons that people do things. We don't do things purely based on economic motivation.

 

Women don't buy beauty products based solely on thrift or how convenient it is to get them (I think the opposite is true in many cases).

 

Women care about product labels.

 

Buying and talking about makeup forms a social bond that is important to women.

 

Why women buy beauty products (instead of manufacturing them in their basement) is a much more complex issue than this article can grasp.

We cannot prevent girls from shopping together, nor should we. It's a social thing, talk talk talk, buy an ice cream, bond. 3D printers will change many things, but I don't think they will change the fact that girls shop for clothes, makeup, shoes and iPhones. They might end up in many shops for 'choose your custom color' sales.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
