Default Villages Problems Addressed

Advances in the technology of 3D Printing will enable The Villages to install chair producing machines at the squares. VCDD spokesperson Ty Redfeet has reported a pilot project at Spanish Springs with the installation of two of the solar powered , hi-tech machines. Villagers with valid resident IDs and paid up amenities can receive free tokens for use in the machines at the drink huts and additional tokens can be purchased at a discount. Stonecresters will need to pay full price. A proposed amnesty program will allow Stonecresters to trade in Villages gate cards for tokens. This should help reduce congestion on the golf cart bridge and at some of the historic side facilities. The machines will power up 45 minutes prior to performance time (90 minutes before on Market night and Rocky & the Rollers nights). The machines will have historic plaques attached stating that Thomas Edison built the original prototype while wintering in Spanish Springs in 1892.
In addition the printers will have a recycling component taking a variety of materials. Old chairs, plastic ware, rope, string, seat pillows and broken gate arms will all be accepted. Pet waste in plastic Publix or Winn Dixie bags will also work. Depending on the amount of pet waste recycled the chairs may have a minor odor on damp or rainy evenings.
For more info please see the 4/1/2015 Villages Sun.

You may put in advanced reservations for custom but-measured contoured chair. Just put your dimensions below.

Default It's about time.

Another great solution from "America's Techiest Hometown".

The 3D machine will be able to recognize the presence of rope and will quickly construct a box=shaped cell that will come down over the head of anyone carrying rope. If the trapped person manages to get out of the trap and tries to sit on it, it will immediately collapse

Not only is that funny, but it's incredibly creative and well thought out. Kudos my friend.

I'm sure someone will bring along a thumb drive, insert it into this printer, and click SAVE. I think I saw one guy tying a rope around the printer.
