Judge John Hodgman Episode 309: Justice Extruded is Justice Denied

| 0 comments

Micah brings the case against his girlfriend Jenny. Micah would like to buy a 3D printer for their home. Jenny thinks their apartment is too small. She thinks he should wait until they move into a bigger place.

EVIDENCE

SUBMITTED BY MICAH:

Click here to check out the printer that Micah would like. This is the space where he proposes the printer would live:

He says, "“As can be seen, the printer could comfortably fit beneath my computer desk--I would move the shelf that is currently down there to the place immediately to the right of the desk. The box that is currently in that spot would be moved to a more storage-y place since it's just holding random cords, PC parts, and other knickknacks that don't really need to be immediately accessible.”

SUBMITTED BY JENNY:

“I have made a short video of what our apartment looks like with some cameos from our dog Emmett.”

Click here to check out the video!

“I am also including a website with a list of places where you can 3D print. One of our friends has a membership at the Artisan's Asylum and has offered to let Micah used his space there so I've included their wiki on the machines they have.”
