Brilliant machined stainless parts depicted are possible with modern computer controlled work centers employing multitudes of special tools that are automatically, methodically selected according to program.
These examples are most likely just an exhibit pieces made to impress passersby visitors attending the 2016 SME Montreal Advanced Manufacturing Show at Place Bonaventure then again, both may actually be something machined for industry.
Things made of stainless steel are always shiny and interesting to look at and these particular pieces are certainly unique with all those holes, threads, milled corners and niches, and multiple raised and recessed surfaces reflecting nearby objects and overhead lighting.

Swiss Air jet ascend amidst UFOs over Lac Saint Louis off Pte Claire in Montreal’s West Island shows space aliens may routinely visit Earth to assess our technological progress.
Although this photo is photo edited to create a sci-fi scenario something like this can happen one day after our scientists succeed making contact with aliens in our vast unexplored universe.
If there really are aliens out there that can travel the extremely long distances to reach our planet then we can safely assume they are very advanced however, they may not be nice to primitives like us.

Rushing fresh mountain water sparkle caused by bright autumn day’s sunlight reflection as it travels downhill near country cottage in Eastern Townships.
The dark blue water quickly traveling downhill from its source smashes into large smooth boulders in its way creating white water spray that glistens when it picks up the sun’s bright rays.
Heavy autumn rains this October contributed in delivering the large volume of ground water rushing down hillside towards its final destination, Lake Memphremagog.
The heavy volume of water also made itself noticed by its ever-increasing sound level the closer you got to this creek when compared what it was earlier during this year’s rather dry summer months.

An irrelevant shadow appears on sidewalk around noon, the hottest brightest part of summer day captured by this digital image.
There really was no real reason to take this picture except for the fun of it perhaps, just to see how it would turn out .
After some photo editing I have created an interesting irrelevant image perhaps worthwhile for this post.

Only finite amount of wonderful Cuban originated Bacardi Gold Rum remains, some in shot glass and rest in colorful large size decal decorated glass bottle sporting its famous fruit bat logo.
According to the label on this bottle Senior Facundo Bacardi established his business back in 1862 about the time the American Civil War was raging.
Facundo and his brother José bought a distillery that year housing a copper and cast iron still and set it up in Santiago de Cuba.
Unknown then to the two brothers the building was a home to some fruit bats living in its rafters, these little guys became the inspiration for the future Bacardi bat logo making the rest history.

Trade shows, like depicted, educate interested visitors about new advances in technology and how it will impact on output in manufacturing sector reducing costs and improving production rates to boost more profits for company owners.
This image depicts technical workers being shown a new numerical controlled work center machine that uses multiple tools and is capable to produce very complex and precise work pieces in least time compared to the past when the work was done in whole machine shops by multitudes of skilled machinists using many machines.
As the picture shows the machining is done enclosed inside a machining compartment that can be viewed through coolant splashed plexiglass.
The manufacturing is done quickly and efficiently while continually doused in special coolant to protect the tools and work-piece from heat buildup due to the rapid machining rate.
The SME (Society of Manufacturing Engineers) puts on trade shows every year such as this in many big cities both in USA and Canada, this one was the 2016 Montreal Manufacturing Technology Show.

Serious or fatal road accident is possible if any or all the several critical control parts depicted in picture should fail while you are driving this modern car at normal speeds.
Let us begin at left side of picture with the CV Joint, that brass-color steel rod with what looks like a bunch of black disks attached to it by a chrome color strap clamp.
Should one of these fail, one of the car wheels would seize and or come off resulting in loss of control and lots of sparks from front end of car and perhaps, serious or fatal accident.
Next, we have the coil and shock absorber assembly which provides stability and keeps the car tire from rubbing on the fender moreover, if that screw and nut connecting this assembly to the car frame comes off then the coil-shock unit would probably break off, cause lots of sparks, and maybe puncture the front tire resulting in a crash.
Finally, on the right of the coil and shock absorber assembly and partly obscured by it, bolted to car engine block, is the power steering motor unit, which if it failed would leave the car driver helpless because of loss of steering resulting in perhaps a fatal accident.
Also shown in this picture are hydraulic oil lines, those silvery thin tubes, that if severed could cause loss of control because their oil is needed for example, in power steering .

Dandelions, prickle weeds like depicted Canada Thistle, Creeping Charlie,etc., go wild during wet Summer like Quebec and Canada’s east coast is experiencing this year while West Coast forests burn due lack of rain.
Alleged “climate change” is blamed for what is happening and there is an element of truth in it all however, our limited recorded history throws some doubt on it all because even before the term was coined our planet has had good and bad weather along with extreme fluctuations in temperature.
Our reliance on technology and in particular computer generated weather and temperature charts based on data gathered by humans and software programs also created by humans to accurately predict our planet’s future is a recipe for disaster.
We are error prone therefore the basis for our decisions extracted from computers is also not reliable enough to make possibly very costly conclusions moreover, there is no shortage of well placed and connected international criminals waiting to profit from it all.
This doesn’t mean that no more real scientific work needs be done to ensure credible data however, all ideology tainted science must be denied free reign as it seems to have presently.
Our governments need to decide honestly and properly how our taxes are spent regarding any influence humans can muster against the forces of nature for the benefit of humankind.

Grainy B/W example photo of some interesting old architectural detail in downtown Montreal is a bit fuzzy looking however, it does provides a simple sample that describes it all.
Many early black and white photos were of similar quality because the equipment used to capture and process the images was primitive compared to our 21st century digital stuff, which is awesome.
