    Try not to take anything I say at heart, for while my words are deigned to get a rise out of you, the influence of them is not meant to be harsh and permanent --it is easier to read a person for who they are when they are caught off-guard.

    Feel free to contact me for any discussion you may want; I am an open book save but my real name.

  1. Some slang options used this generation definitely lack for the creativity. Bae? Oh, you just misspelled "babe." Fam? You forgot a couple letters there. It's "family." I understand using it in the past with texting to save having to tap letters, but modern cellphones have full keyboards and autocorrect meaning there is no excuse not to spend the fraction of a second to finish typing out the word anymore. Additionally, saying the shorthand in-person just makes you sound like a moderately intelligent gerbil. The same as saying "lol" as a word in-person. Some words seeing more use suc
  2. Normally those against transhumanism argue that replacing body parts results in being less human, or being less "you". More often than not this has to do with religious or spiritual beliefs. Given time we will finish mapping the human DNA and this will be possible. At this point in time scientists are actually capable of removing some birth defects in test animals, and able to insert deactivated code into the human DNA (meaning we can store data in our DNA). Back in 2012 Harvard cracked the ability to create artificial DNA and store up to 700 terabytes of data in a single gram of DNA.
  3. @@ARagY, Transhumanism is the belief or theory that the human race can evolve beyond its current physical and mental limitations, especially by means of science and technology. Basically, we are as far as evolution will take us. It is up to humanity to further our evolution and development with science and technology -- biotics to replace or improve body parts, gene therapy to eradicate diseases like cancer, vitamins and supplements to extend the lifespan. Just a few examples. Taken to the extreme, transhumanism becomes transcendentalism -- the idea that non-biological functions (scien
  4. I suppose I should have gave a better example for number 4, or a few examples. Let's say we have a sports player. Let's go with soccer. The player opts to replace his organic legs with artificial ones that are superior -- faster, stronger, more reactive. Does this player now hold an unfair advantage over the other players? Or, if someone can get an artificial implant in their brain to store memories, help multitask, and access vast stores of knowledge. Does this put them at an unfair advantage against someone without them? Say you are applying for a job involving stocks. Somethin

    General Unrelatable Problems

    @@Astro Mambo, It is not strange to enjoy being scared. When you are scared your body releases a cocktail of chemicals into your bloodstream and brain as you instinctively prepare to combat or escape what scared you. This is the "flight or fight" response. However, as soon as the initial adrenaline wears off as your brain catches up and realizes you aren't in danger, the chemical cocktail is broken down and converted into endorphins, chemicals that your brain uses to make you feel happy. You aren't strange for liking being scared, you're an adrenaline junkie. You're just the same as p
  6. I first want to state there is currently no right or wrong answer to any of the questions I pose further in this post, as society, religion, and personal beliefs will bias your thoughts one way or another; I'm just curious the honest opinions of users of the forums. Question 1: Should someone be allowed to get a prosthesis if they lost a body part due to war (such as a leg or arm that was injured and unable to be saved), disaster, an accident, or other trauma? Question 2: If a prosthesis was equal to the replaced body part, should a person be able to willingly choose to remove a

    Food Do you eat meat?

    Yes, I eat meat. Since I was nine years old I learned how to dress down a deer for the meat to cure (skinning a corpse is stupid easy once you learn how to do it, by the way). Nothing beats the gamey smell of the deer's carcass hanging in the cold room as the meat cures, knowing that you went through the efforts of gathering it. Knowing that you and yours will have food on their plate come winter. That is to say venison isn't the only meat I have ate. Chicken, pork, buffalo, caribou, beef, various fish, clams, mussels, octopus, squid, and much much more. However, I am not strictly a carn
  9. If you're a fan of instant noodles, this infographic will help you get the most bang for your buck. Saved my palate during two years when my food budget was 40 dollars a month.
  10. 94 minutes. This allows Hasbro to air the movie on TV down the road in a two hour block and get the most advertising time possible squeezed in at the maximum tolerated in the US at 13 minutes per hour.
  11. Fluttermom is Velma from Scooby Doo, Flutterdad is Mr. Harvey from Lovely Bones, Flutterbro is a new-age hippie mooch. And all three of them have very little no family resemblance to Fluttershy in any way except personality. Honestly? I can't wait for the beta moocher of a brother to meet the god of chaos, since Discord and Fluttershy are a item. Also, Fluttershy having to relearn to be assertive in any episode featuring her is getting to be an old schtick.
  12. Preface: For those wondering, no this is not meant to be a religious outburst, even though it might read as such since faith is a strong theme in Warhammer 40,000. In the universe of 40k there is something called the Imperial Creed. A book of the words of the Emperor of Mankind meant to inspire soldiers and help them keep faith against the onslaught of daemons, alien hordes, and monstrous horrors of the beyond. Many fans have extrapolated the canonical quotes from the Imperial Creed and turned it into a few posts around the Internet designed to inspire readers to strive for more. What I h
  13. All joking aside, I have no problems with those of faith as long as they respect my choices and try to now browbeat me with their beliefs.

    Gaming Best game intros?

    Wild Arms. No contest. The opening sequence does its job perfectly, introducing you to the wild west and fantasy theme of the JRPG in just the first few seconds. From there, the song and visuals cradle you, preparing you for the wonders ahead. Then you start playing the game. You get a feel for the characters, learn of their goals, their hopes, their dreams. Then, just as they unite and you settle in for a fun ride, the game hits you with a curve ball by killing off a secondary character, starting a war, and thrusting you against the first real hurdle of the game... Then you
  15. Assuming you mean remodel the playset that is already there and not do something completely different... (Gotta love Photoshop) Barring that, being able to replace the playset, I would have preferred the staff able to keep with the original plan of giving Twilight the Castle of the Two Sisters in the Everfree Forest. The planned castle had enough unique architecture to be its own thing, but wasn't an eyesore like the crystal castle playset is,
