more than a dozen, by my count.

If he doesn't finish Fell and Doktor Sleepless soon, I am flying to England with a harpoon.  That fat bastard has damn near gone too far.

Goddamn. The man needs a little discipline.

Anyway, back to the thread topic at hand.

Nah, the tranhumanism thing. As soon as he pulled out the word salad, I just told my eyes to filter out whatever he posts. Much happier that way.

Honestly, I think the future we're heading towards will look a lot like Transmetro, Snow Crash, and a William Gibson novel, though a little less dramatic and a fair bit less dystopian. The basic idea of using science and technology to improve humanity doesn't seem like a bad idea mostly.

Some of the technologies that are going to be coming through in the next couple of decades are really interesting. Carbon nanotubes for instance are going to revolutionize the entire goddamn planet. Bulletproof clothing, better heat conduits, all kinds of amazing things.

I'm looking forward to the next couple of decades just because of the sheer amount of interesting/horrible things that are going to happen.

Point.  I'll do the same.

Odds are, those things will involve fighting over the last of the canned food.

Hmm. True, that is also a likely outcome. But I'm placing my bet on the cyberpunk-kinda future.

Okay.  If you win, I get cybernetic hemmoroids.

If I win, I get to eat you and take your gasoline.

How about if I win, you pay for my cyberarms and personal Rat Thing guard.

And sure, if you win you can eat me and take my gas.

Fine, but you better not cheap out on me.

If I end up with glitch filled, poorly designed implants, then there will be words.

Are you asking for an admission of trans-humanism?

Whats wrong with Transhumanism?



Transhumanists tend to be too optimistic about the whole thing.
