Re: [ATE] Farming example

Oh yeah. Bioremediation and removal of radioactive would make sense for post apoc settings that have started to recover.
Even moderately increased risk of cancer and organ damage aren't as...

Re: [ATE] Farming example

Walking through an area is a lot easier than living in it. There are nuclear test sites from decades ago that are not safe for people to inhabit now or for the foreseeable future.

Re: Link an historical character to the cited advantage

I somewhat disagree. Most attractive for porn is not the same as a general, most attractive. Context is key for aesthetics, especially when libidos are concerned.

Re: What TL is the original Star Trek?

That isn't superscience. It actually exists now. It's difficult and requires practice, but simple controls operated by brain waves is real world tech. And Pike only used it for very simple...

Re: New Sci Fi Setting Seeds

Even for small short life span animals, 1k years is very short to make new species that would look really different to non-biologists.
But with high cinema, one could just make the meteorite contain...

Re: What TL is the original Star Trek?

By that logic, every fictional future conceived of now would be TL 8+X. We can't make a TL 9 setting, because it would require things we don't know about the future.

Re: [IW] Ordinary Worlds with valuables!

I've read some assertions that music is strongly influenced by a species' metabolic rate and natural vocalizations, and not just hearing ranges.

Re: Catalog of the Weird Parallels

I would think colonization marketing departments would try to avoid names of authors with heavy connections to Lovecraft.

Re: Emergence of Supers Timeline

A super dying to protect mundanes from another super may make many think that only supers can effectively fight supers, and that they're still human not demonic demigods.

Re: Biotech: Help me justify good looking females with high strength values

Exactly what the normal range of stats are is often debated.
But 6'2, mildly beefy lean upper tier women lifters should certainly pass 13 in lifting strength at least

Re: Biotech: Help me justify good looking females with high strength values

Hysterical strength is real if not at the level most urban legends state.

There is a disorder that's the opposite of osteoporosis.

It's not good.

Re: Catalog of the Weird Parallels

According to one source in Wikipedia it costs 250 million dollars to produce 10 milligrams. Storing it is not the primary reason why we can't make antimatter bombs at the moment.

You don't have to adjust the physical when it's "easier" to adjust the society's ideals of beauty.

Re: Bioengineering/Strength and Weight

One way to increase effective strength would be to simply increase resistance to injury when "red-lining". We all have a little bit of emergency force we rarely use for safety's sake. I don't think...

Re: Bioengineering/Strength and Weight

Those looked like steroid abusing body builders, not weight lifters. Look at world record holders of lifting for each weight category. Even the men rarely look anywhere near that beefy.

Re: Biotech

May and not must. Though there's certainly lots of wiggle room between the two. Not recommended and risky are also possibilities depending on what specific species modding is done.

Re: Biotech and human reproduction

So conventionally, leopards, lions, tigers, and jaguars are all the same species? I somehow doubt that most people believe that.

Re: Regular Asgardians

If we're going to really "over-analyze" them, is it really sensible to have them weigh on the order of 600 lbs? That will cause problems in many places that I don't comic versions ever experience. ...
