Default An esoteric thought...

All autoduellists (driver or gunner) weigh 150 pounds and take up 2 spaces. Is this because all autoduellists (driver or gunner) are actually all clones of the same person? I'm sure a little genetic engineering could yeild both male and female clones.

No -- it's a byproduct of the lousy diet algae-food causes; not near enough calcium or other stuff needed for growing bodies. The Romans had the same problem.

No -- they did eat a lot of meat, and cursed-few vegetables (or anything else).

So all the Romans weighed 150 pounds? Or just the chariot drivers?

Probably less -- skeletons found suggest the typical Roman was around 5' 6" and looked like he'd been on the "Paleo diet". Coupled to all the marching and training they did, they probably looked a lot like pro wrestlers (when they weren't dying from camp diseases).

It's bad enough dying from normal disease without then being camp.

I remember going to Camp Cholera as a kid. All the cook made there were algae burgers.
