Genetic manipulation for survival in space, it begins!

I still say we need skin that uses genes from that radiation eating fungus in Chernobyl. Forget making it into sunscreen, just make our skin radiotrophic. It will help with surviving climate change and of course, skin color based racism ;)

Not all sci-fi novels are to be believed.

The only viable, long distance spacecraft (imo) will need
radiation-blocking, asteroid-and-tiny-particle blocking/avoiding/anihilation technology.
Until then, most manned craft will either be destroyed in transit (I think most likely)
on the way there or back.

Forgot to add, perfected suspended animation tech, cuz no sane person
could tolerate weeks of conversing with someone like you know who (i.e. Cunt).

I think hibernation and lowered metabolism are genetic possibilities.



Lots of virtual reality games would be good...


:awesome:

Read Starswarm (c 1985) by Brian Aldiss.

It's about genetic mods specific to colonization.
Anything from teeny tiny water humanoids to methane breathing humanoids.

I own a copy as pictured in the below.
Don't remember if I repurchased it on EBay in the late 2000s
or if it's the first (only) copy I bought.

Do liver spots satisfy your weird craving? Because they ARE coming.

Zeluvia 11th September 2020 10:29 PM

This is why you shouldn't use commercial lotions, and stick with moisturizing your skin with Tallow or lard : )


:awesome:

Many moisturisers, both mainstream and natural, are full of high-PUFA plant and vegetable oils which can contribute not only to liver spots, but also to dry and stressed-out skin.

I spent a lot of money in my youth on commercial products for a variety of things, but when I got older and the dry skin was getting really bad, they weren't helping. I didn't really like the idea of using silicon lotions, which was what the doctor prescribed.


So I went back to using what my grandmother and her mother used, lard.


I won't go back. It fucking works. It's cheap as hell. I wish I could my hands on Bear Fat, that is supposed to be even better, with higher concentrations of vitamin A, D, and E.
