Re: The extent of human augmentation in our future (and anim

I highly suggest reading 2312 from author Kim Stanley Robinson. In his depiction of the future, being around the age of 100 is still considered pretty young, human augmentations are the norm, and humans on different planets are like different species because of the climate differences. The protagon...

The extent of human augmentation in our future (and anime)

I'm a fickle person. Every time I write any kind of story, I'm sure to do the research and touch on every single detail. (Well, all the ones that I can.) All technology progresses, so that's how it is when I write. I'm a bit bothered when I see certain sci-fis and their lack of consideration for all...

Better get Micheal Bay on speed-dial Neo. Unless of course you're house has stairs leading up to it, impeccable defense system for: The ED-209?

Ideal, um... cockpit location/position

Keep joking to a minimum please. Thank you. Well, I just finished Zone of the Enders: the 2nd Runner (I was expecting to play as naked Jehuty for longer) and dug up an old pondering of mine: Where is the best place for a mech's cockpit? How should the hatch open? (Back of the neck, Arm Slave style? ...

Re: Ep. 107 - Kio and the High Price of Placebo

Damn, I was really hoping that AGE would've turned out better. I liked the multi-generational concept and was hoping it could've been "saved" after generation 2... (Wait, why the hell weren't the 3 generations divided into 3 individual seasons? or would that have made too much sense?) Also, does Bon...

Scroll down to the 13th page and read on from there. Hope this helps. Best of luck to your RPG. :) I'm not sure how much that is supposed to help.

Natural, artificial, and natural-artificial oxygen creation.

IN SPACE! Yeah, exactly what it says on the tin guys. It's a question I've always asked about space shows: Is it possible to synthesize oxygen within a spacecraft via some sort of artificial (I assume having actual trees in the space-ship will take up too much space and water, but it's still a poss...

Re: Cheap Japanese Animation Thread

Reason? Because it just is. (I've tried a healthy debate, and ended up failing each time.) One suspects that they do this as a pre-emptive defensive maneuver to avoid bringing up certain elements of SW & being revealed as hypocrites--as an SW fan myself, I know full well that the SW franchise is ri...

I've recently become a fan of Zone of the Enders, having bought both games and the anime series on complete collection.
