He really sucks. He actually picked up part of the fascia. He's a clumsy oaf.

BTW, usually you don't use a guillotine to kill animals unless you're a sadistic mother fucker. You use the guillotine to remove their head for easier access to the brain. Which you have carefully prepared by slowly killing the rat by slicing its diaphragm and injecting saline into its heart to flush all that pesky blood out.

Did you read what you wrote?

Yes, it would be disappointing if something said nanotechnology and nanomachines and all you got was nanoparticles. However, all it said was nanoparticles. Why would you expect anything else? More importantly, do we even need anything else? (btw, google around, there's already nanomotors that can be used inside human cells... though all they can do is bump into stuff)

Hard to say, depends on how the experiments were going. For example, if you stand on snow and melt it you're going to lose body temperature quickly, so it seems better not to melt the snow. However, if you melt the snow quickly enough and form a puddle the water will distribute heat equally resulting in no perception of cold. Also, below freezing it's a lot more comfortable and warm on top of snow than bare concrete.

There's two key things here. Humans perceive hot & cold through differences in temperature and the human body, when on automatic pilot, usually defaults to worst-case-scenario.

On perception of cold, the body panics and changes blood flow to keep heat in the core. This automatically makes you more easily damaged by the cold because now you have insufficient heat in your extremities and it 'feels' colder. It's a vicious cycle.

That's on auto-pilot. If you don't let your body go in to panic mode, made easier by reducing temp differences between body parts, you'll find that the human body functions quite well in the cold. Learning to increase/decrease heat distribution in your body is key here along with being able to shut the machine up. It's one of the easiest body systems to access. Just requires a little simple visualization a la "my hand is getting hot/cold".

When I had a condo, everyday I used to do standing meditation on my balcony. In boxers because there's laws against public nudity.

This was in canada. During the winter. You'd be suprised what your body is capable of once you get your mind to stop constantly telling you your 'limitations'. This and my body still isn't functioning properly or anywhere near its potential.

A 10 day fast is the easiest way to begin to distinguish mental recordings and reality. The reality your brain creates is very real and can be lethal. One must learn to control it at all costs.
