I was talking to a friend about my idea for the next Star Trek show. One set in a remote federation outpost where a Federation Admiral is corrupt, and there is a crew of a non-federation (human captain) ship that is constantly having to deal with him. Think Dukes of Hazzard. The Admiral makes them out to be criminals, but the reverse is true and this ship is always coming to the aid of people in the sector while trying to scrape out a living and possible get the big score. The crew would be a Human male captain (I am thinking about reprising William Campbell as Thadiun Okona) An old Klingon with a death wish (just wants to die in battle, but whenever he get the chance he is needed and misses the opportunity) (also he likes 80s rock and plays the guitar) Exiled Romulan who constantly clashes with the Kingon (looking for evidence to go home and reunite with his family) Orion Slave Girl A female Nausicaan (twist that female Nausicaans are attractive) Vash might be a recurring guest star.
Yes, let's not discuss the past and how we shouldn't ever repeat such things.
Nazi's executed people with genetic defects and diseases in the "public interest", and while you may think it is fine to forcibly inject people with vaccines that are morally objectionable, I am sure you would hate it if they forced their beliefs on you, because whatever you say "science" is your religion. Science can be wrong, it has happened many times in the past. You are just as crazed as you say these religions people are. You need a little perspective. If they don't get vaccinated are they a hazard to you who is vaccinated? The answer is no.
Glad you are so happy to tread on another rights. By your same logic we should ban aspirin and alcohol too. http://www.ncadd.org/index.php/in-the-news/155-25-million-alcohol-related-deaths-worldwide-annually "Conservative calculations estimate that approximately 107,000 patients are hospitalized annually for nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID)-related gastrointestinal (GI) complications and at least 16,500 NSAID-related deaths occur each year among arthritis patients alone." (Singh Gurkirpal, MD, “Recent Considerations in Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drug Gastropathy”, The American Journal of Medicine, July 27, 1998, p. 31S)
While measles can be fatal so can be Chicken Pox, so it would be like our children saying the same thing about Chicken Pox when they are adults. Sure it is uncomfortable and not at all desirable to get the parents should not be charged. Also there more than a fear of Autism there is a moral reason some choose not to have their children vaccinated, some of these vaccines were developed using aborted fetuses. http://www.cogforlife.org/vaticanresponse.htm http://www.cogforlife.org/vaccineinfo.htm
Nintendo has made a business reselling us the same games over and over with maybe slight improvements. I am done with this. How many times do I need to buy Super Mario Bros? I can play the old games and they are just as fun. Nintendo needs to make completely new games and stop focusing on giving us Mario, Zelda, Metroid, Mario Kart, etc.
If this uses the existing systems out there, they must be providing customers with a WiFi or Bluetooth enabled card that can change its own magnetic strip to have different account information on it?
Keeping up appearances, making is somewhat difficult?
Funny, as you can already do this on any rooted Android and the Netflix app. It didn't stop netflix from making the Android app. Your point is invalid. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ms.screencast&feature=search_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDEsImNvbS5tcy5zY3JlZW5jYXN0Il0.
Hey now, obviously you must think that you are nothing more than the sum of your parts. Personally, I think there is something more. But anyways here is the definition since you don't know what the work means. http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/soul
Something intangible. The spark of life. Hey do you remember that 80s thriller drama where a father is diagnosed with a terminal disease and is frozen. He is thawed years later (his son is now close in age to the father) but when he was reanimated he was soulless/evil?
Ahh, but it wouldn't be you, as you are dead. It would be a simulation of you. I would imagine that the brain simulations would be done in the future for ability to retain knowledge of the previous generations. The alive people wouldn't maintain those computer systems for simulations of past generations to have fun. Most likely they would boot you up, consult with you for some fact or advice the put you in sleep mode until next time you are needed.
The map is there, with the layout of the neurons, in the simulation you just replace the damaged neurons with simulations of healthy ones.
http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Bareil_Antos "Dr. Bashir, on the orders of Bareil, gave him an experimental drug that let him function for a few days. However, the drug did irreversible damage to the vedek's organs, eventually destroying part of his brain. At Kira's urging, Bashir replaced the damaged brain region with an artificial positronic implant, so that Bareil could continue to advise Winn. Soon after the peace treaty was signed, the remainder of Bareil's brain was destroyed. Kira and Bashir decided to allow him to die, rather than replace his entire brain with a machine. (DS9: "Life Support")"
It was mostly in jest, but being that it is a simulation, is it real at all. Will it have a soul? I would think that in a few decades that computers would be able to run such a simulation.
