A more likely scenario would be a progression of incremental anti-aging treatments that would be released to the general public for profit reasons. The miracle cure seems unlikely.
Why not go back to school and pursue the career you never had because you were busy raising children? I think many people would gravitate to something they really care about if they had a second chance.
Now that you bring it up I don't think reversing aging is possible since they got old in the Star Trek period....
I still find the Apollo Program amazing and audacious considering the technology of the time. Now a race would be just a question of political will and funding, not nearly as exciting.
But we have already nullified environmental adaptation with clothing, housing, and agriculture. The future of human evolution is going to be based on intelligence and social adaptation.
Yes and no... they are just confirming what those of those working in 'tier 2' companies have seen over the last 10 years.
Unfortunately 'silly string' theory has taken over entire physics departments (such as at Princeton) and wasted a huge amount of mind share. Cold fusion is mote in comparison.
I don't mean easier as in effort- just in the scientific sense of having hypothesis or theories that are provable experimentally. Obviously nobody would have been willing to fund the LHC unless there was good reason to believe both the experimental and theoretical rigueur existed to support it.
Try to think of a biomedical experiment on the same level that would justify the expense- you can't because the field is much too complex.
It's much easier to design experiments for the physical sciences than the biomedical sciences.
I think my first programming attempt was recreating pong on a timex zx80 that I had checked out from the library.
I think 'being run over a truck' was loose way of saying 'dying in a traffic accident'
I wasn't arguing that a contract with a professional photographer means anything to people attending, just that they have the ability to restrict vendors to these events. The student running around taking pictures and then selling them online could be construed as acting as a vendor.
This does make things a little more fuzzy. I wouldn't be surprised if a local professional photographer was already given an exclusive contract to sell photos. I doubt that vendors can just attend an event and sell something like hot dogs for instance without some kind of agreement.
yeah it just means you are old
Yeah it's hard to imagine having a bunch of nework cables strung over a gas station being acceptable. Maybe just doing a cluster of pumps would be a better goal.
