I doubt they're viewing any on going development, likely the thing already had genes present to allow it to develop differently if given a season with less water available.
Average weight of a south Korean male is 70kg, so almost 43% of their body weight. I agree though, wimpy. I can't imagine bothering to put it on. Even if it's additive to your current strength, it would be a waste of time. If you are constantly moving stuff that heavy you could do it faster with a forklift. If you are constantly moving lighter stuff you can do it faster without the suit.
Its likely best to start a book at 15 and slowly drop it down, just like like every other entertainment medium.... and like they already do by releasing hard backs first. The price thing is true though. I read a lot, I probably buy 2 or 3 books a week and when I am digging for books to buy I give a lot more consideration to cheap books. More expensive books are given much lower priority when I am considering what to buy. I wouldnt even consider a $15 book and a $10 is barely within consideration. $3 is more like it and $6 being a stretch.
What about the fact that if it's all the way dead and you try to charge it on the plane, the battery can be a fire hazard.
Doesn't seem that far fetched when you consider hydrogen is a metal....
That's because small cars are easier to drive and most drivers are pretty unskilled. Walk through a parking lot looking for poorly parked vehicles and most of them are going go be behemoths. The drivers have no concept of where the vehicle is in relation to the stuff around it. That doesn't help matters for the person in the small car, it just means the best case scenario is to be in a behemoth and know how to operate it.
Because she probably has kids. Everyone wants their kids to be safe. If everyone else is in a 5000lb suv and you are in a mini, one good punt from an inattentive SUV and your kids are hospitalized or dead while the SUV lady's rug rats are fine. Someone puts their safety ahead of others, then it's a ridiculous arms race to keep up or be crushed. I'm not putting my hypothetical kids in a 1800lb car on an busy American interstate until everyone else is in them too.
Just take off the pirate outfit and put on a full face helmet and proper motorcycle safety gear. It will look natural I promise.
Why use them as range extenders. Why not just pack enough in to do a year of driving the recycle the filling and put in new plates? If it costs less than about $1500 to do most people would be fine with it.
This is no closer to 3d printed fruit than the jello fruit stuff that's been served since the invention of jello.
Works much better when you take advantage of its octane rating. High compression or turbo, but then you are stuck using ethanol or race gas.
Unless money is involved.
Sounds awesome but its so expensive I would rather spend the money on other parts for a more tangible gain.
Its creative fictional entertainment. Demanding to be added to someone elses fictional universe for fairness sake is absurd lol. "Dear author, I demand you add me to your book RIGHT NOW!!!"
All that expensive light weight carbon fiber is completely worth it because it will help my carp port accelerate faster when its picked up by a wind storm.
