Why would you consider the technology that can improve human cognition and athletic ability to be a tranny meme? I understand there are a lot of troons in the biohacking scene and that a lot of that stuff is over hyped but that tech is making leaps and bounds. That technology could be very useful and it's biotech that isn't in the hands of major pharmaceutical companies, surely that is something good.

Also with more major advancements it could be used for pony waifu.

I'm not terribly familiar with it, but it I only ever inadvertently stumble across it when it's some random tranny wanting a robot pussy or something. People who are unhappy about their biology and use transhumanism as an autistic cope.

I just don't trust it and I can only see it being used against my race.

Sounds kind of like a fantasy buzzword to me, but I admittedly know quite little about it. Genetic engineering takes years, but I guess with advancements in tech it could some day be done quite rapidly.

You know you can buy some of the equipment online, right? Like you can get an open source EEG for $200 or a tDCS device for around $100. It's something anyone can do and it's not terribly expensive.

I really doubt trannies would get any good use of it until well after it's widely implemented. It's more likely to be used for medicine and crop production.

If all necessary resources, funding, researchers and attention were allocated towards it and all ethical standards and obstacles were bulldozed, plausibly.

I'm surprised that I don't see more bronies on alogs.space/robowaifu. Seems like quadruped sexbots would solve a lot of engineering problems.

I've been watching some Cowboy Bebop lately: the setting has every planet in the solar system fully terraformed and inhabited by peaceful, agrarian rural societies by 2070. It's fantasy, but it's also pretty nice.

Environments are so messy in Cowboy Bebop and I think it's interesting that old people react to it with "omg this world feels so organic and lived in and natural" while younger people react with "jesus christ doesnt anyone clean in this universe? Why is everyone a fucking junkie? Christ some kid's playing the harmonica in a smoking room".

I get why small viruses aren't considered life but I just don't understand why giant viruses are considered nonliving while intracellular oblobigate bacteria like rickettsia are considered to be alive.

It's not really a question of size, but functionality. Viruses have no capability to reproduce on their own, and no biologica funtions other than to stick to and infect host cells. They technically can't even move on their own. They don't move, breed, eat, breath or fuck: they're better described as objects than living things; plausibly the vestige of some bygone cell-signalling method gone horribly wrong.

This is is also true of intracellular obligate bacteria.

Giant viruses have all the nessicary genes for metabolism.

What? What kinds of metabolic functions do they even have? Do they have any catabolic or anabolic activities?

"Storing explosions and taking them home to put them somewhere more useful" indeed. We can get hydrogen from places far less dangerous than the sun.
