  1. A mutation IS a change in genetic material.
  2. your pictures aren't showing. Also, since when are marshes worth money ?
  3. Exactly how many nuclear bombs have you got in your shed ?
  4. you should be able to edit code after running. you re probably using a compiler which changes the code so it can be run, best to make a back-up before running/compiling, or figure out what turbo c+ exactly does upon running.
  5. By what measurement ? As i see it, we 've had little to no use to them, and they 're often poisonous, more harmfull then helpfull, which is enough for any negative reaction to evolve: in evolution a reaction is only "excessive" when it is disadvantageous.
  6. Not unlikely, i was thinking more affordable clothing.
  7. It looks like a sequence of which only one member/instant has been posted. If those are two instances i 'd either go for 3,21 or for 3, 30(though 3, 30 seems too simple)
  8. bodies repair themselves, medical science can support this process, for example with healthy nutrition, which is already available for those who look for it.

    For the same reason(s) people nowadays want to be buried or cremated upon their demise.

    About me

    I don't have a cat but occasionally a neighbour's cat comes along whom i then feed some yogurt.
  12. bingo. If you're going to use movies to learn about real space-travel, then you've got a bumpy road ahead of you
  13. We don't need high metallicity, we need easy access to the basics (air, water & food) only after that we have use for(want) other resources for development and export, which could be metals but also plastics or rare materials.
  14. Somebody actually died, seems worth investigating in my mind. Sure, it might be more about clearing reputation then trying to put the suspect in jail, but, in the end, as long as the judge does care about the suspect's guilt or innocence, justice will be served. Would you prefer a situation where cops who killed someone(whether by gun, taser or bare hands) would get off because "cops can't be criminals" ? My guess is that the cop will be found innocent as he's a cop and not a shrink, faced with a mentally unstable person he did everything that could(should) be expected of any cop.
  15. @mistermack; If you're going to divide people in "100% free people" & "slaves"" then you're right, and then we had slavery at least up to ~1991(Soviet-Union). For a more nuanced view; serfs belonged to the land, and it wasn't as much that they weren't allowed to leave, as it was that other lords weren't allowed to poach them for their own. They had rights, which slowly increased, and the abilitie to rebel(albeit not always successfully) Historically, the medieval times(or dark ages) were a time of upheaval and survival, the old (Roman) system had fallen and anyone not able to protect his own was bound to go under, the new system was made on-the-spot everywhere, based on what was there previously(both tribalism & civilization, but also on both slavery & coöperation) the rights of individuals were details that had little priority for rulers, but the basics(like rights & obligations come together) were understood (at least by the more competent rulers) @Externettrade without the medium of money is called bartering. I suspect most craftsmen working in a castle were just paid in food & shelter with some luxuries(like more clothes)
