  1. I know many people here are young like me (19) so I was wondering if you are concerned or excited to experience the world in the next 50 years.


    The electronic revolution we live will only grow exponentially. Thinking about the technology available 50 years from now stretches the imagination as far as it can go. Nanotechnology poses many exciting solutions, but can also cause problems. Global warming and overpopulation threaten the ecosystem. And what will our nations be like if there is no viable solution to the energy crisis?


    So in 50 years will we be living a peaceful society; our massive cities powered by cold fusion, having Honda robots cook us diner? Will be in biohazard suits? Will coastal cities be underwater, or covered by ice? Will it be like 1984? I don’t know… no body knows. But when I read the news everyday, I sometimes see a very bad future, and sometimes a very good and exciting future. So this is all the stuff I think about everyday, and considering that 70 might actually be considered middle aged in the future or at least not that old, (I stay healthy) I think its important we are concerned. So what do you guys think?

  2. Well, I think none of us can say with certanity about 9/11, maybe it was a plane, but maybe the goverment was behind it or had a hand in it. Or maybe is really was a terrorist attack... Because after all there is always doubt...


    But I don't think it would be in country's best intrest to lets say prove with some real evidence that the goverment was behind it. Its best to keep this story the way it is, even if its not true. I think it would cause choas, probably riots, severe mistrust of the government, probably economic chaos if such evidence were to come out.


    And lets say the government was behind 9/11... In that case, there probably would be a very good reason to kill 3,000 U.S. citizens.... one that would perhaps benefit the nation 15, 20 years down the road , lets say when oil runs out or something... I don't know... I mean theories say that Pearl Harbour was known about.. well look what WW2 did for the country...

  3. This one is a pretty well known logic question, but probably the hardest of its kind I've come across... I figure I'll post it incase some people don't know about it



    Your in a hallway with two doors. One leads to hell, one leads to heaven. There is a guard standing by each door. One of the guards always tells the truth and the other one always lies. You have one question to ask, what will it be? (assuming you want to go to heaven)


    Thats the all info you have...




    Don't google it :) if you know any other ones that are harder than this post them up... :)

  4. Another question may be - Would it subconciously or knowingly lower our respect for them if we found out their DNA was a very large factor.

    Personally' date=' I think it may have a little to do with it - but the ideas and enviroment and processes would have to been acquired and done by the person.[/quote']



    Your right, I mean that is the old debate in psychology.. perhaps tests from thier DNA would show how much genetics has to do with a person


    It has to have at least some effect though

  5. I know we still have hair and such from people like Mozart and Beethoven and I am sure many other brilliant minds (like Einstein’s maybe)?


    Is anyone making an attempt to save their DNA so that in the future analysis could be done to see if there was something different about in the genetic code in order to see what made them tick?


    I know it might sound stupid, but I think once genetic engineering comes around, it might be important… no?

  6. I don't understand what is exactly suprising about ancient homo sapians being able to function in modern society (adjusting environmental factors of course). Society really hasn't changed since ancient times, as much as we'd like to think we aren't barbaric, sometimes we can give ourselves too much credit and our ancestors too little.



    exactly thats what this fact would support...

  7. I remember hearing somewhere that our DNA is nearly the same as the Homo sapiens that lived say 70,000 years ago... which means if I take a baby born 70,000 years ago and put him in our society he would grow up normal (discounting for genetic diseases) and the same would work visa versa..



    Is this true?

  8. the army should have somthin like that

    great camo and the enemies wouldnt kno what hit them' date='literally[/quote']



    They do, or in development at least. I saw it on the discovery channel or something...


    I think they were using for swat and domestic law enforcement too (good for hostage situations etc)
