My stats: Int 3 Str 3 Dex 3 Con 3 Wis 4 Cha 2 Medic! :shock: .. About Wis/Int, I remember a funny quote from a book explaining the difference. An intelligent will conclude that drops of water are falling on his head, it must be raining. A wise man will conclude that drops of water are falling on hi...

I've been thinking a bit more about it (a failing of mine)... Lets for a moment assume stem cells can be used to grow a new brain, or brain mass, encapsulated in another body (organic/mechanical, doesn't matter) Assume further that you consciousness is in your brain, and is defined by the current "s...

The stem cell research reminds me a bit of the discovery of how to split the atom. Lots of potential for both use (power) and abuse (boom).

Gorth, I like that name. Reminds me of Wayne's World...only darker. :D Actually, "Gorth" is a tribute to my first internet account from the year of the lord 1988 A.D.

Let me guess: Feargus didn't really think that the time and money invested in Fo:BoS was well spent either.
