Edwardo17: Genetically engineered super soldiers, you say?Sure, as long as they look like this.
Jim_Callahan: skinink: Just to let ther gov't know: when they are ready to go forward with this, you should pick me as a test subject because I was great at Deux Ex.[img202.imageshack.us image 515x640]I'll one-up you. I was good at that game, but also have patience for one with similar themes and a pacing closer to an actual human research trial:[wiki.eveonline.com image 287x187]

Dingleberry Dickwad: mjjt: Obviously no-one will ever accept enhanced people[i47.tinypic.com image 284x177]It's one thing to be mechanically enhanced due to loss of limb, and entirely another to be genetically engineered from birth. See the movie Gattica for an idea on how that would work out.

gaslight: You know who else wanted genetically superior soldiers?
phlegmmo: "Mr. President, we must not allow a mutant gap!"
Lexx: It's only a matter of time, really. *EVENTUALLY* we'll see genetic engineering of humans at a level which enables us to overcome disease, cancer, loss of vitality to aging, etc. The only question is when.

So you can store CDs and DVDs on a thumb drive. You can also install games directly on the thumb drive. Make sure to run them on a fast USB port or they'll be slow.DO NOT download DAEMON Tools Lite from any source that asks you to download other files with it, pay a fee, or give out your personal information.

President Merkin Muffley: Not going to use daemon tools ever again.
Emposter: Become a virtually immortal 8 foot tall battle armored badass that borders on being superhuman?Yeah, I could go for that.
t3knomanser: President Merkin Muffley: Not going to use daemon tools ever again.It's pretty stunning that after all this time, Microsoft hasn't provided a solution for this. Every other OS on Earth can mount ISOs without resorting to third party software. Microsoft still distributes much of its software on ISO, yet Windows can't mount it without help.
DerAppie: Emposter: Become a virtually immortal 8 foot tall battle armored badass that borders on being superhuman?Yeah, I could go for that.Borders on? Poison resistance, poison spit, being able to bite through metal, fused ribs, bullet resistant skin, increased healing and strength (amongst others) isn't enough to be superhuman?

Foxxinnia: The Pentagon's human-alien hybrid program has been shackled with inefficiencies since the early 80's with Reagan's numerous budget cuts. Reagan, Weinberger, and Bush misinterpreted the reasons behind the Human-Alien Genetic Hybridization program's failure to deliver on their stated goals with their XXO-0079i prototype. They, naturally, saw things through their small government perspective, while the HAGH's problems were more rooted in the Carter administration's more holistic defense aims which neutered HAGH's funding and flexibility. The DoD pawned HAGH's responsibilities off to a number of defense contractors in an effort to spur innovation through competition, but the division of talent only resulted in a number of programs too small and lacking in expertise to produce human-alien hybrids with any real practicality. While the diversity of contractor backgrounds certainly made for innovative concepts, they simply were not feasible and the hybridization aspects were often overshadowed by the contractor's primary development aims.Take for instance, General Dynamics' ill-fated "Dallara" prototypes which spliced Whadrian psychonetic genes with human fetuses which were then incubated for 15-months in a HGH/VZX-based slurry. The souls were then extracted in a F-class exorcism and placed in a Stryker. The soul would then utilize Whadrian sub-neural soothe-melodies to place passengers and Stryker operators into a hyper-aware fugue state. We all know that the initial results showed that the Whadrian-induced states were great for improving soldier awareness (soldiers spotting camouflaged enemies at over 15000 yards with only their eyes) and endurance (5.2 shots to the torso before experiencing any pain). But only one additional exposure to the soothe-melodies resulted in the soldiers' brains collapsing into themselves and leaving them with the same mental acuity as a Gila Monster. $1.6 Billion down the drain because General Dynamics did not have any communication with SAI ...
