Bathia_Mapes: EVERYBODY PANIC: Oldiron_79: AdolfOliverPanties: ...Maybe you should. She weighs 16 pounds and has an estimated mental age of nine months to one year.
Mangoose: How long until this devolves into a Chris Hansen vs. Pedobear cage match?
timujin: I once worked with a girl with a similar, though much less extreme, condition. She was also about 20, maybe 22, but she looked like she was maybe 12. The first time I saw her I assumed she was a kid who'd come to work with one of her parents. No mental issues, though, like this girl. From what I understand, she was just like anyone else, except that she looked like she was in middle school.
Just Another OC Homeless Guy: gweilo8888: Skyrmion: gweilo8888: So I repeat: anybody who dreams of immortality is a selfish farkstick. You're born, you die. Live the bit in between, and stop expecting it to last forever.That's OK. I'd be willing to put up with being called a selfish farkstick if I could get immortality.Ah, but would you be willing to put up with it forever?Actually, anybody asking for immortality -- assuming they couldn't still end their own life, anyway -- hasn't thought it through even slightly. I'd imagine by your 500th full joint replacement, things would start to get rather tedious. And not being able to remember 99% of your own life. And dealing with the fact that technology had progressed so far that you simply couldn't understand how *anything* worked any more. (Ever seen a 60 or 70 year old struggling with a PC, which is little more than a typewriter on steroids, has been readily available for half their lives already, and developed alongside them where they had ample opportunity to learn as the tech progressed? Now imagine how well you're going to cope when dealing with the year 2500's technology.) And having watched thousands upon thousands of non-immortal friends and family come and go. Or alternatively, having had to deal with the overcrowding caused by all those other immortals if it became widely available.Holymarymotherofgod, you ARE a moron. How old are you? Are you 12? By the time immortality arrives, the relatively "simple" body fixes will have been long mastered. Cloned parts, cyber parts, perhaps entire cloned bodies, And anyone who needs 500 full joint replacements will not be buying the quality stuff. Memories? There are some things I'd rather forget. And, by that time, selective memory wipes will probably be available. As for memory retention, by the time they get to the immortality phase, there will be wetware biochips (the next step after silicone reaches Moore's Limit) where we can store all the extraneous memories we want to warehouse, but not ...

gweilo8888: Just Another OC Homeless Guy: Holymarymotherofgod, you ARE a moron. How old are you? Are you 12? By the time immortality arrives, the relatively "simple" body fixes will have been long mastered.Oh, OK. You're that sort of person. The idiot who believes he can see the future, and the future is perfect. The past has a habit of showing that world view to be utterly wrong.Buh-bye now. You're on ignore.
gweilo8888: On that one front -- human....
What_Would_Jimi_Do: Jument: gweilo8888: BronyMedic: You must be a blast at parties.Hah!I just don't like selfish people, and immortality is close to the most selfish thing anybody could possibly ask for.Driving a Hummer is way worse.I'd love to be immortal. Eventually I would get tired of living, obviously, but the world is a very large place. I'm sure I could live several lifetimes at least without getting the least bit bored of it.Pleased to meet you, hope you guessed my name.
fusillade762: No one bit on the "curing gay" troll. I'm proud of you Farkers.
Genevieve Marie: That Encyclopedia Dramatica one should offend anyone with a soul.
BronyMedic: Encyclopedia Dramatica has a far less tactful telling of the story. (NSFW)
OgreMagi: There's something wrong with her and you are a horrible person if you would turn down a chance to fix her.
Darth_Lukecash: Whatever this kid is missing, may hold the key to immortality.
BarkingUnicorn: namegoeshere: There is one girl on a commercial for home health care services here that has something similar. She looks about 9 months old, is the size of an infant, but on the commercial she's on the computer, purposely manipulating the mouse and reading something. She has a breathng tube and glasses. They don't say an age or the name of her condition, just how happy they are that Home Health Care allows her to live at home full time.Could be a precocious baby.
Oldiron_79: AdolfOliverPanties: Too old./amidoingitrite?You're going to special hell.
AdolfOliverPanties: Too old./amidoingitrite?
jaylectricity: Revek: I mean most of you "ex snowflakes"Do we have ex-snowflakes yet? I thought they were all still under the age of 13.
jim32rr: Lsherm: That is farked up. And mom has panface.The sister looks pretty good, though.Perspective, glad you have one
