Wow, that's a particularly farked up disease.

Cagey B: Wow, that's a particularly farked up disease.


My thoughts exactly.

She's got the greyscale!

I'm amazed she's made it that long. For how clumsy I am, I would've been a garden gnome statue long before now.

Seriously.  Jeezums, talk about being dealt a bad hand.

Sounds like a supervillain origin story.

Badmoodman: "Woman has rare genetic disease changing her into Weeping Angel."

Boehner has the same disease, but in his case he's changed into Weeping Asshole.

I had a friend whose father died from this.  Pretty rough stuff.

Don't upgrade your blink.

We can rebuild her.

You know, I was just sitting here feeling all sorry for myself, cause I got bills to pay and it's Friday and no money to enjoy the weekend, blah, blah, blah.  I came to FARK for a little levity and now I think I'm going to spend some time counting my blessings.

What a Farked up way to live.  That poor woman.
 
2013-10-18 05:35:37 PM  
My sources tell me that's pretty farked up.

I think the cure is a Jelly Baby.

Military genetic researchers particularly interested. Maybe it's the mad scientist in me but seems like you could make this an advantageous "disorder" if properly scienced.
 
2013-10-18 05:43:43 PM  
Unless Sally Sparrow is involved I'm not interested.
 
2013-10-18 05:45:35 PM  
That GIS was horrifying.

Just...wow. That poor woman.

Also, this chick is pretty interesting and lovely:

Not if you don't mind getting a boner right back at ya.

It's not all bad.

At least she can fly.

It's about time we spend some serious money and resources on understanding just exactly what each effing atom in each crappy chromosome is doing there.

Weeping anal?

Okay, I'm not proud of this, but I laughed.

Pak protector?

Seriously, this woman is darn cool. Good on her and I really hope they find some way to slow the disease while she's still around to take advantage of it. Curing it I'm sure will take much longer.
 
2013-10-18 06:19:09 PM  
Jeeeezus. I also went to the Wiki page, and it seems that almost everything a well-meaning doctor might do; biopsies and intubation stood out especially, would cause even more harm to the patient. It's like the biological equivalent of being buried alive.

Cardinal Law, is that you?

And then we can print ourselves new ones at home :)

AUAIOMRN: Battle Angel Alita


Man, this brought back memories, so I went online and found out that Cameron has the rights but it's shelved. Which makes me wonder: Is it better that it may one day be re-done, or better that Cameron has yet to "improve" it?

Absolutely loved the OVA.

Armor that is pliable, yet when bruised it becomes hard? I thought we had something like that already. Although, the stuff isn't really "armor" as much as it is protective gear (helmets, knee pads, etc), and is used in the sport industry. What this would advantageous would be in the same military/sports fields, where if you broke a bone, the gear automatically held the damaged limb in place, to protect it from further damage.

some one should show her the usual comments on fark and then show her these postings.
for gods sake, we laugh at anne frank but this woman has brought us down a bit.
so i too wish her the best.

BafflerMeal: I had a friend whose father died from this.  Pretty rough stuff.


are you sure it was the same disease? sounds like most people who have it can't reproduce.

\which is probably a good thing

With that kinda headline I'm surpriaed subby stops watching Doctor Who on netflix long enough to read a news article. NTTAWWT.
 
2013-10-18 09:32:33 PM  
Didn't Ringworld have an armor similar to this?

Read the book - it is still continuing and coming out to this day. Rather a good amount of philosophy mixed in with the combat.

Maybe there's a milder form?  or a non-genetic version?
Son of one of my mom's friends developed a milder version of this in his thirties, and has a couple of kids, iirc.

He was playing soccer, got kicked in the thigh, hard...and a month later, his doctor discovered BONE growing in the thigh muscle tissue.

Gah.

I for one am just glad she hasn't decided shed be better off as a goddamned Dalek. I think we're all safer for that.
