A myopia epidemic is sweeping the globe
  • I agree. Fixing some diseases and deformities while in embryo seems the most effective solution

  • What's your favourite fruit(s) ?
  • Blackberries and raspberries! I still have fond memories of picking them walking the way to and from school

  • A myopia epidemic is sweeping the globe
  • Well like how glasses fix myopia it isnt really an ailment anymore then. Ideally that's what we should be aiming for. Fixing - not making better just to make better

    We only see people with PKU (phenylketonuria) or ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) living normally because of our advances in medical fields. Before in our history they would perish (or unfortunately be culled) like the stunted hawk

    It's a highly grey area in ethics, but I think as long as we have best interest in mind and dont end up like the humans in Wall-E we should be fine. Star Trek also covers a lot of eugenics topics and in the end they also think humans should take the course of evolution and avoid things like designer babies or genetic enhancements

    And its honestly incredible though. Humans literally fighting (and winning) against evolution/nature

  • Two more US officials resign over Biden administration’s position on Gaza war
  • “I cannot do my job in an environment in which specific people cannot be acknowledged as fully human, or where gender and human rights principles apply to some, but not to others, depending on their race,” he wrote.

    Ugh terrible. Like how do you receive a letter like this and still think "yeah I'm the right one and not a racist POS war mongering profiteer". Theres no shame anymore

  • They're not "Minifigs," they're "Lego Men." Even the female ones. I feel very strongly about this.
  • Well I like all the new helmets, hats and hairs ¯|(ツ)

  • A myopia epidemic is sweeping the globe
  • Interesting that 3/10 people globally have myopia (near sightedness)... that's absurdly high. And as the trends stay as they are they are only predicting an increase

    I guess it proves humans as a whole are focusing more on screens, books, and other short visions tasks

    Focusing on providing safe outdoor spaces for everyone has never been more important

  • What do people today act like is new, when it's already have been a thing or already been around?
  • To be fair, there are a lot more $5 games nowadays that provide hours of good quality content.

    There were plenty older games that charged full price and are shit aswell. And there was less selection..

  • Around 920,000 shelter animals are euthanized annually in the United States, with 390,000 of those being dogs
  • Even just visiting helps!
    Exactly, they need the socialization and you get to give some free pets - win win for everyone!

  • We still have so much to discover
  • Oh my gosh I love this one

  • Blind and deaf dog Teddy got lost in a neighbor’s yard. Police called to help him shot him dead
  • "Police body cam footage showed an officer chasing Teddy (pictured) around a large field and making several unsuccessful attempts to catch him before shooting the dog dead"

    Whaaaaat?????!!!

  • TNG v DS9
  • I highly reccomend DS9 and Voyager (in that order) if you did like TOS

    DS9 is much better since it follows a continuing plot instead of TOS which is more of a "monster of the week" format

  • Can anyone recommend a lightweight, stable distro for a thinkpad?
  • I agree with other users recommending Mint

  • 'Boiling not warming': Marine life suffers as Thai sea temperatures hit record
  • To put it in perspective a 1f change in water temperature is like a 1f degree change in our bodies. A fever for a short time, no big deal. Too long and you die

    These creatures use the ocean to regulate their temperature. It needs to stay consistent for them like how we have a stable 98.6f
