One of the few things I actually look forward to is the medical possibilities for body modification.

You think mangling your ears into a little point is cool? Wait til they can construct a bio-mass lattice to grow you a set of long, true elf ears that can wiggle and droop, just like your japanese cartoons.

Hell, if 4chan is around by the time it happens, I eagerly await the threads where someone starts talking about their body mods and the richfags start going

Body image issues are one of the biggest dilemmas for people who don't have any other pressing issues in their life. For some, body image is the only issue in their lives, and they believe that by fixing it, they are fixing their lives.

There's a common cliche amongst the transgender community that life gets infinitely better after transition, but so many people fail to attribute that to them just simply getting their lives in order. They start eating healthy, taking care of their bodies, making new friends, buying nicer things for themselves that make them feel more attractive and pretty, and all of the sudden, they are happy, brand new people.

Majority of people I've met with body issues have a ton of other issues too. They just find that their body is the easiest thing to change and one of the few things that they feel they have proper control of.

I'm too fat, I must be a beautiful skeleton is something I've found to generally equate to "I've had major sexual trauma in the past" not I'm content and bored.

The obligatory response from anyone who encounters a behavior they don't agree with that supposedly makes the person committing the behavior happy, is that they aren't "truly" happy, and that deep down they need some sort of therapy or friends and family to help them move past their mental block, at which point they can become nice normal people who ascribe to the values and behaviors of whomever is disparaging the deviant behavior.

Case in point: The Mexican Devil Woman.
Used to be a lawyer, Mother of two (I think), divorced and remarried, and extreme body-mod enthusiast. After getting out of a terribly abusive relationship, she started getting tattooed, quit her job, started getting piercings, sub-dermal implants, dental work, and all sorts of other shit all over her body.

This is a woman who tries to keep herself from getting her buy covering herself in spines and horns and cryptic imagery. She's not just someone who believes people can look more unique and different without being ugly or strange. She's a battered house-wife who buried herself and her trauma under thousands of dollars of frivolous modifications.

Now, this is not the case for all body mod types, but nearly anyone who takes it to the extremes of this woman or something like this guy >>22393877 is battling with something and tattoos and surgery are their weapons.

We, as a species, have to untangle our collective neuroses before we can advance.

Too splintered, too angry, too crazy to go to space. We can barely handle people being a different color than us, let alone co-existing on a chunk of metal hurling through space at thousands of miles per hour.

Once we can sort ourselves out a bit, then we can worry about space travel. We need to be safe, secure, happy, healthy, and sane on Earth before we ever worry about going to space.

it'll probably start out as minor modifications, with elf ears and the like. It'll be like getting a tattoo: unusual, but not too frowned upon (good luck getting some jobs, though).

But then you know what's gonna happen: the furries will hear they can have actual fur.

That's going to go one of two ways: either the marketers who have so much control over public reception nowadays are going to decide that this expensive modification should become a popular one, and it becomes accepted in society. Just a couple of cute catgirl celebrities might be all it takes.

Either that, or a public backlash, and fursecution becomes a real thing.

Personally, I'd like to either be a cute elf boy, or go full fantast alien.

I always thought the reason no one made any bomb bigger than the Tzar bomb was because they were actually worried about cracking the planet.

You know that fusion weapons are infinitely scaleable?

The soviet Tsar Bomba was set for 100 megatons, eploded with about half of it and was exandable to about 250.

The only reason they didnt use it because the independet warheads of a MIRV can do more damage than a single big bomb especially when their shockwaves collide.

No. That was back before really good guided missiles existed and bombs were hard to accurately aim. Thus, they made them as big as possible so even if they missed hitting the target dead on (Hiroshima had that happen), it would still take it out.
Once ICBMs were produced, you didn't need 25+ megaton bombs anymore, since you could aim more directly at the military target.

Not really, what he said before was true. The Dickwaving was impractical and silly, it didn't really "frighten" anyone.

To unabashedly steal from Wikipedia as to the reason bombs shrunk:

The Tsar Bomba was the culmination of a series of high-yield thermonuclear weapons designed by the Soviet Union and the United States during the 1950s (examples include the Mark-17 and B41). Such bombs were designed because:

The nuclear bombs of the day were large and heavy, regardless of yield, and could only be delivered by strategic bombers. Hence yield was subject to dramatic economies of scale;
It was feared that many bombers would fail to reach their targets because their size and low speed made detection and interception easy. Hence maximizing the firepower carried by any single bomber was considered vital;
Before satellite intelligence each side lacked precise knowledge of the location of the other's military and industrial facilities;
A bomb dropped without benefit of advanced inertial navigation systems could easily miss its intended target. Parachute retardation would only worsen the bomb's accuracy.

Thus certain bombs were designed to destroy an entire large city even if dropped five to ten kilometers from its center. This objective meant that yield and effectiveness were positively correlated, at least up to a point. However, the advent of ICBMs accurate to 500 meters or better made such a design philosophically obsolete. Subsequent nuclear weapon design in the 1960s and 1970s focused primarily on increased accuracy, miniaturization, and safety. The standard practice for many years has been to employ multiple smaller warheads (MIRVs) to "carpet" an area, resulting in greater ground damage.
