>>6193 >>11554 >>6154 >>6153 Canonically it is possible. A talented engineer/programmer can configure a transporter to change people/beings into alternate forms. What a genius prank to turn everyone who comes through the transporter into a catgirl. I'm wondering how many people would be happy to remain in that form. There's a LOT of "transporter lore" across all of the franchise, including the movies, that just makes the tech God Magic. TNG did a lot of stuff with the transporter that should have changed society. Take Rascals. Shitty episode, except for that part where Keiko tells O'Brien she still expects him to rail her, even if she's a child. But by the end they all change back. I can sort of get that if you're as young as Ro, but Picard? Why the fuck would Picard go back to his original age if he could just get an extra lifetime's worth of time? They didn't lose mental faculties, and the only problem was physical. But this is the Federation. People will still respect you if you have the body of a child. One character has this dumb line of "maybe you can go back to the Academy". Why? That wouldn't happen. He'd stay Captain. All they needed to do was add one line with "oh, and this will kill you". It's notably strange that they never added some throw-away lines like they did for other possible plotholes/OP abilities. >we can only do this once >we need the energy of a supernova for this >using this practically would be dangerous Another TNG episode where some of the crew is infected with an aggressive virus that ages them ... then they filter their DNA with a sample of pre-infection and return everyone to the age of the DNA sample. Immortality machine right there. Keep some DNA in stasis from your childhood and return to the age of 7 or 12 or 15 anytime you want, all knowledge and memories intact from when you were 110 or something. And unlike modern genetic engineering which is unreliable and with side-effects, there are no medical reasons to not do this. In fact, that episode alone tells you that you can take any DNA sample, genetically engineer it, then run yourself through the transporter with that as a filter and you come out the other side ... in any form the DNA wants you to. Augmented, remove all aging, remove all disease, correct all radiation damage, remove & correct all genetic defects, etc. For Example: Imagine you are Guinan (or anyone of her race). You are returned to the age of 10 or 13 after being 400 years old, all memories intact. You get to start life over again with a life expectancy of 500 or 600 years, near infinitely. The Federation would WANT to use the tech this way. You can indefinitely preserve all that experience and training, completely revitalize your aging officers and research scientists for another 100 years at every go. Want/Need a clone of yourself? Trivial to split yourself at any age into two or a dozen yourselves. Why not 1000? Instant fleet of soldiers, starship captains, doctors, catgirls, whatever you need.

>>14808 Yeah they really need a line somewhere in one of the main shows like "we can do bullshit with the transporter all we want but you're going to get time cancer or turn into an irradiated blob after a while due to genetic damange" but put in a more star trek way, as it is now the Transporter basically just breaks absolutely everything when you start to think about it, every faction with it should just be able to shit out armies of perfect soldiers/scientists/administrators in an afternoon or use it to directly download decades of experience on any given topic or in any area into people's heads using it, given that they're able to perfectly reassmble people, memories and all, there's no reason they couldn't just take a copy of say, Picard's brainwaves from the buffer, decompile them, and make Goodatcommand.zip to shove into every cadets head from that point onward for example

/SSA/ - Social Skills Advice Anonymous Comrade 03/23/2020 (Mon) 18:15:39 No. 7305 [Reply] [Last]
Perhaps it has become your goal to be more charismatic, uninhibited and sociable. Let's have a thread where we ask questions and give advice to improve exactly that.

I'm getting an ASD screen arranged when I can, I'm tired of being on my own and not knowing why I can't understand all these things everyone else seems to instinctively get, my social skills are terrible, my only friends are my step sister and my comrades in my group and I don't understand how I even got them to be friends with me, I'm glad for them, but they're mostly older than I am and we don't have a huge amount in common other than politics At least if I go and get told yes or no I can re-evalute, I think I have aspergers tbh, I have a lot of the traits and people that I trust have mentioned me being very very reserved and like a blank slate, i.e. unreadable in the past, I know for a fact that people find me super blunt because I get told so everytime I start a new job or interact with a new group, fit the solo sports and co-ordination, not liking certain stimulae as well as other criteria like the inability to express emotional thoughts clearly and terrible hand writing etc. I wonder if there are any groups in my area for high functioning spergs actually, one of those could be nice, go and interact with my fellow people of logic
>>14770 >You need to practice socializing before it becomes easier. But how am I supposed to do that when every single attempt at that goes so bad? This past event has especially made me so anxiety ridden I can barely feel like functioning in public places anymore.
>>14769 Context?
>>14773 can you volunteer somewhere? don't try to get people to like you. just be nice, that goes a huge way. you don't even have to talk much. avoid making too much eye contact. DON'T FLIRT what happened this last time? Maybe we could figure out something you should avoid in the future.
>>14781 >>14782 I tried to interact with a group of people in a club, I think they were strangers to each others too but for some reason they did not like my presence, I don't know why. One of them moved away initially after I greeted them and then another woman just straight up called me a "creep". And no, I didn't stare at their face, I don't understand. Maybe it's my voice? The way I talk? Or the face? The dress code?

Are the aliens already on Earth? Anonymous Comrade 08/11/2020 (Tue) 01:31:46 No. 14783 [Reply] [Last]
So Jamie Peck recently joked that aliens are watching us and they were going to give us space communism, but then they decided we weren't ready. Because we can't even overcome racism within our own species. Do you think aliens are among us?
There are no aliens. All UFO sightings are bullshit. Even if aliens existed it would take eons for us to visit Earth.
so the aliens are intersectional?
The aliens that are all peace and love and are like "We come in peace plz stop fighting yourselves so you can join the intergalactic federation :)" Or whatever are almost always described as being Nordics and / or Pleiadeans. Grey's are the ones that want to shove probes up your ass and Reptiles are just assholes that literally feed off of your bad vibes and vices
>>14788 honestly the reptilians seem the kindest ones

How fit is 4chan's /fit/ board? As in is it useful or not?
>>14800 it is a mix of useful and insane, like most of 4chan. I think /fit/ is good because it gives you unreasonable standards, if you do not have a shitty mindset you will want to achieve it even if it is unachievable or really far in the future. This unreasonable standard drove me to be able to deadlift 200kg and lift 90kg over my head.
>>14800 also like 90% of this thread is unhelpful meme exercises that don't achieve anything, /fit/ is x10 times more useful.

Is Steven Universe liberal? I think it is because it propagates the notion that you can solve issues in society by talk no jutsu.

I found this pro-US army site called Wearethemighty and holy fuck is it a bucket of laughs. The Sukhoi Su-25 is now apparently a copy of the Northrop A-9 and therefore loses to the A-10 warthog because it carries less weapons. (despite not presenting any feats on the Su-25 and some vague shit on the A-10) https://www.wearethemighty.com/articles/the-battle-of-the-tank-busters-frogfoot-versus-warthog The idea that the Su-25 is a YA-9 ripoff is hilarious considering how they are only superficially similar. The Su-25 was the winner of a competition between Illyushin and Sukhoi based on their experience with the soviet pioneered shturmovik concept. https://foxtrotalpha.jalopnik.com/meet-the-ilyushin-il-102-the-most-gorgeously-ugly-comb-1601030964 The 2 aircraft are honestly incomparable to one another: https://battle-machines.org/2015/07/26/a-10-thunderbolt-ii-vs-su-25-frogfoot/
Anyone have the info on how the Greeks constantly shoot-down Turkish military planes that invade their airspace? At least some of the kills were with Soviet tech or older American tech vs the new F-16s of the Truks.
