Seekers of asylum

Screw titles.

Anyway, this.

Now that you’ve read that I’d just like to ask why they are being turned back. I mean, seriously. What conceivable reason do they have for sending them back after all the suffering they’ve been through to escape in the first place. Asylum seekers not even illegal. There is a law stating, ‘Everyone has the right to seek and to enjoy in other countries asylum from persecution.’ They say it’s to protect our borders, but from what? Terrorists? Virtually none of the refugees are terrorists, and I mean none.

In any case, I might come back to the subject with a later news article so I can rage about it a bit more, but this is enough for tonight.

Later!

Is in vitro meat really what we’ve been waiting for?

Yes.

Yes it is.

However, this person would beg to differ. She raises some pretty good points I suppose, and i’m no scientist, but I think with enough research we can make in vitro meat a viable  alternative to real meat. All we need is cheaper technologies and renewable nutrients. Besides, based on the last paragraph, I have a feeling the writer wasn’t entirely unbiased. She seemed to have an aversion to meat and was overly concerned about the environmental problems caused by it.

Homestuck: The Adventure Game

(Hey! Why’s this one a link?)

HELL YES! Does this even count as a news story? Whatever, I don’t care because this is the best thing ever! Now, you may be asking ‘What is Homestuck?’ Excellent question. Unfortunately, it is not easy to answer. It’s a…thing, that’s like a game, but isn’t actually a game, except for the times when it is. Maybe it’ll just be easier to take a look for yourself.

Anyway, back to the kickstarter. The trailer on the site doesn’t show any footage of the game, instead, it just shows parts of some of the flash animations from throughout the story. However, the basic premise of the story should be easy to transplant into a brilliant game, and if anyone can pull it off, Andrew Hussie can.

Well, I’ll be back next time wih some more serious issues.

Until then, Au Revoir.

Immortality

Is that a link? Can you just click on it and go to the page? In any case you can always just copy and paste.

All right, so there are so many things wrong with immortality, aren’t there? Well, I’m sure it wouldn’t be entirely pleasant spending forever as a robot. Not being able to sense the same as a normal human would suck, and we wouldn’t look human either. We would probably be unrecognizable from the other robo people. Besides, I’m sure most of us don’t plan on lasting forever anyway.

Unfortunately, while I’m sure a lot of us don’t want to be a robot until the end of time, what happens when we get old, or come down with a terminal illness. We’re probably going to want to hang on for ‘just a little longer’, and before long we’re all immortal despite what we said when we were younger. The only way this isn’t going to happen is if this technology doesn’t develop beyond the experimental state.
