    >>What was the last major war?

    The civil war with the chri-doms, christian dominionists. Started with Roe V. Wade and went on from there, their losses in Evolution trials only made it worse, eventually the largest religiopolitical organizations formed a politial party and fielded a candidate formally rather than simply funding one. When he lost, as if they were expecting it, they put feet on the street. There were riots if you could call them that, only organized; Chri-dom political soldiers, volunteers in uniform torching museums, schools, government buildings, strip clubs, porn shops and of course abortion clinics. It was smaller scale than it sounds, at the peak of the 'war' there was mass riots in 38 major cities and many hundreds of smaller towns. The war lasted less than a year, the national guard taking care of most of it. What we discovered after the fact was that, believing they were sure to win, they had incinerated prisoners in backyard brick ovens, in smelting plants, even on bonfires. The leadership insomuch as you could call it that had even prepared a revised historical account and victory speeches. Needless to say they never got to make use of them. It might make you laugh to know that this put and end to "god winning", instead people compare their adversaries to chri-doms now.

    Not much, we just don't use that word. Also most cohabs are actually old buildings not meant for the purpose, former skyscrapers and large malls, stuff like that. The only dedicated structures built from the ground up to be cohabs are the ones that need to be because they're built on cheap desert land.

    >>How many Dragon Quest/Final Fantasies will there be?

    The final few dragon quests were episodic handheld titles. There are regular new online Final Fantasy games however.

    >>Is EA still not learning from their old DRM mistakes? Are they still making sports games?

    EA still exists although a merger changed their name and no, nothing NEEDS drm as most of us can cover minor entertainment purchases with our stipend. There's little reason to buy anything when you can easily afford it even without working.

    Some interesting differences I thought of:

    ~We get stuff in tubes. Lol, I know how people used to think we'd TRAVEL in them, but the deal is that many of the first cohabs were simply repurposed business skyscrapers that had air pressure capsule delivery systems for paperwork. These became really popular among residents because those living within two or three floors of grocery stores or restaurants could have minor orders sent to them. As even the purpose built desert cohabs are enclosed structures it's a matter of course to build a pressure delivery system into them along with power, water, and so on.

    ~We get around using PRT which is like a single section of a train but for maybe 4 to 8 people, and it travels anyplace in the cohab. Specialized elevators just for PRTs carry them between floors.

    ~Since the corp that finances a cohab owns all the businesses inside we benefit greatly from standardization. All the devices use the same media, the same electrical standards, and what might interest you is that our food is packaged in a standardize box. This is because every apartment contains a vendor, which is like a computer plus a freezer plus a microwave. When you buy your meals they come in one of three box sizes which have their own slots in the freezer. Wireless ID tags denote the contents and nutritional value of each. The computer keeps track of your weight and nutritional needs and recommends meals each day based on your ideal BMI. Then it dispenses one internally and automatically microwaves it for you. Apparently they had microwave meals at the turn of the century but yours were shitty enough that people wouldn't prefer them. These days they comrpise most of my diet although I also eat out alot and gets snacks via tube from the grocer.

    No no we can still buy ingredients, but cooking is something more like a hobby that you learn how to do as an art instead of something you have to do. I wish I could tell you people aren't that lazy but even I kinda wonder why you put up with having to labor nearly all the time just to survive. I cook, btw, learned in a series of really good sims and I make a fantastic tapenade.

    >>Do forests still exist at all? Or is it just barren desert land...

    No no plenty of forests, even in regions too hot for humans. The fact that most of us have to live in cohabs is probably a huge boon to nature. Plus the gradual reforestation provides lots of places for outings if you can afford it, although you have to wear a coldsuit. (It's like a jacket and pants with plastic tubing running all around the arms, legs and torso. You carry a small backpack or purse with a refridgeration unit and pump that cool and circulates the water. Makes it tiring to hike, but it beats being one of those slobs who has never seen the sun.)

    >>You said in the last thread that there were ethical delemmas in cybernetic implants, how so and what kind?

    Someone else said that, and I replied that prosthetics are really only used by the disabled and fetishists who want as many as possible. They're quite good quality, sensation of heat cold and pressure even, but most prefer to have a replacement grown and surgically attached. Why have a metal arm when you can have a real one?

    Oh another thing, like I mentioned big bad scary eugenics made a comeback in the form of reprogenetics, which is an umbrella term that covers abortion, prenatal screening, sperm donation, and more recently genetic correction. It was THE big issue when my parents were in college. I'm actually prt of the second generation born using reprogenetics. The only edit in my case were corrections for hereditary heart disease, although the second gen typically has lots more edits including enhancement of intelligence. I know a few, they don't seem that different to me, although it's kind of hard to evaluate the intelligence of a nine year old.

    Sort of I guess. There are people who get as many implants as possible. I only have one, it's this thin film screen under the skin of my left forearm. When I get a call it lights up and I can see a screen through my skin. Pretty much just a cell phone implant but I like not having to carry one on me. Other implants don't really make one significantly "better" they are just implant versions of existing consumer electronics, like implant headphones that virbate your skull or replacement lenses for your eyes with AR displays in them, stuff like that. We do make use of reprogenetics though.

    Yeah but there is cold sleep, that works well enough. They replace your blood with a frigid saline diluted agent that slows metabolism to a near standstill. It's oxygenated and contains enough protein that, given the extremely slow rate of circulation (your heart beats once every fifteen hours) it's enough to keep your hibernating body alive for roughly a decade. The downside is that once the provisions in the fluid run out you have to be woken up, eat, take a shit and generally clear the built up cellular waste out of your system before they put in fresh blood replacement with all the necessary crap it in. I dunno how many ten year sleeps a person could survive but my grandpa is on year 6 right now. I know he's not dead but somehow it feels that way. :-\

    >>What about a brain-computer interface? Can you play games in cyberspace?

    Sorta, there isn't any one "syberspace" but most of the corps have their own sims. You can use any panel display (like a sheet of smoked glass but when turned on it's a 3D display, like looking through a window) or a headset of any sort. Some look like sunglasses, some like thin film wrapped in front of the eyes, depends who makes it. The controls are either gestural or based on a sort of EERG reading of the brainwaves. It's two way so you can physically experience sensation, even taste stuff.

    The newest Mario is handheld only, the last one for panel or headset was Cloud Mario. The one you'll get next is one of the best ever imo, feels similar to Galaxy but not set in space.

    >>Same for Sony and Microsoft, how are they doing? Any new consoles or major console selling games?

    No consoles, but rather panels all come with one of three competing chipsets and some of the downloadable games, which you buy by subscription to the developer's service (along the lines of Steam) are indeed still made by Nintendo although neither Sony nor Microsoft are still in the games business, they make panels and panel chipsets, and Microsoft but not Sony makes a decent headset.

    I dunno, I haven't gone through time. There are a few ISPs that offer entanglement posting, it involves sending one of two entangled particles through a tiny black hole, and altering the spin of one by fucking with the other. Do this a billion fucking times a second and you have decent bandwidth, and the means by which to insert packets into existing data transfer grids. Costs $1097 a month and ISP employees only offer you a small selections of sites you can post on, although you can read almost anything.

    No, trust me. After the positive feedback they got for the little nods to SMB3 in Galaxy, Galaxy 2 is practically a 3D remake of Mario 3 plus world. Nerds bash it as a cash in on nostalgia but it's fucking delightful to play and the OST is still in my playlist.

    No, they don't stop after Wii/360/PS3. They don't stop for 6 more generations.

    Nah, instead of consoles games are made for the proprietary chipsets in display panels, like TVs sorta but 3D, they look like a pane of dark glass, and they all have powerful chipsets built in.

    How exactly does your "time-travel" function? Is it really like a multiverse, like each instance or event in time, each possible future or event that could have occured is happening at the same moment? Or something more similar to (forgive me) Dragonball Z's badly described time-travel, with paralleling timelines?

    I just thought that the idea of a multiverse is more plausible than what you're doing in the past just "not catching up" to you now, at least by our current knowledge.

    Fuck if I know, although one of the most notorious atrocities of the second civil war was the use of a parasite engineered to remove inhibition and empathy, keep you constantly hungry and aggressive and essentially drive you to attack anyone not infected. It was released in limited quantity in Boston, Chicago, Dallas and a few other big cities but proved pretty much ineffective. A revised version that left the infected more cogent was released but those infected almost all committed suicide. A certain popular genre of horror movie is, needless to say, no longer considered popular but instead offensive and tasteless.

    This is a good thread.

    You recently mentioned that implants, both cybernetic and organic, are in fairly widespread use. You also mentioned "fetishists" that get as many of these as possible.

    Do you mean to imply that there are, essentially, cybernetic mutants with, for example, multiple hearts? Or have you not quite gotten there?

    Also, has any contact with other races, whether they be from outer or from inner space, been achieved?

    Yeah well most of the apartments have the same hardware that was built into them when the cohab they are part of was built. They take up roughly a wall and for those lucky (rich) enough to live near the outisde and thus have a window apartment, the screen IS the window and becomes opaque when necessary.

    That said headsets have slowly been taking over for the past ten years. The most recent optics from Microsoft have UHD definition and the microdisplays are positions on motor pivots so as to track the eye and minimize nausea. They are clunkier than the Apple ones but they have way better specs. But then I have a pair so I'm probably biased.

    That said, they weren't zombies, and nobody thinks of them that way. They were poor, sick frightened people whom we had to kill, and live with the knowledge that under different circumstances we might've been able to cure them.

    Well yeah, since everyone can easily afford it on their stipend alone.

    >>What about pirating?

    Few need to. Again, even the basic stipend package is enough for groceries, internet, electricity, water and entertainment.

    >>Do people run modified OS's for their prosthetics?

    Not that I know of?

    >>You mentioned that you have a cellphone in your arm. Do you have to upgrade it or has mobile technology reached its technological end of the road?

    The flat display film is just that, a touch sensitive display. The actual hardware that I'd need to swap out for an upgrade is roughly the size of a fingernail and there's a faint tattoo over it so that the surg knows where to cut. It takes all of five minutes under local anaesthetic, and I only have to do it every five years or so if I were obsessive about staying up to date. This is why most people settle for basic implants with limited functionality that will age well.

    >>The way you describe things, technology/science seems to be progressing slower than usual. What was the most recent major technological/scientific advancement. AI? Cloning?

    You're right, mostly since nobody needs to work for a living strictly speaking. The various corps fund most major research and it's whatever they figure is important. Shareholders have a reasonable deal of influence over the direction that research takes, though.

    One more question: You said that robots do most of the hard labor. Did people riot when robots took their jobs? Right now Americans aren't too happy with Mexicans "taking their jobs" so I would assume that the rednecks of the future would be angry about robots taking their jobs.

    AI is passable and reliable, but most robots of the sort you're imagining (like Dell's MyGirlfriend series) actually have organic brains, grown around dense lattices of electrodes rather than having them implanted after it's grown. They are so intimately merged with the interface that they can see, hear, touch, taste, feel....for the first few months of life they are plugged into sims that train them to obediently carry out whatever useful tasks they are advertised as being capable of, the way one might train an animal. When they're ready, they are plugged into their bodies and shipped to retailers. The only bots that use hard AI are the automated laborers.

    Well we don't have nanomachines, but macromachines turned out to be quite useful in their own regard. Swarms of robots ranging from the size of a grain of rice to the size of a mouse serve all sorts of purposes, from polishing and repairing the cohab exterior to cleaning floors and such. There are almost certainly more small robots than people in my cohab. Little creepy when you think about it but you rarely see one, no worse than roaches must've been.

    Perhaps I seem less free from your perspective, but imagine how brutal it seems to me that you have to labor literally in order to *survive*. Plus the stipends aren't equal, as I said they depend in large part upon how many shares you own of the corp that owns your cohab. All they really entitle you to is a greater proportion of the fruits of automated labor.

    So how does one go about obtaining these shares in stock? Simply buying them from others? It seems to me like you're all buying shares of stock, despite there being little in the way of a market. And since, more or less, all the businesses are are established, the distribution of wealth is more or less set in stone.

    Not really. The currently popular genres of music are opera (no not that kind of opera, it's called the same thing but is something altogether different) historical rock, outsider (by those from outside the cohabs, similar to country) empathetic, and viewpoint.

    >>So how does one go about obtaining these shares in stock? Simply buying them from others? It seems to me like you're all buying shares of stock, despite there being little in the way of a market.

    The "money" you get as part of your stipend is more like in store credit in the sense that it's only good with the corp that owns the cohab and only for goods and services within the cohab. You can buy shares with proper dollars by working for the corp. Basically you can live comfortably doing jack shit, but the more you work the more shares you can buy, which gradually increases your stipend, reducing the impact that the overhead costs of living has on your disposable income.

    >>And since, more or less, all the businesses are are established, the distribution of wealth is more or less set in stone.

    Fraid so. You can run a business in the cohab but you're still basically working for the corp since all the payment is in credit.

    >>Or do people still have businesses and the like, but only as a hobby, and not as a necessity?

    Yeah, plenty of people. Mostly creative stuff like cooking, selling artwork, and those so inclined can do independent research although if you're any good you're likely to get an offer you can't refuse to come work for the bluesky research divisions which of course are owned by the corp.

    You do however have the freedom to choose which cohab to live in, under any number of different corps. The laws differ, though the distribution models are all roughly the same.

    Basically although Historical rock actually takes from all forms of rock for the past 100 years or so, and while empathetic is similar to emo, viewpoint is actually the attempt to write music which is independent of cultural conventions. It's fucking horrible to listen to. Imagine the sound of bears fucking while a five year old screeches and bangs cheese graters together. Pretentious bullshit imo.
