    Yes, to the point that one can zoom in on individual atoms. Of course they're not all kept in memory at once, it's a function of Level of Detail, and it's also used to simulate chemical reactions. Game physics has come to mean more than it used to, sufficed to say.

    Hahaha, saw this coming. Surprisingly good but not worth the wait. The aesthetic is vaguely cartoonish (bright colors, subtle stylization) and still looks fairly good for a handheld title.

    For the most part game companies have subdivided into dozens of smaller teams. You buy a subscription from the company and get access to their new games as they come out, at the rate of one every two or three months. Mind you algorythmic content generation tools have gotten good enough that much of the game makes itself; for instance anything taking place on Earth can simply make use of standardized code for generation grass, trees, terrain and so forth. It would make no sense to have a variety of engines or assets anymore, and as such a unified realism assets package (having descended from Renderware as I understand it) emerged a few decades ago. Games look pretty much the same now, providing they aim for realism.

    Sort of. There's no such thing as a console as there's no longer any such thing as television. It would be more accurate to say that modern autostereo panels contain two or three different chipsets and that games are tailored to these chipsets. Microsoft is no longer in games, neither is Sony. Nintendo is still producing game software, though for the chipsets that come embedded in display panels.

    Sony sticks it out to the end and there will be a PS4, but I wouldn't get too attached to their games department. Still, there is one shocking gem in particular that will define the console and come out in the middle of its last year of life.

    Wii has most of the best games by virtue of sheer number of titles. However it's notorious to game nerds as having been the definitive shovelware console.

    360 evens out with Wii, having fewer titles overall ut a comparable number of high-scoring gems.

    As for which I dig out when I feel like going through the headache of connecting it to my panel? PS3. I'm sort of fetishinstically interested in the underdog.

    Posting on solarnet. Same tech that lets us view shit hosted on luna and mars with no delay turned out to let us post across time. There are a few ISPs that offer the service, inserting packets into the older grid through a technology I'm not gonna pretend to understand. Something to do with entanglement, then sending the entangled particle through a tiny black hole and keeping one for yourself. Anyways it's $1097 a month and there are ISP agents who monitor your posting, but for history nerds it's worth it.

    Sorry, the typos may be partially my fault but it's pretty well known that entanglement posting is lossy and the message is sometimes incomplete or slightly corrupted. Let me know as I can't see it from my end, the ISP agents post my messages and fetch replies. It's how they censor stuff that we're not allowed to post.

    Sort of. Most of the big name titles with high production values are playable only if you can afford a good headset. The cheaper titles for the most part work on either that or a regular panel.

I'm in the middle of the fucking Nevada desert so I can't go outside or anything, and I've already been to all the shit in the entertainment pavilion.

    >>America turns out ok, right?

    Yeah, there's a civil war on the way though. You know the laugh you all must've had at focus on the family, the defense at the dover trial, the whole anti abortion movement? You won't be laughing, trust me. Then again you'll be like 80 by the time the chri-doms work up the guts to put feet in the street so you don't have to worry about it.

    >>Actually, the World turns out ok, right?

    Yeah more or less. Most people moved out of the suburbs and now live either in sheltered cities or cohabs built on cheap desert land. Like a giant building that has residential, commercial and educational zones. About half the power comes from wind turbines and solar, rest is from geothermal and nuclear. If you haven't guessed already it's literally too hot to be outside for more than an hour or two without having a heat stroke.

    >>No alien invasions, no martial law, no famine or epidemic?

    Civil war, global warming (very little flooding it turns out but get used to the idea of your kids never going outside except on vacations in the north) and the typical economic cycle playing out more or less as expected with a few hiccups, one of which you're on the cusp of as we speak. Don't worry, the sky won't fall, conditions never even approach those of the great depression.

    Oh, most of us either don't work or work voluntarily. That's been the biggest change. I guess I take it for granted so it slipped my mind. Ask me about it if you care.

    There are still Mario games, yeah. I've been to the Nintendo park but not the resort, although I had my cousin bring back some of the star coin tokens you use in the AR rides. I keep em stacked on my desk.

    >>Do you have robot slaves?

    Hah, finally someone asked. Sort of but I only own part of them. The deal is that Yum, AOL-Disney-Time Warner and the other corps bought up the companies with the most promising robotics tech once they started producing bots competent enough for menial labor.

    Now, most big cohabs have a seperate population of robot laborers a few kilometers away. They work in factories, mines, farms, all on an enclosed compound. Anyone who lives in the cohab owns a share of their output in the form of a monthly stipend. The more shares of the company you own the more your stipend grows (stipends can be used to buy any of the goods sold in the cohab but it's not "real money". You can only buy shares with proper dollars, and for that you need to get a job in management.) Anyway most people are lazy and just live off their stipends. Mine's enough for groceries and rent and such although I do want a job with Yum when I graduate so I can live a little better.

    There won't be ten more systems, there will be 6, past which most move to development for panel chipsets. Oh, and the system after the next one is going to be headset and 3d-display panel compatible. No joke.

    Apple, Microsoft and Dell make decent girlfriends although it's not like you can't tell they aren't human. They're soft, warm and just barely competent enough that guests will give you the benefit of the doubt on 'her' humanity when they're over. Look too closely and you can see the moulding seams and the total lack of peach fuzz though, ruins it.

    Yeah, people with no ambition who live on the minimum stipend. There's horomonal treatments you can buy that will let you eat whatever you want and never shift from your ideal BMI but again that costs more money than the minimum stipend provides.

    Look the future isn't all that different; There's cooler shit but it's only available if you can afford it. The only earth shattering difference is automated labor and the resulting stipend system, meaning you don't HAVE to work to survive. But most want to do better than just survive so they work. I know my stipend is actually only a fraction of what I make on the job.

    There was a scientific case a few decades ago of someone who mechanically grafted enough robotic parts onto his body that he was essentially able to survive without eating.

    His organic parts provided energy for his mechanical side and his mechanical side provided the necessary mass for the organic components, or something like that.

    It was too expensive to research further. Ethical dilemmas as well.

    >>in the future do they have pills that really do make your penis bigger?

    There are horomonal treatments you can get that will do just about whatever you want to your body, yes.

    >>can people fly?

    I own a microlite, yes, but I rarely fly it anymore.

    >>are there still diseases?

    Yes.

    >>do humans have an age limit or can we live forever?

    Average lifespan is 110 for insiders, outsiders (anyone outside a cohab) have it rougher. As for life extension there are a number of options but the most popular is cold sleep. It's NOT FREEZING. Man why did anyone ever think you could survive that? Alcor got sued out the ass when they were caught dumping the frozen bodies...cold sleep is like hibernation except a frigid saline diluted solution slows cellular metabolism so much that you're barely alive, you require nearly no oxygen or nutrition and you age very very slowly. A ten year sleep costs nearly $100,000 correcting for inflation (might be wrong on the difference, sorry)

    >>does anyone have psychic abilities?

    No. That shit is mostly a punchline now.

    >>can information be downloaded into your brain?

    No. Still a field of research though.

    >>are we mixed with computers or machines at all?

    I dunno, prosthetics are pretty good. Directly responsive to nervous impulse, you can feel heat cold and subtle pressure through the fingers. The only people who get them are the disabled and fetishists though. There was a guy in the food plaza yesterday with both arms and legs done and when he caught me taking pics he told me his heart and lungs were artificial too. Why anyone would choose that is beyond me.

    >>Since all of the vidya related questions worth asking have been asked, what about them genetics? Any riots broken out over people buying genetically different and superior babies?

    Haha what no, is that an issue in 2008? Reprogenetics is pretty much a normal part of medicine now. I know a ton of people got upset about how close it was to eugenics, my grandpa was in college at the time, he actually protested it. He's softened up since then because without reprogenetics I'd probably be dead from heart disease by 30, knowing the genomic history of my family.

    >>Do furfags get to fufill their fantasies?

    No. Genetic engineering progresses more slowly than expected. We can do a great deal, just not quite along those lines.

    >>Are we building a space empire?

    Sorta. If by space empire you mean government habs on the moon and mars plus a scattering of commercial resorts, mostly owned by Virgin-Bigelow, then yes. Luna is the big resort destination, there are inflatable dome pool decks where if you're skinny you can FLY AROUND using rented plastic wings, icarus style. It's the sort of thing I might be able to afford once in my life, now's not the time. Luna has four cohabs like on Earth that regular people (not tourists or scientists) can live in, Mars has just one. We haven't gona anywhere outside the solar system yet although the current space program project is a nuclear pulse rocket carrying cold sleeping astronauts to Alpha Centauri. We've already sent a probe there via nuclear pulse but it will be 120 years before it gets back. Mostly Virgin-Bigelow just wants to make a point by getting its employees there and back before anyone else.

    Nah, population's too big. There are still populations of identifable ancestry and as I said above there are new racial groups, mostly religious compounds that convinced everyone to have the same reprogenetic changes made over and over.

    Shortly after 2050, when the big rush to add commercial resorts to the existing NASA moon outpost began. When Virgin and Bigelow announce their merger, you'll know shit's about to go down.

    >>How are handhelds in the future?

    Thin, strong, and the screens are all autostereo. You can look at the graphics from different angles and the view changes like you're looking through a window. That's the biggest difference, although the newest generation of handhelds are basically just built into slimline see-through AR headsets. Some look like sunglasses, others like a thin band of film that wraps around your eyes. It's a good thing nobody drives.

    I dunno, for the most part anyone sincerely religious refuses to live in the cohabs. I've never met one so I haven't asked. Everyone in here is either not religious or quiet about it.

    There's this charity program that I donate to when I'm in the mood, where we can dedicate a percentage of our stipends to air lifting provisions to their compounds. We don't really know what they do out there or even if they eat what we give them but I can't imagine life is very good for outsiders.

    So, some vidya questions and then some general. Pick and choose:

    -Do they make Megaman 10? Is it as good as 9?
    -How's Lego Universe turn out?
    -Sonic games - do they continue to suck?
    -Will we see a sequel to Mario Galaxy on the Wii?

    Movies:
    -Is Transformers 2 any good? What about 3, et. al.?
    -How the fuck was The Avengers movie? And who plays Thor?
    -Name your favorite movie and director, both from our time, your time, and all time.
    -Does Blu-Ray last very long, or do we switch to halodiscs soon?

    Politics:
    -Since Obama wins, how many assassination attempts?
    -Is there another terrorist attack?
    -So what happens with gay marriage?

    General:
    -Are toy stores still around?
    -Ever heard of a politician with the first name Brandon?
    -We got Gundams yet, or is that still a pipe dream?
    -Any mental disorders that are left uncurable, or can we fix all that in utero?
    -Can we choose baby genders?

    No.

    >>Will the middle east quieten the fuck up eventually?

    Oh boy....Okay, google ADS microwave gun. I would link you if I could but you know, fuckin' ISP chridoms/Nazis are like that. Anyways, imagine that any number of different kinds of high energy radio waves can be directed into wide angle beams, like spotlights, having effects such as knocking one unconscious, nausea, temporary blindness....now image mounting these dishes on UAVs and UGVs which autonomously patrol the region. There was even talk of putting one on a satellite but that got shot down (not literally, in congress) due to the space weapons treaty. Sufficed to say it's literally impossible for them to riot, burn down embassies or whatever without suddenly collapsing unconscious and not even seeing it coming. Scary stuff, and despite the paranoid naysayers it has never been used on American citizens. Keeps the region pretty stable although they bitch about how it robs them of their freedoms in UN summits. Cry me a fucking river. If we're expected to pay from our stipends to have new cohabs built in the region, we need to know they'll be safe from terrorists.

    >>Also, how's china doing.

    Pretty good. Old guard died out, although the new leadership still pays lip service to communism they're pretty much transparently a capitalist democracy. They were one of the first to invest in the share based ownership of automated labor scheme, so most Chinese live on the resulting stipends. Japan and Korea followed, then the US and Britain, then finally Australia and most of the rest of the world.

    UAVs, UGVs, UMVs and satellites. No human serves anymore. Lots of whining from allied nations but they keep buying our robots under the table so they can't be too upset with it, and it has arguably solved the middle eastern conflict thanks to the advances in nonlethal weaponry. HERFs are the favoured weapon loadout on all three platforms, such that few if any actually die from assaults.

    >>1)Will Deus Ex 3 be a successful sequel?

    Arguably. You'll probably hate it but some of the bigger game history nerds claim it's a classic. I'm ambivalent.

    >>2)Has occult studies (magick, psychokinesis, etc) ever divulged anything interesting?

    Not in the sense that any of it's true, no, but neurotheology has really taken off and we understand a great deal about what causes religious experience. Churches even got into the habit of using magnetic resonane headrests to induce visions before the chridom civil war stigmatized judeochristian probably forever.

    >>3)Has the brain become a more useful tool for the individual?

    Dunno how to answer this. In what sense? Neuroenhancement drugs are legal, pretty recently in fact. There are limited ways of mental control of computers and appliances, mostly through patches built into headsets. You can turn shit on and off, raise and lower volume, stuff like that.

    >>4)Why the hell have you not created a time-paradox?

    The disclaimer for the service says that changes made to the timeline take effect at the same speed that time itself moves. So if I make significant changes to your time, they'll never catch up with my present.

    >>Do the protestfags win over Scientology?

    Some of the history books give them credit but really that's just because they had popular support. Imho the church was going to collapse by itself anyway, although the important thing is that it did and that legislation passed forbidding anyone to use their same exploitation model in the future. It was already been used to shut down Quixtar, Eckankar and Discover. No such organizations exist anymore, although some pedants like to claim the corps are worse. To them I would say "If you hate them so much, leave the cohab". Fewer mouths for them to feed means my stipend grows. =]

    >>-Do they make Megaman 10? Is it as good as 9?

    Yes and yes, but it's not 8-bit style.

    -How's Lego Universe turn out?

    I don't remember, never played it.

    -Sonic games - do they continue to suck?

    The only good sonic games IMO were the 16 bit styled ones that Sega did trying to capitalize on the popularity of Megaman 9. Nobody told them though, so they went back to 3D shit. There were three arguably great 3D sonics, part of a side series that Sega experimented with when I was in formative ed (maybe 8 or 9?) and I remember them being the best although I haven't played them recently enough to be sure it isn't just nostalgia. There hasn't been a new Sonic game for nearly ten years though.

    >>-Will we see a sequel to Mario Galaxy on the Wii?

    Yes, and it's similar in feel but not in space.

    >>-Is Transformers 2 any good? What about 3, et. al.?

    Fantastic, and there is a second trilogy 20 years later that are one part franchise reboot and one part reimagining. The second trilogy is heavy on social commentary, mostly naysaying the transition to the autmoated labor economy, and I kinda resent that but it was a product of its time.

    >>-How the fuck was The Avengers movie? And who plays Thor?

    I dunno, never watched it. There was a good Nova movie, though. OH and they did one of the aborted Spiderman 2099 series! It was good in the way that only fans could appreciate, although for once the critics agreed.

    >>-Name your favorite movie and director, both from our time, your time, and all time.

    >>-Does Blu-Ray last very long, or do we switch to halodiscs soon?

    >>-Since Obama wins, how many assassination attempts?

    Only one, and the entire world gets butthurt over it. Guy actually hits him, but Obama survives. Don't expect sunshine and roses though, as a hardline chri-dom is elected as part of the conservative backlash against Obama's administration, and it lays the groundwork for the civil war, if you can call it that.

    >>-Is there another terrorist attack?

    Small ones, although they peter out as we start putting UGVs and UAVs with nonlethal weapons into active patrol in the middle east. They're not really relevant anymore, not with the failed chridom revolution still in living memory.

    >>-So what happens with gay marriage?

    Uh...gay people get married if they feel like it? Anything determined to be past puberty and capable of desiring human sexual advances is legal to marry, with some stipulations. In practice that really only means partners as young as fifteen (as low as thirteen in some states) and most of the higher animals. The laws are still inconsistent across the states, depends mostly on how many cohabs are in each state and which corp owns them.

    >>-Are toy stores still around?

    Online ones. You download the toy and print it out with a desktop fabricator, if you own one. Plastic is pretty expensive these days though, so only the hardcore collectors print in the original materials.

    Haha sadly still a pipe dream. Lots of robots, even limited deployment of exoskeletons, but none any bigger than say a small car.

    >>-Any mental disorders that are left uncurable, or can we fix all that in utero?

    Nearly everything. There's a fluke now and then and the news jumps all over it but for the most part we have it pretty good.

    >>-Can we choose baby genders?

    Yes, and every other trait. The corps have a set of templates you can choose if you're comfortable with them defining your child's traits; Really though it's only limited change, a collection of the best copyrighted intelligence enhancements, physical enhancements and so on. The kid still has mostly your DNA, you just benefit from the most advanced hacks available without having to pay what they would cost in proper dollars. It's in the corps best interest to have smarter and stronger employees obviously so reprogenetic correction is subidized, barely bites into your stipend.

    It's called opera but it's nothing like what it historically meant. It typically involves entirely synthesized instrumentals although you can't tell, it's deep and powerful, and the vocalists have a very wide range. Amette is my favorite personally but they replaced the lead singer with some Irish girl who isn't BAD per se but she brings a very very different sound to the table.

    I don't mean to disappoint, but that isn't really possible just yet. We've got really good responsive prosthetics with sensation and shit but while the stipend system provides pretty well and I appreciate it, it makes it significantly harder for anyone who isn't already wealthy to become so. As such even if someone wanted to go full prosthetic it would be extraordinarily expensive. The furthest I've ever seen anyone go is all four limbs and two organs.

    >>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.

    >>So all three companies just stop making consoles after this generation? What companies DO start making consoles?

    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.

    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.

    You mentioned that you're paying for your past-internet based on time and stuff. I'm assuming that stealing wifi is a thing of the past? What about pirating? Do people run modified OS's for their prosthetics? 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 way you describe things, technology/science seems to be progressing slower than usual. What was the most recent major technological/scientific advancement. AI? Cloning?

    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.

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

    >>What about pirating?

    >>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.

    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.

    Surprising when they get stuff right and funny where they get stuff wrong. The fact that people are homeless or destitute in games sticks out like a sore thumb, it's like "who blows their stipend so fast that they can't make rent?" Also the treatment of homosexual, intergenerational and interspecies relationships. Mass Effect is actually considered a pioneering title in this respect, in that it treats interspecies relationships as normal and healthy.

    Actually they're in the history books although 4chan isn't mentioned. In managing to ban Scientology they set the legal precedent that made it possible to prevent evangelist organizations from rising up again after the civil war. This is pretty much the closes 4chan ever comes to historical significance, beyond catch phrases that our grandparents think are funny.

    >>Also, are there any sort of technological advancements regarding trains and railroads?

    Look up "Personal Rapid Transport". That's taken the place of most cars, and yes versions with larger cabins and provisions for long distance journey under the hot sun are used for travel between cohabs, the tracks partially or completely underground wherever possible.

    >>Are they working on generating atmosphere on Mars and the Moon?

    No, not to my knowledge.

    >>Or are they simply habitation domes with wildlife exported to the habitable zones?

    The only domes are the inflatable surface ones, usually pool decks, part of some resort. Most of the habitats are underground as dirt is cheap shielding from radiation. On luna they had to dig it all out but on Mars they just sealed up lava tubes. I've seen pictures of a guy walking barefoot in a Martian lava tube, no spacesuit or anything. He was holding a handful of rocks covered in lichen....growing on martian rocks. And the dude was breathing with no space suit. Blew my fucking mind, and made me wonder what sort of flora and fauna they could set up if they found or created a suitably large cavern. Sealing it so as to minimize air loss would be a bitch though.

    >>Also, how do you generate the sort of energy to make spaceflight affordable?

    Space elevator, one built by Virgin-Bigelow and the other in construction right now by NASA. The travel between luna and mars is provided by Virgin Bigelow in the form of ferries, basically thin metal superstructures in space like a bridge or something built out of erector set. Can be any shape they like, the purpose is to have lots of hard points to attach tanks for fuel, water, air, food, cargo, whatever is needed. On one end there's a nuclear pulse drive and the impact plate, and on the other end is the crew compartment. Virgin Bigelow has a fleet of five, NASA has only two.

    There was a civil war with the chri-doms, ended in ten months, and bio weapons were used against them of the sort that I prefer not to talk about.

    Of course. Hell if you feel like it you needn't work at all, subscriptions to three, maybe four developers are totally affordable with even the basic stipend package. With the typical subscription you get any game they release as it comes out, for a flat monthly fee.

    >>also how is the obesity epidemic we're currently under handled? Is our image of beauty changed to make being whats considered overweight now normal?

    Well no, modern drugs are administered via implants the size of a dime. They release horomonal agents gradually and while they are active, your BMI will not change significantly regardless of what you eat. On the downside they must be refilled through injection or removal (depending on model) once every two or three years.

    Hah! I guess in some sense. War is fought mainly with unmanned autonomous vehicles now. The middle east is kept manageable through flyovers of UAVs equipped with HERF (high energy radio frequency) dishes that can make you unconscious, nauseous, whatever. We have an use exoskeletons in combat, as legally a human must oversee autonomous military robots for them to be used. Crybaby legislation, you know. A notorious bioweapon was used during the course of the chri-dom civil war. Less said about that, the better.

    You don't really have to do anything you don't want to. There's still sporadic wars but on a smaller scale, mostly just UAVs and UGVs pacifying riots and shit. The last war of any significance was the civil war with the chri-doms.

    Chri-doms is a play on words, referencing the term "Chi-coms", what conservatives used to call Chinese Communists.

    Chri-Doms actually stands for Christian Dominionists, a coalition of far right evangelical organizations that were largely founded shortly after the Roe v. Wade decision and gradually grew, empowered by each loss against evolution in the courts and finally motivated to violence by the loss of Huckabee to Maynard in 2024.

    The bioweapon is a parasite, an altered form of "toxoplasma gondii" (look it up) that, short answer, makes you crazy and violent.

    Most cohabs are supported by labor compounds a few kilometers away where robots mine, farm, manufacture and so on 24/7. Every child born is entitled to a basic stipend package, about $4,000 a month. You can live off this by itself or you can work for the corp that owns your cohab and earn proper dollars, which can be used to buy shares in the company, which in turn grows your stipend.

    Now you're going a bit over the top. Most scientists who happen to be Christians aren't as vocal nor nuts as the fundies. Considering that it would basically be Rome 2.0, the Christian right would eventually devolve in a state similar to the Pauline era, but instead of letters, it's e-mails, IM, texts, etc. Except unlike Roman times, Christians probably won't be fed to the lions. I'd assume that's what becomes of the Christian churches.

    Of course I'm ranting here. Do continue.

    indeed. OP for proper writing you should NOT do that. If you DID have the ability to post anytime in the past, you wouldn't mention being cut off, because you posted next month (your time) at the present time, without any gap in time.

    so OP for future reference don't pull that crap, keep posting until you excuse yourself with another activity, like flying around in a jetpack.

    I like your ideas future guy... You should put them to use in a novel like some other Anon said... So I'll challenge some of what you've posted.

    >google it
    You'd think that after everything you've described about brands changing names, purposes, etc. There wouldn't be a Google, and the phrase "google it" wouldn't be in use or would be replaced by something else.

    >civil war with the chri-doms
    What is this war? And where does it originate, the US? How and why does it come about?

    >Roughly 110 years for insiders, 60 for outsiders. Anyone who can afford it goes into cold sleep when they're 80 or so.

    What environments do "insiders" live in? You'd think with the enclosure of humans there'd be a weakening of the immune system and more genetic weaknesses would shorten a human being's life-span. Why only 60 years for "outsiders"? Global warming? Fiercer predatory species? Also, what do you mean by "cold sleep"? I assume its some form of cryo-sleep, but for what purpose? They'll wake you up when someone finds a way to keep you alive longer?

    He mentioned in the last thread that Google is still going strong and is in fact one of the mega corporations that owns a bunch of arcologies.

    >>What is this war? And where does it originate, the US? How and why does it come about?

    He mentioned it in this very thread, and with more detail in the last one.

    I'll agree that google and wikipedia may dissapear, but at the same time, there's a possibilty that may still be going strong (take mcdonalds, big boy, and goldbaum's footpowder for instance)

    the chri-dom was answered in an earlier post ctrl-f it.

    644 KB Hey /v/, remember me? Future !GUYX/6jp3w 12/17/08(Wed)22:08 No.24334443  
    It's been a while. For you, anyway. It's '95 now.

    I moved into a new cohab, the Google one, my parents are at the age where they're thinking about cold sleep and they want me close by so they can be near the grandkids, if I ever give them any. I'm in the process of transferring credits to the franchise school in this hab so I won't have class until the paperwork's done. I overspent my stipend this month. I really shouldn't be dropping the cash for this connection, but my priorities are retarded like that. I haven't even bought metabs although I don't live near a resort so it's not like they're vital atm.

    I've got a new panel, it's Apple so I have to wait for the permissions to transfer, so it can redownload my collection in the right format. I was near the end of nightcore when I bought the new panel (I gave the old one to my ex) and I won't be able to finish it until it's replaced. Meanwhile my global ranking is dropping and because my ingame house is persistent some faggot has probably already looted my shells.

    So what's going on in 2008? =] Wii 2 is just around the corner, looking forward to that?

    Yes, one nuclear weapon has been used in 'war' between 2008 and 2095. Nobody was killed, it was shot down in the launch phase. Long story, but I'll give you three guesses who launched it

    Swimmingly, no thanks to him. History gives most of the credit to his appointees, most of whom retain their positions through several admnistrations while the energy transition finishes up. Oh, and get ready for a woman president, speaking of which if you thought the "Obama is not eligible to be president" conspiracy theory behind the attempt on his life was retarded, expect more of the same when Chelsea's elected.

    Not really. Never been to any of the habs in Europe obviously but I'd imagine it's the same as it is here, most people who are patriotic have something like what you'd call school spirit or fanboyism for the corp that runs their cohab.

    And learn to like riots btw, it's gonna get worse until you accept the stipend economy, then it dies down because the muslims generally stick to their own habs and everyone else sticks to theirs.

    Made a comeback recently, I was Christian for a few weeks but then it was all about Therevada Bhuddism for a while. Someone asked me about this last time, I should probably explain that nobody really commits to a religion anymore. It's more of a fashion thing, a statement you make, and they come and go in terms of popularity. Nobody really believes in supernatural stuff anymore if that's what you mean, except in certain countries I guess.

    >>24335797

    >>Cohabs = cohabitation units?
    >>Autolabor = mechanised >>labour/manufacturing/service industry...?

    Yeah. Cohabs are basically any plurally zoned building, since lots of them were converted from old malls and airports, but most of the newer ones were purpose-built to be cohabs. Think in terms of like a really big mall that has every amenity a whole city has plus apartments.

    autolabor compounds are farms, mines, fisheries, factories and so on condensed onto fenced off land where robots specialized for each task produce material goods nonstop 24/7. Everyone owns a certain percentage of whatever they produce, depending on how many shares they own, and they can buy that produce with their monthly stipend.

    A few questions. Since you mentioned riots, and you pic brings it up, how is society outside the cohabs, if indeed it does exist? And how do the two get along?

    Also, concerning data in the future, you've obviously have gotten to the point where cryogenics is plausible, so has immersion to the internet and other electronic mediums become more sophisticated, a la IRL Home (Or even becoming psuedo-"gods" in a sense of no defined reference point or boundary?)

    How does economics play out in such a society? Since living seems based off a stipend of sorts, what means of advancement socially is there, what goods and services are primarily consumed, and most importantly, what kickass game in the next few years should I collect to lock in a bunker and sell as a physical copy for a few credits down the line?

    Yes, most games use one of a handful of middleware engines now all of which allow you to scale all the way down to looking at individual atoms. As for VR it's a niche market but most games you can play on panel can also be played on optics if you have a good pair. I have the ones Microsoft makes, I only use it for flight/space sims, FPS and driving. You can use it on almost any game there just isn't much reason to since the panels are 3D already, and you can shift your view by moving your head, the experience is pretty similar.

    Hows the Porn Industry going? Is it more "accepted" in your lifestyle? Are there any changes on how people view or access porn?

    Also, what are the latest fashions and stereotypes in your part of the Future?

    And lastly, has the age changed regarding when one can legally have sex/drink/drive etc.? Basically, is 18 still the age when you are considered an adult?

    >>Is the concept of Gay marriage taboo still? Or Abortion? Or Incest? I'd imagine that there are preventative drugs that you can take that avoid birth still in 2090, though those three might be a matter of Cohab acceptance, right?

    Abortion's part of reprogenetics so no, doesn't bother most these days. "Gay" marriage is just, I dunno. It's marriage. Nobody cares. The issue everyone is pissed about is interspecies. When my parents were my age it was age of consent related stuff. There are plenty of taboos I guess, incest is still kind of looked down on although nobody goes to jail for it I think, I just moved here and I'd have to check the pamphlet. I've never heard of a cohab with laws against it anyway.

    Yeah we still have Christmas, although all the cohabs celebrate it a little differently, depending on the cohab. Some of them are trying to replace santa with their corp. mascot, like kids won't know the difference. Probably thinking it'll increase loyalty.

    >>A few questions. Since you mentioned riots, and you pic brings it up, how is society outside the cohabs, if indeed it does exist? And how do the two get along?

    The only people who willingly live outside the cohabs are the religious extremists who think they're sodom/gommorahs or something. Most habs trade with them since traditional handmade goods (i.e. not made and sold by the corp that owns your hab) fetch a premium. You get pretty sick of the same few brands after a while.

Just imagine a variety of different robots, specialized for shit like repairing plumbing/electrics/photonics, cleaning floors/windows and so on, ranging from the size of a grain of rice to the size of a shoebox.

    Sort of. We have lots of auto labor bots that look sort of mechlike depending what their job is. Many of the swarmbots are too tiny to hold decent batteries so they have a mother, sort of a larger robot that carries them all like bees in a hive, and transmits power to them over a few hundred feet and contains the one computer that controls them all. When they're finished cleaning up or whatever the job is they all climb back into the mother robot and it takes them wherever else they need to go. Some of these are pretty big like the four legged ones that carry and refuel uavs, they had one on defenseorg that looked like an aircraft carrier on legs but only like ten feet tall, it launched little buzzers with cameras and stuff that fly inside buildings.

    Oh, there's military/insudtrial/medical power armor though, we even call it that.

    Thanks. Fucking pretentious bastards trying to act like this is Communist Russia.

    I understand if you're unwilling to answer more than one post from a particular person, but are people capable of inhabiting machines to learn more about any tasks? I mean, if people are working on maintenance for the robots on the farms (though I'm sure those robots have maintenance droids, I mean as far down as when it becomes necessary for human intervention, though it's entirely likely that it is not.
    And when I mean inhabiting, can they briefly have their consciousness moved into a system of internal cameras that program the workings of the machine into the humans brain, therein making them capable of understanding certain problems with the machine?

    Also, is there a sequel to Banjo Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts? Is it decent? Does a simplistic vehicular construction system depicted in the first ever actually become a reality?

    Can you have these old games programmed into your brain to play, and use the further capacities of your brain to play them in seconds to get an understanding of what the game is like? Or can that be 'coded' into your brain like some kind of futuristic (Ha) review?

    That's like asking if everyone's an abolitionist in your time. I guess technically most people are atheists, and come to think of it that's probably why nobody calls themselves that. It's one of the big deals of the millenium though, we had a section in history on the new renaissance.

    I dunno, some of that really did happen. Sort of. We don't have flying cars but we do have prt, it's pretty different from cars. clothes are pretty different, and most gun owners opt for LIPC over ballistic because of the tighter laws on the ballistic ones. LIPC is basically a wireless taser, you point and shoot, and it shocks the guy. OH and there's lots of lasers and other shit like that in military use. ADS is out of service but CMBs were deployed in the civil war and although legislation was passed after the fact making it illegal, the neutron spotlight was fielded in a few small engagements.

    >>Do people still play sports, or is physical activity kept to a minimum thanks to video games?

    They do, but for fun. You don't really need to exercise unless you go off your metabs for a while and overeat. Even then most of the medical courts have at least one therapy center with a pilot, it's a machine that uses the same technology as cybernetic prosthetics except instead of using your brain signals to move a robotic arm it lets a computer directly control your body, and it makes you exercise. You don't even feel anything except a warm numbness, most people sleep through it. When it's finished having you work out, one of the attendants or a bot wakes you up and they take off the brace on your neck and you're like "Fuck, all of my muscles are fucking burning". That's what it was like for me the first time anyway since I hadn't had to exercise basically ever until then.

    Sure, lots of map apps do this. Most cohab corps will pay for their land to be carefully modelled so that every populated area in the maps is detailed down to each little room inside each cohab, it even populated them with little AI people. It's fun just to watch them dick around and pretend to have lives.

    Some games even use the map app engines as middleware since 90% of the locations they need for the plot are already modeled.

    The stipend economy isn't communism. Communism has the state owning the means of production and the laborers produce the goods. Instead, everyone owns a share of the overall autolabor produce and this is enforced by the national gov. nobody works unless they want the extra income/shares and machines perform all of the labor.

    Haha hell no, although the Yum hab I came from had a lot of the types who fill up on implants and that's one of the bright sides to the move.

    >>24338395

    A lot of things. Some of the technologies used to curb the effect actually make it worse. Some people think there never was a global warming problem until we tried to fix it. Also, imagine millions of autolabor compounds running 24/7 and how much pollution that produces. Not like they use combustibles for power, but a lot of the waste products are thought to have sped up the heating effect. It's leveled off and everyone credible has been on saying that it will begin to come back down in the next century, so by the time I'm out of cold sleep people will probably live outside again. Regular people I mean.

    Buying stuff. It's not currency in the sense that yours is because the economy is so different of course; You recieve a monthly stipend, the amount of which is determined by how many shares your family owns. We still call them dollars, although it's different in some habs, where they're named after the parent corp. The purpose is just to keep people from consuming more than their share of goods per month. It's a way of regulating consumption, that's all, because there are only so many autolabor compounds. It's not like every single person can have as much of everything as they want, all the time especially since we've been gradually throttling down production under pressure from environmental groups who blame autolabor for the heating effect.

    1. Most intelligent people don't. Religion seems to be the main cause of homophobia.
    2. It's just a cultural taboo that we've held on to. Like crossdressing, just something we see as weird.

    Cog. neurobiology is at a stage where we know that's a load of shit. We use different parts of our brain from moment to moment, its never fully active with every neuron firing at once, but that doesn't mean that 90% of it does nothing. Oh also one of the big discoveries was neuroredundancy, most of the specialized sections of the brain have the ability to take on a secondary function if the portion responsible for it is damaged. Figured this out in the course of researching the best positioning of hard implants, you can interface with vision without fucking around in the actual visual cortex for example.

    >>one question. What is used for fuel?

    For what? Most bots run off EESU or hydrogen, like large vehicles. PRT uses EESU or nanowire for storage in case their tracks or towers go offline for some reason. Cohabs are all self sustaining with nuclear, geothermal, hydro power and wind in different combinations depending on what resources can be exploited in that region.

    Man, shit, I have so much to tell you guys. Remember? I asked where to vacation this Summer and I told you I'd report on it.

    I'm sending the emd file from my phone right now, I'll post it in sections. If some of it's messed up don't blame me, shit's unreliable and I'm gonna be sending huge blocks of text.

    08:19: I'm in the prt on the way to the airport. Getting a few weird looks from the couple sitting opposite me, probably think I'm writing about them. I guess I am actually. She's a lunaran, he's a helene, and I feel a little shitty saying so but Helenic never looks good on men. The whole gold tone skin with the dark pigment around the eyes was intended to accentuate women imo, and it just looks tacky on him. He's a little chubby anyway, how is he affording to fly anywhere when he can't even afford metabs? 10 prop. dollars says he's living outside his means to keep her from losing interest. I'd do the same, she's gorgeous, although I've never seen a lunaran girl that didn't wear the white hair and slender build gracefully. She's got on a body brace under her clothes because of the gravity, she obviously knows I can tell because she's been shifting her dress around to hide the calf braces ever since I got in the PRT. You? Yeah you, you're looking at me. I wish I could tell you that you're lovely, don't worry about the brace. If you're going to the orbital, you won't need to wear it anyway. =] (Wish he weren't here so I could say that to her.)

    10:02: I just got checked, my id's going to expire soon because it's embedded in my cell implant, and in the new hab you can't have any implants not produced by Google, they say it's about data security. I didn't even think to check, thank god they let it slide, this trip wouldn't fit into my schedule if I had to postpone it. I'm in the food court atm, next to the apartments. Lot of lunarans here. This is the time of year when many of 'em visit their families. The guy across from me has a body brace that's really old, I could hear the motors making that whiny, grinding noise as he walked past, and it's clunky enough you can see it clearly through his clothes. I didn't say anything, if he can't afford a new brace then his family's probably paying his roto/lift fares. I got myself a bread bowl at Karnes, hot food always gets my body moving in the morning. Ugh, eyes are still crusty too. 40 minutes till the flight, still.

    10:50: Woop! I'm boarded, and the girl next to me is one of the lunarans I saw in the food court! She's using the bathroom now so I gotta make this quick, I don't wanna freak her out by writing constantly right next to her. God she has a perfect little ass. I wonder if she's going to the luna hab or one of the orbitals. It'd be too perfect if I somehow wound up on the beach next to her, I'd shit my pants. Wups, I can see her coming back down the isle. The rotodyne's starting up anyway, we'll be taking off soon. I'll do a new entry when we land.

    18:40: We landed at the liftport a while ago, now I just have to wait till they clear out the cabin before we can board. The flight was decent but long as fuck, they served "shrimp" stew for some reason (usually they serve something themed to the destination) and that girl went to the sleep deck about halfway through the flight. She took a sleep tab before she left and I kept imagining her conked out, garaunteed for the next hour....Had some naughty thoughts about sneaking down there, but then everyone does, which is why they put in all the cameras. I'm kidding anyway, I never would. God she's cute. I don't see her in the lobby, I wonder where she is.

    19:13: FINALLY. Someone got sick on the way down so the boarding was delayed, but I'm in my bunk now. It's like the sleep deck on a rotodyne, except instead of hammocks they're like a sort of reclining foam bed dealie, but they're stacked so they can fit as many people in here as possible. You can pull a shutter down so your own little coffin(lol) has some privacy, and there's a pane right above your face for movies, apps, games, whatever. I brought my nightcore ID but I found out you can only choose from the games built into the unit and you have to pay nearly a proper dollar for every half hour you play. Fuck that. The movies and apps are free though and they have this one that's a fulldetail model of Earth with the lift and it tracks your lift precisely so you know how close you are to the orbital. Oh, good news! That girl is in the bunk below mine. Bad news is that means I can't beat one out or she'll hear me. This is gonna be a long week.

    10:23: Could have, and really should have taken a shuttle. I had the money I guess, but I've been overspending recently, etc. etc. It's only one day in and already I'm remembering why I hate lift travel. The flight was long enough, and now I have nearly 40 people around my coughing, laughing at stupid shit and paying no attention to their screaming kids running around the hub hallway not listening to the com telling them to get back in their parents' bunks. I swear to god I will strangle you little fuckers if you don't SHUT UP FUUUUCK. Mantle was on and I watched most of it, fell asleep and when I woke up they were handing out meals. Doesn't even approach the rotodyne food, it's more like something out of a vendor. I understand, you know, space constraints on a lift but if I wanted to eat reheated processed crap I'd have stayed home. The cuisine on Island 8 is supposed to be orgasmic though, they have Alejandro Graciano on full time staff. I'm gonna eat like a king, and that'll be the part I'll remember. I'm gonna put on something calming and try to sleep.

    21:40: Slept intermittently. The bunks are heated, it's really nice. I have a pad for my bed at home but this one has little massagers or something because when I was playing with the panel menu I went into stress relief and after dicking around with the options I felt something kneading my shoulders. Not bad, not bad. The nicer rotos have this but I've never been on a lift that did. I wonder if I leave it on overnight, if I'll wake up with some kind of horrible back-muscle disfigurement. :p

    09:01: They folded down the observation deck yesterday but I was a sleep so I didn't get to use it yet but I'm going out later today. We're high enough up now that they make you wear a breather, a warmsuit and goggles but you can clearly see the curvature of the earth and I've only been on an observation deck once when I was younger, I couldn't really appreciate it. They're opening it up to us in an hour or two, for now I'm playing around in the panel options. I figured out how to open the porthole shutter....if I had gotten one of the bunks with a porthole. Some shithead invalid kid probably has it, and isn't even enjoying it. I wonder if I could sweet talk someone with a porthole bunk into switching.

    11:45: I just came in from the ob. deck. It was refreshing to get under the sky, the cold wind rushing past you, peering over a rail and seeing the whole Earth spread out. Especially after spending nearly two full days between my bunk and the toilet. There's a little ring shaped bar/table around the central shaft with stools, I wind up eating there most of the time since I don't want to make a mess in my bunk. It'd suck if I spilled something since I have a few days left before we reach the lift orbital. It's getting really cold too, my bunk's the only place to stay warm. Some of the better offs have their own warmsuits, they're not too pricy and I even told myself it would be smart to buy one for the trip but as usual I never got around to it.

    18:20: Watched a bunch of Backwater eps today, plowed through season 4 and I'm almost caught up. Everyone keeps pressuring me to watch Phenominae but the plot is fan-guided and from what I hear secondhand it's veering towards drama involving favorite gay/inter pairings and they've left the war on Celeste story arc on the back burner which was the only reason I was interested in watching anyway.

    06:33: Woken up early by crying kid, but figured it was a chance to stretch my legs before everyone else got up. Walked around the hub a few times, checked the schedule and confirmed that the ob. deck is closed for the rest of the trip. I may as well just stay in my bunk from now on. Dad used to bore the shit out of me about how lifts used to take a month, and how he had snuck into a freshman's bunk on a hab sponsored class trip to one of the first orbitals, the inflatable ones. Maybe if I spot that girl getting up to eat or something I could strike up a conversation...? But if I fuck it up the rest of thr trip would be really awkward. God listen to me I don't even know her...There'll be plenty of girls in Island 8. Plenty of Lunarans on the beach, naked and gorgeous with the clouds of Earth as a backdrop.....Glad I picked this over the aerium. I mean same experience, but less lunarans, and more budget tourists who can't afford metabs and are probably the last people who should go naked. I've been off my tabs for a few weeks just because I overspent last month but I'm not a big eater, and at the risk of sounding like an ass, I still look pretty beachworthy.

    11:26: Eventually I just went back to sleep, I'm still in my bunk. I tried to talk this family of well-offs about switching and predictably they weren't in a charitable mood. There's another Lunaran girl aboard I noticed on the ob. deck the other day and then again this morning, she's not as pretty but she's actually pretty busty which is really rare for lunaran chicks, I'd estimate a high b cup. Oh man, both of them at once in my bunk...What is it about being on vacation that makes me horny all the time, fuck. Thinkin' about those aerium toursts again ought to counteract that.

    16:54: I've been checking the map app every five minutes lately. The little indicator is maddening, like watching paint dry. SO CLOSE to the orbital. I've been living in a fantasy world where I'm already in Island 8, everyone else is visibly excited too for whatever they've got planned. They'll only issue you one pair of sleep tabs a day so I can't just spend the rest of the trip conked out but I'm gonna try anyway. Oh, I'm current on Backwater btw and it was a predictable bullshit cliffhanger at the end of the season, Chu and Aaron escape the raider tower by roto, one of the corp. officers that was cutting deals with the raider chief helped them escape but it cut off to the credits just before it showed her face. It's Maria, or that's what everyone in the site lounge/forum is saying.

    20:19: Slept all day again yesterday. Had nothing to write about anyhow, except that I DID talk to that girl! I was shaky as fuck but I pulled out the ol' charm and she laughed at pretty much every joke. She seems shy and reserved so I can't be 100% that she's interested but she did add me on her profile and we argued about the Backwater cliffhanger over the bunk panels for like an hour yesterday. She woke me up over panel this morning too, to tell me we were almost at the orbital. Her name is Ciane. Oh and I'm glad I didn't flirt with that other lunaran, I saw her at the commons table with her boyfriend, fucker's well off but easily like half a foot shorter than I am. He looked mixed lunaran/martian, skin was mottled grey, obviously she doesn't mind but it's an ugly combo on anyone imo.


    01:40: It's good to finally be out of that cabin. Out of my bunk! Jesus invalid Christ, that was the most agonizing trip I've ever been on. This one chubby helenic girl cornered me, I guess she had wanted to talk to me the entire time. When she saw me talking to Ciane I guess she figured that was her cue. You know who she turned out to be? My formative school classmate, Rona. She said it was a coincidence we ended up on the same cabin but I'm inclined to think that she followed me. If I wind up seeing her butt-ass naked on the beach, I'm going to climb into a warmsuit, hold my breath and throw myself back to earth.

    03:08: Boarding is finished and they're prepping to separate from the orbital. It'll take two days to get to Island 8, not that I care, Ciane came up to ME and asked ME to sit together. I feel like I'm off my shit on tabs right now and I'm so giddy I might puke. I feel a little bad because I went on a date with a girl in my new hab already but it hadn't gotten serious yet, and besides, I'm young! It's Summer! I met a lunaran and if I play my cards right I'll be hip deep in her in my Island 8 suite three days from now. Ohshit she's coming back to her seat, I'll add more in a bit

    09:12: I meant to add more yesterday but Ciane and I talked basically the rest of the day and I'm 100% that she likes me now, she said she's been to Island 5 before with her brother but that he felt out of place because "lunarans have a hard time building muscle even with tabs", so I'm all "I've actually been off tabs for a few weeks, I hope I don't stand out that much", and she says "liar, you look like your stiped is like 70/30 metatabs to food." and she reaches out and pokes my stomach. I told her in my best comically over-the-top arrogant voice about how the corp that makes metabs just extracts pure sexiness elixir from a tap in my side and then bakes it into tablet form. I knew it wasn't that funny but she acted like it was pretty fucking jokes, and that's when I thought "holy shit she really is hot nuts for me". To everyone who told me to pick Island 8, THANK YOU.

    17:00: See, compare shuttle travel to lift travel. I just had a cookie shake desert after lobster bisque and salad medly. I mean, I sucked it all out of foil pouches but it was honestly a better meal than anything I had on the lift. The bisque was fantastic although I found a hard bit in it and it put me off a little, and the shake...I probably shouldn't have had while off metabs but fuck everything I'm on vacation right? Siane asked to share mine since she only wanted a little desert....Her lips were on the straw, and then mine. I had a heart attack pretty much. OH also as it turns out it's "Siane" not "Ciane". When I heard her say it I assumed it was spelled similar to Cyan but she was like "No no, with an 'S'. I rolled my eyes and told her it was trendy bullshit and she laughed...but also punched me in the shoulder. Her hair looks gorgeous btw, white as a cloud. She had it out floating everywhere today while she combed it, some of it got in my face and she apologized but the truth is I'd love to bury my face in it, run my fingers through it. God help me, lunarans are the best.

    22:44: My face is still a little red. Uggghh. We were talking about stuff in our lives and I told her about how I had to sell my microlite and get a new thin film panel when I moved into my new hab, and she was like "You don't have to try to impress me you know". I swear that's not what I was trying to do, now she probably thinks I'm a pompous bragging idiot. Maybe I'm just blowing it out of proportion...I just wanna make a good impression, and not fuck this up. I've never been with a lunaran, I don't know what I'm doing. Not that I usually do, anyway.

    08:10: I just woke up, we're docking! Also I freaked out for no reason yesterday, she's been really touchy feely and I was on a roll, telling her the hilarious prt story and she was making references to it the rest of the day, eventually one of the stewards pulled herself up to our row and told us to stop laughing so loud or she'd seat one of us elsewhere. I looked around and saw Rona at the back, glaring. Bitch got us in trouble in purpose. I won't dwell on it anyway, I'm too off my shit over how hot Siane is and how for some reason she's latched onto me. I hope it isn't just for this vacation. It'd be selfish to expect anything more, but...I really like her.

    12:05: Ahhh sorry! I completely neglected my duties, I know. Island 8 is in. fucking. credible. Everything I heard about it is true except for one thing and I'll get to that later. The minute we got off the shuttle Siane grabs me by the wrist and drags me around like I'm on a leash, she wanted to see every part of Island 8 on the first day before we were even settled into our suites. I'm exhausted. Everything's put away and I'm settled in now but I couldn't say no to her so yeah, I've seen basically everything already, at least in the entrance lobby and beachside plaza. She uh....kissed me. Sort of. She was so excited, all "I can't believe it! We're finally here!!" and she pecks me on the cheek and then runs full tilt towards the beach even though she was still in her normal clothes. I just stood there like an idiot, my overly cautious brain struggling with what it could possibly mean, anything but the obvious of course. I have to stop that shit, Eric always tells me I need to grow a pair and just go into things assuming I know what I'm doing. If I'm wrong and Siane just thinks I'm some kind of...temporary vacation buddy? I'll live. I've been through worse. Maybe it's because I'm on vacation or maybe it's because I've just been kissed in space, the shining Earth hanging overhead, but my heart doing gymnastics right now and I can't fucking calm down.

    So the beach isn't like the pictures, but I knew that. It's beautiful obviously but you can tell the sand is fabricated and the curvature of the ground is worse than it appears in photos, which were probably distorted to make it look more level. It's not too bad, but it's no Island 15. There's no discernible horizon or localized weather, like in that one and the other three 'big' orbitals. There are real plants though and they 'framed' the beach in such a way that you can't see any of the border walls where the clear cieling segment meets the 'floor', so it really looks like a sky unless you face away from the water, and back towards the plaza, then you can see the overhead border wall, where the 'sky' ends. Also the cieling isn't perfectly clear, it's temperature cured and it has a thin network of wires that protect it in the event that it's fractured, plus a thin layer of some kinda polymer that protects against micrometeorite impacts. It gives everything outside a barely noticable yellow tint. But I'm nitpicking, it's gorgeous and I spent the first two hours talking with a beautiful girl, on the beach, under a starry sky. I've already gotten my moneys worth, and I'm still so fucking overwhelmed that I don't know how I'm gonna get to sleep tonight.

    22:10: I've had dinner with Siane, It was seafood, as in real seafood, nothing like the attempt at shrimp stew I had on the roto, it was crab legs and oysters. I hate oysters but I love crab legs and I found out something about Siane: She can pack it away. I don't know what she spends on tabs or if maybe it's a lunaran thing but despite being built like a stick, she must've eaten a solid three, four pounds of crab legs. I struggled to keep up, and rememebr I fucking love crab legs. She acted like it was nothing out of the ordinary, and we went straight from the bistro to the outside theatre. I should probably explain how Island 8 is set up: Imagine an orange, where you've cut out a section that is 25% of it, half of a hemisphere. That much of it is transparent. The other half of that hemisphere is the beach, the sand, doesn't need to be transparent. This makes up half of Island 8. The entire sphere rotates around one axis so that you're pressed towards the inner side of the outer shell, so the water, the sand, everything is held against the "floor", and for the most part the illusion of gravity is perfect. You can feel a slight sense of vertigo if you run, because the direction you're being pulled in changes slightly as you're moving, but if you sit absolutely still you can't feel any sense of movement or rotation or anything. It's like being on Earth except for the reduced gravity, you couldn't tell the difference. Anyway the other half of Island 8 is stuff like restaurants, spas, saunas, sports centers, you name it. There's even a movie theatre for some stupid reason as if people who passed their time in the lift bunk watching movie after movie on the way to Island 8 would choose to spend their time in Island 8 watching *more movies*. No thank you. Tomorrow I told Siane we could spend the whole day swimming, and I rented gliders without telling her, I hope that's the sort of thing she's into.

    19:06: She noticed my 'diary' today. Saw me writing in it anyhow and I made up a story on the spot, told her I was writing a report for school. Reminded me I'm having my phone taken out when I get back. Straight from the best vacation of my life to minor surgery, wonderful. OH but we went gliding today!! I mean that's hardly the best part. She was naked when I met her on the beach. That was... Yeah. It made my day and I could spend the rest of this entry just writing terribly lewd descriptions but sufficed to say, I inwardly wept tears of joy. She was so happy when I showed her the glider tickets! I had bought them without even knowing where the rental center was but the tickets had a little direction indicator and it flashed instructions, next to a little graphic of a confused cartoon spaceman who Siane teased "was obviously intended" to represent me. :p So a glider is basically a small tank of compressed air at the top of a thin frame you stand on. You hold something like a handlebar above your head which controls a tilting arrangement of downward facing nozzles. The gravity is low enough that you can take right off and fly freely around the beach section using these. I was a bit too adventurous though, I got my altitude low enough that my legs were dipping in the water when one of the staff told me over the com that you were supposed to keep your altitute above ten feet at all times. Wups? Siane just laughed. I told her not to take pleasure in my misfortunes, and she said "But you're adorable when you're embarrassed". I pretended to be indignant but it made me really happy, which I doubt I hid convincingly. Dinner was blackened catfish with garlic potato rolls, and our waitresss looked exactly like Erin Loska.

    18:20: I saw Rona today, clothed thank god, heading for the sauna. I bet it smells like bacon now. Siane wanted to go too but I told her we should check out the spa first, and she didn't seem to mind. This was only the second time I've been naked around her and the first time on the beach I kept it down through an act of sheer fucking willpower but that wasn't going to happen today. Today was the best day of my young life. After a few minutes of talking about nightcore (she plays! Luna server though which explains why I've never seen her ingame) she had to get out of the hot tub because lunarans have really sensitive skin and low tolerance for heat. When she stood up to get out it was like a pillar of light shone down upon her in slow motion, the steam rising around her, water streaming down her tall, fragile body. Not a hair anywhere except for her head, and her legs are (at their thickest point) about as big around as my upper arm, and easily four feet long. Being a leg man of course my brain locked up and there's no way she didn't notice that I was just *gawking* at her. So she goes to a massage table but they're full up, an influx of new hellenic tourists made for row after row of gold flab with a few dots of white wherever a lunaran had managed to claim a table. The hellenes were hogging all of the massiuers and I made a snarky comment about it hoping she didn't think me prejudiced, but the stereotype about lunarans and hellenes held true and she not only laughed but threw in a few anecdotes about hellenes being asked to leave the lunarhab for throwing a party that trashed six apartments and a commons.

    So I'm still laughing when she casually goes from that straight to "I suppose you could do it, are you any good". I didn't get it straight away but when it dawned on me that she was inviting me to massage her, again, untimely heart attack. Shit's going to kill me before I hit 30. So YES, I spent the best hour of my life doing my best to pretend that I was an expert masseur, only working up the courage to ah, apply...therapeutic...strictly medical...massage to her buttocks area. (fucking died of joy) about halfway in. She didn't even move to get up or say anything, just periodically made happy, sleepy noises while I did my best to kill an erection hard enough they they should build the next lift out of it. I dunno what I was worried about, she made a show of noticing it with a hands-on-cheeks "Oh my goodness~!" scandalized expression, we laughed a bit, but I did notice that her eyes didn't move away until I put my towel on.

    23:46: I JUST GOT LAID. VICTORY FOR EARTH. If I could send helios attached to these posts you'd see a little animation of me dancing a victory jig. She's sleeping in the bedroom, I'm writing this in the dark poking at my arm phone like a retard when I could be warm in bed with her but I have to record this, I want to remember this night forever.

    Here's how it went down. We were gonna split up after the spa but she held me back and after a few seconds of looking at the ground she quietly asked me if I'd mind if she came over and obviously I answered yes, which was the shortened form of "Thank you Buddha, Yahweh, Ahura, Allah and Ra. Thank you nobles, thank you Earth, thank fuck that I was born, this is god damn glorious." So I'm cleaning up and trying to look nice like a vain faggot in the bathroom mirror and she's choosing a movie to watch, right? I let her pick although it turns out to be a good one (Hortible Rex, some animated app that breaks the fourth wall and has him asking you how to solve shit) and I didn't mean to but the hot spa plus a long day of activities had me feeling sleepy as hell. I was laid back against her, my head resting on her lap/tummy, and I just sort of drifted off to sleep. I woke up when I felt a tickle on my arm and I looked over to see her poking at it. It took me a second to realize what was going on and I panicked. I regret it now but I was a little defensive, I snapped at her, forget exactly what but it doesnt matter now. She had been reading my travel diary off my arm implant while I slept and she had gotten all the way up to the July 16th entry by the time I woke up and stopped her. I moved away but she grabbed my arm, crawled next to me and kissed me.

    Just pulled me in and kissed me really deeply, and I stopped worrying for once and went with it. Her nipples were small, grey and tasted faintly sweet. It was a little awkward getting into position because her legs are so long and she's taller than I am in general but we found a good spot and the rest just happened. I couldn't get it all in (lunaran men are proportionally smaller in that area so as to conserve heat) but I'm sure I wasn't hurting her and she surprised me with how aggressive and noisy she was, her face turned flush pink, the sexist thing I've ever seen. That was at 22:50, I've showered up since and I'm gonna go crawl back in with her. I have you guys to thank for this, all of it, best decision I ever made.

    08:52: I woke up to Siane making a mushroom omelette. She had actually ordered ingredients delivered and then manually cooked breakfast for us. I hate mushrooms but I said nothing, choking it down with a giant grin on my face. "So you cook, then?" I said. "Oh I love to, I've done it as a hobby for a few years now and I can really-" I cut in with "You know, you don't have to impress me". I put on my best smug grin and she did her pouty face. God, I love her more than anything. I hope I'm not ruining the report for you guys by focusing too much on her, I know you want to know about Island 8 and such but this is really big for me, it's been more than a year since I've had a girlfriend, at least one that I'm so off my shit about. She lives in Sunnyvale and I'm just west of San Mateo, it's not long at all by prt, this could really work out and she seems as excited as I am. I must sound like a huge fag but I'm so happy right now I can barely write this. We're going out in a bubble today so I probably won't have time to type up another entry. It's like a 90% transparent inflatable ball that you and three other people can float around in that LEAVES THE ORBITAL. As in, it's floating in open space. The wait takes hours and you get like 20 minutes total because the bubble loses heat so quickly but it's one of the big deal attractions they advertise....it's also basically the only thing we haven't tried yet and we both leave on the 19th.

    01:58: I should be sleeping right now because I have to get packed and ready to go tomorrow. I'm tired as shit, Siane and I were just...yeah. I'm sweaty as fuck and I smell like a zoo. Happy though. I can't begin to tell you how happy. We got there at 10 and there was a helio show going on in the outdoor theater so for once there was actually a really short line. I made my case to the staffer and he let me and Siane go out just the two of us! :D It was only 20 minutes, but it was the best experience of my life, the best thing I've done on Island 8, and...probably the high point of my life. She mini shuttle carried us out a few hundred miles from the orbital and then spent a couple of minutes inflating the sphere. When I crawled through the ring I pancked a little, it was like climbing out of an open airlock into space. The material was slightly foggy because it's some kind of nanofiber laced plastic, strong enough I wasn't worried about a blowout. Siane came in after me, pushed off of the ring with her feet and tackled me midair. We both ran into the opposite wall and her hair draped over my hair, carried by the momentum. In this private white forest, she pressed her glossy little grey lips to mine and for a moment I really was in open space with her, there wasn't any bubble. We were the god and goddess of a new world. Corny, I know, but the way that her long white hair spread out in a gently waving mass around her glowing porcelain face is a beautiful, perfect memory that I will carry with me to the tube.

    20:19: Dinner was lovely. She put on an earthtone slip with frills around the bottom that ran up the gown portion in a helix, made to look like ivy. I held her close and told her she was a vision of beauty. She told me I was silly, and that people were staring. They were actually, I even saw that tubby hellene from the prt in the crowd with his own lunaran sweetheart. He nodded at me and smiled as if to say ""They really are the best, aren't they?" I smiled back as the waiter led us to our table. There was a special section for those on their final day, red silk draped over dense wood tables, as in real wood, from trees. Took me a moment to get over it. Then another moment to get over her. They had red candles set up in centerpieces surrounded by roses, as though intended to frame her face, to enhance its loveliness as if it were possible. My ears were red, pretty sure, and I felt conspicuously flustered for the entire evening. Siane picked up on it at least and was predictably tickled. We seriously discussed plans to carry on once back on Earth, and I was relieved to hear that her schedule would permit Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday trips by prt without much of a hassle. I'm off work at the moment, having moved, but when I start up in October I can definitely schedule my workdays around that. It's hard to imagine that any of this has really happened, you know. It's like once I left Earth everything past that has just been a wonderful fantasy that is going to vanish when I step out of the lift cab. It had better not. I would't *want* to return to Earth without Siane. (I'll probably find that last bit a little embrassing later but I'll leave it in. It's how I feel right now and Siane will probably gush about it anyway, knowing her. I'm gonna make a bunch of copies of this file before they take my phone out, and ID protect them this time. I dunno if I want her reading the whole thing just yet?)

    10:04: She kicked me out of bed early this morning and made me help her pack. Somehow even her bossy side is cute. :D I couldn't find some of my socks but that's hardly a tragic loss. We made it to the shuttle gate in plenty of time and they're prepping it for boarding right now. I remembered to pick up gold coated "Island 8 colonist" badges for Eric and my parents at one of the gift shops, somehow I hadn't remembered to pick up mementos until the last minute.

    11:16: We're settled in. Our tickets had us in different seats but the staffers see sappy couples come and go all the tiem so they were really understanding about it, they switched us with this elderly couple who wanted to be nearer to the bathrooms anyway (lol). We haven't even undocked yet and she's already asleep, hands grasping my arm, her head resting on my shoulder. She's snoring pretty loudly, which surprised me. The shuttle is one of the newer ones and it has glasses instead of panels, but I can't imagine wanting to be anywhere but right here, with her head on my shoulder. AAAHHH oh man I can't wait to tell Eric how we met. My parents might be a little surprised but given their history of social activism I can't imagine they have anything against lunaran girls. I'm getting ahead of myself again but I think it's safe at this point, I can't imagine that things won't work out. This has been the best week of my life.

We spent basically every day subjecting that elderly couple from the shuttle (who had the bunk below us) to ah, unusual noises. Just now I told Siane that story my dad always pulls out at parties or basically any time he has an excuse to. She laughed, and said that history moves in cycles. I asked her if she really believes it. She says "Sometimes. Right now, yes."

    I just saw Siane off at the prt terminal. Swept her up, kissed her like I meant it and told her not to forget that this really happened. She told me I was being dramatic, and that there's no way she could forget, not after the bubble. "That's exactly when I decided that I love you", she said. "What, *after* we...?" She gave me a sly grin. The prt folded shut and it sped off into the hillside, carrying the girl I love. I'm in my own prt now, it's quiet except for a barely audible electrical whine and the occasional click of the wheels hitting a track seam. I managed to get one to myself, and I keep thinking back to the couple I saw on my way to the airport. Maybe it wasn't their first time. Maybe they met the same way that Siane and I did, and it was an anniversary trip. Of course I'd be inclined to believe that, I'm off my shit in love. Come to think of it there's still the whole month of August ahead and the Aerium trip is cheap enough that if I went in on it with Siane we could do that too. I couldn't justify it before, but now that I've got someone to go with...=]

    >>How popular is transhumanism in the future?

    The church of the singularity is still around although it waned in popularity after all those tv reports on how weird their beliefs/practices are. They raise money through various means and spend it on replacing as much of their bodies with implants as possible.

    There are also fetishists who just do that without any religious motivation at all.

    >>Can you explain the different "races"?

    Sure. The helenes were one of the first designed races, mainly aesthetic and athletic changes. They have gold skin, dark pigment all around their eyes and blonde hair. I have seen a few young black or red headed helenes but that's a result of mixing.

    >>Is Earth a shithole now or...?

    I wouldn't call it that. The equator is unlivable obviously but the rise in temperatures turned northern tundra into temperate forests, and rendered a lot of Russia and Canada really pleasant for instance. Most Americans live in cohabs though, as the affordable land is all in regions that are hotter than you'd want to deal with. Besides, there are the outsiders to consider as well.

    Dubai is in ruins. Most of the construction was terribly cheap and the rising temperatures made it unlivable anyway, so everyone immigrated elsewhere and now all of the magificent (if poorly made) structures are in some state of collapse. I've seen photos, it's depressing, largely considered the titanic-scale folly of our time.

    No need for separate maps, you can scroll through time periods in most of the globe apps these days, it just fades in the older map data.

    >>How different is it? What countries have formed/disappeared? New landmasses or bodies of water? I'm a bit of a geography fag.

    Not too different. A lot of states/countries/towns remain on the map even though nobody lives there anymore. Southern US is sparsely wooded desert now, and Mexico got fucked hard. Russia is lovely now, most of it is temperate forest, and there was an influx of indian/middle eastern immigrants into newly established Russian habs when tensions got really bad between european and middle eastern immigrants in britain. Japan is all habs now, it's livable in winter but literally lethal outside in the summer. They took to hab living like bees to a hive though no shock there.

    Haha well I didn't want you make you guys wait to see how it turned out, and I had more than 2 weeks to write it.

    >>Is there a specific point where ballistic weapons were deemed obsolete? Were portable riot-control sort of weapons used instead?

    Ballistics are illegal inside habs, but some people do legally own lipc pistols. The military uses ballistics for some shit although battleships use railguns now, not cannons. Tanks are often outfitted with solid state lasers or CMB (coherent microwave beam) weapons and for a brief period before they were outlawed, our military had plane and helicopter mounted "neutron spotlight" weapons, which covered a wide area in high energy neutron radiation, killing anything caught under the invisible "spotlight" instantly.

    >>Also, The mars lava tunnels?

    Yeah, there's exactly one Mars hab and most of the really well offs are tired of the moon, so the hot real estate is Mars. It's a bitch to get materials there (we are not to the point of having industrialized Mars as we have the moon) so the current program involves sealing and pressurizing mars tubes. Most will be pretty straightforward hab style interiors but I've seen artists renditions of tubes where the interior is made to seem like a natural forested valley on Earth, with bright film display lining the top, making a convincing artificial sky.

    Not that I will ever in a million years have the proper dollars to live in a place like that, obviously.

    There are a few habs in south Africa funded and built by the UN, most of the natives live there. Those who wouldn't move into the habs might still be in the woods. The heat would kill them, you'd think, but there have been outsider settlements found in near- equatorial regions before so it's possible I guess. Some live in caves, some under dense forest canopy, whatever they can manage.

    Microsoft and Sony make chipsets and panels, like Nintendo. Microsoft also makes the only decent optics on the market for the handful of games that are worth playing that way.

    I've actually watched that on the paleofuturism net, and yes, sort of. We have pressure tubes, not for travel but for delivery of small purchases to your apartment within a cohab. We have robots obviously but not ones that look like that. The only humanoid ones are girlfriends and other companion bots. 90% of labor bots that we ever see are the little swarmbots and their carriers that clean/maintain the cohab systems.

    >>What do people use for portable music in the future?

    Nearly any implant plays music. There's this little implant smaller than a grain of rice that goes on your jaw or in your inner ear depending on the model that vibrates in such a way that you hear your music, and nobody else does. They typically have minimal onboard storage, they expect you to stream it from some other implant, like the phone implant I've got (for a while longer) in my left forearm.

    Less than a tera. Pretty sure even you have that kind of storage. If you're a serious collector you won't want to rely in what comes with the implant, you'll want something like a phone implant so you can browse your albums on the subdermal display (okay, bragging a little bit. It's really nice and I'm gonna miss it until they put the new one in) mine has 850 teras, but some have multiple petas. Nobody HAS that much music/movies/apps, it's just a status symbol.

    A song that is say, 5 minutes will typically be around 200 megs. But then recording today is much higher bitrate than you're accustomed to and most new songs are done in synchro, so even if you're just listening in stereo it needs to have all the extra audio data plus a unified version for less powerful players.

    >>What made battleships no longer obsolete? In what year?

    Railguns. By 2015 some enter service I think. Tension escalates with China and Russia and gets rapidly worse when the first stipend economies kick in and the resulting influx of cheap high quality goods begins to damage the economies of nations unable to match that standard of productivity. War is averted when the UN oversees a program to provide the first few habs and autolabor compounds to China so that they can begin the conversion to a stipend economy. Russia holds out for a decade or so and then converts only once it is on the brink of a second collapse.

    >>Oh, and how are the communists doing?

    There aren't any. There's just one economic system in developed nations now, the stipend economy. It's a slow transition and it was only recently that the last few communist nations in south asia switched over.

    Second one, it's called entanglement posting. You subscribe to the service and pay for stretches of a few hours posting time. Electron/photon pairs (depending what time you're posting to) are entangled and one sent through an intermittently opened tiny black hole, such that they are inserted as coherent impulses that form packetized information in whatever networks were common in that time.

    Every game has some degree of that to it. Even mainly singleplayer games allow you to do things like invite friends to play as bosses or cooperate to solve puzzles and so on. "MMORPG" is no longer a discrete genre, it's like "RPG" sort of, lots of games have "hints of RPG", similarly nearly every game has hints of MMORPG. There's always some way to make it social and involve other people. Oh and most regular sites have an mmo type of lounge attached to it. Like whatever "Home" is that everyone on /v/ is complaining about today and the last time I visited except there's actually shit to do in it.

    So basically if something that you future people did to change our past happened, you wouldn't be affected at all, but when we eventually progressed to that point, said change would have had an effect on stuff.

    Basically it's the confirmation of that one theory of time travel, like in Back to the Future. Changing an event doesn't change the future, it spawns an alternate timeline at the point of change.

    Which ones? Outsiders reportedly live around 30-50 years. Insiders live to 110 sans extension treatments. Well-offs have been known to live past 300, but they're a mess by then. Most opt for cold sleep when they close in on 100.

    I don't understand what you're getting at. Is there something I've said which doesn't make sense in light of something else I've said? Let's hear it so that I can clarify.

    In the last thread, you said that we haven't made any contact with a sapient alien race yet. Have we discovered any alien wildlife at all? I could have sworn NASA was talking a few years ago about telescopes that could peer onto the surfaces of other planets close enough to spot animals on the surface/in the sky.

    We have found living microbes on Mars. Once everyone got over the shock, people felt silly about thinking it was a big deal. Probably other microbes on planets with water/ice, but we've only put habs/outposts/resorts on the moon and mars so far.

    You said that some people have lived past 300, but the year you're living in is 2095. They would have to have been born in the late 1700s to pull that one off.

    A common misconception. Sentience is simply the ability to feel emotion and have some modicum of thought - sapience suggests more advanced abilities (judgment, foresight, etc).

    My bad, you're right, I misspoke. People from the future are no less prone to mistakes you know. What I meant is that with a full set of extension meds/surgeries you can expect to live to 300. That is the life EXPECTANCY for a fully treated person who is born today. 110 is the expectancy for someone who recieves no treatments, but is born today.

    "They would be a mess by then". There, fixed.

    I'm confused as to why you people seem to think that all human error will have been eliminated in less than 100 years.

    Oh, something I thought to ask you while I was at work today.

    Granted we know that your money doesn't function like how our money does, but what's the average 'wealth' in ye old 2095? Is everyone still mostly middle-class? Upper-middle-class? Upper-class with the Upper-Upper-class being the extremely richierich?

    In the dim light of the theatre few could see the face of the man who had stood up and objected so loudly as to shake the walls.

    "FAKERS! FRAUDS! PHONIES!" be hellowed, pointing to the actors onstage. "YOU'RE NOT PIRATES, NOR ARE YOU FROM THE CORRECT TIME PERIOD FOR THAT TO EVEN BE POSSIBLE!"

    The silence was deafening. Inside the leading actors head, considerations fought one another for a chance to be expressed. The play was free after all and he and the other actors had taken time out of their schedules to be there, to entertain the people. But to stop, to break the suspension of disbelief just because a single halfwit couldn't tolerate a bit of make believe would violate the spirit of theatre, of writing, of fantasy. No, he would not stop to lecture the man.

    The show must go on.
