So far, humanity's all time high score for living is 122 years and 164 days.
That's using the old fashion technique of health, wealth and happiness.

What I want to know is, if we cheated nature a bit with current or future technology, how long could we live?

Well at least in a trivial case of where the normal biological function of the body replaces every molecule with another one several time of the lifetime of the organism it's not an issue.

It's quite a foreign feeling seeing posts like this on the futurism board...

Anyway, once you transfer your brain into a completely cybernetic body (which is the obvious implication), it's just a matter of maintaining the brain. So what do we have to do to supply the brain with what it needs and how long can we do that? I mean for all we know you could live forever but being in an unfamiliar shell might give a person some sort of debilitating mental disorder.

> what you often see with the people that grow really old, is that they don't stop engaging and activating themselves after retirement age. They usually either keep working or keep themselves engaged with a hobby or interest into their old age...

This is very true. All the old people I know that you wouldn't immediately classify as "old" (despite being as old as 80) work, or are members of neighborhood associations or some sort of clubs or are avid bikers or swimmers or the like. You can't live forever doing nothing. Boredom kills in many ways, most indirect.

Does a machine that uses 500W emit more em radiation shit than a device that only uses 250W? also where is the source of the radiation, is it through the power outlet where its plugged in, and if it is, the further away from the power outlet one is the less exposure to radiation one will experience?

Best regards, Pete from smallville

>>79534 I do partially agree with >>79535... but we also know that school sucks at conveying information. Internet kooks don't exactly help in this matter either.

Now, EM radiation is basically anything from longwave radio, microwaves, through visible light to gamma radiation....
But still it's hard to say whether a 500W device will generate more EM radiation than a 250W device. Wattage itself is a measure of how much *energy* is released. Energy in itself can be released in other forms than EM radiation, like kinetic energy.

In some cases it's true, A stronger lightbulb, radio transmitter or microwave oven will release more EM radiation than a weaker one - on the other hand, the very purpose of those are to generate EM radiation (microvave radiation, radio signals and visible light respectively).

Compare, however, two very different devices, and you'll see it's not entirely true.
A car engine, for example will likely emit less EM radiation than a microwave, as its primary function is to generate kinetic energy. Car engine power can be measured in the range of kilowatts (thousands of watts) compared to the microwave oven, which is usually 1 kW at most.

Now, even a relatively weak car engine outputs around 100kW - a hundred times more than the microwave oven, probably 80% of that goes to moving the car, while 20% is released as heat (which can be released either as EM radiation or be conducted though various materials eg. air, water or metal). Comparatively less energy goes to generating EM radiation in the car engine than in the microwave oven, as again ,the purpose of the latter is to actually generate EM radiation of a certain frequency in order to excite the water molecules in the food.

>em radiation shit
Don't fall into that ballpark... our universe is dominated by EM radiation - you'll never be free from it :)

They explicitly state it's granite though usually cold cut uses iron filings.

It's not super fancy really just clever use of fairly well established technology. The really clever bit is that if you have a compartment which is hot but out of oxygen you can punch in and use the mist to cool the compartment down (because all the water evapourates, and because it comes out as a fine mist it does so quickly) and so when you open it up, reintroduction of oxygen doesn't cause the fire to restart (as you've now removed another part of the "triangle")

I feel that is appropriate to the topic. nb though because I knew all this.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Protein_primary_structure
>Protein primary structure is the linear sequence of amino acids in a peptide or protein. By convention, the primary structure of a protein is reported starting from the amino-terminal end to the carboxyl-terminal end. Protein biosynthesis is most commonly performed by ribosomes in cells. Peptides can also be synthesized in the laboratory. Protein primary structures can be directly sequenced, or inferred from DNA sequences.

I started a thread on /spooky/ asking for any evidence of the paranormal or supernatural.

Instead all I got was a bunch of personal attack and people babbling nonsense and presenting it as truth. Then when shown they are incorrect with verifiable data rather than pseudoscience they resort to personal attacks again. They and pretty much all other magical thinkers take any sort of challenge to their beliefs as a personal attack.

I was at a party a few months back and some girl was talking about how she went to some yoga guy who does "laying on of hands". Which involves doing yoga while a dude puts his hands on your body and makes weird noises. Supposedly doing this achieves any number of effects from healing wounds, curing depression and other supposed boons.
not arguing the therapeutic effects of yoga just the laying on of hands part
I tried to understand what she was explaining to me by asking questions. Like asking her what was actually happening because it made 0 sense to me. Instead she started insulting me for being closed minded and shit.

Also in real life I live in the US south. Where people who think the world is 6000 years old is the norm.

Needless to say I deal with people who use magical thinking on a regular basis.
They are 100% willing to reap the benefits of science and the technology that comes with it until it conflicts with some myth or story about ghosts or some shit some one told them. Then all reason and logic go out the window.

Why do so many people especially in the us reject verifiable facts over what feels good? I went to the same public schools as them, I was also raised in a religious household (jewish, although I'm no longer religious). The only difference is that I chose the rational answer.

Idk, maybe I'm just a giant nerd who paid too much attention in school. It's frustrating living among all these science denialists.

Also all of the above isn't a rant about religion. You can be religious and a realist, I have several christian friends who understand their religion and all others aren't meant to be taken literally. I actually respect people who can strike the balance between their religion and what the real world shows them.

Basically if a person is affected by nearby electric equipment or where stuff is plugged in an outlet, are these waves coming from the wall socket and through the extension adapter as well. Can these waves be minimized as in the B example by plugging in a 20m long extension cord in a wall socket from another room. Will the EMF waves only come from that wall socket or will it also be in the cord? by analyzing the picture you know what i want to accomplish / figure out so how would you go about plugging something in while minimizing the radiation?

But that poster isn't assuming anything. He's just conveying a consensus reached by scientists after many experiments and a slow refining of models of the physical world.

Common sense and assumptions are often wrong when it comes to physical minutiae. That's why we have to run experiments and trust data, not human intuition.
