Why Carmen Dislikes Homestucks - By Uberwren, the novel.
Okay, you know what. Your face.
I use to follow Homestuck but after boot camp, I gave up keeping up with it. Andrew Hussie updates it way to frequently. Homestuck is the only comic I complain about updating to fast. You know how rabbits in cartoons multiply quickly enough to fill the entire screen with their progeny within minutes? Homestuck takes that to 11. Homestuck is rabbits on steroids!
Anyway, I get what your coming from and kinda feel the same way a little. I understand it a little more cause I did followed it before, but it takes a little to much effort to first get into, then get up to speed with everyone else.
maybe one day I’ll get back into it. Perhaps much latter in life, when when I have much more time on my hands (and Hussie stops updating it!)
I never understood the “alien/human hybrid” thing in conspiracy theories and science fiction.
The genetic structure of an extraterrestrial (if it even had DNA and not some other undiscovered self replicating molecule) would be so radically different that no viable offspring would even be possible. You can’t just have two completely different species mate and expect a hybrid child to come out of that. Genetics just doesn’t work that way.
Now, I’m no geneticist, but I’m pretty sure that a giraffe and an elephant doesn’t make a giraphant or an elephaffe. Yes, you can cross humans and chimpanzees and get an offspring. A humanzee is possible. I don’t know who the hell would do that nor how healthy the child would be, but it would be possible. But that’s only because of how extremely close a chimp’s DNA is to us (greater then 95% similarity), due to the fact that they’re our closest living relatives. Every animal hybrid that has ever been created were only possible due to the great similarities in the DNA structure of their parent’s species, and even then, most of them turned out to be sterile and couldn’t produce offspring of their own. So you won’t have star children walking around with distant alien ancestors
That said, I suppose you could physically take out certain specific genes of an alien and place them directly into a human DNA strand, but that would only work if said alien had DNA to begin with. If a sapient lifeform evolved on a planet light years from Earth, It would stand to reason that everything about them would probably be different from anything you would find here on Earth. That includes their genetic molecules. Different environments and different circumstances breed different results.
That’s not to say that DNA found on other planets is impossible. I believe I’ve read somewhere that we have found amino acids in meteorites, which suggests that the rise of life on our planet was due to panspermia. It just means that it is highly improbable.
In short: the whole idea about human/alien children is bullshit!
So this is an absolutley brilliant idea! Just attach the plug on to a window and it will harness solar energy. A small converter will convert it into electricity which can be freely used as a plug when you are in the car, on a plane or outside.
Love this design and I really think it has a great potential.
This is fucking genius.
i dont think anyone understands how badly i need this
