We may have another "ocean" to add to the world map -- only this one is hidden hundreds of miles beneath our planet's surface. A new study suggests that a hidden "ocean" is nestled in the Earth's mantle some 400 miles beneath N...

Some enterprising folks are figuring out how to get pets for their pets.

http://scienceblogs.com/tetrapodzoology/2009/07/03/tiny-frogs-and-giant-spiders/
The recent discovery that some Asian microhylid frogs frequent the dung piles of elephants has gotten these obscure little anurans into the news, possibly for the first time ever. Microhylids – or narrow-mouthed frogs – are not exactly the superstars of the frog world: they’re only really familiar to specialists, despite the fact that (as…

But then you have potential ethical questions: How much does this widen the gap between haves and have-nots? And further, what if people use this or other cybernetic enhancements to stretch far beyond the capability of the human body (such as it is)?
Is this placing a value judgment on the quality of life of people who can't walk without mechanical assistance?
Should the culture adapt to include disabled people, or the people adapt to the culture, and how does this technology bridge that gap?

The same thing we do every night, Pinky... try to take over the world.
Introduction
Opt-in circles: I will add you to my following circles at your request.

Games - You like reading about games, discussing game themes or mechanics, want random invitations to game nights, and might be interested in playtesting.

Food - You want to read my restaurant reviews, cooking ideas, and probably random dinner gatherings as well (assuming my budget stays healthy).
