Message 62479 - Posted: 5 Oct 2014, 14:09:06 UTC

The brand new pheasant hunting season is about to start so off we go...

It is now time for another run of this popular past-time.

Simple rules:

•Post in this thread, anything coherent with legitimate words.

•Stay within the message board rules.

•Empty posts are invalid towards winning.

•You must wait for someone else to post before you can post again, any and all multiple posts are invalid towards winning.

•Have FUN.

Rules Subject to change at moderators discretion without notice

The winner will be the last person to have posted, when I have time to check the thread, after one of these events:

•A specific date and/or time occurs

•A specific number of posts have been made

•I get tired of whining about who is the winner :)

•An event I have chosen occurs (doesn't occur).

Sorry there are no physical prizes, only the satisfaction you played. :)

(How could I not post that? :D
I guess I should say something more coherent than that. How about, Aging is seven things, one of which is the loss of cells, some of which aren't replaced by the body. This causes a series of pathologies over time, depending on where it happens. Its Parkinsons when it happens in the brain, heart-disease in the heart, etc. The treatment (rejuvenation biotechnology) is to replace the cells with stemcell therapy. After which, you will technically be younger than you were previously. The six other types are no less reversible, and you can read about it in the book that you will read cover to cover very quick: ISBN 9780312367077.

I Ponder the meaning of life, considering the possibility that at some point, we'll stop dying from aging completely (and its diseases, cancer, cardiovascular disease and all the rest which only kill elderly). Then the purpose of life will be to endlessly reinvent oneself, whereas most people would say the meaning of life now is to procreate and enjoy life until it ends. Is it not so that the meaning of life then is to save people from dying of loss of cells and the six other things, so that they can then live until it is possible to endlessly reinvent themselves?

Try to follow this! :P

And we have a winner! It's Phil!

The current game ended at the close of pheasant hunting season here is Minnesota. Phil has the last post, so he has the honor and privilege of running the next game.

Congratulations Phil
