What has this place come to? I'll take my reds, and I want more. Today is the day I finally lost my last glimpse of hope, the content died long ago, but today, I finally see that the community I knew and loved has departed as well. I'll be seaking refuge at the random board from now on.

Shut the **** up you dramatic bitch, the community doesn't act all prim and proper so arseholes like you can feel special. Everyone's different, we don't cater to you. I've been here for 6 years and I still don't care how people express themselves. He's allowed to say it's funny if he wants, go **** a cactus you pretentious cunt.

You know, I've been wondering for a long time now: when will we reach our limits, physically? I know that newer clothing and technical stuff like that has drastically improved our performances, but how long until we reach the limit of physicality? Or mental ability as well, for that matter. And what the **** do we, as a species, do when we do reach the ultimate limit? Let the Olympics carry on, to reach that limit, so we might see what it might be.

We've probably just about reached our physical limits so far as the Olympics go. These days people train daily from childhood to reach Olympic level skill, and science helps plenty too.

But look at the winner of the mens 1500 m freestyle, he beat his own record by a good couple seconds. Who's to say that people can push further? Nothing is ever completely perfect.

I'll admit that I don't really pay attention to the Olympics, but was it HIS record or the world record?
There likely will still be world records broken, but by less and less (such that they are insignificant). There's just only so much you can train within the 30 or so years before your body begins to lose physical capability.

True there will probably never be complete "perfection" there will always be those who have potential to set new records, but effectively we have probably reached our limit. Someone with great genetics who trains for 20 years might edge out another quarter second, but I would still consider that effectively the physical limit.

Actually I just checked Wikipedia and he also broke the world record (previously held by him).

Though if you look at the world records for swimming in general, in the 50 years since the first one was recorded, the record improved by five minutes (22 to 17). However in the past 40 years, the record has only improved by a single minute (15:31-14:31).

Even if we haven't quite reached the limit, we are getting very close.

its all nice people talking about genetic manipulation and stuff, to do with overcoming any limit to our physical selves, but the thing is, theres only so much you can do with that. i mean we can only work with what weve got in terms of genetics. and to be honest, we dont know most of it. in terms of what genes do and ****, we may have noted down the genome, but we dont know what most of it does. i mean most of our DNA isnt even coding man. But for now, physics is holding us back. and yes in most of the sports now the upper limit is being reached because like people have been getting stronger and more musclier and all that yeh, but it gets to a point where the amount of force you can put out with all your muscle isnt going to be as helpful, as all your muscle will just get in the way. Its not to say that records wont keep getting broken, **** like thats and impossibility, people will progress. but just very much slower now.

as for our mental state. we are improving, but there is a theory that autism is the next step in human evolution. theres been a ridicoulous rise in it. its been theorised as such because, we live in a world were technology has becoming our prosthetics, and autism allows you to more readily interact with technology that surrounds us. this is thought to be due to the lowering of social interaction, especially prevalent amongst boys.there is also no need for social interaction really anymore. in the future (faaaar future), if the trends carry on the way they do, then autism will be a majority, but it wont be as a problem...people in general seem to thing people with autism are diseased or something. but yeh, basically our children (especially the males) are more likely to be autistic. its pretty cool, i think theres a TED talk about it somewhere and there must be some articles around. itd be better if you could read some peer-reviewed stuff and not something from some ********* site. especially not any news agency (they tend to misinterpretate).

"Sometimes I wonder if there are things we'll never explain.
Ya know, like what if we did answer all of the questions, ya know.
Would we live on forever, happy with our triumph over ignorance,
or is ignorance just a common enemy that once destroyed would leave our species without a reason to carry on.
I guess it doesn't matter what the answer is, because even if supreme knowledge did bring about the end of our species,
the thought of obtaining it just would keep us together.

ya know, people will always look up at the sky and just wonder why were here"

If we get to the point where people approve of the genetic engineering of humans, then we won't have any physical limits.

I don't think that will happen soon. I, for one, think that genetical engineering of humans is extremely dangerous, not to mention easily exploitable for racist purposes. I mean, what with designer babies and all, we have succeeded in creating what Josef Mengel failed to do: the ability to produce blonde, blue-eyed kids.
