I am always genuinely surprised how staunchly humans hold to a biological gender binary, given that there are so many factors pointing to this not being the case.

    And this showing up, not only in genitalia, but also in chromosomes, hormones, etc. I am also surprised, because if people hold to the theory of evolution, and it is generally held that all creatures descended from creatures in the water, then how an ocean with such a diverse expression of genitalia and biological gender can produce solely biological gender binaries is beyond me. For biological sex is not only for reproduction but for pleasure. For example, the clitoris of the vagina is solel...

    ...solely for pleasure. So, why is it then assumed that humans do not share the same variety in gene expression and biological sex that other creatures do? I can only come to the conclusion that it is due to humans attraction to tradition and easy answers. A true scientist goes where the evidence arises, and the evidence is pointing in a direction that many do not seem to feel comfortable going in. Sad.

    I agree. I think in the future, humanity will gradually move away from strict man/woman genders. There will still be gender, but it will be less binary, more like a spectrum. Biotechnology and future advances in medicine, nanotech, and other fields will allow people to change their physical bodies, allowing them to define themselves and not be strictly beholden to what they were born as. I hope I live to see such a world, but regardless, I think it's inevitable.

Not to be a hypochondriac, but I seem to have most, if not all of the early symptoms of multiple sclerosis.

    I was worried I was getting Parkinsons' during the fall because it apparently runs in my family. Turns out it was just carpal tunnel from too much animating and poor form when doing push-ups, heh. Hm.

    Get yourself checked.

I'm too pessimistic for my own good. I'm transgender (male-to-female) and while I'm not ugly or anything, I definitely don't "pass" as female, and our culture is not forgiving of that. I get depressed thinking that i'll just live the rest of my life hating my body and how I look. If I was more optimistic, I could believe in biotech, nanotech, genetics, A.I., etc., but I'm too gloomy and skeptical, and feel like I was born too early.

    That's the spirit, MK! Rather than looking at the negative, you should be looking at and acting on the positive! :)

    Also, if this will make you feel better (I doubt that it will, but what the heck), I would like to point out that I actually *envy* you for being a trans-woman. Seriously.

    That sucks. I know transgenders can wallow in isolationism. All I can say is you can be the most beautiful person in the world and still struggle with loneliness and the ugliest person in the world and genuinely thankful and happy. Enjoy your life maybe move to a place where you can find a supportive network of friends.

    wow... incredible! What a curious animal. And now I know what a group of marine biologists in the throes of collective nerdgasm sounds like. Though to be fair I would react in a similar way, who wouldn't.

    Amazing footage! I have been part of a collective biology nerdgasm when we spotted a Jaguar with cubs in the Guyana rainforest. Although, we had to whisper, unlike marine biologists that can be as loud as they please!

I feel so old being born in the 90's, I'm so envious of the kid's born in the 2000's and 2010's because of all the shit they're going to experience in the next few years. I know I still have many youthful years ahead of me, but it's not like we have much to look forward to besides new ipods and shinier oculus rift goggles. Why'll these younger kids are going to have full virtual reality simulations and possibly hover boards.

    Tell me about it: I was born in December 1983 and am currently 31 years old. I'm also a trans woman, so my teens and 20s pretty much sucked ass. And because I was born too early for life extension, FIVR, etc., the rest of my life is going to be a hard struggle. At least I was born in the first world, though. Think of people less fortunate than you and try to make the world a better place for them and people who come after you.

    This is something called ceviche.It can be made with various kinds of seafood usually a particular fish (whose name I forgot), shrimp, or crab (I prefer shrimp). Other common ingredients: avocado, onion, tomatoes, cilantro, cucumbers, and lime. The citric acid in the lime cooks the meat so there is no need for heating and it is great on a warm summer day. A personal favorite variety is changing out...

    the tomatoes for mango. You can eat it with chips, spread it on a tostada, or have it plain if you're looking for something a bit healthier. Great with alcohol on the beach during the summer.
