Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Say hi to this little fella.

jellyfish1247566ckl7.jpg

What is it?

It's a kind of jellyfish (well, technically, it's a hydrozoan) known as Turritopsis nutricula. And the population of these tiny guys is increasingly dramatically.

Why is it cool?

It is believed to be biologically-immortal through a process called transdifferentiation.

Immortal?

Every time one of these little guys has sex, it reverts to a juvenile state. That's right - they're born, they grow up, they fuck and they're kids again.

Think of the possibilities.

What if humans had this?

Think of the prostitutes.

They'd get paid and would become effectively immortal.

    You ever try and draw Falcor as a giant dong? No? It just ends up looking like a long cyclops.

    Won't actually help you. All plausible methods would be about genetically engineering embryos.

    They will find it a day before he dies, but it will take 48 hours to have any effects.

    Immortality is hardly news. The key to reversing entrophy was figured out ten trillion years from now, in 1956.
