    ThTh6: I’ve extrapolated this out and right around human beings having a temperature of 90 degrees, society changes dramatically. Luckily, it happens right around the time that Global Warming kicks in in earnest so we’ll have defenses for the environmental changes, at least.Report

    ThTh3- Musk’s space x is great. It’s amazing he can do something well while seeming like a generic megalomaniac doofus billionaire the rest of the time. He must have hired well for Space X. Though we never hear about the people who actually do the work so i’m guessing he pays really well and makes them agree to never steal a photon of his spotlight.Report
