Oh right, for actual WTF yet on-topic material, I did once see a couple of amusing debates over whether vegans could consume um...  Human materials.  Like biting fingernails!  And, you know, placentas.  And other stuff, use your imagination.

Yum, delicious human mucus.

Haven't been able to actually finish a multiplayer match in FighterZ in two days, despite numerous attempts, because the game either spontaneously disconnects you moments after entering a lobby for no reason, or disconnects you while you're in the middle of a match, again, for no reason. At this point I've collected over 100 screenshots (I think) that are literally nothing but pictures of connection errors.

The servers for this game are a fucking cruel joke and the "maintenance", in some strange twist of fate, actually managed to make it worse.

Except for the Xbox One version of the game, which is apparently A-OK now. Good for them I guess.

Kidding aside, the overwhelming consensus appeared to be "no, there's no harm being done".

Watching some gameplay of... pokken tournament dx, apparently. Switch intermittently 3D fighting game. All I can think is that this is the most evil looking pikachu I've ever seen in official material. Little yellow shit looks like it's there specifically to beat the everloving hell out of anything that can't run away fast enough, and thoroughly enjoying every sadism infused minute of it. It's like the only two facial modes the bastard has is rape and murder.

Even what seems to be its friggin' idle animation is a sort of "hey, watch how violently I'm about to fuck this thing's face" sort of expression. Cheerful with a side of wink wink nudge nudge I bet this guy's spine would look great mounted on my wall.

It's somewhere between uncanny and unsettling, with a degree of impressiveness directed both to whoever animated the apparently homicidal vermin and whoever convinced the project leads to let them go ahead with prison escapee pikachu, late of death row for the mass murder of dozens of intelligent beings, presumably only mostly non-human.

I'm like 90% sure being unconscious around that particular pikachu isn't much if any better than just being dead. I've not seen many rodents expressing evil intent so clearly, and death is but one horror among a great many. Gods know lightning spitting rat is a combination allowing for a few not so easily achieved by more conventional means.

While we're at it, we should GMO humans to make Vitamin C. Humans + chimps are some of the only mammals that lost the vitamin-C gene, because we eat so much fruit anyway, genetic drift did away with it. It's still there, but mutated. We can patch that, and turn it back on, using something like CRISPR to spread it. Which would be a massive boon to public health, but also reduce environmental strain: making sure everyone has a diet rich in nutrients is environmentally costly. We should make humans self-sufficient for all nutrients that we could make ourselves.

Yes we should. But not just Vitamin C. If we find the gene for producing it, we could make humans that can produce it. This includes all the other vitamins as well. Then we would only require energy, anything we have not found the gene for and material for making the stuff we need.

We already know genes responsible for the ability to secrete spider silk.

Spider silk:

The problem is not expressing the protein. That was done decades ago.

The problem is that spider silk is also a mechanical process, and there is no substitute for the nano-structures inside the spider's spinneret. These structures apply special pressure on the protein, which locks the units together like a zipper, which is what gives the silk its unique properties.

We are getting better at producing cultured tissue though, so perhaps one day we can have a "sheet" of spider tissue that is just covered in spinnerets, that we can feed a nutrient solution to, and draw silk from, in a continuous process.  However, we are not there yet.

For vitamin C with the citrate cycle:

We would need the supporting metabolic pathway for that too, and depending on how long the human animal has drifted from having that ability, it may be more work than you realize to turn that pathway back on again. (and there might be secondary consequences from doing so too.)

Spider-Man, Spider-Man,
His silk don't come from a can!

Rubs a nipple, out it flies!
Look Out!
Here comes the Spider-Man.

Heh, I wasn't really going for Spider-Man specifically, but I see how it's the obvious train of thought.

As a segue, reading the early Spiderman comics I learnt that Parker doesn't actually create web himself, he uses a super glue material squirted from bottles in his sleeves. Some later iterations of Spiderman apparently has it as a super power which makes more sense to me.

I disagree. Shooting web from his hands is dumb. Maybe shot it from his butt if would be okay.
