Trust the Japanese to build a robotic exoskeleton that's not only useful but also looks REALLY DAMN COOL.

Seriously, it looks like something out of an anime and responds to nerve signals instead of actual muscle movement. AND it increases your strength by a factor of ten. That is EPIC.

I'd love to travel back to the Victorian era, provided I could be wealthy, white, and male. Mostly the male bit, actually--any time travel past about 1920 or so and us girls are boned.

That said, the spirit of the Victorian era, when there were vast expanses of the world left to explore and when it looked like modern science could fix anything if you just gave it a year or two, is something I'd love to experience firsthand. The industrial pollution, exploitation and destruction of native populations, and brutal oppression of the poor, not so much, but man, science was Science with a capital S back then. What I wouldn't give to meet Nikola Tesla, even if he was batshit insane! And the science fiction back then was incredible--Jules Verne was still writing, Poe tried his hand at science fiction a time or two, and magazine serials abounded. ♥

In other news, nothing sucks more than biting into your lunch, getting your teeth stuck, and discovering after you pry them loose that your PowerBar of Laziness +1 expired in 2006.

You know, it's been nearly a year. I'm starting to wonder if it's time to forgive mitochondria. )
