Quote from: llearch n'n'daCorna on February 24, 2007, 04:01:41 PMHmm. The breathing thing... seems odd. Sure, a mechanical blower is going to be more efficient, but... there's a lot of other complexity involved.Like your diaphragm, for example. And the inter-costal muscle groups, etc, and the way you need to blow air across the vocal cords - which, in order to sound normal, is going to require phrase groups, and breathing in between them......

Quote.. then there's the obvious dealing with touching things, whilst not having the same senses as he used to. Like, say, picking up a raw egg without breaking it... And the, ah, equally obvious, "deal with a pretty lady cuddling up to you".Let's not forget coping with wind. Or balance.
QuoteOr integration issues. Or, say, catching a cold, and what effect that has on the rest of the system (if you're using a mechanical blower, it'll blow out a constant stream of mucus.... or just get much noisier when the nasal passages contract... Can you say "steam whistle"? I knew you could...)
Quote from: Drake Manaweilder on February 24, 2007, 09:11:17 PMIf memory serves, the average human body wares out about 10-50 thousand blood cells a second. (I could be wrong though) Sense ol' bucket butt dosen't have as much I would imagine he would need to get rid of the warn out stuff and get it replaced by new stuff quite often. My guess would be perhaps once every two-three hours. I'm aware that odds are the cell "death rate" is likely not as much in his case, but still enough to be somewhat of a threat.

Quote from: llearch n'n'daCorna on March 18, 2007, 10:55:27 AMThis assumes that the skull is still the seat of the intellect, which, given the various redesigns, is reasonably optional. ... unless, of course, I just gave something away... Oops... ;-]

Quote from: Drake Manaweilder on March 30, 2007, 05:13:50 PMInteresting... I can't place why, but I really like this one.
QuoteOne thing though: Quote"Don't try to speak yet. I've had to transfer you to that other body I've mentioned on occasion. It's going to be quite a jump."Bit of a problem there... unless it's an expression that means he'll be suprised when he learns what he is.
Quote from: llearch n'n'daCorna on April 08, 2007, 08:37:44 AMHmm. Some confusion in the early stages as to who's saying what. Having a Johan Cross on screen, and Johan Cross watching it, is just asking for someone to get confused.
