Would you consider enhancing yourself through technological means?

I'd be first to sign up!
Sure, if it were safe.
I'd not be amongst the first, but I'm not opposed to the idea.
I'd prefer not to alter my mind and body, thanks.
Transhumanism is a terrible idea - it's unethical/not achievable/dehumanising.

All animals are nuclear.

If their cells didn't have nuclei then they'd be prokaryotes :y
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

The space viruses and nanite implants are neat I guess, but how about we talk about something a bit more realistic?

I'm sure you've seen the Google Glass stuff by now.

I'm not buying in on the hype yet, and I'm not saying this is transhumanism... yet.  But imagine this tech in a few years or decades.  Could have some very interesting results.

100% useless until someone invents machine translation that actually works.
Not a winner anymore.

Hey. For the time being Google Translate is good enough to at least get the gist of what something says even if the syntax is all jacked up.
