Seriously, an animal with a mild case can live a normal life.

FC, lets assume it was a mild case, and thus effectively a regular octopus - what should have been done differently?

bang head on rock to kill - check
ask chef to cook - check
chef cooks and tourist eats - check

Hmm "would you say the same thing for a human?"

would you talk to an octopus?

So many arguements... What FireCat is saying is this: Would you exclude a human for have 6 fingers?

Then she's saying the same thing with the Extra-Leg-Octapus.
There might be a baby that is abnormal, which might be better for the human race, so how does one know what abnormalities are good or bad? 6 Legs might be better for the octapus, just saying.

"Biologists say the six-legged hexapus is the result of a natal abnormality as opposed to a new species."

Last line in the article, and probably the most important, lol.
Just as I thought.

Nature knows which mutations are good and which are bad.
The good mutations survive, thats the trick.

would you talk with a mouse that you are about to eat? (but are playing with, because you are a cat)
Maybe?! hehe Well, depends if the cat is hungry. But not every cat play with the food. You see see Btw: Cats can be particularly picky eaters. LOL So no mouse..........

@Tom:
OMFG THIS IS HORRIBLE!
Looks like the worst science fiction right there! Just make genetically altered humans so that everybody will live in peace! Or just cut off one miniscule little part of their brain and everything will be fine!
Best-Seller novel material right there.

Yes, I would. Genetically, the human race would be FAR better off without such conditions, which, as you are probably not aware in consideration of who I'm talking to, there is a significant amount of research into avoiding, most of which comes to the conclusion that drinking alcohol or otherwise abusing such drugs while pregnant can avoid. Which tells me that the parent of this octopus was probably not a very healthy octopus in all likelihood.

It might have become a new species with six tentacles :( I don't think there's anything like that yet, is there?


No, not that I'm aware of, just like there isn't a human-like race missing a fucking arm or leg.

A few of them live near the park where I do my morning jogs. They get special parking spots at the supermarket.

OMFG Varine...
Well, sure but it doesn't always "cause of what you saying.! " There are other factors, too!

    Crazy how much 3d printing has come in the last few years. Sad that it's not as easily modifiable though
  • Varine Varine:
    I bought an Ender 3 during the pandemic and tinkered with it all the time. Just bought a Sovol, not as easy. I'm trying to make it use a different nozzle because I have a fuck ton of Volcanos, and they use what is basically a modified volcano that is just a smidge longer, and almost every part on this thing needs to be redone to make it work
  • Varine Varine:
    Luckily I have a 3d printer for that, I guess. But it's ridiculous. The regular volcanos are 21mm, these Sovol versions are about 23.5mm
  • Varine Varine:
    So, 2.5mm longer. But the thing that measures the bed is about 1.5mm above the nozzle, so if I swap it with a volcano then I'm 1mm behind it. So cool, new bracket to swap that, but THEN the fan shroud to direct air at the part is ALSO going to be .5mm to low, and so I need to redo that, but by doing that it is a little bit off where it should be blowing and it's throwing it at the heating block instead of the part, and fuck man
  • Varine Varine:
    I didn't realize they designed this entire thing to NOT be modded. I would have just got a fucking Bambu if I knew that, the whole point was I could fuck with this. And no one else makes shit for Sovol so I have to go through them, and they have... interesting pricing models. So I have a new extruder altogether that I'm taking apart and going to just design a whole new one to use my nozzles. Dumb design.
  • Varine Varine:
    Can't just buy a new heatblock, you need to get a whole hotend - so block, heater cartridge, thermistor, heatbreak, and nozzle. And they put this fucking paste in there so I can't take the thermistor or cartridge out with any ease, that's 30 dollars. Or you can get the whole extrudor with the direct driver AND that heatblock for like 50, but you still can't get any of it to come apart
  • Varine Varine:
    Partsbuilt has individual parts I found but they're expensive. I think I can get bits swapped around and make this work with generic shit though

    I think we need to add something to the bottom of the front page that shows the Headline News forum that has a link to go to the News Forum Index so people can see there is more news. Do you guys see what I am saying, lets say you read all the articles on the front page and you get to the end and it just ends, no kind of link for MOAR!
