"Scientists already have a precise knowledge of what the human body is made of, is it possible to develop a shot which basically annhilates anything in the body which is not supposed to be there?"

@jk wouldn't such a shot destroy itself? :thaenkin:

covid-19, genuine hacker news comment 

@a_breakin_glass @jk the shot that destroys all shots that do not destroy themselves

re: covid-19, genuine hacker news comment 

@a_breakin_glass @jk the shot paradox

covid-19, genuine hacker news comment 

@jk well that IS possible, it has the unfortunate side effect of also annihilating everything that is supposed to be there

@jk glad the top IQ mind lords of society at hacker news are lending their wisdom to this crisis

@jk oh yeah let me just run a diff and write a fucking patch for the human body on my desktop linux box

@jk wasn't this the logic behind teleportation in "The Fly"?

As in, "computers are stupid, you have to basically tell it exactly everything it needs to account for", eg, the whole person?

Didn't he get it wrong anyway? 😏

@jk that's pretty much how we deal with cancer "slash and burn"

@jk Someone has been watching too many "nanomachines, son" clips. :blobhyperthinkfast:

@jk I wonder if anyone has studied who is more ridiculous...HN or Quora

re: covid-19, genuine hacker news comment 

@jk

Scientists already have a precise knowledge of what the human body is made of

isn't that a Fullmetal Alchemist quote

re: covid-19, genuine hacker news comment 

@noiob @jk That's exactly what I thought of.

@jk I get a shot at the hospital and my piercings, tattoo and lunch all explode out of my body and splatter across the diagram of a skeleton on the opposite wall

covid-19, genuine hacker news comment 

@jk oh my god

hn rly is something else lol

covid-19, genuine hacker news comment 

@jk "hacker" "news"

@jk Fucking innovators will be the death of us.

@jk Hacker News is like the perfect illustration of the old maxim "a little knowledge is dangerous".

covid-19, genuine hacker news comment 

@jk yes, tequila

@jk give this dude a nobel prize! -_-

@jk I like to read the articles on there sometimes but the comments section really shows the bottom end of the dunning-kruger effect. There was an article last week about hospitals 3D-printing respirator parts and people were making suggestions about injection molding. Like I get that the average hn commenter probably has more 3D printing experience than the average healthcare worker, but come on? Don’t just assume they didn’t already think about it.

covid-19, genuine hacker news comment 

@jk we know what the body is made of, we can just 3d print new bodies that don’t have the disease and upload our brains into them.

@jk next week on show hn: hosting your own simulated consciousness in kubernetes droplets
