Humans are a lot cooler than most science fiction writers think. They always say look how boring humans are compared to an alien spices, when humans are more badass compared to them.
We put ethanol in our body, that his high enough construction to be a pesticide for fun.
We eat borderline toxic chemicals to season our food. We have to many teeth in our heads so we would put Metal in our mouths to straighten them out.
Something that dosnt initially kill us, we can heal and recover from.
@NameyMcNameFace, it’s why I’m convinced there are more intelligent species out there. They found us and do not want us to expand. Elon is their spy and he distracts and sets back the science with flamethrowers and memes
@NameyMcNameFace, humans are space orcs. Look it up.
@BigJohnson86, Had us in the first half, not gonna lie
@NameyMcNameFace, lots of animals can heal. Quite a few animals eat fermented fruit (ethanol). The seasoning is a thing is fairly unique though also the metal in the mouth one though I’d argue that’s not a positive.
@BearDaniels, most animals don’t have hospitals, and you hear about some people performing surgery on themselves and surviving. You are right about the ethonol. How is reshaping your teeth to be able to eat better not a positive?
@NameyMcNameFace, the fact we have to do it in the first place is not positive. In nature If you cannot eat properly you will be more likely to die. Ergo most animals don’t have this problem. Most animals also aren’t completely useless as infants. I think your main argument is that humans are cool because we are smart, but there are a lot of cons to that pro. Modern humans are poor survivors in any other setting other than the ones they’ve built and I think that’s why most science fiction writers don’t think they are cool.
@BearDaniels, animals are born with biological disadvantages just like humans. They just die earlier but the fact they we can work through most of those things means as a species are better. There are a lot of good things babies can do. There’s a lot of things humans can animals. What do you mean we are poor structures. We are at the top of the food chain everywhere in the world. We can survive and build a socity in the middle of the desert or in Antarctic. No other aniaml can do that. A simple broken leg is a death sentence for most species. We heal rapidly, some athletes recover from a torn muscle in the same season. We developed surgery long before we devolved any kind of Anesthesia p. We use solar radiation to darken our skin to attract mates. We climb mountains for fun. We invented dogs. Etc. Humans are awesome and should be respected in sci-fi.
@NameyMcNameFace, most of that is a result of intelligence and infrastructure rather than human physiology.

The first pepper mutated with a spice taste in its body, dont even know that he have a spicy taste nor the up and down its bringing to its off springs
@Chick33n, and it persisted because it improved seed dispersal and cut down on seed destruction. Birds don't taste spicy, so it created a natural system where they were eaten by animals with a high dispersal range, instead of rodents which would digest and destroy the seeds. Larger range also means less self competition and more population growth
@wynaut, because science
