Assuming we stabilize humanity's genetic code and prevent further modification (whether by direct manipulation or eugenics) and further assume we do not intentionally deviate from the "human template" we can do some neat math,
The earth probably can't house more than a trillion in even the most generous estimations without extreme advances and some think we're already nearing a max of 10 billion. lets assume a generation of 20 years. The solar system has a few places we can potentially manipulate into being habitable: mars, venus, the asteroid belt, and europa. Let's be generous and assume they can all support another trillion each. This balances with the 20 year generation for 1 trillion people born in the solar system every 20 years. Now, lowball estimates say there's about 10^24 stars, lets be generous and say 10^30 and that they all are capable of fitting similar amounts of people as the solar system. We're about 10^100 years from the heat death and assuming (incorrectly) that as stars die off we'll find replacements and we'd be able to keep this many people alive until the heat death.
This is people in total. Compared with the possible people this means (assuming, unrealistically a random
selection of people at birth from all possibilities) that the genetic description of a person would occur on average
times.Even swapping out for low ball stuff, 10 billion people per earth, one earth for every quadrillion suns etc, we get of you.
The time to conquer space is miniscule in the face of 10^100 years, so it is ignored.

According to scientific research there exists an undeniable correlation between brain size and intelligence, those with a bigger physical brain very frequently will have higher intelligence. This is the result of many peer-reviewed studies and is an unbiased non-opinionated result of rigorous fact based study.

Also, on average, the physical size of the female brain is about 89% the size of the male brain this is also based upon fact-based and non-biased research conducted using the scientific method.

most bows and cross bows people make are kind of disappointing from what i can tell. the force the cross bow can deliver is not exclusively what determines the distance the arrow will travel even factoring in the arrows weight is insufficient. its why every one thinks mine will work well but it doesnt most of the time

speed of the arms is what determines the distance your arrow travels partially. many designs even historical ones have shitty speed and the distance isnt great. people watch movies and go well shit i just carve some wood and have this bad ass bow. no.wont even shoot 50 yards. a more modern version which was used for a cross bow had interlaced pullies in the arms and when its drawn back the pullies move apart from each other and when it fires they move closer which pulls in the line faster. in the 90s some guy made it. some types of composite bows work well with the offcenter pully wheels and classical recurve works ok

also your trigger is 3d printed may fail and cause a miss fire try to do it metal moving parts if you can. i made the following for something like that works fine for me. if the trigger fails the frame prevents misfire which the frame is poplar

Who’s been keeping up to date with The Dog soundboard craze? I just watched all the way though The what about bunny backlog on my Chinese malware app and I’m floored.

How much smarter is bunny compared to Stella? How much do you really reckon the dogs here understand about the world? Are some smart enough for being taught clever Hans tier math?
Do they know their humans are smarter than them? Do they know they have to eat or drink to survive? When Bunny inevitably gets all the Genius dog pootang for big brain puppies do you think it'd be a huge surprise to her that gets dozens of mini bunny’s coming out of her instead of a huge poo like she probably thought it was going to be? Cats are proven once again as being megatards lmao. Do you think Billi the cat will ever use her “?” button?

I want a zooiphile to use one to find out if his partner consents or asks for what they do together.

Holy shit do you actually think this is real? It’s obviously just the dog pushing random buttons, but they only show the video of the times that make sense.

your preconceived notion is not the same thing as a null hypothesis

like you OP but with a retarded and feminist 40 years old ugly woman instead of the cute anime girl. She's retarded but still strikes me with the hammer.
