So while discussing birth on the chat, a thought came to mind; There's a lot of potential for human experimentation. I'm not sure if there'd be a benefit as to finding out the answers to the following. May just be out of human curiosity, although there may as well be some benefits to it. Some ideas on how we can experiment on humans: Spoiler: Seeing how long a female can go without reaching menopause A woman is born with all the eggs she'll have in her lifetime. These eggs are released during every menstruation cycle she has. Menopause is when a woman runs out of her eggs, therefore is unable to (naturally) birth any more children. This usually happens around the age of 50. I believe that when a woman gets impregnated, for the 9 months she's pregnant, she won't release any eggs. Theoretically, as soon as a woman is sexually mature, she could get pregnant immediately, wait the 9 months, give birth, then get pregnant again immediately, and repeat. Assuming she is sexually mature at the age of 10, and the expected age of her menopause is 50, that would be 40 years of giving eggs each month. 40*9 (nine being the number of months she doesn't have a period because of her pregnancy) = 360. If she was able to live long enough, she would theoretically reach menopause at the age of 370 (plus the 10 years before sexually mature). Spoiler: Seeing how long a human could live The life expectancy of a human is going up. As a neat experiment, I'd like to see how long a human from this time could live. First, there'd need to be some genetic modifications to ensure that the test subject is healthy. Then, we'd need to feed it 100% chocolate for the rest of its life, and make sure it stays fit and healthy. And voila, you have a long-living human. Spoiler: Seeing the effects of keeping a human in a coma Not sure if this is fiction or not, but I've seen from various TV shows that being in a coma stops/delays body growth. I'd think that to keep a human alive for as long as possible, you'd need to put it into a medically induced coma, and rewake it when desirable. Any comments, ideas, or suggestions are appreciated.
