    If you could improve on the design of the human body, what would you do?

    Myself, I would have designed a stronger lower back, and automatic nerve regeneration so that paralysis and muscle atrophy would be non existent. :)

    Interchangeable parts that grow on organ trees.

    How about all men being created equal with standardsized equipment? :)

    The hardware is solid, it's the firmware that needs work.

    How about 2000psi hydraulic pressure too? :)

    I would remove nipples from men. We don't need them.

    Yes, it might look funny at first, but we'll get used to it.

    Edit: Oh, and I'd add night vision. I'm tired of stubbing my toe late at night getting up to get a glass of water.

    Yow, I hope that comes with a way to avoid paper cuts!
    Combined with that 2000 PSI and paper cuts, those nipples could serve as a valuable self-defense mechanism.

    That's a good point - I agree. ;)

    Night vision would be sweet. :)

    That's not exactly what I had in mind, but at least we're keeping the thread going. ;)

    Seconded - I just had my little (and only) filling for a chipped tooth fall out after many years. Off to the dentist on Wednesday...

    Bugger - it feels funny.

    I vote for a new strain of bacteria to live in the gut which eats up all the potential fart-making gases.

    If you could choose between that and a new kind of flatulence that killed all harmful airborne bacteria, what would win?

    How about a DNA cell replication systems that didn't break down over time and cause cancer...

    ...a heart that doesn't wear out...

    ...non-degenerative cognitive functions...

    ...indestructible connective tissues...

    ...adamantium skeleton...

    ...the ability to leap buildings at a single bound...

    (yeah OK, that last ones probably useless)

    I assumed the rest of the predictable wishlists such as regeneration, optimised cognitive functions, schlong the size of an aircraft carrier, etc would be invariably mentioned.

    There's a lot of room for improvement on the human body. The main thing would be for a better way of repairing itself after catastrophic injuries like someone would sustain in a war or from some arrogant machinery.
