hmmm, maybe I missed some where. kinda explains the comment you make about using
moon kids as guinea pigs for adults.

'Moustaches' are not uncommon in the Gundam series, although the Turn-A moustage
is much more striking. The RX-78, 178, ZZ and nu (unsure aboutthat one) have
black moustache etched or painted on the face plate. Z didn't really have one,
but I tended to think the 'non-standard' face plate with pointy buts which hangs
out to the side of the mouth make it appear like tose long moustaches that have
grown out of control (think Rip van Winkle with a moustache,but no beard).

Man if I could have a moustache and a big bushy ZZ Top beard like. It must be an
Asian male fantasy or somethng. I know I have just given up growing one out of
frustration. My god some women have more facial hair than I do...something's not
right, I'm a grown man for crying out loud! wrote:

Oh, I have heard of the 'general' concept before, not quite as you have explained
(reproduction?). So that is what nanotech is all about.

well I hope they don't go over the top with the 'invicibility'.
