Allow me to rebond on MatPat's latest Logan theory and give my personal insights on its conclusion, from someone who didn't skip biology class (this is an insight and not a complaint): - As many were quick to point out, Logan's only-adamantium skeleton wouldn't cause any health issue since adamantium by its very nature cannot corrode. No, the real problem with having an adamantium skeleton and no bones is the lack of bone narrow, which is the source of your lymphocytes aka your immune system (gross approximation but you get my point). Logan would be brittle as fuck from the simplest cold (which he would die from had he had no healing factor). - As also many were quick to point out, his healing factor would fix his telomeres. This is only the case if his factor prevented mutations, in which case he would not age but also have no powers since those results from mutations. [...]

      - If his healing factor would not prevent mutations he would have died a thousand times from old age (telomeres) and cancer (mutations), which is something your own body cannot, by definition, cure by itself no matter how much healing factor you have as cancerous cells have properties which completely prevent them from being eradicated by your immune system.
      - Getting back to the "whole healing no mutations" scenario, he would surely not die but it would be best for humanity that he doesn't reproduce. His healing factor would completely prevent any mutation and therefore variety in his descendance. Give or take fifty years and you have an entire population of clones (exact same genome) who can't reproduce and will go instinct with one virus. Asexual species don't survive long due to poor genetic diversification, I can't imagine the life-span of a Logan species.

      Humanity's only home in the Marvel universe is giving Wolverine a condom or praying for his self healing to be recessive, in which case the species could have a chance potentially maybe nah not really.

      I never got into comincs and don't like xmen movies or anything. But can't you see an inherent problem in trying to use reason to justify something which is already unreasonable by its very nature? Anyway, if you just say the calcium in bones was substituted by adamantium then there's no reason bones wouldn't continue to produce blood cells (I think the red cells are made there too, they are even more important than the whities).
    • Gouchnox
      Gouchnox
      Imo the whole "it's a fictional universe you dumbass" argument is just pointless and empty. Everyone knows that it's not real, no one, absolutely no one is saying "Logan is not a realistic character" and actually thinking that it's an issue that he's not realistic and not applying to every possible laws of physics you could dream of. That would be boring as fuck. There is no connection to the fictional aspect of some piece of media and the importance we should give to it.
      A fictional universe is a series of thoughts to create a solid structure so therefore absolutely no one has the rights to debate (I didn't say argue) or have any interest on said thought process and said structure, right? Duh. Obviously. Because opinions are wrong. Duh.
      As for your actual argument, that being the argument you provided towards my point of view, allow me to retort. I'm just your ordinary guy in your ordinary chemistry college studies, and this may come as a surprize but, in my humble opinion, the fact that bones are bones (and not Eiffel Towers) kinda a little bit helps them produce cells you know. Kinda a bit. Just a touch.

      It depends on if the adamantium bones are actually capable of producing blood cells (which I found they are). Sure, it does not seem like Gouchnox has taken the crucial red blood cells into his consideration, but you can't just ignore a problem by just saying "I'm sure it's not that bad". From what I know X-men does not sustain their life force from "fiction magykks".
    • Gouchnox

      "Wolverine’s entire skeletal structure, including his claws, has been artificially bonded to the nearly indestructible metal Adamantium. As a result, Wolverine’s bones are virtually unbreakable, and his claws are capable of cutting through almost any substance depending on its thickness and the amount of force he can exert. Due to his healing factor, the presence of Adamantium in his body does not interfere with his bones’ normal function of generating blood corpuscles. The reinforcement of his skeleton enables Wolverine to withstand high levels of physical pressure, giving his muscles sufficient force to briefly lift/press several hundred pounds. Throughout his life, Wolverine has used a variety of bladed weapons, most frequently daggers and, at times, swords. He has also wielded many different types of firearms throughout his careers as a soldier, a mercenary, and a spy."

      Did my research, and apparently Wolverine's bone structure was reinforced with adamantium and not replaced. With that info in mind my whole statement about Logan's potential inability to produce blood cells correctly is false. My bad.
      So after some digging it would appear Wolverine's bone structure do not impair his biology and metabolism. Adamantium should not corrode and his body shouldn't have any problem with it, with our without any healing factor though apparently it's still cannon that he can only survive with his bone structure thanks to his healing factor.

      - When going through doors you are sometimes teleported to another room, leaving you even more lost than with the lack of map and visual clues
      - There are multiple boss rooms and only one is the true one
      - If you get hit while shooting (so if you get it) you get teleported to a random room, yes even if you're fighting the true boss and have him at 10% life left

    After 337h, I finally fully completed my first character, Eve.
    Yes, I really like this character unlike a lot of people, shut up. And yes it took me 337h but I'm not a tryhad, I just focus on having fun.
    That being said, as I finally did greedier with her, I can definitely say that, imo, ultra greedier needs a major nerf. I had 12 hearts going in (guppy and all), melted ultra greed, but barely survived greedier with 1.5 hearts. Imo, this guy should either have less health/armor, or have less bullshit attacks with giant hitboxes.
    I'm one of those people who think even Hush is more honest than Greedier.

    In order to have music on my phone, I have to download it on my main computer, transfer it though a usb drive to my laptop, and from there to my phone's sd card through a usb-mini usb port.
    You might think this is stupid and overkill, but this is the only way possible for me due to installing drivers being the absolutely most tedious and stupid thing any human being could be asked to do on this planet. This screen right here is the result of a few hours of search, aka the only driver I could find which would allow my main computer to recognize my phone. Luckily for me, it doesn't work.
    There are some inexplicably stupidly tedious things to do, and i would like someone to explain to me why installing mother fucking drivers is one of them.

      Haven't seen the CBUD explanation video, but I'm guessing this bomb triggers because placing a collision box updates the pathfinding ai of zombies trying to reach a villager. This makes sense of the trapdoors and carpets which are often used for pathfind manipulation, and the stairs, wither skull and end rods for different block hitboxes to perhaps manipulate the ai of zombies separately from villagers because they have different heights (i know it works for spawning though pathfind is tricky)
      Also none of the blocks in that bomb seem to be full blocks (except for that fucking sponge, it's the only thing i can't explain)
      Redstone blocks bud the pistons and also they are semi full blocks with weird properties such as not blocking pack spawning nor pathfind so yeah
      Noteblocks are for block update transmission and the end crystal is obviously the trigger since it instantly explodes with a huge radius whenever its 2*2*2 hitbox conflicts with another entity

  • So Gaster is an amalgamate because he injected himself determination, right? Okay.
    So now that we know that Gaster is a skeleton (wait what no you didn't say that) and that he was split in two, he was obviously split into Papyrus and Sans. Here, I'm gonna explain this to you through evidences I guarantee you've never heard before.
    - cue evidences we've already seen and also i have already used in my previous video to prove something opposite of what i'm proving right now, therefore making these evidences weightless -
    Okay so now that we know that Gaster was split into Sans and Papyrus, we could also dig deeper and, oh look, Gaster was obviously talking to Sans and Alphys in his entries, it all makes sense.
    "Dear half of me that doesn't exist yet and that I have no idea will exist since I'm injecting myself expecting positive results and not my soul being split in half, dear royal scientist I couldn't possibly know of because I'm currently the royal scientist and you don't exist yet..."

    • Jarr2003
      Jarr2003
      Tbf, MatPat still has a part three to explain everything, so the theory might make more sense when he releases that. Plus, due to how MatPat seems to be focusing on this theory much more than his other theories, I'm hoping that he'll bring up the "Gaster talking to Sans" hole that everybody mentions.

      I don't see why Gaster couldn't have known Alphys before she replaced him. Since Alphys is the royal scientist, it's likely that she had been involved in science for some time prior to being appointed the royal scientist. As thus, it is possible she had worked with Gaster for some time prior to his disappearance. It's possible Alphys has never met Gaster, but it's also entirely possible that she has.
    • Goldra
      Goldra
      ...But, that clashes with matpat's theory. Since they were both scientists, and likely working on the same sort of things, it wouldn't make sense for her to not recognize Gaster's blueprints.
    • Jarr2003
      Jarr2003
      She just says "the blueprints." It's never specified how she got them or what she knows about them. It's very well possible that Alphys is well aware that Gaster made the blueprints, but she herself didn't know how to build the determination extractor (or whatever it's called) without the blueprints. It's very possible that he never showed Alphys the blueprints and instead had her study the effects of the machine, or something similar.
    • Goldra
      Goldra
      Yeah, but that's the exact reason that MatPat says that Gaster made them.
    • Jarr2003
      Jarr2003
      No, MatPat said that Gaster created the blueprints, but never said that he made them specifically for Alphys. It's likely that Gaster created the blueprints, built the machine, get horrifically amalgamated, before Alphys finds the blueprints, rebuilds the machine in hopes of using determination to help monsters, and as thus the events of the true lab happen.
    • Jarr2003
      Jarr2003
      Btw, MatPat does say Gaster is a skeleton at one point in the video.
