Genetic mutation
« on: December 06, 2008, 09:01:33 PM »
I had a thought... Are any of you genetically mutated in any way?

The reason I wonder is because I am. My grandfather was caught one mile off shore when they dropped the bomb on Hiroshima in world war 2. He was trapped out on decks of his ship for 15 hours in the radiation fallout and it caused a mutation within his genetic code. That mutation allowed him to live longer than he would have other wise because his mutated genes made an experimental cancer treatment work for him when it had not worked for the other 99 members of his test group.

The mutated genes were passed down to my father and from my father to me. They cause my muscle and bone to be much denser than the normal humans' and it also makes me cystic because my body is constantly trying to heal wounds that aren't there. When I do get a wound I heal much faster than a normal person would.

Anyone have any thoughts, comments, or questions?

I'm definitely a genetic variation, cuz I am sterile, and a bunch of other reasons. But I have no idea if I am a flat out mutation. :?

I'm sterile too. From the innumerable cysts.

Yeah, I haven't even had a period since sixth grade, but I do regularly get the classic PMS mood swings that all girls get. *<:)

I have my period, but it only lasts 12-36 hours. And because I have endomitriosis it makes my cysts worse.

What's endomitriosis? Sounds painful. :?

heh,  :evil: technically everybody would be a mutant since nobody's DNA is exactly the same.
I have multiple personalities, one is a were-Sheepenguin, one is a fruit vampire, one likes to imagine cruel and unusal totures, that one's name is Bob the VI.

baa.

Wow, this thread is a great big massive case of "OH MY GOD THAT'S HORRIFIC". I actually got sick imagining ovarian cysts. Nice job Kitsune! Not very many people manage to make me sick!

Now, as for mutations, I don't really know if this counts or not, but I'm HUGE. I'm tall and muscular, but I weigh far more than I look like I should. 315 pounds to be exact. Sure I'm a big guy, but I hardly look that big. My doctor thinks it's because of abnormally dense muscles and bones, but I'm not so sure. Either way, it makes me strong as an oxe so I'm totally fine with it :-D

I have something kinda odd. My eyes are two different colors. One is mid/pale blue and the other is mid/pale green. The iris has a gold circle surrounding it with white/silver specks inside. The outside is marked by a dark ring. It's not easy to see but once you see it, it's all you can notice about my eyes.

I have a minor obsession with eyes and could tell you a lot of genetic mutations in the eye I've seen. There's everything from having purple eyes to having an eye split brown/blue. It's really cool.

I also have spots in my hair that are much lighter than the others, but not because of highlights or dead hair, just light/whitish.

Does that count?

My dog has a half blue/half brown eye.  It's pretty sweet.

My doctor at one point was amazed that when I was little I had really straight, stringy hair.  My hair is definitely anything BUT straight now, but he wanted to stick me under a microscope or something...  was rambling about a "dormant gene" or whatever.  I have no idea what that means, but I got the heck out of there.  Not much of a mutation or anything, but just something...

Um... yeah, not much abnormal about me physically;  It's all in my head. :-D

Amaya and Daemonin, I have oddities with my eyes and hair as well. My eyes change colors if I have too much or too little of certain minerals in my body. And as for my hair, it's natural coloration can only be described as calico... Like a calico cat. I have splotches of orange, brown, blonde, red, and deep grey.

I feel special now, Kreep. =P And sweet, someone with at least some of the same mutations as me. I look like I should weigh about 120, or so people have told me, and I actually weigh around 170. Only 28% body fat, too.

Isn't that low amount of body fat unhealthy? :?

Yes it can be. Too much and too little both cause their own problems. As long as you're in the healthy range or near it thought, I'm pretty sure you'd be okay. The too low is usually posted for people with eating disorders and medical conditions that cause them to lose a lot of weight.

Yeah, I remember this super tall girl who didn't look skinny, but she always had to take these pills to make her gain weight. And it wasn't even from being too athletic either.
