So, there I was researching the size of a facility required for life support of one person (like you do) and in this NASA paper I read it requires SEVENTEEN trees per person to process our carbon dioxide.

And, you know, I think maybe we need to plant more trees. I've already got a bit more than an acre of them here, but I think I need to up my game.

So, if you want me to plant 17 trees for you, DM me and I'll tell you where to ship them.


Also, just to hang on to the links, let me also mention 'Anthroponics' – which is basically farming with piss – and 'Vertical Farming' – which is exactly what it sounds like.

Rusted Neuron – an Intentional Community

Rusted Neuron is an invitation-only 'Intentional Community'. It is not intended to represent a specific focus, although the people you find here are generally intelligent, creative, and witty. Content and conduct rules are set by the community, not by fiat. The one thing we will not tolerate here is intolerance; you can agree to disagree, but you must treat others with respect.

Currently the membership limit is 100 people and there are plenty of slots available. The goal is to try to replicate real-world community interaction and norms enforcement online. Keeping it small is intended to create a village atmosphere by staying well under Dunbar's Number.
