Can our exoskeleton protect us from bullets? If so… oh, the possibilities and political craziness.

I wouldn’t have all kinds of bruises of unknown origins anymore. That’d be pretty cool.

We could have our clothes painted on.

We wouldn’t have the kind of flexibility that we do now.

The expression “thin skinned” would be used less frequently.

Wow, I have arthritis so it would be fabulous! They could fix me up at an exo body shop. Or I could do it myself with duct tape and crazy glue!

i think that we would likely be crushed to death by the weight of our own exoskeleton. Notice how only very small creatures have this.

I ate some Maryland soft shell crabs for dinner last night. The crabs are killed within one hour after shedding their exoskeletons so they are still soft.
If we had exos I imagine we’d turn it into a wild sex thing during that hour. Think we’d all taste like fish?
