ableism 

there's a special kind of ableism where if there's no big catastrophic event to mark it, like an injury or disease, people won't believe there's something wrong, like boiled frog syndrome, if someone just slowly gets worse and less functional over time, people think they're just being lazy or something, and i hate it, personally

This is Deinococcus radiodurans. These bacteria may be the toughest organisms in the world, surviving dehydration, cold, acid, and vacuum, and withstanding more radiation than probably any other living thing.

Some scientists have considered using them as a way of storing data to survive an apocalypse. In 2003, researchers encoded the song It's A Small World into DNA, engineered it into D. radiodurans, and managed to retrieve it without errors 100 generations later.
