Yes a glow in the dark dog!

The puppy was bred to produce a fluorescent protein that glows red under ultraviolet light, but it's red skin colour can also be clearly seen in daylight.

Uhm, kiiiinda weird.

I don't see the harm in this specifically, but I do see the harm that further progressions in GM technology can and probably will bring to us.


In general I don't think it's a good idea. Err, lemme rephrase.

It's a great idea. We aren't good beings though. So we will invetiably turn it around for the worse. Gauranteed. Same thing with AI, if we live long enough for AIs to be self-aware, and more intelligent then humans, we're in trouble. An infinitely logical being will inevitably determine that our removal is a good idea, since we operate so very counter logical.

GM will be used as a form of warfare eventually if we carry it for long enough, you just wait.

We'll have a real life "48 Hours Later" (2003) or something like that. OR THE ZERG! :P :lol:

P.S. It's not glow in the dark, it's glow in the presence of UV EMR. Just a minor detail. :P

Reminds me of the glow in the dark goldfish on The Big Bang Theory.
War is an extension of economics and diplomacy through other means.

Economics and diplomacy are methods of securing resources used by humans.

Securing resources is the one necessary behavior for all living things.

War = Life

It came from Yahoo, meaning to me it’s up there with The Sun. Take everything with a pinch of salt.
