So Firefly is about to come true? except we do not have space travel yet and I don't get to ride horses on other planets for no apparent reason:(

We are getting all the authoritarian central planets politics but without any of the cool parts. It just isn't fair.

I was joking about the series cancellation, but true

Look on the bright side. A Chinese-American hegemony is within our grasp.

Once again lefties bitterly disappointed that they can't turn other species into ants?

It's kinda terrifying to think we, as a species, invented gene splicing technology before completely understanding of how genes work

I mean.. That's how many discoveries are made. A big "What does this do/What happens when I do this/why did this happen when I did that?"

Yeah, genes don't come with convenient labels so we know what they do. We can only determine that through experimentation and comparison.

In case people are wondering how scientists can be so surprised with gene-editing, there are a lot of genes that also serve to turn on/off other genes. So turning off one gene can result in turning on another gene that only becomes active by the lack of gene expression from the first gene.

Something something whether it could be done, something something whether it should.

The brain chemistry of every species on earth is shaped by over three billion years of evolution.

Every seemingly deleterious quirk scientists seek to eliminate evolved into being for a reason.

Good fucking luck figuring that shit out.

For some reason the thought of insanely aggressive and homicidal hamsters scares the crap out of me.

The females already eat their own young without prompting or lack of food. This does not surprise me.

The scientists used Syrian hamsters and CRISPR-Cas9 — a revolutionary technology that makes it possible to turn on or off genes in cells. The technology knocked out a receptor of vasopressin — a hormone associated with enhanced aggression.

we need to ban these niggards. Now

Actually, that would be a success, as the average ghetto dwelling new yorker poses no threat to the regime.

Note how in 2020 they managed to burn down everything except the people causing their problems.
