    #1 is the hypoallergenic cat. #7 is the fluorescent cat, as seen previously on Whitechapel.

    The complete top 10 list contains no other cats.

    I saw this, this morning.

    Fuel producing e-coli and poison sensing yeast.....It's like they're turning my kitchen into a frickin science experiment.

    what's next?

    spontaneously-combusting apples?

    New organisms and new orgasms covered in combination here:



    Stranger Kisses is about people for whom two genders are not enough, no matter how you play mix-and-match with sexuality. It’s also about videotape, bad secrets, and what it’s like to have an entire city wanting to kill you. The videotape is of seriously physically modified whores. Possibly altered at the genetic level. Because those extra orifices look grown. And those weird protuberances don’t look artificial…

    In LA, the future of rich man’s whoring and trophy women is being designed. Two sexes are not enough. People like their kisses stranger than that.

    Yes, Warren's imagination in that particular field has quietly distressed me for some time now....

    Further to the hypoalergenic cats, it says the same company has transgenic kittens-for-life in the works. Cute, but those things would be COMPLETELY unequipped to survive. The whole point of being a kitten is to fit inside mommy cat til such time as she squeezes you out, and then you grow like a mad motherfucker to keep the dogs and other neighbourhood cats at bay! They'd seriously rely on the owners to keep constant watchful eye on them, beating away hawks with a big stick and so forth, for the cat's entire lifespan.

    There's some ideas that just shouldn't be mucked with. Medical/therapeutic research subjects is one thing, but I reckon designer organisms is a road that should not be gone down.

    @ Adam
    I heartily agree that making perma-kittens would be an adorable but disgusting idea.

    The perma-puppy thing, if anybody hasn't seen it:

    That was viral for Micheal Creighton's latest book yes? (the video not the very real stuff about cats).

    I'm a big fan of the legless dogs, myself.

    Legless dogs! They're like cuddly throw-pillows! They'll never run away!

    ...but you don't need genetic engineering to make legless dogs.

    The super CO2 absorbing trees sound fantastic. The answer to global warming isn't to moderate industry and respect mother nature but to ramp up research so we can reshape the earth to our own specifications.
