While the sciene-geek in me thinks this is cool, the watched-too-many-bad-movies-geek in me thinks this is not such a good idea:

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070629/ap_on_sc/germ_gene_swap;_ylt=ArwvJH5hm07gzufYXz4Pk4oPLBIF

"Scientists changed one species of bacteria into another by performing a complete gene swap.

It's a step in the quest to one day create artificial organisms, part of a bigger project to custom-design microbes that could produce cleaner fuels. But the way it was performed, dubbed a "genome transplant," has genetics specialists buzzing.

"This is equivalent to changing a Macintosh computer to a PC by inserting a new piece of software," declared genome-mapping pioneer J. Craig Venter, senior author of the new research published Thursday by the journal Science."

Um, haven't any of these guys seen (or read) The Andromeda Strain or The Fly?  I think we may have to start brushing up on killing science experiments gone wrong.

Gather up the villagers and light the torches!

Well, President Bush did warn us in his 2006 State of the Union speech about them Human-Animal Hybrids and how they aren't able to practice thier love of women all across this country.

If you're an Andy Milligan fan there's no hope for you.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
