Scientists Create Glow-In-The-Dark Sheep!!

Filed under: Science!Sheep

glow in the dark sheep science(1)

In Uruguay, scientists have genetically modified sheep so that they can glow-in-the-dark!!

They only glow under ultraviolet light though, so unless you have a black light, you'll miss these goats' special ability.

Researchers at Uruguay's Animal Reproduction Institute partnered with the Pasteur Institute of Montevideo to create the first transgenic sheep in Latin America.

World's First Genetically Modified Babies Born Eva!

Wowza!

For the first time ever in the entire world - genetically modified humans were successfully created!

That shiz cray!

Apparently, thirty one hundred percent healthy babies were born after being experimented on.

Two of the babies' genes have been tested and are confirmed to have genes from three different parents - one father and two mothers.

Over the past three years at least fifteen of these babies have been born who have received these genetic experimentations.

They began as embryos in women who originally had trouble conceiving - extra genes were injected into these womens' eggs before they were fertilized in order for them to be conceived.

DNA tests confirm that two of the babies both have three inherent DNA traits from three different parents.

If any of these babies eventually have children they will also pass their genes to their offspring and so on and so forth.

The practice, which is the first of its kind in the history of the world, has caused extreme outrage and criticism among the majority of scientists in the world.

Geneticists do not want this method to eventually be used to create new races of humans with super natural strength or extremely high intelligence.

Obviously that would just be totally unfair.

Darwin could've never predicted this.

Who needs survival of the fittest when you got science like this??

Scientists also believe this kind of experiments may be the first step towards cloning humans which is just a bad science fiction movie waiting to happen.

Ha!

Nancy Kerrigan's Brother's Bail Terms Changed

Filed under: ZportzLegal MattersSad Sad

So tragic.

Nancy Kerrigan's brother, Mark, was charged with manslaughter in the death of their father, Daniel. The family posted his $25,000 bail and he has since been living at home with his mother while he is monitored with a GPS device.

However, Judge Jane Haggerty reportedly changed the terms of his restrictions to accomodate him while he undergoes knee surgery! Mark will now be able to go to the edge of mother's property on Mondays to take out the trash, and help his mother with the yard work. He will also not have to wear the GPS during the surgery.

We know Mark is not well, so we hope he can handle the added leniency.

Such a difficult situation.

Thoughts??
