Well, my teeth glows in the dark under a black light! The old glowing plaque joke! (drum roll) Tadum, dum. Frankly, a bigger accomplishment would be if they could breed a dog that didn't sh|t or p|ss all over the house. Actually they could make it so their S & P glowed in the dark.

I wonder if our generations will be the last ones to be totally the result of natural sexual reproduction? It's only a matter of time before people start messing with their kids' eye color, skin color, intelligence, sports ability, etc. Once it starts everyone will feel compelled to do it so that their offspring can "compete" with their scientifically engineered contemporaries. That's the advancement of the human race. To try to perfect what we already are.

God that bothers me. Doesn't that just feel so insulting? I hate the word "personalize"... people are so selfish. The same can be said about people who are selfish that they don't want to advance the human race closer to perfection. I fully endorse any advancement to the human race. If it can one day promote global unity, then it is truly a good thing.

If it can one day promote global unity, then it is truly a good thing. Yes designer pets and babies will promote unity, those with the cash to get their personalized babies, kids, guppies ect made will unite agaist those too poor to do it. A few generations down the road, only the rich will survive. Then human nature will kick their butts, and they will start wars to cure their bordem, rich group A will want the nano tech that...

There are so many problems. I am all for unity, but that will never happen, especially with expanding choices like that. That's disgusting.
