CRISPR Critters

CRISPR Critters – Coming Soon?

Yessiree! What with the recent advances is extensive genetic engineering and design through the use of CRISPR, can CRISPR Critters be that far off? After all, it’s already being done. Hell! GloFish have been on the pet market for a few years now.  And, some scientists have even taking the first step of reverting birds – chickens! – to their ancient theropod forms.

And yes! I’m mostly being sarcastic. Still, once the science is available, people will find all sorts of uses for it.

The Eternal Black Adder

Black Adder
The Eternal Champion

For that small segment of people who are both fans of Michael Moorcock’s Elric Saga and the old(ish) BBC sitcom series, Black Adder, this is probably a ROFLMAO moment given that Robert Gould’s 1983 cover art for The Sailor on the Seas of Fate makes Elric look a lot like Rowan Atkinson.

Passing The Torch

Passing The Torch Of Lunacy
Passing The Torch Of Lunacy

Despite the Left’s incessant, dogmatic cries for “change” and “progress,” those who are likely Dem voters do strongly prefer consistency in those who they wish to rule over the People… when that consistency is in lunacy, ignorance, and gross abject stupidity. Hence, with Nancy Pelosi being of advanced years, they seem to have arrange for a passing of the torch of lunacy from her to Orcasio-Cortez. 😉

But, to be fair, this is a form of progress. The New Crazy isn’t the same as the Old Crazy.  Old Nancy, mad as a hatter or 3rd-Stage Syphilitic or not, always had a certain level of acumen, something that made her a danger. Such cannot be truthfully said for Orcasio-Cortez.
