Fine whatever SAHANA but we all know you’re really the thirst queen.
also thanks to you THIRSTRANI I have lost all ability to take Bandicoot Cuddlesnout remotely seriously and every time he came on screen I burst into uncontrollable laughter. This is all your fault.
dude my mom and I can smell ants too! And I’ve never felt an earthquake D:
whelp there you have it folks, it’s a family ability. Apparently we have the ‘ant smelling gene’ floating around in our DNA.
I swear I feel like every single damn tiny earthquake and I really need to stop ‘cause it is freaking me out man.
Hoping to give new meaning to the term “natural light,” a small group of biotechnology hobbyists and entrepreneurs has started a project to develop plants that glow, potentially leading the way for trees that can replace electric streetlamps and potted flowers luminous enough to read by.
The project, which will use a sophisticated form of genetic engineering called synthetic biology, is attracting attention not only for its audacious goal, but for how it is being carried out.
Rather than being the work of a corporation or an academic laboratory, it will be done by a small group of hobbyist scientists in one of the growing number of communal laboratories springing up around the nation as biotechnology becomes cheap enough to give rise to a do-it-yourself movement.
The project is also being financed in a D.I.Y. sort of way: It has attracted more than $250,000 in pledges from about 4,500 donors in about two weeks on the Web site Kickstarter. (via A Dream of Glowing Trees Is Assailed for Gene-Tinkering - NYTimes.com)
Reblogged before, but worth an update: These guys got more than funded, with still 28 days to go. Not bad for a DIY biotech lab.
