One Step Closer..
to Zombie Uprising...
"US scientists have taken a major step toward creating the first ever artificial life form by synthetically reproducing the DNA of a bacteria, according to a study published Thursday.
The move, which comes after five years of research, is seen as the penultimate stage in the endeavour to create an artificial life form based entirely on a man-made DNA genome -- something which has tantalised scientists and sci-fi writers for years...."
Not that I'm complaining. I've been practicing plenty on resident evil so I know how to shoot zombies in the head. If you were a zombie, I'd shoot you in the head. You're welcome.
I read the 'zombie survival handbook' every night and practice getting out of the house in under 5min with Pup and gear. Oh, I'm ready.
I just like pointing out all these things going on in the world that are all stepping stones to the inevitable. Oh, they all have good reasons. For example, this US team "...has hailed artificial life forms as a potential remedy to illness and global warming. "
Another team that is working on prolonging life even after being brain dead is looking to preserve organs so they can be transferred more safely and for longer trips.
All worthy and good reasons for the research. But you all know how this story's gonna end. :)
