People are working to make mosquitoes into little vaccinators as well. Engineer the bug to deliver a multitude of vaccinations with each puncture.

btw, I meant to put this in the politics forum but oh well.

Bayer has an experimental farm less than 2 miles from my house.

One night, a few years ago, I was driving home and I noticed as I topped a hill that a field of corn was glowing green. I told my daughter and she thought I was nuts.

I later read about experiments crossing genes of (I think it was jellyfish that glow green) with corn, among other things. I can't locate the article.

I'm just thrilled to find out I live so close to these bizarre crop experiments. :eek:

Now when someone tells me I look absolutely "radiant" there could be more truth to it than they know. :wink:
