Fact: On my way to work yesterday I was wondering how long it would be before they did this.
So now we don’t even need men to have kids.
we don’t even need men to have kids
Two things that just happened:
I just had an image of feminists killing off all men and raising a flag on top of the highest peek of the Earth claiming this to be a woman’s planet. Keeping men in cages for pleasure or just killing them all off.
and the second thing was
I cried a little. Yes, I loathe children. But… I the thought of possibly having a child with my future wife that is ours and ours alone… I’m in tears.
WE DID IT
WE NO LONGER NEED MEN
NO MORE MEN
LADIES, A FANTASTIC BREAKTHROUGH HAS BEEN MADE
We’re moving on to a new age.
A better age.
It is now The Age of Misandry.
Do gay men still get thrown in or can we help you guys decorate?
Reblogging to look into later. There are a LOT of barriers that need to be overcome to do this. I’m curious about paternal genetic and epigenetic contributions.
This genetic anomaly is usually restricted to arthropods, but has been known to express itself in birds, as well. More interesting reading here.
I love existence. These are some of the neatest looking critters I’ve ever laid eyes on. Click through to see more awesome examples of bilateral gynandromorphism!
Oo. I really like this picture.
Prisoners to our genetic code.
In a sense, we are all bound by certain genetic aspects, but our genetics are not the end all of who we will be. As genetic information becomes more widely understood and available, there will be cases (as there are now) where people will discover that their personal genetics hide a nasty secret. A shorter life sentence, a predisposition to a deadly disease, or in some cases, guilt. Guilt in knowing that you possess a silent killer that will only be known in your children.
But our genetics are only part of who we are as people. The greater part, I believe, is made up of our experiences and memories. It is made of the the people we have come to know and the opportunities we decide to pursue. The people we are today is not who are genetics said we would be at birth. We are the sum of our life experiences. Certainly our genetics play a role, but it only becomes our prison if we let ourselves become prisoners.
A team of geneticists has announced that they have successfully bred fruit flies with the capacity to count.
After repeatedly subjecting fruit flies to a stimulus designed to teach numerical skills, the evolutionary geneticists finally hit on a generation of flies that could count — it took 40 tries before the species’ evolution occurred.
The findings, announced at the First Joint Congress on Evolutionary Biology in Canada, could lead to a better understanding of how we process numbers and the genetics behind dyscalculia — a learning disability that affects a person’s ability to count and do basic arithmetic.
“The obvious next step is to see how [the flies’] neuro-architecture has changed,” said geneticist Tristan Long, of Canada’s Wilfrid Laurier University, who admits far more research is needed to delve into what the results actually mean. Primarily, this will involve comparing the genetic make-up of an evolved fruit fly with that of a standard test fly to pinpoint the mutation.
Go into any flower shop and there’s a wide assortment of flowers for almost any occasion. But one thing you won’t find— not yet at least— are flowers that glow in the dark. Using jellyfish DNA and the magic of modern genetics, an Australian company has made flowers that glow in the dark.
