Meddle with nature and look out.

Only bad things happen.

And can I just ask why these brain boxes of the world haven't worked out how to feed starving people instead of playing with their experiments?

Yeah, that is rather strange?

The worms are not the first glowing animals.

I think that gene dye is actually mentioned in the BBC OP link.

However, I think they just "inserted" the cells into certain parts of the beagle.

The worm was created with the dye gene as a part of its entire DNA constitution.

Yes, it seems they are moving from simply inserting something, often a virus of all things, to actual DNA combinations...I found this Nat Geo look at glowing animals...more out there!

I agree with your unction, but I am in between being a little boy and becoming a mature man, and I have to wonder: "What the hell is the point of this if there are still so many who are not able to get through their day in a healthy manner?" People aren't aware of where they are nor where they are going. Those who are aware of those things should be guiding others, even if subtly.
