Chicken grows face of dinosaur

Quote
a team has been tampering with the molecular processes that make up a beak in chickens.

By doing so, they have managed to create a chicken embryo with a dinosaur-like snout and palate, similar to that of small feathered dinosaurs like Velociraptor. The results are published in the journal Evolution.

The team's aim was to understand how the bird beak evolved, because the beak is such a vital part of bird anatomy. It has been crucial for their success. The 10,000 or more bird species occupy a wide range of habitats, and many have specialised beaks to help them survive.

No sense trying to make non-sense of this board. The live posts this moment: yours, gaming posts, other cramps. Is this all there is? Any of y'all get out of yer house and do somethings? Or is it a sit-in-your-room & post on the internet dealy? ( O.K., I really like the shared art. That r'ocks) But can I show you an image of a mouse with a human ear growing out it's side?  I'll be sitting in my room when I post it.

It's all you, personally, are ever going to see of this board.  Funny thing is, I had you pegged as a good one, and I never do that.  I am Jack's massive feelings of disappointment.

FOR FUCK'S SAKE! CUT!

This ad-lib bullshit is the reason why you'll never reach A-list status. Unfortunately, your contract was written up tighter than John Goodman in a clown car, so I won't be able to can you like I intended.

MIKE, IF THAT BACKDROP DOESN'T CONVINCE ME I'M IN THE GRAND FUCKING CANYON, I'M REPLACING YOU WITH YOUR TWIN BROTHER. To think, it's possible to be so much more useless than someone who STARTED OUT WITH THE SAME GENES AS YOU.

At this rate, Alan Smithee's gonna get credit for yet another B-Movie.

LET'S TAKE IT FROM THE TOP.

And kid, this time, go by the script. There's a goddamn DINOSAUR CHICKEN in the room and you're mumbling on about the goddamn outdoors. Do the outdoors have FUCKING DINOSAUR CHICKENS, FUCK FACE? DIDN'T THINK SO.

ACTION!

Life can be seen as a game with no reset button, no extra lives, and if the power goes out there is no restarting.  If that's all you see life as you are not long for this world, and never will get it.

Why do they need "ethical approval" to hatch it? In general it's always more ethical to nurture an organism than to destroy it, with the only clear exceptions being pathogenic organisms, parasites, and fascists.
