Uh, you misunderstand me Dr. Howl.   I have no offer of a deal. You fascinate me. I could never agree to not interact with you. Is that a bannanable offense? You're the power-possesser here.

Nope.  The 6 things that get you banned were listed on registration.  It's not my fault if you sign things without reading them.

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.

Yes, in general. That's the key phrase there. This doesn't fall under general, this is an unusual.

I think they'd have a lot less problems if they stopped calling it a chicken.


kind of a 'ship of theseus' question here - how much DNA can you swap out and still call it a chicken?



but I guess we want gene-hacked people to still be human, so maybe it's better to think of it as a mutant-chicken than as something new

learning important lessons from prometheus here

If it is still interfertile with chickens and the resulting offspring are also capable of breeding with chickens, it's a chicken under Biological Species Concept.

It comes down to "what is the essential object of a chicken?"  The purpose of a chicken is to be fried and eaten.  Can this monster chicken be eaten?  If it can, then it is a chicken with dentures.  If it cannot, then it is an abomination that should be released into the MBTA station at 5 PM.

I approve of this!
