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.
Morrissey is the crown prince of sad.  He teaches us that deaf/mute girls are terrible at telling you that a disaster is occurring, and that when you get famous, all your old friends hate you for buying new tee shirts.  Morrissey fans are best known for hugging their legs and biting their knees in the shower, over a girl that dumped them rather than learn their name, or binge-eating an entire pizza and then throwing it up on their man-boobs in the bath tub, while they squeeze their  testicles until they remember that they are worthless and do not deserve love.

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

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!
