Scientists Create hideous glowing Frog/Jellyfish Hybrids

I for one welcome our new Glow in the dark Frog-Jellyfish overlords.

From http://cbs4denver.com/wireapnewswy/UW.professor.part.2.1390952.html

African clawed frog tadpoles modified with jellyfish genes show promise as a faster and less expensive way to detect pollution than traditional methods, say a University of Wyoming professor and researchers in France.What's more, the green-glowing tadpoles indicate whether pollution exists in a form that can be absorbed by an organism and therefore might be dangerous to people. That's more difficult with conventional methods."We're tracking dosages that would show up in terms of development in either a person or a tadpole," said Paul Johnson, a physics and astronomy professor at the University of Wyoming.Some tadpoles have been engineered to light up in response to metals. Others fluoresce when exposed to pollution from plastic that might cause health problems by mimicking the hormone estrogen.


While we're at it let's make them 200 feet tall and breathe fire too.

Redneck Christmas Display





From http://www.wftv.com/news/22005291/detail.html,

A Christmas display featuring Jesus shooting Santa Claus and a run-over Rudolph is riling some residents of a California neighborhood, KCOY-TV in Santa Maria, Calif., reported.Homeowner Ron Lake said his Christmas display in Nipomo is an expression of his repressed creativity, and that Santa represents the commercialism of Christmas.His neighbors disagree and they're upset -- they say the disturbing display will upset children. A school bus stop is just outside the fence that separates the display from the town's main roads."I know it's freedom of speech, but it's pretty disturbing and there are lots of children. That's our main concern," one neighbor said.Police said they can't force the homeowner to take down the display because it's on private property. Neighbors say they are planning to start a petition to get the display removed.

Make sure to check out the video so you can see his "art." I wonder what this guy would say if I made a scene of a big Pink Rabbit with a basket of Eggs crucifying Jesus on Easter Sunday.

Nasa photos show giant blue cosmic hand



Check it out:


http://edition.cnn.com/2009/TECH/space/04/14/space.hand/

The image, taken by NASA's space-based Chandra Observatory telescope, shows an X-ray nebula 150 light years across.It shows what appear to be ghostly blue fingers -- thumb and pinky clearly discernible from index, ring and middle digits -- reaching into a sparkling cloud of fiery red.

NASA says the display is caused by a young and powerful pulsar, known by the rather prosaic name of PSR B1509-58."The pulsar is a rapidly spinning neutron star which is spewing energy out into the space around it to create complex and intriguing structures, including one that resembles a large cosmic hand," NASA says.
