Things, Awesome and Otherwise
- Awesome: glow-in-the-dark sperm. When are they gonna put jellyfish proteins in the human genome? I want bioluminescent toenails already.
- Not Awesome: the cessation of flag wars:
“We acknowledge that we hold very different views on the question of the sovereignty of Hans Island,” the two [Danish and Canadian] ministers said in a joint statement after the meeting.
They agreed, however, to stop the two nations’ habit of dispatching their navies to invade the uninhabited island to tear each other’s flag down.
Flag wars are the best kind of wars! If they were held where it was warm and people could see them, they’d be just as much fun as national soccer competitions.
