Fluorescent Sheep Born In Uruguay

This is frankenstein science at its best. Altering the genes of sheep without any purpose other than to show what science is currently capable  of doing.

It isn’t a natural phenomenon but a man made alternative.

The sheep were genetically modified. Fluorescent gel, extracted from glowing jellyfish, was implanted in the sheep’s DNA. That modification produced an offspring that glows in the dark.

A group of Uruguayan scientists in co-operation with the Pasteur Institute in Montevideo, announced their ‘discovery’ yesterday, saying this is a first for Uruguay.

“Never before have sheep been genetically modified in Latin-America,” one scientist said. “The success puts Uruguay at the highest level in the scientific world.”

The sheep were born last year October. From the outside they look and act like ordinary sheep. Their only difference is that they glow when being covered with ultra violet light.

The scientists says their genetic modification had no real specific purpose other than studying the effect of the method used to introduce foreign genes into the DNA of animals.

Prior to this modification, cow genes were modified in Argentina and in Brazil the genes of goats were altered. Both genetic modification ‘created’ animals that produce human proteins….

McDonald’s burger bought in Utah in 1999 looks exactly the same as the day it was first flipped

If you need another reason to kick the junk food habit this should do it.

A Utah man has unearthed a McDonald’s hamburger he bought in 1999 – and the sandwich looks exactly the same as the day it was first flipped.

David Whipple kept the fast food meal for a month to show friends how the preservative-packed hamburger would keep its composure.

But he forgot about it, finding it two years later in his coat pocket and then he decided to continue the bizarre experiment.

Are You Just A Believer Or Do You THINK?

Digger shared a link with me that contains a sequence of events from a video that focuses on the double amputee that supposedly had his legs blown off. I want to share those with you here and ask you, especially if you have any trauma medical background (in the Armed Forces or ER or whatever), what is wrong with these pictures?
