Hello! Due to spambot issues, in order to "create" an account on this forum, you must now email QuetzaDrake at firstname.lastname@example.org and ask him to create an account for you, including a Username and a password. He will make an account for you with that info and you'll be able to login with the information and change the profile however you want after that.
This is to save time and pain from having to sift through thousands of spambots and their posts in order to locate actual new members' introduction topics. You'll still need to post in the Newbie Lobby with an introduction topic just for confirmation that everything's fine and working, but this way things will be a lot cleaner and easier for staff.
Thanks for your cooperation!

Your understanding on the benefits of Genetic enhancement/therapy appears to be lacking. Primaily because having glowing rats, is actually going to be counter productive to their survivial, not that Cat's need the extra-advantage to see mice in dim to dark lighting. To make glowing rats, is simply a vanity thing humans are going to do because they think it just looks fucking cool. v.v;
Do you even know the wing span you'll require, or the mass of muscles you'll need on your back for you to have functioning wings? Or that you'll require so much ATP just to flap around in the air for ten minutes? Ignoring the idea, that wings are evolved ARMS and HANDS*, there's still a lot of problems with the idea, that makes it unfeasible.
*The idea here, is that your either going to have wings, or your going to have hands that can use fine tools and open doors and type at the keyboard. (Although, yes you could type with a beak, but I'd feel bad for watching/laughing.)

... erm... the glowing rats just means that current genetic modification just uses other genes...
As for wings, I bet there'd be a way to modify it to grow outta my back or something... hopefully...
And Why'd I need a beak?
Anyway, point is that genetic changes will start using other genes already known. I have a good idea of this from a friend interning at NIH and my own work...
