Luminous Innards

Speaking of chimeras (see the commets to yesterday's entry), Spooky came across this article on Yahoo, and I was seized with an overwhelming need to share.

Mouse Hearts Glow Like E.T.'s

You know, some poor frellwit actually paid to attend college to be hired by some other poor frellwit to write headlines like that, and they both make more money than I do. But. Anyway. Once again, fun with hybridizations that Nature never could have managed. Why does it always seem to involve bioluminescent jellyfish DNA? Or spider silk? I want my chromatophores, damn it, and I want them now.

Looking at all those mouse hearts, I can't help but think of Andy Warhol...
