DNA Dangers

Mmm, swirlyWell that's just great: "Scientists in Israel have demonstrated that it is possible to fabricate DNA evidence, undermining the credibility of what has been considered the gold standard of proof in criminal cases." Even better, DNA scavengers could potentially lift someone's genetic code from a stray hair or coffee cup and then get it tested, creating a whole new breed of what this article refers to as "genetic paparazzi," and Harvey Levin thinks of as "the game changer." And we haven't even talked about the terrifying possibility that someone could clone Hitler or Robert Novak using this information. It's scary times ahead!

Baby daddies everywhere breath a sigh of relief.

What kind of world would we live in if we repopulated it solely from the material on Motel bedsheets? A very sad, and horny one ladies and gentlemen.
