OMG, close your eyes Duncan, you don’t want to read this. Aussie and American scientists are developing a “stay sober” pill. Yes indeedy, you can drink and drink and drink and not get a wee bit tipsy. This can not possibly end well!

Here’s a conversation you can bring up at your next dinner party. Scientists in Australia are analyzing Dingo wee in an attempt to produce an artificial version to keep them away from livestock. Everyone knows dogs and cats use their urine to mark their territory right? It’s a kind of warning to other animals to stay the hell out of my hood. So anywho, scientists have been collecting dingo urine to work out which chemicals are the deterrent. Once that’s sorted, you ,farmers or anyone else who has wild dog issues can buy dingo piddle to spray around your property to keep them out. It’s like a reverse strategy, YOU become the one marking your territory.
We all know that cows and sheep let off methane emissions when they burp and fart but scientists have discovered that wallabies only release one fifth of the amount. Reason? They have a bacteria in their bellies that reduce emissions. Yep, you know where this is heading. They want to go to the laboratory and see if they can develop a similar bacteria for cows and sheep. Check the title of my blog post for my reaction.
Psst I wonder if I could use that bacteria for my grandma? She could start a car with her…ah never mind!
Oh crap, scientists have been messing with cows again. Yep, the latest genetically modified breakthrough is cows that produce “human” breast milk. Seriously I kid you not, they have bred 300 cows that had been given human genes to make their milk contain the same nutrients and fat content as human breast milk. Yuk! What could possibly go wrong?
Psst Why can’t human just leave nature well alone?
