Man Flu (MF)

OK, if you're interested in something witty and funny today you are not going to get it. Sorry. What you're going to get is what our lady folk call 'Man Flu' (known to the medical fraterinty as MF). Now I'm not a wuss, honestly, in the past 5 years I've had 2 days off work sick, but I truly feel rubbish today.

So I'm not going to talk about anything funny.

I'm going to talk about glow in the dark pigs and fish.

Channel 4 tonight showed a programme about GM animals, and it asked the question....Is it right?

GM anything surely by its nature is something thats going to go wrong at some point sooner or later. Pig poo for example. A guy has made a pig that has less phosphorus in its poo (which is a good thing apparently). and it's all dead environmentally friendly. great- but isn't the real solution to not eat as many pigs in the first place? (hence producing less poo). Constantly re-shaping our world because it doesn't quite fits us perfectly is surely a road to disaster - without going all hippy dippy on you, earth has been here quite a while, and we are unlikely to out live it unless we start playing by its rules.

Having said that if there was a GM cure for Man Flu (MF) I'd bite their fucking arm off.
