Ah, genetics – the one science that may hold all the secrets about humanity and maybe one day – soon – help us achieve our wildest dreams. Like, you always wanted to fly? Don’t worry, here, take this shot of this DNA-altering substance that will make you grow wings! Then you can practice your flying skills and learn to fly!

Sigh. A man can dream, I suppose. But it will be possible, one day. Provided we don’t destroy ourselves by then of course… If you don’t believe me, today we’ll remind you how powerful and awesome genetics is.
