Scientists Go for the “cool” Factor

Nobody Flashes

I have a friend who thinks this is just the coolest thing he’s ever seen, and what’s funny, is that today I was watching a program on the History Channel–and some geneticist scientist, who was splicing different genes from different species to make more or less monsters, said, she just thought it was so ‘cool.’ that she could do that.

Have we come to the point in science that we do stuff just because we can, and it’s cool?

For instance, would you buy this car?

Sure, the way the door go under the car is cool: But is it practical? Picture that car pulling up to the castle in a heavy downpour. The rain would BLAST into the car, getting the seats, the floor, the dashboard, not to mention everybody sitting in it, soaking wet. When getting out of a car now, only a small space is exposed to the outside and you can hop out in a flash, shut the door quickly, and be off.

But: More importantly, what if you are in a car accident? Your door is jammed. It won’t go down. It won’t go up. You can’t get out. The gas tank explodes.

You’ll more than likely: burn up.

And yet, obviously whomever put the money into making this car thought it was ‘cool’ regardless of its setbacks. And someday, when hybrid humans are walking the planet, and we have members of the species who are abominations to nature, will we all look back and say:Gills two

“Look! He has gills! That’s just so cool!”

  1. This design is spectacular! You definitely know how
    to keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos,
    I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Excellent job.
    I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!
