I, for one, welcome our future chimera overlords. Hurry up!
This is fine.
Or, in deconvoluted form:
It’s OK, we dissected the brain monkeys before they could be born
Although conducted in Germany, the study was led by a French scientist, Dr. Moreau…
I, for one, welcome our poo-flinging overlords.
Next up, shark brains!
Don’t they know what YEAR it is?!?!?
Meet the new boss
Same as the old boss
The really model fictional model for this is Bruce Sterling’s short story “Our Neural Chernobyl,” in which the brain embiggening gene is put in a virus. Which fortunately effects very few humans (the embiggening makes humans crazy) but civilization is suddenly plagued with intelligent raccoons and coyotes, turning parts of the country into no-go zones.
Dogs, however, begin setting knocked-over garbage cans back upright. They’re on our side.
How do you acquire monkey fetus brains?
“Japan has similarly high ethical standards and regulations regarding animal research and animal welfare as Germany does. The brains of 101-day-old common marmoset fetuses (50 days before the normal birth date) were obtained in Japan and exported to the MPI-CBG in Dresden for detailed analysis.”
Apparently you can just obtain them. I’m pretty sure that a couple of nasty phases were left out from the description.
To say nothing ot CHEMICAL X.
Hard to imagine any possible downside.
Bad idea, bro…
We don´t need smart monkeys!
When are we getting catgirls/catboys?
