That seems really stupid.


That’s the total & complete definition of a gateway drug.



I bet he’s just trying to get midichlorians.


Book of Genesis in one leg, Koran in the other… does that mean the New Testament is somewhere in the groin area?


Why do 16 year old boys do anything?

I have a guess or two, but I better not say.

Hello, Mr. Locatelli? Charles Darwin here. Just wanted to let you know that I have an award reserved for you. You haven’t quite earned it yet, but I’m confident you will. Maybe when you tell your mother what you’ve been up to? Well anyway, best of luck. We expect stupid things from you.

Virus? Sounds about right.


On the plus side, if he contracts a new and exciting genetic disorder it’ll probably be named after him.

Great, Warren Ellis is a teen now. There’s nothing that guy won’t do to promote himself.


Is this like some sort of Tide pod challenge thing? I look forward to lib-tards injecting the works of Ayn Rand encoded into DNA.


This should be possible, the human genome is large enough and if you overwrite the inactive information you could easily fit atlas shrugged in there. I’d be curious to see the result, out of morbid fascination.


“Help me! Help me!”


Because it is.
