    On a serious note, what is wrong with using gene editing to eliminate hereditary conditions that are terminal for us? EVERY tool can be used to create or destroy in the history of humanity, we have to have the moral fortitude and evenhandedness to use it responsibly.

    I’ve said this before, I’ll say it again: John Oliver makes videos over topics that seem boring or uninteresting at first, but later seem important for us to know and motivate us to do something about the issue!

    Jurassic Park: Cloning isn’t great
    Jurassic World: Gene Editing isn’t Great.

    Joking aside, there was a movie all about this that came out in 97. Gattaca.

    Rampage is based on the old school video game, While Wolf Blitzer would have been funny or whatevs, it wouldnt be right.
