Synthetic Life

Ok there was a little article about scientists creating an entire genome and planting it into an existing cell, yeah its the exact kind of thing that freaks everyone out. Creating super humans all that jazz. But its happening and within the scientific world its not a big deal, they've been advancing towards this for a long time and I don't see them stopping now. A while back PZ mentioned this stuff and said that the public will go nuts and the scientists will say, yup that was the next step, nice job, they look towards what ever the step after that is. Unfortunately my enthusiasm which was lacking before has all been sucked up by something I'll post in a few minutes when I stop laughing.
