Sometimes I wonder about the really big metaphysical questions – if the Chinese can invent a car that runs by your brain, why can't I get my Christmas lights, which were made in China, to turn on? Do they have to be plugged into a brain? And then, why is my electric popcorn maker, also manufactured in China, always sparking?
China has been in the news a lot lately. Aside from the fact its economy is controlling the rest of the world, not to mention our 401(k)s, they seem to keep coming up with wild and crazy inventions, along the lines of Dr. Frankenstein and Jules Verne, and some of them are a bit creepy. For example, their scientists have produced the world’s first “genetically edited” super dogs with muscles that make them look like Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and the Incredible Hulk, with hair. I ask: What good can come from these experiments, unless they want a canine version of WWE’s Raw?
