Genetic Engineering

I can’t find any particular thread to pinpoint from the old forum (just assorted posts here and there), so…I guess this is a new subject for us?

Do you embrace this stuff, or does it scare you?

Do you want zombies?! BECAUSE THIS IS HOW YOU GET ZOMBIES!

A second baby has been made.

So, I’d like to clone my body, minus genetic defects, plus some upgrades, reinsert my now adult brain into the new youthful body.

Repeat to infinity.

Well, that ended quickly.
