The Headlines in the 21st Century

One of the things I love most about the 21st century is feeling like life around me grows ever more toward being like a comic book.

Take this for example:

Transgenic Spider-Goat Hybrids Produce Tougher-Than-Steel Silk

When this becomes everyday – and it should because masses of spider silk at industrial levels would make for the most ecologically friendly and tough building material, not to mention catchy – the headlines to the masses would read:

GOAT LACTATES SILK!
-Scientists play God.

The future may never be here and now but the present is certainly just as weird.
