    Now if a breeding program were instigated, who knows how fast the adaptations would accelerate...and yes, you could try this at home.

    Many breeding programmes are carried out in the home.

    After one month, reptiles. Then mammals.

    Researchers take cells from chrysalis and use them to grow butterfly wings in the lab.

    Why can't they do something useful like helping to develop Roo-bots?

    "Even today blue lotus is used as a tonic for good health. It may be consumed as an extract in doses of 6-12 drops. 1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon of extract may be taken in juice or wine, 1 to 3 times daily. Fresh Nymphaea caerulea flowers are made into a tea or soaked in wine, then consumed, followed by smoking the dried plant material. The buds and flowers are the psychoactive parts of the plant. "

    Don'tcha just love it when doses are specified without specifying the strength of an extract. Why juice or wine and not water?

    Defying textbook science, study finds new role for proteins.

    If you find one, chances are there are more.

    Depending on your experimental technique of course. We see plenty of evidence in the FE community that if you find one the chances are there aren't any.
  7.  
    In this case there's a mechanism which is (at least partially) understood. I wouldn't be surprised if they found a lot more examples. Nature will use what works, and this works. Unlike FE.

    Yeah, the inner workings of protein production is as clumsy as Windows OS. Except it's been polished over millions of years to avoid the blue screen of death (most of the times).
  8.  
    The analogy extends quite nicely, in that an OS like Windoze can be brought down by a poorly-written 3rd party driver, just as the body can be brought down by bacteria who are co-opting its services. Then there's viri...

    Do we now have a grasp on the magnitude of the SooN required to correct the errors of MS?
  9.  
    They appear to not be going away. And I doubt anyone is going to rewrite those tens of millions of lines of code from scratch, cleanly. In fact, it's most likely impossible.

    The OS will eventually rewrite itself and correct all those errors until there are no more errors left to correct. We might be errors ...

    Windows also has lots of overlapping libraries, obscure bugs and tons legacy problems.

    I would even bet a small amount of money to the idea that some virus even found a way to embed itself to the source code.

    I'm prepared right now to stipulate that some of us are.
