5/21/2002: Featherless chicken

If you ever wanted more evidence that birds evolved out of dinosaurs, there ya go.

It should also be noted that the featherless chicken is less fatty, as not having feathers means it requires less fat. So it'll be better for you too. Wahoo!

Dinos -> Birds
I worked at several ostrich farms for almost 5 years, and being in the midst of a herd of hundreds birds running around you, it feels just like the scene in Jurassic Park where the dinosaurs run past the people. Not that Jurassic Park is authentic in any sort, but that's just how it felt.

Not real purty though. We're testing out a few different breeds here, they roam freely during the day and have to be suitable for eggs and meat. I don't see this guy out-witting a hawk or fox.

Not to mention... increase corporate profits
They are also trying to create birds with no beaks so they can put more birds in a single cage without the birds pecking each other to death.

So which is uglier, this featherless bird, or the hairless cat... (at least most of us don't eat cats...)

I'm thinking pay per view.

Corporate progress vs. technical progress not the same: true, although that discussion would take us another 40 posts and probably belong in Politics as well, so despite my instincts... I'm not gonna touch that one!

Once in a while, I'll see a sci-fi show staged on another planet, and marvel at the alien, hairless, fleshy beasts that inhabit it.
