Today I learned about the knockout mouse.

It's not what you think. It's not what I thought, anyway.

If God had wanted us to knock out the genes of mice to fuck with them on the genetic level, he would have given us the intelligence to eventually develop the techniques to do that.

I was thinking it had to do with the cables running in the roads for the cable cars, but this is much cooler. It's knowledge that will be handy in the zombie apocalypse.

I thought maybe it marked where one of those things that turned streetcars around used to be.

But, I couldn't figure why they'd be marked that way.

Plus, do streetcars have to turn around? They just stop and then go the other way don't they?
