Something you should know about me: I am totally lacking any ability to be objective at the prospect of things that should only exist in fiction happening in otherwise-miserable reality. If someone cloned a T-Rex tommorow and it went on a violent rampage somewhere tomorrow, providing it didn’t hurt anyone/anything I directly care about I would probably be watching every scrap of footage of the event with the world’s biggest smile plastered across my face on a near-constant loop for at least a MONTH before it ever occured to me that this was actually a tragic, terrible event. Y’know those military-grade armed-robot videos that scare the piss out of everyone? I get giddy over that shit, because it means I’m one step closer to a Terminator. Or Johnny Five, either one works.
I am aware that this is incredibly dangerous, and that this guy (and the many, many others like him) is probably mentally ill and that eventually one of them is going to do get seriously injured/killed (or seriously injure/kill someone else) and it’s not going to be “fun” anymore…
…I just find it hard to care when I’m watching this as an actual news-report on CNN. Awesome. The “lair” in the back of the comic-book store completes it.
