Science is gonna be the death of us. None of today’s scientists have learned anything from the failed examples set by guys like Victor Frankenstein and the bajillion other mad scientist types of the movies. The best of intentions don’t prevent your experiments from blowing up in your face. In everybody’s faces. A human-monkey hybrid has been created in a lab in China. And elsewhere the men in the labcoats are experimenting with crocodile blood in regards to its effects when ingested by human beings, or otherwise inserted into the human body. Of the two, I’m not sure which is the scarier concept. A human-crocodile creature would undoubtedly be the more physically formidable. Creature from the Black Lagoon, anyone? Or the Creature from CREATURE? But a human-monkey hybrid would probably be the smarter of the two, more capable of plotting evil machinations. We’re talking PLANET OF THE APES stuff here.
Yeah, in reality the crocodile blood experiments are more likely to result in better drugs and resistance to diseases. And the hybridization of human and monkey are more likely to give us more viable organs for those in need of organ transplants than a race of genius-level simian brutes with a hatred for humanity. But a B-movie lover can still dream, can’t he?
