We’ve been engineering genetically for ages

Thank heaven for genetic engineering. Let me be brief.

For thousands of years, we have been genetically engineering our food. We learned to cross-pollinate crops for a larger seed heads, greater sugar content, more protein. We bred a prize bull to certain cows for higher milk production or more meat. We genetically engineered for food and for vanity (how else did the wolf become the chihuahua?).

We have genetically engineered for thousands of years, we just didn’t know how to do it quickly. Now we do.

As for the engineering? I really prefer a Golden retriever…..
