Was about to smash the shadowy chi.. the scientifically groundbreaking Chinese there, but the article states that the scientists were Spanish Catholics!!

My bad, China.

The Chinese, and probably others, have already been trying to genetically modify humans for some time now. The problem they have is the lead time to grow it to a size where they can see if the genetic manipulation gave useful traits. By experimenting with chimeras using, a fast maturing mammal, they can see the results of their work a lot earlier. In the wild there are very few animals that can successfully cross breed with other species and those that do, do not always produce fertile offspring. This is mainly because, even if you could get the egg and sperm to combine, which in the majority of cases it won't, the various gene expressions are not always compatible across the species and cause many undesirable traits that stop the development in the womb , sometimes even before it's got past the few hundred cells stage. If however you can understand, compute and map the various combinations then you can try the most promising combinations experimentally. This used to be beyond the limits of science, but nowadays we are on the cusp of big breakthroughs in this area. An army of human monkey soldiers used to be science fiction but at the rate we're going, it could be only 20 or 30 years away from being a possibility. China, and others, are playing a very dangerous game here. It's like the early days of atomic research and the bomb. We're close to be able to develop things where we are not fully aware of all of the potential dangers.

The EU currently bans funding for this type of research in the EU member states, so scientists migrate to countries that allow them to continue. Many of the top Scientists are driven solely by the fact that they will be the first to make the breakthrough without considering the consequences. I think to be the best in your field, you have to be a bit, or a lot mad.

That's the definition of a species. If it can't produce fertile offspring it's not the same species.

That' what I meant. Horses and Donkeys can produce Mules, but Mules are sterile.

Lions and Tigers are different species, but can produce fertile offspring. Same Genus, different Species

Well I for one loved the little fella's smiley face.

Proper smashed the course. Probably now relaxing and smoking a pipe whilst riding his unicycle.

Just wished he had done that "fold your lips inside out" thing, but no biggie
