Pharming for Superbugs

Pharming for Superbugs

Interesting, if brief, article on antibiotic-resistant bacteria being found in pig feces. Could you farm resistant bacteria and develop strains to seed into an enemy population to encourage social disruption? Mine them for resistance genes to splice into your lab-grown superbug? Maybe I’m wearing my inner mad scientist on my sleeve, here.

Monday Music: Nick Cave – Fifteen Feet Of Pure White Snow

We got around four inches of snow here from Captain Winter Storm Nemo, and back home in Michigan they got even more. I always think of this song when we get a heavy snowstorm, a favorite song from a favorite artist off a favorite album, And No More Shall We Part. Happy Monday to all the snowbound. And the rest of you, I guess.
