One Damn Thing After Another

7/14/2004

Call me old fashioned, but....

That article highlights that the "Discovery Kids Ultimate Labs DNA Explorer" is,

"...the first to feature a bona fide centrifuge and electrophoresis chamber -- [it] will turn your kid on to the intricacies of genetics at an even younger age. Realistic lab equipment transforms the kitchen into a forensics lab, where your breakfast-bar biologist can extract clumps of real DNA from fruits and vegetables or solve "crimes" by revealing DNA "fingerprints"--telltale blue protein stripes in a gel mixture."
the harrow technology report
The kit itself seems a bit much for a ten year old; but imagine what happens when your script kiddie turns into someone hacking DNA. It's one thing to let a virus loose on the 'net, quite another to make one in mum's kitchen.

"Son, five of the neighbour kids have weeping green boils all over their body...they drank your "special kool aid"....Is there anything you should tell me."
