How would I go about creating a half-man, half-monkey-type creature? I'm sorry, that would be playing God. God shmod! I want my monkey-man.

Moving ever closer to gattaca. The first step is getting enough DNA on file so that they can determine what genes will make for extra smart/athletic babies. Then they can start trying to fertilize eggs and test to keep the best ones. If parts of the code can be edited then who knows where we'll end up. There was some slight mention of that in gattaca, give him an extra music appreciation gene or something 5 grand.

And extra fingers to play the piano with.

Imagine what will happen to the porno industry.

It's hard to say. i mean every guy will be born with a big wang. At least as big as is deemed pleasurable for a woman. I mean at some point bigger won't be better. And all girls would be born with whatever breast size is deemed more attractive. I mean there could be some variation among parents but there would still be a norm. But for any fetish there's some guy who wants to see it so it is interesting to think if there will be people to fulfill it. porn with guys with tiny dicks girls with giant feet or tiny feet, etc.

A more interesting thought quesiton though is about the future of homosexuals and different races. If you could program it out would anyone want a gay baby? Would everyone start having white children? If you really believe that being white would be a huge advantage would you give that advantage to your children, or try to teach them that they should be proud of their race and make the best of it. Maybe there would be some other color like purple that would be really expensive to make children's skin, so it would become the new mark of privillege. Only the wealthiest kids have purple skin and otherwise it doesn't matter if your white/black/whatever if your not purple, it's all the same.

I would give my kid genes to make him a psychic cyborg who can time travel.
