Just in time for Christmas, a team of scientists in China were able to create ten little piglets that glow green under black fluorescent lights, thanks to a technique developed by the University of Hawaii at Manoa School of Medicine.

A group of scientists from South China Agricultural University were able to do this by injecting fluorescent protein from jellyfish DNA into pig embryos, thus creating the green-glowing pigs.

Oh, thank god. The human race has finally reached the pinnacle of its scientific potential. If only my father could have lived a few more years...

Sorry, OP; I don't mean to seem as though I'm making fun of you. It was a good find, and obviously an interesting article. I'm just sitting here shaking my head and wondering what they're going to tamper with next.
