Bacteria evolve into tiny running sausages, enjoy Hannity on FM radio

Filed under: Uncategorized — ononehand @ 11:07 am

An article on MSNBC warns that Salmonella typhimiruim bacteria are very near to developing antibiotic resistance due to antibiotic pollution and overuse – and the next Salmonella scare could get us there.

But the photo on MSNBC says even more. The bacteriam appear to have sprouted tiny legs and are now able to scurry around like miniature neon-colored galloping sausages. Also, the tiny antennae you see springing out of the heads of several individuals are able to receive and transmit FM signals, and we’ve been told that they’re huge fans of Sean Hannity’s radio program.

To parlay their rapid development, these bacterium have the added advantage – one that humans do not have – of being able to double in population once ever 20 minutes. Therefore it’s clear that once they sprout opposable thumbs and invent the use of nuclear fusion, we are all screwed.

  3. Well I bet that will happen in 2012.

    But are all the populations evolving the same way. I wouldn’t be surprised if there was already a small subset of the group that can do extraordinary things. And when they touch they can exchange genes through their cell membranes.

    I need a UV sanitizing lamp.
