Our scientists are working hard to learn how the world works. However, sometimes they need to have a little direction. A news story from Reuters reported that a team of 100 scientists have mapped the entire genome of the centipede! What an amazing and valuable discovery! Did you know that they have many legs and no eyes? Oh, I guess you could tell that without mapping the genome.
I wonder if any of those 100 scientists ever thought that it might be a better use of their time to map the genome of the ebola virus so a cure could be found. I guess a few thousand African lives are not important enough to deter them from their amazing centipede discoveries.
