glow in the dark cats

i found this blog online when i searching for a "glowing white person" (like myself). it is too funny not to post.

Scientists at the Gyeongsang National University in South Korea have cloned cats that have the ability to glow-in-the dark when exposed to ultraviolet light. By inserting a virus into the skin cells of a mother cat and placing those contaminated cells into the womb, scientists were able to prove that it was possible to clone an animal with a manipulated gene. Apparently, this development could allow for a better understanding of human genetic diseases in the future. But what about the benefits of glowing cats? If you ask me, cats that could truly glow-in-the-dark would make for an unique and styilsh night-light. And, much like the new litrospheres, they last for about 12 years. The only downside is that the latter requires no power source while cats require a steady diet. Still, the crazy cat lady down the street could have the most power efficient house in town


  1. I remember reading about this a few months ago in The Wall Street Journal.
    Those kookie Koreans!

  2. Just what you want... A glow-in-the-dark night light perched right on your chest/forehead every night... ;)
