Half Animal/Half Plant - January 13th 2010, 12:54 AM

Quote:
This green slug, which is part animal and part plant, produces its own chlorophyll and so can carry out photosynthesis, turning sunlight into energy, scientists have found.
This makes me so HAPPY!

Great. Next thing we'll see bears with Venus fly traps for heads.

So help me god I will never leave the house again if that happens.


Often I lie wide awake, thinking of things I could make.
But I donít seem to have the parts to build them.
I am so scared of what will kill me in the end, for I am not prepared.
I hope I will get the chance to be someone, to be human.

in a long time,
I can say that I wanna try.
I feel helpless for the most part,
but I'm learning to open my eyes.
And the sad truth of the matter is,
I'll never get over it,
but I'm gonna try
to get better and overcome each moment
in my own way"

That's pretty amazing. Just goes to show how little we know about our living planet. Although, given the increasing acidity of the oceans and changes in ocean currents organisms like this will find it difficult to survive as their habitats die. Sorry to sound all doom and gloom, but it's true.

I love the fact that they think it wasn't born like that, as in it adapted parts of it's food. Can you imagine how easy it would be to create 'super' animals if all animals could do that.
Also, he doesn't have to eat, it just seems awesome to me xD

Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books.
Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders.
Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations.

We talked about this is class today, and it's simply amazing. It eats algae and then adapts parts of the algae to fit it's body, and thus photosynthesis. Super cool.

Haha this reminds me of my rather cruel idea to end world hunger *cough*GMing chloroplast into people*cough*
Anyway, I pretty sure algae isn't considered a plant, well a lot of it =p Besides, it's just evolution really, animals and plants already share some of the same organelles so why not chloroplast?
