To Be A Fly On That Wall

Scientists Create Remote-Controlled Flies

What I want to know is how using lasers to control the flies' brains has anything to do with "a better understanding of overeating and violence in humans." It strikes me that they have succeeded more in creating the ultimate R/C toy.

More importantly, does any of this translate into possible nerve repair technology?

And are we closer to sharks with frickin' laser beams on their heads?

That's all I want! And we haven't done it yet! Geez, what's it take to get frickin' laser beams put on their heads! Just one. That's all I ask. One. Frickin'. Laser. Beam.

Sometimes I wonder about scientists. Maybe you would jump up and down too if someone were flashing a laser in your eyes! Ahhh, my retinas once lovely now burnt to a crisp.

Finally! Justification for outfitting my fly with a tin-foil hat.
