Sci-Fi Thursday

We just signed up for this.

So, what if, like, 20-25 years from now, there is a small army of Samsons being trained in Morocco to assassinate foreign dictators? Or maybe there'll be a Samson-cyborg hybrid army, created for covert black ops and other scary military lingo projects? Or maybe I'll be on vacation in Vancouver and a barista at Starbucks who bears an uncanny resemblance to my first born son will say to me, "Maybe you'd like a bear claw with that latte, eh?"

The possibilities are endless. And freaky.

interesting...this is still highly controversial here and hard to do so we sort of dropped it in the pre-baby hoopla. I looked into it as one of those 'just in case' 'cover your a**' sort of things.

Yeah, it's pretty much some sort of weird, futuristic insurance policy. My doctor said it was a great thing to do if you can afford it, and since I always have an extra $2000 lying around, it was like, duh I can afford it. It was one of our first parental guilt tests. "Sure, we can fix your child's teeth. Will that $10,000 be cash or charge?" I say we passed with flying colors.
