Stop And Think

In the movie Jurassic Park Jeff Goldblum's character says, in conversation about the Park, "Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether they could that they never stopped to think if they should." I think that quote is very apropos to a recent Japanese culinary accomplishment. Cheesecake made using bacteria found in gorilla feces.

Bad reporting. They say several times it is made from gorilla poop. But it ain't. All yogurt (which is what the cheesecake starts from) involves a bacterial digestive process. You know -- the "live cultures" the yogurt manufacturers brag about. That a bacteria may have been able to survive in a gorilla's gut doesn't mean it is unique to that environment. Very reminiscent of the quickly de-bunked "Poop in Beards" story from a few months ago.

As noted in those articles - we are all covered in bacteria that can also be found in poop. So what?

So when some kid calls you "Poopy Face" they're right?!? Hooda thunkit?

I don't know, I've seen a lot of beards with shit in them. It's probably not straight poop though. That's a good looking cheesecake. I might be tempted to take one for science.
