Check this out.

That's right. For a mere $500,000 you can get your genome mapped onto a CD. Can you play it in your stereo? Probably not. Would it make for interesting reading? Who knows.
I know! It will make a wonderful anniversary present. "Honey! I mapped your genome! Do you like it?" [img]graemlins/saywhat.gif[/img]

I wish I had the $500,000 to spend.... [img]graemlins/petard.gif[/img]

IIRC, genomes are the genetic code of your DNA. Took several years to map it too.

If you put it on the PC does your face show up and start speaking to you?
Can you put it in a CD copier?
What WOULD it sound like on a player?!

Oh, and is it just a blank CD with 'Your Genome' written on it? Cos If so, I'll save my money thanks
