Default Re: ORGANICS SUCK!!!! (A Tribute Thread)

No need to speculate, we've already put a spider's silk producing gene into goats. It comes out the nipples.

Thing is, spiders don't have webshooters. They have spinnerets. Webshooters mold fluid into complicated strands, nets and projectiles that are fired long distance, unlike anything on a spiders body. Producing silk is one thing, but wrist bound webshooters are just too convenient and effective to not be the product of design.

It'd be like getting DNA from a fly and then growing a propeller.
