Rat Brains - Mark of The Beast Cards (no buy/sell/trade/fly-list)

One of my favorite geek tabloid sites - The Register - had this to say about rat brains:

Florida scientists have grown a brain in a petri dish and taught it to fly a fighter plane.

"Scientists at the university of Florida taught the 'brain', which was grown from 25,000 neural cells extracted from a rat embryo, to pilot an F-22 jet simulator. It was taught to control the flight path, even in mock hurricane-strength winds."

First it's the no-fly list, next it will be the can't buy/sell/trade/no-fly list. Ever wonder if one day you'll need to wave your National ID card over the scanner to make certain you aren't a Terrorist/Democrat/to buy a loaf of bread?
