    Interesting. Race indeed has no meaning when you can re-make yourself and
your offspring.

    Already there is such a blending of DNA as to make those questionaires
(you know, those checkboxes where you are supposed to pick a race or you can
check "other") nearly obsolete!

    The checkbox will now ask for genetic assembly instead of race:

CHECK ONE: "modified", "acquired", "natural", "aggregate", "duplicate"
