Transgenic animals

It seems that, these days,
everything from milk
cartons to laptops are
masters of motility,
capable of self-upgrading
or evolving into new
forms. What was once
an implantable cardiac

pacemaker in Edward
the Confessor, one of
the last Anglo-Saxon
kings of England, is now
playing a softball game
in the old men's league.
