For some reason this show popped into my head today. I used to love the adventures of Johnny Sokko and his Giant Robot . I can't remember anything about the show other than staring slack jawed at this towering superhero robot.Giant Robo was to be Big Fire’s vanguard of destruction. Dr. Garulcher built Giant Robo to be the most power robot in the world. Armed with an array of deadly weapons and possessing incredible strength and power, Giant Robo is indeed a force to be reckoned with. Giant Robo is powered by Nuclear Engines. Giant Robo can only be controlled via a wrist watch communicator worn by Kusama Daisaku. Since Kusama Daisaku was the first voice Giant Robo heard, he is the only person able to command Giant Robo

See, this is why I love biosciences. Take some pigs, mix'em with jellyfish, and you get Day-Glow Porky. Very cool. If you read the article you get to the medical benefits of glowing tissues (can track them in vivo, etc. blah blah). But that's pretty boring next to the idea of a pig you can read by.
