I know it sounds petty now, but we were having a giant office drama over whose bioengineering project should get more priority. Would it be the hyper-gymnosperm group, or the dire rodent group? Well, that whole debate came to a crashing halt when somebody else's project started to eat Los Angeles.

The show-offs over in the mega-squid group had decided it would be a really great idea to try a beta test in the wild. You can see how well that went over. But hey โ€” at least it got us another five years of grant money.
