It may seem like a crackpot dream, but today's New York Times reports movie pixels have successfully been encoded into the DNA of living cells frequently found in the human stomach -- E. coli -- which like to hide in the gastrointestinal tract of humans and other living creatures.

The announcement came from the Harvard University Medical School. This bacteria often causes, at the least, diarrhea, and at the worst, human organ-failure that'll kill ya.

The researchers used what is likely a digitized version of probably the oldest surviving motion picture -- Eadweard Muybridge's 1878 film of a galloping horse and got this result:

The discovery has far more potential in medical applications than in movies -- where projection rooms would perhaps have to be equipped with new toilets and sanitary facilities since E. Coli is rather contagious -- Steve Yohe can elaborate on the DNA of this bacteria being he's a nurse.

The article, whose author, the Times's well-regarded science-reporter Gina Kolata, is confused (or her editors are) at times and appears to have no grasp of the difference between film images and digital ones, does make the main point that scientists have and can now record images on gut bacteria.

Who ever thought?

This is not a humor post although most movies are shit and now they can be recorded ON shit.
