Looking over the spam in my e-mailbox this morning, I'm suddenly struck by what seems to me a tragedy of medical science and bioengineering. I mean, how terrible is it that we have the ability to expand parts of the human body, and yet our abilities in this regard are limited to male genitalia and the female bosom? Why can't we have, say, "Make your pancreas BIGGER!" pills for diabetics, for example? Wouldn't basketball players like to find a little pump-device that enlarges their hands?
It just doesn't seem fair, does it?
