I was reading(last days) Pâté de Foie Gras, a science fiction short story by Isaac Asimov . In this story, a nameless Department of Agriculture employee speaks about the discovery on a farm in Texas of a goose that lays golden eggs. That goose is transforming an isotope of oxygen into gold. The goose's liver is also able to catalyze nuclear reactions. Huh, yea ? The story is more than a SF because it's asking an open mind from the reader. The end is unexpected by itself. The story has just a possible solution. But, since the story is written, the theory of cloning has created a second (possible)solution.
Now, I really want to eat a pate so...let's go to the recipe for having that gorgeous pâté de foie gras.
