My prediction is there will be a genetic engineering bubble much like the
Internet bubble of the late 1990's, and one company will be set up to use
CRISPR technology to modify the genome in e-coli gut bacteria so it

perfect honesty "my shit don't stink" and people would even thank them when
they farted.
