Rat-brains can fly planes

Sounds like science fiction, but it's really happening. Check out this article, really interesting stuff:

Neural cells taken from a rat brain were trained to fly a flight-simulator like a biological computer. Some want to put hybrid bio/synthetic computers in real unmanned planes and other things once more research is done. How about that for the humankind? Now if only we could get into space cheaper we could do some more neat stuff.

Cool! Creepy!
I have to say, I find this kind of thing thoroughly fascinating!
Nevermind the moral/ethical implications...
What's this going to mean for hi-jackers? Maybe they'll need cheese instead of bombs? Or something.
Sorry, this kind of thing is just so big, and so far reaching (potentially), it seems sometimes that the only way to really deal with it is to make jokes. You know, kind of not really deal with it at all?
