The sky is not falling -- it is filled with radio waves. What some call the “Golden Age of Wireless,” citing the tera- and zeta-Byte data feeds consumed Facebook and the like, may likely resemble a Rorschach test, in which RF equipment suppliers impose their own order on otherwise ambiguous picture.

Humans have somewhere between 20,000 to 25,000 protein-coding genes, which places us somewhere between a chicken (~16,500 genes) and a grape (~30,500 genes).
