    hmm. atleast when you get sea monkies, they are real! they die in like two days though..

    or they have those things at walmart.. you can buy a "frog habitat" and get tadpoles in the mail..then you let them grow in the pond and as they get bigger they can utilize the rest of the dome

    I went to their website and if this is a hoax they have gone through a lot of trouble to look legit. One side of me feels sick and the other side of me wants one. It was weird that in the FAQ`s they said if your pet dies, you can barry? it or you can send it back for bio-recycling, can anyone say Soylent Green??

    Not necessarily a "hoax"... or at least I would not call it that. It started off as a piece of modern, albeit morbid art piece. Then people started asking when they would be available... that is when the "hoax" started. But, it was not intended as such, it was made into a hoax from dumbasses.

    Is Genpets then a hoax? If it is, then so is every work of art ever created. The idea behind art, probably the most basic idea is to create an illusion. Someone who paints a tree, unless they`ve posted a note beside the painting saying "this is not a tree" ("ce ne pas une pipe?") would then be a `hoax` for the same reason. It is the image of an object that does not exist. Again, like many works of, `creation` (let`s not use the word art) be it a novel or film, the idea is to get the viewer thinking about the issues it brings up. It baffles me how many people are like "oh ha ha you got me". The idea isn`t to `get you`.... it`s to help you think....

    I`ve written the Genpets website with a heavy dose of sarcasm, so while you can`t see "the canvas" simply reading the website should be enough to kick in that this isn`t real.

    You can view my personal site here www.brandejs.ca.

The song was kinda cool though, who plays it?

    Notice that to Read the forums, you hafto logg in, in order to logg in u need to register. in order to register, u need to enter the Serial Number... try ordering one or find out where you can buy them... you wont find anything.

    I read about this year(s?) ago. i found a link that would let me order, but when i tryed, they sayd that genpets wernt allowed where i live. they must have removed the link. but belive me. its all fake, no way modern sciense can create this advanced lifeforms.

    just agree with me. THere are no God. and humans dont know enough to play him/her yet either.

    "Why is there a forum for Genpet owners if Genpets are not yet for sale?
    A select number of Genpets have been released to Bio-Genica employees for Beta Testing. This is not a public release."

    i personally think that we shouldnt be playing God though.

    If they could genetically engineer a dog that doesn`t poo then I`d buy five. If not that, then the dog that`s smart enough to not bark at every single thing that passes my house. Or maybe a dog with super absorbent fur that I can use as a hand towel that will come to it`s name. Eh one can only dream of such luxury.
