Genetic Profiling

No, not the type you'd seen in "Gattaca"... this time it is a SCAM from the present, not the future.
A company, called My Gene Profile (mychildtalentprofile.com) seems to be offering genetic profiling for children to discover their "hidden" talents. I can't stop thinking that this is like the company that used to sell Moon property... oh, wait, they still do it: lunarregistry.com!!! One must wonder, who would ever fall for obvious scams like the ones above?

I guess, like P.T. Barnum once allegedly said: "There's a sucker born every minute".

Thanks to Pharyngula for the amusing link.
