Bacteria stably use arsenic in their DNA! This is totally sweet.

And a +1 for evolution. If you disagree, you should try eating arsenic–after all, if it’s part of God’s plan…seriously, the whole point with evolution is that anything that works insofar as reproduction is concerned can live, as long as it doesn’t have to make too many compromises–for instance, extreme tallness in humans goes with sooner organ failure.
