make your own unicorn

There is a patent on a method of growing real, live unicorns. The process involves surgical alteration of a one-week old goat, arranging its' horn buds so that they grow together. The patent claims that said unicorn would be ideal for use as a guard animal, as it would have higher general intelligence and physical attributes (as compared to what, exactly, is unclear). The US Patent Office awarded patent US4429685 to Timothy G. Zell in 1984.

    as far as the claims that they are smarter, salamanders with a surgically implanted eye right over the pineal gland are smarter than normal.
