I wonder if he included that cheesy porn 'stache...

A scientist has achieved a world first... by cloning himself.



In a breakthrough certain to provoke an ethical furore, Samuel Wood created embryo copies of himself by placing his skin cells in a woman's egg.

The embryos were the first to be made from cells taken from adult humans.

Although they survived for only five days and were smaller than a pinhead, they are seen as a milestone in the quest for treatments for diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.
But critics fear the technology could be exploited by mavericks to clone babies and accused the scientists of reducing the miracle of human life to a factory of spare parts.

Seriously, could you be more arrogant? What makes him think that there should be more than one of him? Only the most obnoxious people will choose to do this too. Can you imagine 50 Gilbert Gottfrieds walking around? :suicide:

If I clone myself and then I have relations with my clone does that mean I am Ghey, or just masterbating?

If I was told a doctor could cure my grandfathers Alzheimer's by taking the dna from one of his skin cells, inserting it into a human egg and growing stem cells that are genetically identical to my grandfather, I would be all for it, but if the doctor is never allowed to do research in that area, we would never know. I think you can expect cures for many debilitating diseases over the next few decades.

There's no money in cures. Thus, the religious groups don't want it. Figure that one out.

Who says the doctor is never allowed to do research in that area?
