    This will get too political. I suggest putting this in Tin Pan Alley in the TB Lounge.

  6. More teriyaki for everyone! Yay!

    I kid. Seriously tho, this stuff is crazy...the whole "playing God" thing. Next we'll have Scarlett Johansen doubles running amok.

    Wait a minute, that's a good thing. I'll take two please. Oh, ok, and a doggie too.

    Cloning COULD be a useful tool, but it can and is dangerous. I would not mind seeing cloned organs for people who need them... But when will the cloning stop? When we create a super human race that will replace us? Or when we engineer children for people, and make them the best genetic specimens possible? I think careful consideration needs to go into how we use this technology.

  10. Jeebus H. Christmas guys, I wasn't gonna schtupp the doggie...even I have limits...wow.

    someone/thing has to operate the camera when BOTH Scarlett clones are "detained". Double DUH! You know, engineer opposing thumbs on the poochy for the extreme closeup button?

    :D

    I agree.
     
  14. "Mon Rominee" and "limits." There are two words that go together better than chocolate and peanut butter. :rollno:

    Or Tank Girl.

    Engineer a Jet Girl and I'm in.

    Scientists aren't exactly known for "careful consideration" of somethings use when it comes to the development of technology. The nuclear bomb and wish bass are good examples of this. The question never seems to be "should we"?, but the answer always seems to be "because we can."

    I have never seen nuclear devices and Wish basses compared. That, sir, shall be my signature.

    This does sort of make sense, though. If you've ever been to South Korea, you would definately notice that dog is frequently seen hanging next to pig in the butcher shop.
    I've had dog-on-a-stick with wonton soup and OB beer from street vendors there. It's not too bad, and definately less stomach-churning that some of the things sold by street vendors in the Philippines. I don't recommend the monkey-on-a-stick and Balyut there. The beer (San Miguel) is OK though.

  18. I was going to make a sick crack about endless food supply, but I seem to have been beaten to it.

    When I was in South Korea a person I spoke with said they used to eat dog because it wasn't wasteful. A dog was enough meat for a single meal. Now with refrigeration more common they use animals more normally recognized as food sources for meat.

    I never had any, but they eat dried squid chips instead of popcorn when going to the movies.

    mmmm, dried squid
