[citation][nom]Curnel_D[/nom]Ehh, just a note, the last link with the generic 'more on this topic' leads to a borked page in IE, chrome, and Opera.[/citation]
Yes, it does. We know, but thanks for mentioning it.

Wow, that pork sounds even worse than ludafisk. Why eat it when there are all those deer out in the woods waiting for you?

Christmas ham, anyone? Scientists in the Netherlands have made a breakthrough in creative cuisine by growing the first pork in a laboratory. The scientists, who haven’t actually tasted their creation yet, extracted cells from the muscle of a live pig and then incubated them in a solution containing nutrients to encourage them to multiply indefinitely.

The result was sticky muscle tissue that requires exercise, like human muscles, to turn it into a tougher steak-like consistency. The problem is that the resulting pork is rather soggy and mealy, but the researchers say they are finding ways to punch up its texture and flavor. If this little holiday piggy came from the lab instead of the farm, greenhouse gas emissions could be sliced by 18%, according to the UN. That’s something to chew on.
That's why we're never going to get rid of pigs' flu.. That's why we were told from the beginnig that pigs are bad creatures and you eating it.. getting sick of it.. and trying to multiply what's connected to it! NOT RIGHT

I'm looking forward to paper batteries.


Put a couple hundred into a spiral binder, and the term "killer notebook" takes on a whole new meaning.

"Researchers at the company’s lab in Pittsburgh say that within 10 years they will create brain-implantable sensors that can control computers and other devices" - Hopefully they don't start controlling the human brain :p
