Oh man, Jesus is gonna be sooooo pissed. I bet he doesn't come back from the dead for three *months* this year.

There's hope for zombie Jesus yet!

Mitosis issues don't affect Jesus, since he's haploid.

I think that's probably what the "H" stands for in "Jesus H. Christ!"

All joking aside, though, this is pretty incredible.

Will I finally be able to grow the thorny impenetrable exoskeleton of my dreams?

Does this mean those spam emails saying you can get a bigger penis will be for real now???

Oh, they're for real, Jelreyn. They just don't work on you.

Yes to both of you, but only by combining the two concepts.

No big deal. Call me when they get to squeeze two twins into one person. Extra points if they merge Danny deVito and Arnold Schwarzenegger

Oops - sorry, must have messed up when I recopied it. Thanks for correcting me, termite!

I don't think it's quite the breakthrough some might make it out to be, but it's certainly interesting! The most interesting statement is that they had changed a process they earlier thought impossible to affect, which supports the idea that other unexpected successes like this are possible.

That was nothing. Thanks for posting it in the first place.

Hurrah- at last we will be able to invent by far the messiest death imaginable- causing you to revert to foetal form in a few short minutes, before you decay into a globule of dead stem cells.

Or worse--just when you sighingly disconnect from this blue fleshy pumpkin, you and your soul, like centromeres, could be forced to re-visit your past. From the release of death, back to arranged reality.

Yup, you'll just need to print them.
