    Human organs could be grown in animals within a year

    Human organs 'could be grown in animals within a year' - Telegraph

    I am not sure if the Telegraph is considered mainstream or not, hope I put it in the right forum.

    I find this very interesting! Thoughts?

    I prefer the idea of 3D printing human organs, it seems more practical and less gross. However, it sounds like this method is closer to being a reality, so whatever works I guess
    If you hate capitalism so much, then just write everything in lower case. Problem solved.

    Re: Human organs could be grown in animals within a year

    I can see a few problems with this. It means muslims and jews probably will not be able to get the organs. I would imagine a bacon made organ would probably not fit within the realm of their religious concerns. Then you have the problem of rednecks who would run out of bacon and perhaps feel their new organs could be fried up so they do not have to run to the store. Bacon is a truly valuable dietary staple of the redneck american. They put it in everything, and many of them reject science and intelligence. If we have to put warning labels in obvious places to keep people from downing a bottle of bleach I am sure we will have to tattoo these new organs with "Do not eat."But it sounds like a good idea overall despite the odd problems humans will make with it.

    In another largely unreported development that's been occurring for decades, animal brains, specifically armadillo brains, have been successfully grown in the skulls of liberals. Researchers note an IQ drop-off from those grown in real armadillos, but are pleased none-the-less in the general increase in IQ for liberals.

    Lol...that reminded me of my older boys catching a Armadillo, that thing was pissed..

    They seemed proud until I told them the Armadillo is the only other creature ( other than man ) that carries the bacteria that causes Leprosy.

    And let's not forget the PETA and vegan types who would object to the use of animals for this purpose. I suppose there's no down side if they only confine that restriction to themselves. The trouble is that liberals always seem to want to pull everyone else down, too.

    Meanwhile, grow me a new liver ASAP, please.
