Scientists are contemplating the possibilities of bringing the Woolly Mammoth back from extinction, after reconstructing some of its genome. Wouldn’t it be cool if they created some kind of zombie/undead mammoth that roams the Earth shooting people with its laser-eyes, and stomping on countless buildings in an attempt to overthrow the human race? No? We all know what happened in Jurassic Park!
Apparently the price tag for bringing back the mammoth is $10 million. Sure, let’s spend 10 mil on an animal that’s extinct for a reason, just for the sake of it, instead of giving the money to – I don’t know – A CHARITY!?!
A whole heap of recent scientific research has been called pointless and dangerous (i.e. the LHC experiment, which I actually think is worthwhile), but hey, it might turn out to be the greatest scientific event since the invention of sliced bread (that one took a lot of thought 😉 )
