An Excuse for Weird Research3

A new break-through (that should interest the broken-hearted friend-zoned) just came to fruition. Leading scientsts have actually created a heart and manipulated it to function on it’s own without any assistance.

Bio-engineering rocks!

One way or another, we’re going to be enhancing our bodies through the use of bioengineering new parts for ourselves for longer lifespans or through cybernetics. My money is on cybernetics, who wouldn’t want a friggin’ laser on their forehead?

But bioengineering owns this day. What set this group apart from the other scientists was their use of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells), which are basically matured human cells “reprogrammed” to behave as if they were embryonic cells. If you want to get into the techno gobblety gook, here you go.

Awesome possum stuff, folks.

This news leaves me a little less worried to go to town on these super nachos.
