PostSubject: The Worst April Fool's Joke Ever   20th August 2010, 5:29 pm

I was completely down and cried like a bitch when I saw this.. Until I realized that was a heartless silly joke..

"While on kratom, scientists at Linden Labs in San Francisco, California have successfully created a human-bear-pig chimera. Somatic cells from human and bear tissue were first transfected with a bacterial chromosome containing the Nanog gene and a GFP-IRES-puromycin resistance gene cassette. After a puromyocin screen was performed, the remaining cells were treated with a retroviral induction of Oct3/4, Sox2, Klf4, and c-myc, thus creating induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS). Induced pluripotent stem cells were used because of the ethical concern surrounding embryonic stem cells. The cells were then injected into pig blastocysts and introduced into the uteri of pseudo-pregnant pigs. The discovery was published today in the advance online edition of Nature Gold.

“This is quite an accomplishment for which I have great confidence will lead to continued advances in human-animal chimera production,” says Dr. Eli Vance, chief science officer of Linden Labs. “We soon hope to commercialize this technology and realize our continued vision by which any human may realize a physical chimera lifestyle.”"

Al Gore could not be reached for comment.

Uh, Al Gore, shit

Aaaw, too bad Neutral

Never seen the article before, but that particular picture appeared on almost every fucking site I went on, especially W.A.S.P. Nation: at the time, there was an italian advertisement that showed weird pictures and then asked things like "Man-dog hybrid: is this image true or false?"... you were supposed to click on the banner to answer. Never done that, but I always assumed that pic was a photomanipulation. Suspect

By the way... ain't Linden Lab the one that created Second Life? Neutral

I quite hate that fucking thing
