Also "Why Scots wear kilts" but I didn't say that!

A future chapter in somebody's Bible...(much better!)

"Now scientists create a sheep that's 15% human"

"Scientists have created the world's first human-sheep chimera - which has the body of a sheep and half-human organs.

The sheep have 15 per cent human cells and 85 per cent animal cells - and their evolution brings the prospect of animal organs being transplanted into humans one step closer."

The Magic Eight hox hold both this story and its subject together.

Next, an incubator for brains? And instead of making a sperm deposit for a future pregnancy you instead make one that can be used to grow spare parts for an injured child, lover, or for your cat. Drop some hox for the orbital frontal areas into Piewacket and give her a conscience...
