Quote of the Week

Or
“The Joys of Science”

“David Mooney, a chemical engineer at the University of Michigan, and Dr. James Martin of Carolina Medical Center are working on growing women’s breasts in the laboratory. They hope, soon, to seed a three-dimensional scaffold molded in the shape of a breast with breast cells and then implant it into a woman’s chest. The fabricated cells would then grow on the scaffolding until a new, living breast was formed.”

    That is the creepiest thing I’ve ever heard. That is some severe creepiness.

    But what if it doesn’t stop growing?

  3. G-Fry says:

    I’m seriously undecided on if I want “living breasts” or not. It’s hard enough to please a woman, but now I’ve got to make sure the boobies are having a good time? Come on, ya’ll. Let’s slow it down a notch.

  4. Christina says:

    Ahh! If they never stopped growing it’d be like one of those old horror films that they’d watch on the Angry Beavers. I’m going to have nightmares now. Giant boobs rampaging through the city! I’m sore afraid.

  5. Steve says:

    Wow, I haven’t watched Angry Beavers in YEARS. I wonder what growing breasts would do to skin…

  6. Christina says:

    Yeah…I like the Angry Beavers. Zim’s voice is the same as Daggit’s. Or rather, the same voice actor does the voices for both of those characters. I think that living breasts would be tough on the skin. The skin is an organ too, so it seems logical that there could potentially be the same problems with skin acceptance as there are with any other organ donation. Crazy.

  7. Easy says:

    Think of the convenience! You could have boobies in every room. Oh, the possibilities…
