A Method of Human Cloning for sale on Ebay

i can't tell if this is some sort of elaborate spam, but i just received and email from the seller of a purported method of human cloning for sale on ebay that's already bidding for over $87,000:

"This method is novel and original, and I will turn over all claims on it, including my share of the Nobel Prize, to the highest bidder. The main improvement over current methods is that in this case, genes turned off (or on) in the somatic cell which should be turned on (or off) in the zygote will be corrected by specialized extranuclear RNA in the gametes, reducing the incidence and severity of defects in the clone."

as enticing as it sounds, i think i'll have to sit out this round of bidding.

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
