From the Department of Truly Terrible Ideas
Just a quick note that there are scientists out there struggling with whether the Neanderthal that they are working to create from preserved DNA should be brought to term in a human or a chimpanzee.
Really? We really want to bring back a sub-species of humans? I'm sure we'll know just what to do with the Neanderthals once we bring some back. Especially if they've been created by resequencing chimpanzee DNA and birthed by chimpanzee mothers.
