    Pretty incredible stuff. There was a TED talk a while back where they were reproducing organs from the cells of the original organ. Still experimental and far from being able to reproduce complicated organs, but like this, person's body didn't reject them since it was their own cells.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    Wow! Pretty incredible. I wonder if the Shrine burn centers are aware of that process. Probably are but I'm going to forward to some people to make sure.
    BTW, if you don't know it already, the Shriners have three state of the art burn centers for children in the U.S. If you know of a child that needs emergency burn treatment, or reconstruction surgery, let me, or any Shriner know ASAP.

    Absolutely amazing. Thanks for the link, Stu.

    You're right, Frank. Something like this would be right up the Shriner's alley.

    That's one of the best devices to come along in many years.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.
