    Maybe, but I think we'd start having wars because of PMS instead of oil. :rolleyes:

    If these same scientists can get two females to produce with a father, then maybe they can get to Microsoft programs to run without crashing. just a thought.

    I dunno if I'd get too excited yet... Did you see what they had to do to one of those mice to make this happen? :eek:
    This does show some promise for stem cell research however. Too bad that kind of research is nearly verboten in this country.

    There was other research I saw someplace where they coaxed a somatic cell to undergo meiosis and make 4 sperm. Now if you were to take the cells from a woman and then dig this coaxing you could have a 2 mommied child with far fewer hoops.

    Mommy mouse. Or, mommy mouse.

    Or are you trying to say women can't play 'catch'?

    We will just have to wait and see where this experiment will lead. Just because it can be done with a mouse doesn't mean that it can be done even with a higher mammal.
