All this time, you thought it had something to do with "when a man loves a woman..." Or, maybe a Barry White song instead of a Percy Sledge (or Michael Bolton) song.
That is so early 21st century. We've moved beyond that.
Scientists have created eggs and sperm from stem cells.
Scientists at Stanford University in California found the right cocktail of chemicals and vitamins to coax the cells into becoming eggs and sperm.While this is certainly interesting, what if babies realize that they don't need men or women in order to be born?
The sperm had heads and short tails and are thought to have been mature enough to fertilise an egg.
The eggs were at a much earlier stage but were still much more developed than any created so far by other scientists.
Sure, the average baby isn't all that smart. A typical infant is only slightly smarter than the average Democrat. But what about those Baby Einsteins that the Disney company made smart?
Don't be fooled. Those Baby Einsteins are smart. They figured out how to get smart, then get their money back from Disney. Scary smart, those Baby Einsteins.
So, if smart babies learn how to make other babies, they'd probably make more smart babies. Then we'd be overrun with smart babies.
Not worried about that? Read that whole article again. Especially this part:
The science also raises the possibility of 'male eggs' made from men's skin and 'female sperm' from women's skin.Think about this. What if genius gay babies try to take over the world?
This would allow gay couples to have children genetically their own
You know what? They'll succeed?
Who would fight them? If it was Godzilla, we'd send the Army out to fight them. But it's not Godzilla. It's smart gay babies. We can't send the Army to fight smart gay babies. They're babies, for crying out loud.
On the other hand, maybe Obama would make his mind up to take a stand against smart gay babies. But I doubt it.
Smart babies, yes, he'd send the troops to fight against. But smart gay babies? That's part of his constituency. The gay part, not the baby part. Or the smart part.
So, if babies tried to take over the world, Obama would fight against them. But if smart gay babies try, we're screwed.
And not in the way that we used to make babies.
