For those of you that dont know.

Henrietta Lacks was the original source of a group of cancerous cells that were cultured by George Otto Gey, thus creating the worlds first immortal cell line.

Yes, you read that correctly, from the day the cells were cultured, back in the 1950s, to today. Her cells have continually reproduced to no end, one scientist estimated that if all HeLa cells grown to this day were weighed, they would weight more than 50 million metric tons.

1: Should we use these stem cells for cancer research?
2: Nah I say we turn them into delicious hamburger patties.
#113 to #78 - Ruspanic ONLINE (08/12/2013) [-]
Srsly dude. There's no shortage of stem cells, and these stem cells weren't even human cells.

The hamburger thing is quite a worthwhile cause, actually. We'd be able to produce meat without all the ethical considerations of animal cruelty, and we'd be able to avoid most of the pollution caused by meat production.

The only issue is that right now the hamburger had to be made by putting together a bunch of millimeter-thin strips of cells, which is a pretty time-consuming way to do it. Unfortunately, growing larger chunks of meat would require some sort of circulatory system (i.e. lungs and blood vessels) to carry oxygen to all the cells.

my parents neglected me and didn't let me learn any social skills so now I blame it on a made up disease just like everyone else
User avatar #134 to #96 - Crusader ONLINE (08/12/2013) [-]
yes, but that child was obviously an over-protected spoiled brat that wasn't autistic, but just never learned how to grow up and is trapped with the mind of a child.
