As far as the mammoth goes. While it would be nice to see one, I'm wondering if there's really any point to meddling with the DNA of a species that no longer exists. Maybe there's a reason they no longer roam the earth...perhaps, with today's population, the earth couldn't handle them?

A successful career as a freelance commercial writer, for one.

I think thats more of a work-skill, Animal. But keep practising, I'm told that social skills are easy to learn. Tho, why anyone would want to have 'em... :)

Well, that shows how much you know about being an independant contractor... Personally, I like earning a living.

Is it the process you like, or the results?

On the point of moral superiority, everyone on this forum is a criminal. We have too many twisted, backward, nonsensical laws for you to have not broken any, Animal. :)

And if you truly didn't, you'd be as twisted and backward as the laws you're abiding by.

Hell, there are also many cases for lying not being immoral. But I find it hard to believe you've never told a lie, thus we can probably conclude you're lying about not being a liar.

At any rate, Animal, either by your code or mine (and probably both), you're as immoral as the rest of us, if not more so.

Shall we end this fine pissing contest? Cheers.

And this is why I'm glad I'm a self-admitted amoral bastard. *grin*

Moral superiority is overrated, anyway.

I don't agree with your point, for a number of reasons, but I'll drop the urinary range and accuracy contest, sure.

Goedel's law apparently need not involve nazis. Any thread of interest will degenerate to SOMETHING, even if it doesn't go that far. For us, it's the royal vs. the evil clown. :)

Don't you mean Godwin's? Godel's is that you can never understand it all...
