It'd suck if one of the scientists fucked the ma moth corpse and when they tried to get the dna they got HIS dna and then they recombined it with elephants to create a viable humanphant which would have sideburns and a jew fro and people would just think "oh he's a woolly fellow" unaware that it was actually human characteristics being expressed in the abomination they so arrogantly created.

Useful like what? There's not many problems affecting us that the government can solve, it's just the private sector is a greedy shitshow and people willingly enable it by doing things like taking out a loan if they get priced out instead of bitching about the price and demanding a lower one.

The government COULD, say, split up healthcare monopolies but that would be pretty cheap to do.

I remember some bullshit about this a couple years ago. Some shit about a "South Korean research facility injecting mammoth DNA into a pregnant dog's babies which will later after birth develop into mammoths". That was all bullshit from what I know. They used a whole bunch of the pictures of that mammoth you see in that picture there. Some scientists had a theory that the reason there was so little blood in the mammoth's body was because it was "stabbed by an icicle when it slipped and fell in cracks between glaciers" or some shit. That's at least reasonable. In that south korean bullshit they said it was being "cloned". I can't remember the original videos nor articles but I definitely remember it.

why's this even hard we can already make embryos from skin cells just do that and stick the embryo in an elephant
>>
>>3924637

It doesn't work that way. Woolly mammoths went extinct about 10,000 years ago. Even though they are related through evolution, they're still different animals. Also, they're pretty far apart. There's a lot more to it that I don't know nor understand but as far as I do know, its not like a person can fuck a monkey and expect the monkey to birth something in between. I've read about it being possible but like I said I don't really know. And who the hell would fuck a monkey, anyway?

Why clone a momoth? Its ecosystem doesn't exist anymore. We should be bringing hybrids to term, like catdogs or ostrichhorses.

The mrna experiment has failed though.
>>
>>3924471
Impossible and they just lost $15 million kek.
>>
>>3924484
Because its impossible. You will never get a viable living mammoth from it. Any hell spawn that could be made by sticking thing in a living elephant is going either be miscarried or come out deformed and stillborn.
>>
>>3924471
why? even if they made 2 there's not enough genetic variants for them to procreate and bring back the mammoths, the thing will just be a rare freak and when it dies mammoths will go extinct again.
>>
>>3924731
I agree only because its impossible to bring back an actual viable living mammoth. If it was feasible I say bring back mammoths and stick them everywhere in Siberia and North America and wherever in Europe can fit them. But I agree better to try and salvage species recently extinct. Or modify current elephants to be more like mammoths and spread them into more northern habitats.
>>
>>3924815
I mean I agree fuck cagies but its not hard to clear the road and the pavement at the same time. Maybe the feminist policy was to just do an overall shitty job and then blame men.
>>
>>3925132
If they can do it and repopulate siberia with then I say why not? But there is not going to be a viable animal produced simply due to the lack of an adequate host and not having undamaged DNA.
>>

Not really. What can really save species from extinction is habitat conservation, and it doesn't cost nearly as much.
>>
>>3924743
that money wasn't actually given for research about glaciology and feminism, it was the sum total of their grants over a five year period including other studies

secondly, they're not totally wrong. if you work in antarctica there's a shitload of sexual abuse and gender based bullying, mainly by male scientists against female scientists, but also directed at academics towards blue collar workers stationed there. it's a definite hierarchy. the mountaineering community isn't much different, people get away with all kinds of shit in remote places.

not that any of you read it.

just recently read a review claiming that all known mamoth DNA are all fragments, and even though they found some original mamoth fragments (like mamoth dna is 0,4% different from elephant one) they don't know where to put in elephant dna to create complete cell to start the clone
that seem to biggest problem among the others, so seems it's not going to happen

I am an optimist so I think I will live to see a genetically manufactured mammoth, but I will be very very old when they do it.
The ova present in the baby wooly will be too degraded, we will have to make an approximation using methods which could black-cross any future attempts. Better to store it like the priceless commodity it is, sell it to JJ or a disgusting university. . .which is my suspicion regarding this (((russian))) venture.

I think, 20 years from now, they will be able to build a median genetic sample from computer logic as robust as a living sample, I think the mystery of our sexy bits will be solved, they will have the entire meiotic cycle down better than mother nature. At titanic expense, my childlike future will be able to make a living replica of a mammoth egg and sperm cell through computer aided design.

But not now. Oh no. The cost dear god the costs, having to deal with indians and their elephants, the miscarriages and bad press. This won't happen. It's a press job.

Sorry for my poor english.

Sure. But right now sports generates many hundreds of billions of dollars per year in revenue and it most goes to approximately 10000 people who were already super rich. The athletes and the workers in the team and league organizations currently make less than 20% of that revenue. It would be more equitable if it was more like 50%
