well to pull this trick off they will have to do one thing I've never seen done.
Take a known sequence of dna... Using something called a PCR... build there own
original dna strand from that stored sequence. implant that created string and see if you can
built a viable animal from that... if they pull off that trick... I'll believe they can pull of a mammoth.

All tho I would rather see an Tasmanian tiger or an ardwolf . Both of these animals died off in the last
100 years.. How about starting with something more recent.

Hitler was a creation of his environment not his DNA. Any number of people could have been the next
Hitler, he's views were not unique. But he was the first one who was able to implement his dark actions
on a world wide scale do to an advancement in technology.

This is why were are constantly bombarded by world war 2 crap.
World war 2 games, movies about world war 2, Movies about "The Holocaust",
Movies about people who survived the Holocaust.

I know this sounds all mind contorlie, but this is all so that future generations would be sensitized,
inoculated to the Idea - thought patterns of a possible next Hitler and prevent that person with those
thought or ideas from gaining power.

With that said, why would someone want to waste there time cloning a human? it's not like there rare.

I want to make custom animals I just don't have the life span to put into learning to do it.

No i think the reason we have alot of WW2.0 movies and games is because people like them and are willing to pay for the good ones. I dont think the people behind 'call of duty' make games did it so to prevent something similar happening in the future by showing us how awful it was. They made it because its a profitable business.

Of course back in the 50's and 60's there were hundreds of WW2 films being made by people who had experienced war first hand, but not so much these days.

it WAS just a joke :P I know darn well that it's not his DNA...but still - I found it a funny joke, could have atleast given me THAT much :) It's all in the image that he had given himself...and even though he would be an exact clone, in today's world I'm sure he wouldn't live - as he may not know, but billions of people do.
