Well Guys, I guess we're not needed anymore-can you see the Lezbian population increasing?



British scientists claim to create human sperm
July 8: A team of British scientists claim to have created human sperm from embryonic stem cells. It is a medical first they say will lead to a better understanding of infertility. ITV'S Nina Nannar reports, the process is not without controversy.
LONDON - British scientists claimed Wednesday to have created human sperm from embryonic stem cells for the first time, an accomplishment they say may someday help infertile men father children.

The technique could in 10 years allow researchers to use the basic knowledge of how sperm develop to design treatments to enable infertile men the chance to have biological children, said lead researcher Karim Nayernia, of Newcastle University, whose team earlier produced baby mice from sperm derived in a similar way.

The research, published in the journal Stem Cells and Development, was conducted by scientists at Newcastle and the NorthEast England Stem Cell Institute.

In the fictional Terminator universe, Skynet is a computer software-based defense system created by humans in the late 20th century.
In the Terminator storyline, Skynet gains sentience (http://www.orangemane.com/wiki/Sentience) shortly after it is placed in control of all of the U.S. military's weaponry and is given the task to protect humans from all threats. When they realize that it has become self-aware, and what the computer control is capable of, the human operators try to shut the system down. It then employs humankind's own weapons of mass destruction (http://www.orangemane.com/wiki/Weapons_of_mass_destruction) in a campaign to exterminate the human race.
Early development on Skynet was originally done by Cyberdyne Systems (http://www.orangemane.com/wiki/Cyberdyne_Systems), but when the company's headquarters and primary R&D facility were destroyed, the U.S. Air Force (http://www.orangemane.com/wiki/U.S._Air_Force) purchased Cyberdyne and the newly formed Cyber Research Systems Division began in-house development of a new Skynet. Skynet was first built as a "Global Digital Defense Network," given command over all computerized military hardware and systems, including the B-2 stealth bomber (http://www.orangemane.com/wiki/B-2_Spirit) fleet and America's entire nuclear weapons arsenal. The strategy behind Skynet's creation was to remove the possibility of human error and slowness of reaction time to guarantee fast, efficient response to enemy attack. As additional protection in the event of enemy infiltration the system had no centralized system core so it could not be disabled to cripple the defenses.
However, Skynet became self-aware (http://www.orangemane.com/wiki/Self-aware), alarming its creators at its newfound abilities. When the human operators attempted to shut down the system, Skynet defined all humans as its new enemy and decided to eliminate them to protect its existence. Many nuclear missiles in the United States (http://www.orangemane.com/wiki/United_States) under Skynet's control were then launched at their preset targets in Russia (http://www.orangemane.com/wiki/Russia), to which Russia responded in kind by firing many of its nuclear missiles back at the United States. As a result of the nuclear exchange, over three billion humans were killed in just minutes.

for infertile men this is very good news. well, in 10 to 20 years, it's good news for very wealthy infertile men. maybe in 50 years it will be good news for the moderately wealthy infertile men.

This sounds like an incredible waste of money.
