A story taken from George Romero
For those of you with access to the New York Post I advise you to look on the cover.

There's a story about a group of scientists doing research in Pittsburg. They have successfully created, what they dubbed "zombie dogs". They managed to revive a dog that had been scientifically dead for three hours. They did this by draining the blood from the dog's veins and replacing it with a cold saline soloution, bringing the dogs temp down to -3 celcious. Three hours later, the put the blood back in and revived the dog.

They said that this is the first step towards such acts as keeping someone in cryogenic stasis for space travel, keeping a coma patient alive until medical science can cure them, and preserving the body during long surgery.

So what do you all think? Is this a medical marvel or is this messing with nature?

Robot Security
I found this article while reading the morning news. I found it interesting seeing how it is very much out of a sci-fi book. I mentioned it to a friend and the thought came up that it was odd that humans: 1 - are constantly congradulating themselves for their own genius, and 2 - are afraid that our own creations will view us as inept and destroy us. My friend maigo pointed out that most of humanity isn't religious anymore but follows science. He feels that since we turned our back on "God", we subconciously think that the same will happen with our own creations.

While our discussion was a little off-topic considering the source I thought I would share anyway. Please, read the article and post your thoughts on it or our discussion.
