Japanese Scientists to "un-extinct" the mighty mammoth

        In the news recently, a Japanese scientist, professor Akira Iritani, professor emeritus at Kyoto University, is planing on using cloning technology to bring the mammoth back from extinction. When asked why they are doing this Akira replied, "sugoi desu yo"  which roughly translates into, "because it's fucking awesome."

         ....OK, he didn't really say that, and my translation is questionable, but I really can't think of any practical application for this.  It is, however, fucking awesome.

  1. The Japanese like their science to be fucking awesome.
    As I said on facebook. Plans for a Death Ray were chosen over the Atomic bomb. It didn't actually work...but if it had, it would have been fucking awesome.
