Mmmmmmmmmm.....McMammoth burgers
2003-02-06 02:41:26 PM  
Finally, Big Bird will be able to prove Mr. Snuffle-Uppagus' existence.
2003-02-06 03:22:30 PM  
Sweet! Maybe they can get the nerf football girl to give birth to the clone.
2003-02-06 03:22:37 PM  
This is pretty cool news...what the hell are we going to do with Mammoths?

what age did the mammoths live in? "Triassic Park?" hell, i dont know.
2003-02-06 03:23:22 PM  
does mammoth taste like chicken?
2003-02-06 03:23:28 PM  
Hey, do you think anyone will mention Jurrasic Park in this thread?
2003-02-06 03:23:48 PM  
Good, because I just know that there's this gargantuan spaceship from beyond the galaxy that's going to destroy earth because it no longer hears the mating call of the wild woolly mammoth.
I'm just glad the Enterprise slingshotted around the sun, went back in time and discovered this in time.
2003-02-06 03:23:52 PM  
More of this shiat? First sabre-toothed tigers and now this. Just do it already. These scientists are all talk and no action.
2003-02-06 03:24:30 PM  
Rosie O'Donnell agreed to cloning? Hmm...

What? I should read the article? Ok.
2003-02-06 03:24:34 PM  
Micah476 - kill them for their tusks.
2003-02-06 03:25:08 PM  
Yeah, I think Triassic Park is accurate.
2003-02-06 03:25:26 PM  
Still no cure for cancer.
2003-02-06 03:25:44 PM  
Clone the big fat funky mammoths!

We can sell our SUVs and ride a mammoth to work.
2003-02-06 03:25:55 PM  
Didn't they sling-shot in a Klingon vessle? Holy crap. Did I just volunteer Trek trivia?
2003-02-06 03:25:58 PM  
Even if we do clone them they won't last very long. We don't know what kind of bacteria they relied on for survival.
2003-02-06 03:26:17 PM  
more mammoth info...

my favorite is the last entry:
Large, furry mammoth-like creature with extra-large eyelashes who some say doesn't exist.
2003-02-06 03:26:21 PM  
1)Clone Mammoth
2003-02-06 03:26:51 PM  
i would love to see one of these things. . .
. . . kill his creator.
2003-02-06 03:26:58 PM  
I thought it would be Pleistocene Park. The Ice Age and all.

Someday when the first mammoth breaks loose and is rampaging through Manhattan, we'll all be able to say we told them so.
2003-02-06 03:27:56 PM  
Didn't they sling-shot in a Klingon vessle? Holy crap. Did I just volunteer Trek trivia?

Yes, in The Voyage Home.
But I'm talking about real life here. I mean, REAL real life, not Trekkie real life.
2003-02-06 03:28:54 PM  
Thats great just what the earth needs another animal that can eat 400lbs a day - we already have rosie o'donnell the mammoths would just screw up the ecosystem even more.
2003-02-06 03:29:00 PM  
I read in a book once that a group of scientists studying extinict animals ate mammoth meat that had been preserved for thousands of years in ice.
2003-02-06 03:30:41 PM  
The only mammoths I care about are mammoth sized tits. But I actually like smaller ones.

2003-02-06 03:30:43 PM  
These people have no respect for Darwinism. Let the extinct stay extinct.

2003-02-06 03:30:55 PM  
Finally we will find out if mammoths really talked like Ray Romano.

\Ice Age
2003-02-06 03:31:05 PM  
What if there is some unforeseen feature of the mammoth that scientist don't know about and it really can produce some mutant deadly poison that it's able to shoot from it's snout or maybe it has mind control? I'm scared!
2003-02-06 03:31:34 PM  
That's farked up....We can clone mammoths, but we can't cure athlete's foot...
2003-02-06 03:31:35 PM  
I'll pay fifty dollars for one.

Just as long as it has only one ass.
2003-02-06 03:31:40 PM  
Well, I wonder if we could revive other similarly extinct species now, like the dodo, etc.
2003-02-06 03:31:56 PM  
And...who's going to carry this big-ass baby? They don't call them mammoth for nuthin'. They are like 3-4 times as large as elephants.
2003-02-06 03:32:17 PM  
To Paraphrase a fake scientist
"God creates prehistoric animals
God destroys prehistoric animals
God creates Man
Man destroys God
Man recreates prehistorical animals
Prehistorical animals kill Man
Woman takes over the earth"

AAAwwww who am i kidding that just means were going to get a new hunting season down here in missouri
2003-02-06 03:33:36 PM  
[image from too old to be available] How far we've come.

2003-02-06 03:33:40 PM  
SIKOBABEL~ Darwin had no respect for darwinism why should we
2003-02-06 03:34:10 PM  
Can't we clone something that won't need 400 lbs of vegetation a day to eat? Aren't there any wolly mouses or something?
2003-02-06 03:34:17 PM  
We don't know what kind of bacteria they relied on for survival.

Ummm, what?
2003-02-06 03:34:56 PM  
As long as they have learned their lesson from the first time around and not try to put all the dinasaurs into a theme park...I think it's a great idea
2003-02-06 03:34:58 PM  
"I want to know absolutely everything that's happened up till now"

"Well, let's see. First the earth cooled. And, then the dinosaurs came, but they got too big and fat, so they all died, and they turned into oil. And, then the Arabs came and they bought Mercedes Benzes."
2003-02-06 03:35:10 PM  
They don't call them mammoth for nuthin'.

that has got to be the funniest thing I've ever read.
2003-02-06 03:35:26 PM  
christ, mcdonalds i hate you.

keep mammoths dead.
they'll kill us ALLLLLLLLLLLLLL.
2003-02-06 03:35:38 PM  
Awright, that was a good headline; nice.
2003-02-06 03:35:58 PM  
here's an idea:

wasn't the mammoth well-suited to the ice-age lifestyle? and, hasn't it been conjectured that massive warming trends may have been part of the cause of their extinction? what makes people think that they can keep them alive now?

then again, there is the 'cavemen killed them all' theory.
2003-02-06 03:36:30 PM  
Cool, now those elephants can wipe that smug look off their faces!
2003-02-06 03:37:28 PM  
Not such a good idea!!

Not such a good idea!!

On behalf of Ace_Lightning: "As I am the distant relative of the first man ever killed by a mammouth, I think this is a great discovery"
2003-02-06 03:39:18 PM  
How long before Ted Nugent tries to shoot one with his bow and arrow?
2003-02-06 03:40:02 PM  
"Russian scientists" is an oxymoron.
2003-02-06 03:40:18 PM  
then again, there is the 'cavemen killed them all' theory.

well, IIRC, one of my paleo profs claimed that a lot of the creatures living during the last ice age were significantly larger than they are now, and that the ice age [and subsequent warming] more or less acted as a sieve, leaving only the smaller versions behind [think pony:horse sizes]. take wot you will from this...i'm just relaying something that a guy with a PhD in the subject said...
