Protip: Michael Crichton has been dead for four years.

So? TuPac has been dead for 16.

If you cloned him, he'd just be another human. Though, I imagine he'd be slightly smarter than your average Tea Partier. ;P

If only there was someone to write a story warning us of the perils of cloning long dead creatures.

I guess the Frozen Mammoths that they find (some are 40,000 years old) -don't have red blood cells.

I suspect the left off the adjective "human". I'm assuming they've already run this guy's DNA right? After watching a Nat Geo Special on Humans, neandertals and Denisovians, I'd really love to see a breakdown of his DNA and what "other human" genes he might be carrying as cold places like the Alps were likely the last real strongholds of the Neandertals

I'd like to complain that my headline was better, but it was more like 'equally bad' So...whatever.

Also, my comment on the article from where I took it from:
Life...finds a way. They were so busy wondering if they could discover something amazing and possibly incredibly informative about the progress of the human genome, they didn't stop to think if they should. Something, something, stem cells, something Obama, something GM Frankenfood, Wharrgarrbl.

His books were so formulaic that they're basically mad libs. Just take Jurassic Park, change the dinosaurs to ice men and change the name of the evil industrialist slightly and you'll end up with what Crichton would have written.

You can't get DNA from red blood cells. They don't have a nucleus.
 
2012-05-02 01:48:24 PM
Or? Why not both?

Imagine, Goldblum and Shore together at last. Throw in Carrot-Top and you'd have a trifecta of greatness!
 
2012-05-02 01:48:55 PM
Why can't it be both Criton-esque and have Paulie Shore? "Like, life will find a way Buddddy. Like this dino here was all wheezing this dino's juice and the one dino said 'Hey budddy, quit wheezing the juice and made himself change his gender like a frog so the could weasel at night and have chill dino-babies, buddy!'

Right, because A Case of Need, The Great Train Robbery, Rising Sun, Disclosure, and The Terminal Man were all EXACTLY the same as Jurassic Park.

Actually, Michael Crichton faked his death so he could pursue his first love: writing Tween vampire novels.

Yes, he was killed by a time-traveling global-warming hoaxer to keep the TRUTH!!!!!! from getting out.

He was probably running from an enraged Giant and two Mammoths when it happened.

Then the Blood Dragon showed up....

True, but they have bone, skin, hair etc from this guy too and at least in modern forensics, andwhere you find red blood cells you are likely to find a few white blood cells that do have nuclei

His Y-DNA was tested and he was found to belongs to the G2a2b Haplogroup. I was tested as being in the G2a3b1a Haplogroup, so somewhere down the line he is my cousin.
