Beerguy: FTA:"Yevgeny ran home to tell his parents, who in turned alerted the local paleontologists." So, the parents have the local Paleontologists on speed dial?
DingleberryMoose: FTFA: Because the remains were buried in the permafrost, the scienctists had to use traditional tools such as axes and picks, plus a specially designed device that allowed them to thaw ice layers with the help of steam. And even with the help of these tools, it still took them a week to get the entire thing out of the ground.It appears to have been a mammoth undertaking.
HortusMatris: syzygy whizz: HortusMatris: Ooo! Clone me a pet mammoth! I'll name him Snuffleupagus and build a cart that he can pull me around town in.Will you still love him and pet him and squeeze him?Even though he is named 'Snuffleupagus' and not 'George'?Oh, I would! Even though no one would believe that I had a real mammoth as a pet, they would tell me he was just an imaginary friend. I'd show them, though. One day they would all see him, too, and then we could all sing songs and play games together!

DeadMouseTails: Wooly mammoths are one of my favorite extinct animals. I would love it if this tours, like Sue did so many years ago. She was beautiful.
omgbears: Beerguy: So, the parents have the local Paleontologists on speed dial?Was curious about this too, do you just go look in the yellow pages under "Paleontologists"? Who even has a phone book these days?
zarberg: I'll tell you the problem with the scientific power that you're using here, it didn't require any discipline to attain it. You read what others had done and you took the next step. You didn't earn the knowledge for yourselves, so you don't take any responsibility for it. You stood on the shoulders of geniuses to accomplish something as fast as you could, and before you even knew what you had, you patented it, and packaged it, and slapped it on a plastic lunchbox/must go faster
The Jami Turman Fan Club: Seems like we have the DNA for it. I would think they could at least make a mammoth-elephant hybrid./More interested in saber-toothed tigers.//And Awks
