That's why you don't clone the brains, just the body
for the organs
the lovely, harvestable genetically matched organs
duh

She doesn't want to have your clones.

I'm a sane and logical person, so I assume my clones would be as well and the game plan would be as follows.

1) Get rich
2) Buy private island
3) Clone the hottest women in the world for our harems.

// only works if you're sane and logical, if you're insane and traitorous like Ba'al, it won't end well because your clones will be equally insane and traitorous.

I'm afraid my clone will try to kill me and usurp my happy life with Alison Brie and our pet ostrich Chris Bosh.

So having a visible clone greatly reduces your chances for gainful employment?

If you have sex with your clone, are you being gay or just masturbating?
 
2013-06-26 02:00:56 AM
If you kill your clone, is it murder or just suicide?

How long before we hear cries for 'clone rights'? Or people who, before dying, 'transfer' their intelligence to a cloned body/brain and demand all the legal rights of their original body, despite the fact that they're just a copy?

/transporter made copies, body was destroyed each time

Disposing of clones involves blood spilled and a great deal of hassle?

Then one day after some mind blowing sex you awake to memories of the thousands of years of your previously cloned selves.

I'm not much of a fan of Beta Colony, from Lois McMaster Bujold's Vorkosigan Saga, but damned if they don't have the clone-rights thing down cold. Clones have full rights, and if you clone yourself, the clone is your child.

We should probably work on getting something like that into law at some point, given how close we seem to be to actually making human cloning work. This is not to say that I think human cloning should be legal, but the law will still need some means of handling people produced by illegal cloning. This seems the most common-sense way of doing that.

But if I'm cloned without my consent will I have to pay child support?

Is it gay or masturbation if you fark your clone?  What about killing them...is that suicide or murder?

Your clone may be identical to you but its not you. Anything external to you can not be part of your self. So, yes, it would be gay and murder.

Store DNA
and memories in some digital way
Wait till humans have off world colonies
Make clone and say farewell
