Turns out a bunch of research groups tried to clone monkeys and couldn't make it work. I know one scientist at Wake Forest who spent close to a decade on it. There's something about primates that make the cloning technique used for Dolly untenable. I think that Oregon Health Sciences University also tried for years.

Interesting thing...this scientist primarily studied alcohol addiction and wanted cloned monkeys to eliminate a bunch of variables. The idea was that a whole bunch of life sciences would like to use cloned monkeys for more control in their experiments.

Please please please never go to this spot in winter or if surf on the north shore is high.

Many people have died here and many others have been rescued by responders who are risking themselves to save idiots.
