that is pretty fuc ing cool.

i mean seriously.
at first, i thought it would just be a stub of flesh, but then i watched the video, and it was fingernails and all!

now that guy who had his dick snipped off when he tried to steal live lobsters by stuffing them in his pants can have hope for his future.

I thought this was fake for a second.

Some guy regenerates a bit of his limb because he put powder on it? Sure sounded fake.

"This is better than what God can do. Has this ever happened before without modern medical science? And don`t quote the bible, it needs to be an independent source like a history book."

troll, troll, troll
*sings the troll song*

go play somewhere else.

on another note, way cool technology
how long do you think it will take for the porn industry to......take advantage of being able to grow things?

things like that amaze and inspire me.

it starts out with an idea, and now the proof is there that this idea DOES work. its only a matter of time before whole limbs are being regrown.

absolutely amazing.

Just limbs?

There are a ton more interesting things this technology will benefit. Think Blindness, deafness, organ failures, nerve damage, even severe arthritis .. you name it!

"That powder is a substance made from pig bladders called extracellular matrix. It is a mix of protein and connective tissue surgeons often use to repair tendons and it holds some of the secrets behind the emerging new science of regenerative medicine."

M`kay...

I love how they avoided telling us what that powder was made out of.

"Some magical miracle powder" they say in the video. Lawl, like they believe in magic and/or God.

Seriously, I think this is nanotechnology but they dont want to tell.

This is better than what God can do. Has this ever happened before without modern medical science? And don`t quote the bible, it needs to be an independent source like a history book.

Awesomeness.

Holy crap! Now I can cut off my own arm, beat someone to death with it, and grow it back good as new!

Oh, and LBlues...its the medical industry. They`ll find a way to make it expensive.

that is insane, theorectically, if you had some sort of liquid form of that powder injected directly into your blood every few years, you could live as long as you want.....

its not science. He simply sneezed while applying the powder and that alerted God who regenerated his fingers
