    Link: Man Re-Grows His Severed Fingertip - Three years ago, Lee Spievack sliced off the tip of his finger with a R/C airplane. With science, he grew it back.

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

    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.....

    But even without this powder the end of your finger will grow back. Iv seen it. My uncle sliced off the tips of all his fingers with a circular saw and they grew back, no sh*t!

    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.

    misstaken is the powder just speeds up the process.

    anyways, that is insanely cool, as long as scientists think they can do what God can do

    "anyways, that is insanely cool, as long as scientists think they can do what God can do"

    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.

    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.

    "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...

    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.

    troll, troll, troll

    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?

    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.

    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.
