Another story from the annals of pulp biology, this time from LiveScience.com:

The insertion of human stem cells into monkey brains runs a “real risk” of altering the animals’ abilities in ways that might make them more like us, scientists said today. […]

The scientists admit they don’t even know what really separates humans from our closest relatives […]

All I can say is, find me a cat that looks even remotely like Fairuza Balk, and I’ll inject the stem cells into her myself.

(Unforgettable cinema experience: watching a first-day screening of The Island of Dr Moreau, and the entire audience starts loudly chanting, “Fuck the cat! Fuck the cat!” That’s not something that happens every day.)
