One more way to harness the intriguing side of Mother Nature. Who-da thunk?

I like scorpions, but this seems a little strange.:screwy:

Well, I guess if it can kill people, then should beable to kill cancer.:hey:
But seriously, I am all for anything that will help bring the end to cancer or any other disease.:thumbsup:

Totally agree.
Plus, as weird as she is, what's the betting, somewhere in her arsenal, Mother Nature has a cure for everything, we just ain't found it yet. :)

Or had... at the rate at which we're destroying species (http://www.guardian.co.uk/science/story/0,,1665972,00.html) we might have missed the cure. :(

Alas, you're not wrong Ben, just wait till we've melted enough icecap that diseases left unexposed for eons raise their heads, then we're in trouble.

I don't know, maybe that's mother nature's way of curing herself of humans? ;)

There's DEFINITELY something to that! It all come down to balance. WE do our best to mess up her plans, and Mother Nature zings us with famine and pestilence.

As much as I am a defender of animal species and the environment in general, I can't argue that point.

Speaking of weird science, this is one of my favorites of all time. I wish my parents had the foresight to make me a "spider-man".
