Of Quantum Cloning,Woolly Mammoths, and Queen

Woot! The University of Rochester has published an interesting page explaining quantum cloning if you're curious.

But if that's a bit dry for a Monday, perhaps you're curious to read two of last night's newly penned Odes to a Woolly Mammoth:

Old woolly mammoth had great size
though now he's rather thin
some fossils and a hank of hair
are all that's left of him.

i do not want a woolly mammoth
would not want to be one
if Science brings the creature back
excuse me while i flee one.

And now, since Dr. Frankenstein used lightening to 're-animate' his monster, here's a 2 1/2 minute video presentation of Vancouver fireworks during a lightening storm, July 2009, set to Queen's Who Wants to Live Forever?, a perfect sentiment for any extinct woolly mammoth who, though he rocked the Earth some 10,000 years ago, never asked to be brought back to life!
