It Was Bound To Happen

Hat tip to Simply Jews

Men soon to become obsolete!

British researchers have developed human sperm from stem cells.

It is no joke. It is a breakthrough in reproductive science.
Scientists in Newcastle claim to have created human sperm in the laboratory in what they say is a world first.

The researchers believe the work could eventually help men with fertility problems to father a child.

But other experts say they are not convinced that fully developed sperm have been created.

Writing in the journal Stem Cells and Development, the Newcastle team say it will be at least five years before the technique is perfected.

They began with stem cell lines derived from human embryos donated following IVF treatment.

The stem cells had been removed when the embryo was a few days old and were stored in tanks of liquid nitrogen.

The stem cells were brought to body temperature and put in a chemical mixture to encourage them to grow. They were "tagged" with a genetic marker which enabled the scientists to identify and separate so-called "germline" stem cells from which eggs and sperm are developed.

The male, XY stem cells underwent the crucial process of "meiosis" - halving the number of chromosomes. The process over creating and developing the sperm took four to six weeks.

There you are Gentlemen. You have 5 years to make your case before the extreme feminists decide that you are no longer wanted or needed. And they will you know.

So give us 3 good reasons why women should keep you around.

Just 3.

Okay, my three reasons:

1. Without men, there wouldn't be anyone to make fun of on TV sitcoms

2. Without men, every woman would have a woman boss

3. Without men, Oprah Winfrey's show would be just like all the others

Without men science and engineering would grind to a halt--and my beloved would have to learn which end of a torque wrench was which. ;-)
Without men every meeting would degenerate into an exchange of feelings and that would be confused with 'decision making'.
Without men feminists would take over the earth and real women would become slaves. :-)

Uhu... I knew it will make lotsa people happy. Why do I have that sinking feeling in my here stomach that it will all end in tears?
