countrymen lend me our sperm

in 10 years the test tube will resemble a womb and the egg can stay there not just till 4 days but maybe 9 month.
corporate babies ,soldiers,slaves.....................
i recall a scifi movie where israelis were buying german sperm so as to fertilize israeli girls so the future jews would be tall strong..buying eggs in holland to fertilize invitro with german sperm then implanted in israeli girls to later have BIG babies... buying your enemies sperm and eggs?
why not a moosad operation to secretly use jew sperm in german sperm banks so as to conquer genetically.. german girls THINK its gustavs sperm but its avivs sperm . babies would growup german but would be jewish

Circumspection

So let's say a kid is created in a test tube. The egg is from a Jewish woman, and the sperm from a Christian man. The kid then gets adopted by a Muslim couple. But then the mother finds out that she is really a Hindu. So she raises the kid Hindu, while the father brings him to the mosque each Friday and tells him he ia a Muslim. Then one day the kid finds some old papers in his father's drawer and finds out that he's Jewish...but he never had a circumcision, so he converts to Catholicism which was his bioligical father's religion anyway. But then he meets a Protestant who tells him that the Pope is the devil and he then converts to Pentacostal. But he becomes rich and moves to Hollywood and joins the Dianetics religion. Next thing you know he's jumping on couches and telling people not to take anti-depressents. Then all these people start to kill themselves, one of whom is the messiah. And then the human race can never be saved! All because of creating babies in test tubes!

a "rift" in the system.....

Von Cello wrote, on the hundreds of kids born from test tubes:

"They don't know if they are a Jew or gentile...."

Excuse me for being blunt, but wouldn't a circumcision be a dead give-away? Of course, what if the test-tube child never had a circumcision? I'm Catholic of course, but I was circumcized...don't know why, though. It probably has something to do with our church's own connections to Abraham.....he was quite the patriarch.

But there is only so much science can do....I say that most of the natural cycle of life relies on the works of God to ensure that everything runs smoothly.

Shudder to think...

When we were kids one of the ways you could insult another kid was to say, "You weren't born, you were hatched". And then the other kid could hit you back with, "Oh yeah, well you weren't even hatched. You were created in a test tube!" Yet now, thousands, or maybe millions of kids are being created in test tubes. And a lot of these kids don't know who their biological mothers or fathers are. They don't know their family histories, or their backgrounds. They don't know if they are a Jew or gentile. They don't know who their descendents were and who they look like or take after. They are like lost souls born into a world without any blood links.

Is this what we call "progress"?

" ....if a sperm is wasted........".

That last posting really got the Monty Python song "Every Sperm is Sacred" chanting in my head......
Thanks alot fred.....and murry!

I know very little about sperm, only that they join with the egg to form a new life, and that they're there....they're just there swimming happily in your nether regions.
Now I've heard of germ warfare, but just imagine if "sperm warfare" is in the works.....I shudder to think of such consequences.

So I remmember we were discussing using music as a weapon a while back on this guestbook, so I thought you'd get a kick out of this particular YouTube, Aaron.
I would assume you can guess the title of the famous Scottish march this guy is playing.

To boldly go...

Actually, I have a lot of questions concerning the concept of egg and sperm doning. Not too long ago, the idea of a female egg and male sperm conecting and forming a baby was thought of as an intimate act that should only be done between two people who love each other and are ready to make a life long committment to raising the child that is produced. Whether or not you want to call it "holy", it was something to be taken very seriously and viewed as the most important decision of one's life.

Now people donate their eggs and sperm. They have no idea with whom it will be combined. it may be done in a test tube without any love at all. And they have no idea about who will be responsible to raise the child. Is this moral? Is it sick? Does it help or hurt society?

It sure brings up a lot of questions, yet people are just doing it anyway.

Scooby dooby do, where are you?

I agree, I never found Scooby to be the least bit funny or interesting. I liked the Flintstones and the Jetsons too. But the best cartoons I think were Popeye, especially the early ones, and Rocky and Bullwinkle. I say this because both had a lot of social and political commentary that was totally over the heads of the kids.

I never knew that the Jetsons were Jewish, but my wife made a very good case for it. First of all the kid wears a beanie, that could be looked at as a yarmulke. The couples names were George and Judy, both common Jewish names. Judy, of course, is short for Judith which is Yehudis in Hebrew which means Judah, the name of one of the 12 tribes. And they had sterotypical habits. Judy loved to shop, and George was overworked and kind of taken advantage of by his wife and kids. But beyond that, she says there were a lot of Jewish jokes in the show. Unfortunately, I haven't watched it in years and when I was a kid I didn't notice any of this, but then again, I was more into music and politics...or when I was even younger into space travel and dinosaurs.

Can I make you a tuna "melt"?

"12 percent of american men dont realizethey are raising another mans baby..based on dna testing".

I wouldn't be surprised if this is true.

I heard somewhere that everybody on the planet is related to everybody else at a tiny point at the genetic level...no matter your color or race.
What I mean is, my ancestry is Irish and English, and also a bit French, Spanish, Scandinavian, there's probably some Native American in there too since they were on this continent first. What a big metling pot America is! Since I mentioned Irish, Enlgish and French in the list, I am probably distantly related to the ancient Celtic tribes who migrated to Western Europe from Aisia Minor and parts of Africa....and the ancient peoples of Siberia of course crossed that land bridge from Russia to Alaska, so I think my statement that we're all a bit related has some historical/biological clout.
Even if we're not all related, we all share this planet together and I think we've gotta find someway to live with each other in harmony.

(I probably sound like a hippy...don't I? I like to say I'm a hippy without the pot. In High Scool I was especially enamored with the Beatles, and other Sixties Rock. I was flashing my friends peace signs all over the place).

Scooby-Snack for your thoughts?

This is from the news story about Scooby Do:
"When he was assembling ideas for the character, Takamoto talked to a dog breeder on the Warner Brothers lot and learnt all about the straight back, straight legs, small chin and other features of a great Dane. He then proceeded to ignore every one of these. "I decided to go the opposite and gave him a hump back, bowed legs, big chin and such," he said. "Even his colour is wrong."

Yep, there's no doubt in my mind this guy was stoned for most of the time. Lets lok at another character from the show: Shaggy. Tall, skinny, an un-kempt beard, and high-pitched goofy voice. Yep, he's stoned. There is a Jamaican Dancehall singer whose stage name is Shaggy....gotta be a pot connection here somehow.

It's just my opinion, but the cartoon on a whole wasn't that funny. Maybe it's just a generational thing. Those brought up in the late Sixties- Early Seventies probably found it funnier at the time then I do watching re-runs of it. Then again, I guess if you're a stoned, Twenty-First Cenutry, twenty-something watching it in your dorm's common area with an ample supply of pizza and beer, Scooby Do might have that extra-special effect on you.
I was a Jetsons and Flinstones man myself.

But cartoons these days have gotten so wierd I don't know what message or lesson their trying to send to the kids. I'll have to get back to you with some examples....gonna go watch some TV.

Scooby dooby doo

I know what you're saying about wanting to avoid courts and jails by not doing a crime. But in my case, my "crime" was owning apartments and trying to follow the "American Dream" of being an entrepeneur. What they didn't tell me was that there were these sharks out there called "lawyers" who could stick a gun to your head called "law suits", and then demand virtually any amount of money to call off the dogs. That is a big flaw in the system. And that is legal!

Also, you never know if you may commit a crime. For instance, someone one day may say, "Hey, could you watch my bags for a minute?" And then he walks away and a cop comes up to you and says, "I need to search those bags". And next thing you know you're riding to the station busted for possession of drugs.

The law is a very crazy thing. In some ways it is helpful, but it is also hurtful. It is like a fire that can cook your food or burn your house down.

Like, look at Scooby Do. Do you realize that that cartoon was all about drugs? I never watched it for more than a minute, but that's what people tell me. Even the name Scooby sounds like Dooby, which was slang for a marijuana cigarette. So, chances are the creator of this series had done drugs...as, by the way, so have several of our presidents and congressmen. So, they have all done illegal things and could have been thrown in jail. But, of course, usually only poor black folk end up in jail over possession of drugs. So it is not so simple.

If ya can't do the time, (and who would want to?) Don't do the crime!

I'll confess I know nothing about the American legal system....heck, even the Dewey Decimal System confuses me!
The way I see it, I'm just a citizen of this fine country and I'm minding my own business. Why would I WANT to commit a crime if they're going to commit me to the prisons, which by the way, our government don't take very good care of. What's worth risking getting sent to a terrible place for a minute of mischeivous fun? I say better to keep fences and ally-ways free of grafitti, and to keep super-market items on the shelves - not in your pockets where they DON'T belong.
I guess I've always been kind of a goody-two shoes kid.....though I did snap a photo of a famous painting in the Metropolitan Museum of Art once. It was a High School choir trip. The painting? My favorite: Monet's "Sunset in Venice" (My second favorite? Picasso's "Guernica").
A guard caught me, but reprimanded me and asked I not to do such a thing ever again. Once I moved in to college I comemorated the dirty deed by buying a replica of the Monet from a campus poster sale. God, I love America!

Shat-ner

Well, if Shatner is on it, how bad can it be?

(Don't answer that!)

No, but it does sound like it might be good because of the extra legal parts.

Lawyers, like any other group of people, have their good and bad apples. Some lawyers do a lot of good, but anyone who gets involved in business eventually will run into a lawyer who is nothing more than a legalized thug. I ran into just such a lawyer when I owned apartments. To make a long story short, he represented a Co-op board that decided to threaten to sue me for something illegitimate. The board eventually agreed to settle it with me, but the lawyer wanted me to pay him $10,000 for his "time"! We had never even got to court! My lawyer had only charged me a few hundred dollars at that point! So this sick bastard was basically acting like a Mafia extortionist. "Pay me thousands of dollars to walk away or the law suit goes forward, and you will end up loosing the money one way or another!"

The really sick part is that there was nothing I could do. Apparently, when you are a lawyer it is LEGAL to screw people like this! Why? Because the people who write the laws are lawyers too! The system is totally unfair and out of controll. And it is due to this kind of legalized criminal activity that people start to hate lawyers. I don't hate all lawyers, but the ones who abuse the system like this should rot in hell!

Ahhh...now I feel better.

Where were you on the night Shatner was on?

Von Cello wrote:
"I never watch any shows that have anything to do with cops or lawyers..."

I will give this a rebuttal by putting in a good word for the ABC comedy/drama (melodrama?) Boston Legal, starring James Spader, Candace Bergen, and of course, William Shatner.
It's a court-room drama, but it's so much more. great writing, great acting, and I love the way they end every episode....Spader and Shatner loungingon the Firm's balcony with fine scotch and cigars, trading stories from the day and insights on life's most puzzling questions. aside from comedy, the cases bring up important issues which can be related to real life, 21st Century American society....it's somewhat educational and thought-provoking.

True, it's only a TV show, but Boston Legal has given me a better impression of real-life lawers, a group of people almost as hated as terrorists and tax collectors, One of my roomates in college wanted to be a lawyer...I don't know if he's acheived that yet but he's a pretty decent guy.

On a different note, I only watch Fox's COPS for the theme song.
