A German museum has put on display a copy of Vincent van Gogh's ear that was grown using some of the Dutch artist's genetic material.

The 19-century painter is said to have cut off his own left ear during a psychotic episode in 1888.

Well I must say the technology is amazing, but would this not be better used on someone who could see and feel the benefits today, ie: someone living?

Slightly off topic, this reminds me, anyone hear about the guy who wanted to write a book about Van Gogh being Jack the ripper? or did he finally realize he had made a right old pigs ear of that!

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

I remember him free,after his thread here got closed never hear another thing about him lol

"If it is not advantageous,do not move.If objectives can not be attained,do not employ the army.Unless endangered do not engage in warfare.The ruler cannot mobilize the army out of personal anger.The general can not engage in battle because of personal frustration.When it is advantageous,move;when not advantageous,stop.Anger can revert to happiness,annoyance can revert to joy,but a vanquished state cannot be revived,the dead cannot be brought back to life."

You can talk to the ear. The input sound is processed by a computer using software that converts it to simulate nerve impulses
in real time. The speaker remains in soliloquy. The crackling sound that is produced is used to outline absence instead of presence.
