Student invents miracle wound-closing gel

A New York University student has invented a medical gel that could make conventional bandages obselete.

20-year-old Joe Landolina maintains that his remarkable Veti-Gel is capable of closing even the most heavily bleeding wounds almost instantly and even works with internal bleeding during surgical procedures. If the gel turns out to be as effective as he claims then it could revolutionize medicine. Landolina is studying for a BSc in biomolecular and chemical engineering while at the same time pursuing a masterís in biomedical engineering.

"Thereís really no way to quickly stop bleeding except to hold lots of gauze on a wound," he said. "I thought if you could pour this gel into a wound, it would solidify and stop the bleeding."

"The precocious entrepreneur first honed his scientific chops working at his grandparentsí winery, Baldwin Vineyards, in upstate Pine Bush."

Oh ****, someone invented something practical! Give this man some armed protection quick! It'll never pass through the FDA, they need people to be hurt/sick.

Ironic how the caption has soldiers. Why does everything have to be associated with war? I am sure the army and navy would be the first to rush to use it if they can grab their greedy little hands on the product.

I am sure the army and navy would be the first to rush to use it if they can grab their greedy little hands on the product. I should hope so. I can't imagine a more appropriate venue for this type of product than at war. It could help save the lives of our military personnel. That doesn't seem greedy to me. Greedy would be simply putting it in the market and charging an exaggerated amount so that people who need it, like the military at war, won't be able to use it.

What are the EMO? Elmo? ELO? Elohim? Xylophone? Emo (pron.: /?i?mo?/) is a style of rock music characterized by melodic musicianship and expressive, often confessional lyrics. It originated in the mid-1980s hardcore punk movement of Washington, D.C., where it was known as "emotional hardcore" or "emocore" and pioneered by bands such as Rites of Spring and Embrace. As the style was echoed by contemporary American punk rock bands, its sound and meaning shifted and changed, blending with pop punk and indie rock and encapsulated in the early 1990s by groups such as Jawbreaker and Sunny Day Real Es...
