Chomp!

A scientific study shows that those vampire myths just might have some basis in fact. That a creature just might live longer...and stay younger...with doses of young blood.

But...not exactly, so don't reach over and take a chunk out of your cubicle-mate's neck or anything. There are still issues around blood-type compatibility and stuff to consider. Clones seem to be the answer.

Clones...I recall that I read that that cloning company has "delivered" a second cloned pet to some wealthy but not too bright individual. Somewhere else, recently, I read that some company has won permission to go back to working on human cloning technique.

There's value in that research, but that doesn't stop me from being reminded of a SF story I read many years ago, one wherein the wealthy classes were in the habit of keeping personal clones on-hand to harvest for spare parts whenever they developed a problem or needed to replace some worn-out organ.

I'm just saying.
