The Daily Word in Drunk Cats, Unfunny Clowns and Little Hands
By Joshua Lee [ Sun Jun 19 2016 9:33 AM ]
My love of bad taste is legendary in these parts, which is why I've been dying to see Jerry Lewis' super secret holocaust movie, The Day the Clown Cried, wherein a German clown leads Jewish children to the gas chambers. Hiyo! Lewis gave the film to the Library of Congress under condition that it not be shown until 2024. Other than short glimpses here and there (and a live staging of the script by Patton Oswald), not many have seen this poorly planned work, but thanks to internet, 30 full minutes have surfaced. Enjoy!
Using neural stem cells, scientists have shown that an aged hippocampus will accept transplanted brain stem cells. That means age-related brain degeneration can probably be reversed. And the stem cells needed might be feasibly harvested from skin cells. This is fucking nuts!
