Because with the help of nearly-modern medicine, we'll all be the regenerating trolls we've always wanted to be. (http://www.theaustralian.news.com.au/common/story_page/0,5744,16417002%255E30417,00.html)

Too bad the medical industry will nip this in the bud before it ever comes to fruition...

Holy crap! This is amazing!

If anyone thinks this is wrong ethnically, they are really thick.
(Except for the people who post here and disagree, especially mods : P)

Cause man, loose an eye? Regrow, loose a finger? Regrow. Need a skin graft? Regrow!
Man, this could be totally awesome.

not just your arm...do you know what happened to Dr. Connors on spiderman? (Connors was experimenting with lizard regrowth, and turned himself into a lizard-man)

OOH NO3Z, T3h M0U53M3N R C0M!NG!!!1!!11!!!

Regenerating sounds cool, but will it work? Our organs are larger and more complex than mouse organs.

Edit: Too bad about brain not regrowing. I know a few people who could use that. :p

What? :p I think that's Beast you're talking about, and he's from X-men. And now that I checked Wikipedia...you're right. :p

That's what they're wondering, too. I hope you don't end up getting a leg where an arm should be...

Regrowing, not Enhancing. :p

Cool, one thing i do wonder though is if these genes are in all of us anyway, why arn't they always "turned on"? there must be a reason for it. I'm sure there is a downside to it someware.

You turn into a Unisol and have to sit in a bathtub of ice everynight for a few hours. Otherwise you die!!! You don't have the enhancements, though.


Seriously, this is pretty cool.
