<br><p>Biological researchers have created dead ‘zombie’ cells in the lab which outperform living cells.</p>

<p>Seriously.</p>

<p>A team at Sandia National Laboratories and the University of New Mexico <a href=“http://energy.gov/articles/zombie-replicants-outperform-living” target="_hplink">have innovated a technique whereby mammalian cells are coated with silica to form a near-perfect replicas.</a></p>

<p>The silica replicants can survive greater pressures and temperatures
than flesh, and perform many functions better than the original cells
did when alive.</p>

<p>By painting the cells with silicic acid in a petri dish, the acid
embalms the organic matter in the cell down to the nanometer level.</p>

<p>The silica then acts as a permeable armour, <a href=“http://energy.gov/articles/zombie-replicants-outperform-living” target="_hplink">according to Michael Hess at the American Office of Public Affairs</a>.</p>

<p>That means the cell beneath can be used as a catalyst at far greater temperatures than normal.</p>

&lt;p&gt;Heating the silica to around 400C evaporates the protein in the 

cell, but leaves the silica as a three-dimensional replica of the
"formerly living being", Hess said.</p>

<blockquote>“The difference is that instead of modeling the face, say,
of a famous criminal, the hardened silica-based cells display internal
mineralized structures with intricate features ranging from nano- to
millimeter-length scales.”</blockquote>

<p>The valuable biological material can thus be converted into a
reusable fossil, which could have uses in fuel cells, decontamination
and sensor technology, as well as commercial manufacturing.</p>

<p>Lead researcher Bryan Kaehr said in a statement that the research distinguishes between a mummy cell and a zombie cell. </p>

<p>“Our zombie cells bridge chemistry and biology to create forms that
not only near-perfectly resemble their past selves, but can do future
work,” he said, terrifyingly.</p><p><br></p><p>http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2013/02/14/biologists-create-zombie-_n_2684959.html?ncid=edlinkusaolp00000003<br></p><br></div>

Why for the love of the great and all powerful sky wizard are people doing this?

Don’t know man, you’d think issues like Cancer and AIDS would be a higher priority.<div><br></div><div>“The money’s in the medicine, not the cure.”</div>

This could be the cure <br> :-B

Damn, maybe the white people were right. Maybe the zombie apocalypse IS coming.

This has been THE INVINCIBLE SWORDSMAN saying:

Looks like Obama picked a bad time to ban automatics.

it always starts that way…a new medical breakthrough. then through some weird accident it breaks out into an unexpected place. super cells that become stronger than the original? sounds like potential reanimation shit. <br>

<br>Of course white people are right. It’s white people making this shit. :))
