    Question Who not to clone

    Cloning has been a hot issue lately in the news. The first baby has been cloned (or so they want us to believe). Setting aside the pro's and the cons of cloning, let's assume we were to clone people. Who of all people would you NOT clone. You can select more than one option if you find it to hard to choose.

    I know I can't add all people to the list, but if you really think one should be added, just ask (read note below).

    Oh, I left Xeon out of the list on purpose, since he would probably win the poll unanymous, and be proud of it too. No, I'm not adding him, so don't bother asking.

    Are the teletubbies clonable? Anyway, I think this thread is a bit inane and rude for a conversation. Why not ask "is it unethical to clone?" Or "what are your thoughts on cloning?"

    I agree that this thread is a bit insane, but I don't think it is rude. This is just for fun. Check the internet and you will find a zillion games where the victim is a celebrety (dancing bush, kill osama, yasser vs ariel 3d boxing, shoot the tubbies, save the twintowers). I think those are actually going much further than this "inocent" poll, knowing that the reason these games were written we probably more out of amusement rather than actually atacking a person.

    About starting a thread asking if cloning is unethical. This wouldn't be a bad idea, and I can tell you I have toyed with the idea of posting that one instead of this one, but because I occasionally prefer a little insanity over a very heavy discussion (since that is what it would turn out to be eventually), I opted for this one.

    Michael Jackson. It's useless to clone him. He will just change his image.

    I can't believe there are people who did not vote for all of these freaking idiots. They're all a walking disaster. Anyway, you should have added an option 'Me'. I'm also a terrible disaster. No seriously, a lot of people also do not want themselves cloned.

    What surprises me most is that Michael Jackson is currently no. 1 with 5 votes. Maybe because people think he is the one in the list most likely to try doing it?

    Finally I voted for the people I found to be the more harmful at the moment (basically, the political leaders).

    I just realised after clicking the button vote that I could have omitted Bush. Not that he is not as harmful as the others, it's just that he has been very lucky because of his family to become president, but he is basically to dumb to be harmful in most other situations.

    The other are more dangerous, being at the same time harmful and smart.

    I didn't vote for M. Jackson because it would be funny to see him black again

    Hm.. If someone should clone himself, is he will get
    such human individ like himself or clone will be only physical copy of him. If second, it is not so terrible.
    If fisrt, I voted for Hitler, like for one of the most terrible human in the history. Nevertheless I agree with Simon, that some part of people above are dictators, idiots and e.t.

    Ozzy Osbourne was a great heavy singer, now... it is better don't say anything
    N'Sync is a rap singer (I think), but he has quite polemic songs.

    N'Sync is a boysband of five boys making annoying music for young teenage gurls. One of them wants to be shot into space out of free will. Hopefully this implies trying to blast the others too in space would not prove too hard.
