Halloween Korean Mafia Mammoths!

Somebody ought to have a costume based on this:

Disgraced South Korean stem cell scientist Professor Hwang Woo-suk says he spent private donations for research to pay the Russian mafia for mammoth tissues to clone extinct species.

Or hey, dress up as a Dr. Moreau-esque Half-Hwang Half-Mammoth. The possibilities are endless. Happy Halloween!

A post about Korea puts a smile on my face, Richard! A pleasant diversion at TPD. That photo tops off the story nicely.

That photo reminds me of the entrances to some of the clubs in the Kangnam area of Seoul.

I love it: He wanted to create mammoths but that wouldn’t fly in accounting so he expensed it as “cows.” That’s awesome. On my next research trip, I’m only drinking Veuve Clicquot and expensing it as “Yoohoo.”
