|Just when you think you've seen anything, a DNA Immortality Kit at ThinkGeek proves you wrong yet again. This kit will allow you to take a sample of your DNA and store it in a safe place, to be used when science and technology allow for mass cloning. I bet the guy who invented the pet rock came out with this idea.. and I'm kicking myself for not having thought of it!
If you don't think it's worthwhile to preserve your DNA for yourself - think about future generations! Someday every kid on the block will have one of those little hand-held scanners like Doctor "Bones" McCoy on Star Trek. And they'll be able to get a glimpse of what it was like to be you without all the personal hang-ups and emotional baggage you carry now. So, in effect, you are giving the gift of information to your future progeny by just forking up some saliva.
