Now if us humans could get into these 'nondamaging' XRay, neutron, and MRI vivisections instead of the terminal scalpel-driven ones as the default on a regular basis! Wanna see the inside of a dog? Put him in the CAT scanner and he's still your best friend after!

"Wow! and some people still don't believe that God exsits!"

I don't believe God exists. If God existed the human female clitoris would have been "discovered" in America before 1998. I find it extremely odd that our male dominated society is more obsessed with their own "accomplishments" and the inner workings of an insect than with their own women.
