Dear Biotech Hobbyist,

I need your help. I have an aging poodle (13 years) whose health is failing, but spirit is bright. I am hoping that you people involved in the biotech world can take my dog on as some form of life extension project. I am not in a position to pay for this kind of service, however I am willing to offer you complete biotechnological license over my dog, whose name is Taco. Taco is a slightly portly, affectionate, shaggy black poodle. He does not bark, he loves to sleep under the covers and will do tricks for snacks. Taco's health issues include, a bad back, deafness and halitosis. Considering his advanced age, time is of the essence. Radical surgery, may be the only option. Perhaps Biotech Hobbyist could investigate the possiblity of grafting Taco onto a host/life sustaining organism? Do you think Orlan could incorporate Taco into her surgery schedule? As mentioned, the dog is extremely sweet, and
he could make a lovely addition/companion to Orlan's physical configuration.

Can you suggest an alternate life extension option?
I anxiously await your response,

susan@banff.org (Susan Kennard)

Dear Biotech Hobbyist

I read with interest that one of your first projects was to "cultivate human skin from foreskin samples" Sadly my foreskin was cut from my body as a baby and now that I am exploring my sexuality in different ways....attempting to leave behind the phallo-logo-centric conditioning for a more fluid and plural sexuality, I feel the moist flaps and folds and nooks and crannies of a foreskin could provide me with the layered sexual explorative experiences that have been denied me by the medical establishment. My question: Is there a home kit for cultivating and grafting a foreskin for those of us who lack this most neccessary (both physically and psychologically) part of the male physiology?

Yours hopefully.
