What creative use of powdered pig bladder! I wonder what prompted them to say "hey, let's try putting some pig bladder on stuff and see if it grows!"

It's mind boggling that the new growth is so selective that even his fingerprint regenerated.

And if the US military is interested..... ehm, never mind.
