They told him it was impossible;
you can’t genetically engineer a
super human clone. Those words
only drove him. Without funding
he’d have to go it alone.
To pay for research, he cooked
up batches of crystal meth.
After two dozen failures, he finally
got it right. Then he discovered
something was terribly wrong. He
had created a creature with a blood
lust. The monster ate three of the
professor’s graduate students.
Fearing that he would be next, he
lured the monster into a trap. When
the beast tried to catch him, the
professor threw a switch. A million
volts arced out and fried the monster.
If you are interested in the details,
you can find the professor’s article
in the journal “Nature.”
