http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/8138963.stm It seems some science blokes up that Newcastle are claiming a first, to whit the production of human sperm in a laboratory. Well I don't know what the scientific ethic regime is like up on Tyneside but I would have thought they should have checked before making such a grandiose claim. Which would have saved them embarrassment in the long term because even though I don't claim to be the "first", I produced some in a physics (not even a biology) lab at my Grammar School in 1979. I cannot take all the credit, I was assisted by a crack support team...or Debbie as I liked to call her. Honestly, next some bloke who drops a new block into his Capri in Ponteland will be claiming to have invented the ICE! Come on Geordies, sort this out. Oooh turned on the switch and now I'm inventor of the light bulb? Get over it!!
