Do you have sex with females?  Only people who are sexually attracted to females are allowed to have an opinion.  You are, however, permitted to say 'he' is smoking hot but only if you're willing to put his disembodied cock in your mouth.

I'm attracted to people who are female-gendered. Genitalia doesn't matter, it's the state of mind that matters to me.

I had the opportunity to have sex with a female-to-male transsexual once, but the idea, and the person, repulsed me. Also sex with male-gendered people born as men. (which sounds more complicated than it is)

One of the exceptions to this is David Bowie. Damn was he hot in drag.

From Slashdot -- Bioreactors Engineer Tissue To Mend Heart Damage --

Quote
Heart attacks usually cause irreversible damage to heart muscle and, because cells lost from the heart do not grow back naturally, leave the organ in a weakened and vulnerable state that may cause another serious condition -- called heart failure -- if the victim survives.  Now a team of scientists led by Tal Dvir from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in Beer-Sheva has developed a tissue-engineering technique, using the body as a "bioreactor", to create a "patch" made from heart muscle that can be used to fix scarring left over from a heart attack. 

First, a biodegradable "scaffold" is seeded with immature cells taken from the hearts of newborn rats.  For 48 hours, the scaffold is exposed to a cocktail of growth-promoting chemicals in the laboratory and is then transplanted into a rat's abdomen where it develops a network of blood vessels and muscle fibers.  After seven days the patch is removed and grafted onto the animal's heart.  A month later the patch has completely integrated itself into the heart, synchronizing its "beat" with that of the surrounding tissue.  "Using the body as a bioreactor to engineer cardiac tissue with stable and functional blood vessel networks represents a significant improvement in cardiac patch performance over ex vivo (outside the body) methods currently used for patch production", write the authors.  The technique is also being developed for livers and bladders.

http://www.nowpublic.com/health/israeli-world-first-surgeons-weld-wounds-shut-surgical-laser

This is a first in the world. An opportunity to seal incisions using a new method that discourages infection by its application and procedure.

Surgeons of the future may have to learn welding rather than sewing, now that a team of applied physicists at Tel Aviv University have developed an efficient and safe way to close incisions in the skin that they say could also be used on cuts inside the body.

I'm not doubting the accuracy of this list (the methods through which this R&D capital was attracted is a different matter), but if you're going to paste something - why not reference the source?  Was it perchance a PDF file with two Web-sites in the header which no longer exist?  :lol:

Not exactly invented in Israel, but some innovations with the most popular varieties did take place there.

No, I got it from a different website a while back and saved it to my hard drive as a .txt file.  Sorry the link you gave sent me to a website blocked in my custom DNS defense plan.  My DNS company allows me to block sites with domain names known to perpetuate malware.

kosher coca-cola

What does this require?

I take it that it is made with sugar rather than corn syrup...

You can get kosher Coca-Cola in the U.S. around Passover.  Get the bottles with the yellow caps, apparently:

Coke in America is kosher generally.

For Ashganazim, however, they import Mexican Coke for passover because its made out of sugar instead of corn syrup.
