Human Cloning: What’s the big deal?

What if you could clone yourself?

What if you could create a clone? Would you do it and if so what would you make your clone do that you don’t want to? What if your clone ends up better at doing things than you are?


Angela Death.0:  I’m going to go write something in my blog.

Angela Death.1:  Okay, I’ll scrub the toilets.

Angela Death.2:  I’ll wash the dishes.

Angela Death.0:  That’s great!  Have fun.  (Types away at her keyboard about the wonders of cloning technology.)

Angela Death.1:  All done with the toilets.  I’m going to start the laundry now.

Angela Death.0:  Awesome!  I’m going to watch Doctor Who on Netflix.  (Begins watching Doctor Who for the millionth time because it never gets old.)

Angela Death.2:  I’m done with the dishes.  What do you want for dinner?

Angela Death.0:  Steak and potatoes would be great!

Angela Death.2:  I’ll just run to the grocery store and pick up a few things then.

Angela Death.0:  Okay, see you later.

This is the general idea of how life might be if they ever perfected and allowed human cloning.  The life of luxury would be amazing.  Of course, when they start fighting back, it might be a problem.  They might want silly things like lives of their own and some such.

  1. Wouldn’t it be fun to have you, clone 1 and clone 2 sit down to watch Doctor Who together? I think the clones would enjoy that after a long day of chores, maybe keep their minds off fighting for a life of their own.

    Thanks for linking to the challenge

  2. I think you’re right about the fighting – I suspect it would come around to it in the end. It is presumptuous of us to think that we have created a non-thinking being that will or would follow our every desire. Perhaps we too started this way as well. 🙂

    Great post.
