Now, these eeejits sound like a lovely mixture of wonderful 'nextDoor' neighbors....just like da kind nextDoor to BobLoblah and BillGates.

..for sure nextDoor to you,'dinKing', ya paedophilic sisterFucker.

.....The man who accused Elmo Muppeteer Kevin Clash of having sex with him when he was underage has been identified as a wannabe model with multiple prior arrests — including one for a knifepoint robbery, according to a report.

The accuser, identified by the Smoking Gun web site as Sheldon Stephens, contacted Clash’s bosses at “Sesame Street” to claim he had sex with Clash when he was 16 years old.

Stephens, 24, quickly recanted Tuesday, one day after the allegations became public and Clash, 52, was forced to take a leave of absence from the beloved childhood program.

APElmo puppeteer Kevin Clash.TMZ reported Stephens released the statement after lawyers for him and Clash began discussions on a possible “six-figure” financial settlement.

Clash, a divorced dad who lives on the Upper West Side, e-mailed Stephens in either 2010 or 2011 and apologized for not being able to keep his mind off the much younger man.

“I’m sorry that I keep talking to you about sex with you, it’s driving me insane,” Clash wrote, according to TMZ.

Stephens, of Harrisburg, Pa., lived in Brooklyn from 2007 to 2008 when, according to his résumé obtained by the Smoking Gun, he was an intern at Blowback Productions in Chelsea.

On his Facebook page, Stephens says,“I like to consider myself a rare breed. I’m very spontaneous and random...I’m determined and goal oriented. My destiny is laid on a solid gold brick pathway ... MY FUTURE IS BRIGHT and never will it dim.”

But Stephens’ past includes an arrest for allegedly robbing a former boss of a $250,000 gold necklace at knifepoint in 2009, according to the Smoking Gun.

Stephens allegedly ripped off the jewelry in California from music manager Darian Pollard after being fired from his internship.

Stephens was taken into custody after returning to Pennsylvania, but California authorities never pursued the case. the Smoking Gun reported.

Stephens, whose modeling Web site lists him as single, also has been arrested for passing a bad check, and reckless driving.

His mother, Felicia Stephens, 48, was busted in 2011 for allegedly stabbing her husband with scissors.

Felicia, charged with attempted murder, is free on bail pending trial in Pennsylvania.

Sheldon stood by his mother, telling the Harrisburg Patriot News,“My mom is the nicest person in the world.”

Sheldon did not return requests for comment.

Ps:.....'dinKing' remains a schidt-for-brains.

The fusion of chromosome #2 in one is exciting.
This means that a human kind appeared suddenly with 46 chromosomes.
It also means the chromosomes have been unchanged since #2 first fused.
All this discussion proves man didn’t evolve as claimed. A slow gradual change over 6 million years is not possible if chromosome #2 fused in one event.
This means there had to have been a first. A first man with the 46 chromosomes with #2 fused. That first man was Adam.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-20268044

Most intriguing, eh?

Did they tell him that on a hospital visit? I wonder how long after his accident the birth occurred.

Very weird. I would assume they told him during a visit (I would hope so. Psychic ability gained during a coma is too Stephen King-ish for my liking)

I would assume times seems to be at a standstill for the patient.

Could that fusing be the result of gene splicing, or did someone stand too close to the microwave?
How was the bond made? Not the technique, but the molecular linkage? Anything removed to bond them? Which chemicals bonded at the ends?
It was a copying error. One enzyme cut it up, one didn't move it out of the cell fast enough, another stitched it back together incorrectly.

I don't know the specifics of the molecules involved. It's telomere DNA to non-telomere DNA bonded together. A telomere is just DNA that is repeating in a certain pattern. So it ends up being DNA-DNA bonds, like any other part of the DNA only recognizable as telomere rather than coding or noncoding sequences. That makes it one of G A T C attached to its opposite pair, just like in all DNA.

Sadly, no microwaves at that time, but my chromosomes just fused because of this damned computer.

They just misunderstood that his brain was still capable of receiving input from hearing. It turns out our brains can regrow cells - no one thought that 20 years ago, but stem cells are constantly regenerated in the brain in various locations.
