Meanwhile, In a Laboratory...

...scientists are trying to spawn Cthulhu:

Now Frankenstein can have a pet jellyfish. A team of scientists has taken the heart cells of a rat, arranged them on a piece of rubbery silicon, added a jolt of electricity, and created a “Franken-jelly.” Just like a real jellyfish, the artificial jelly swims around by pumping water in and out of its bell-shaped body. Researchers hope the advance can someday help engineers design better artificial hearts and other muscular organs.

This is the sort of crap that teenagers in the 50's had to rescue us from. Remember The Blob? The Thing?

Best leave well enough alone.
