“Lesbian Necrophiliacs”

You don’t find an article whose title includes the phrase “Lesbian Necrophiliacs” too often. And it’s safe-for-work (and for my more prudish readers) too! 😉

Even without the title, the article is pretty interesting. Cloning has apparently evolved lots of times over the history of Earth, but it’s almost always a death sentence: if every creature is the same, then their immune systems are likewise identical, and the first virus that evolves a way to overcome it has the whole species as a smörgåsbord. I hadn’t heard of these critters until I stumbled on this article, or I’d have wondered about them too.
