Here's the comment thread from a post in ubergeeks
[brainache's OP quotes from The Register's article about the rat brain that flies fighter jets.]
Comment from jrnlmnky: This is even cooler than the monkeys controlling robotic arms with their brains!
Comment from genepool23: Nothing is cooler than telepathic robot monkey arms.
Comment from brainache: THEY GREW A BRAIN and it can FLY PLANES. This is pretty frelling cool.
Comment from genepool23: Beyond cool, but missing the all-important monkey factor.
You can help settle the argument here.
