    So, I have a newsfeed that consists of headlines plus maybe a lead line under it. I'm sure most of us do. I'm scanning down the list today and my eyes read the following:

    How to Make Humans from Scratch

    Well, that does tend to draw one up short. I think my eyes skidded a bit. Scroll back up. Look again. Oh.

    How to Make Hummus from Scratch

    But golly gee the writer in me does yearn for the first one!

    Synthetic Men! (like on Burroughs's Barsoom) I was in a band that named ourselves Synthetic Men at one time.

    No, synthetic or otherwise, we are Devo.

    As for "Making Humans from Scratch"... sounds like a sci-fi short story to me, about some alien preteen who gets an Easy-Bake-oven like kit for their spawnday and the hijinks that ensue when the freshly cooked humans start running amok.

    You find two tree trunks and then you and your two brothers wish they were humans of course.
