This is not the first time Australian billionaire Clive Palmer has become the subject of rumors related to billionaires and the crazy shit they do. A few months ago, Palmer was said to have been making plans to rebuild a 21st-century version of the Titanic, although nobody knows what became of that project (perhaps they weren’t able to find a big enough Iceberg to crash into.)
Now, Clive Palmer is once again the subject of rumors and speculations, not to mention accusations of having too much money and time on his hands, after it’s been revealed by Business Insider that he’s currently in “serious discussions” with the scientists who managed to clone Dolly the Sheep.
According to Business Insider, instead of doing the sensible thing with cloning technology (e.g. an army of Jessica Biels who are genetically altered to be allergic to clothing), Palmer instead wants to clone a dinosaur and let it roam free in an enclosed Jurassic Park-style area at his Palmer Coolum Resort in Australia.
I don’t know, it doesn’t seem like the kind of project that would end well. I guess Palmer only managed to see the first 10 minutes of Jurassic Park. Maybe he thinks it ended with the dinosaurs graduating from college and getting jobs as call center agents.
