Eh, hard to say really.  The Chinese are commies who recognize that
capitalism is the way to prosperity.  It seems they never really drank
deeply of Marx's koolaid:  Mao was more of a pragmatist than an ideologue.
When a government is surrounded by a billion hungry people, one does
whatever works to stay alive.

If they can transplant an additional head, seems they could duplicate the
man stuff down south.

Hmmmm, hard to say.  If they figure out how to wire up a second one and make
it do what the original does, then you know the yahoos will want a third and
a fourth.  It could give a whole new meaning to the phrase Joe six-pack.  If
you had several of them, it would be so hard to concentrate, trying to
satisfy them all, a full-time job.  We wouldn't get anything else done.  

Hey, perhaps we have stumbled onto the best explanation for the absence of
