Young Athenians most partial to being cloned

Unlike most of their elders, a sizable number of young Athenians would like the world to be enriched with exact, living copies of themselves or their dear ones, according to a survey published on Saturday. A poll conducted in the greater Athens area by VPRC pollsters on behalf of Imerisia daily found that 90.8 percent of the overall Athens population had no desire to be cloned, were the option legal. But 15.2 percent of respondents aged 18-24 said they would be interested in being cloned, or having their loved ones cloned. The least inclined to be cloned were the 55- to 64-year-olds, not a single one of whom expressed such a desire.
