best way to clone my hard drive to multiple external drives at once

Hello all. Whats the best way (fast, cheap?) to clone my internal hard drive to as many external usb hard drives as possible? (up to 5 at a time, at the same time?). Can this be done in the same amount of time as it takes to clone it to one external hdd? Or would the internal bus choke on the data and take forever? Is there even software that does this? Most of the usual suspects (ghost, acronis, etc) seem designed only to clone 1:1. The default solution seems to be buying a hardware standalone hdd cloner for hundreds of bucks. Thanks for any thoughts/ideas!

How can I best save my DNA?

It seems that we will likely be able to grow new organs or bodies in the future. I would like to save my own DNA while i'm still young and healthy, so that I can have a less degraded blueprint available when I need it. I am having a hard time making sense of the options available to me; does anyone have any knowledge (academic, anecdotal, or personal) that would be useful here? Thanks in advance, dgstieber.

Is it possible to remove the DNA from an unfertilized female egg and replace it with the DNA from a sperm cell carrying the X-chromosome?

Regarding humans, is it possible to remove the DNA from an unfertilized female egg and replace it with the DNA from a sperm cell carrying the X-chromosome (perhaps using a process similar to nuclear transfer)? After doing this, could the egg be fertilized by the sperm of a different male and implanted into a surrogate mother, thus creating a child that is the biological child of two males? [more inside]
