Speaking of male pregnancy, this has to be the weirdest thing I've seen today: a parasitic fetus, this man's twin, lived inside him for 36 years: http://abcnews.go.com/Primetime/Story?id=2346476&page=1. If you're squeamish I don't suggest reading the article, but the gist is that there are 90 recorded cases of this sort of thing, this fetus-in-fetus business, where one twin develops, deformed, inside of the other one and lives parasitically, sustaining itself through an umbilical cord-like thing. This guy didn't realize that was the problem for over 30 years.
I'm glad my twin and I are two separate individuals. Our relationship is not parasitic at all.

I especially like Clarke's First Law:
|When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.|
By the way, the stock seems to have turned out well. I haven't decided what to use it for yet.
