Baby born with 2 front teeth
Alyssa Bailey was born with two perfectly-formed bottom teeth in December

*Be honest. You’re probably thinking the same thing I am: “Are you sure that’s a newborn?” 

I haven’t even gotten to the teeth yet.

But anyway…The cutie was born with 2 bottom teeth in her mouth, and as you can imagine, she was the talk of the delivery room that day.

Baby Alyssa made her debut into the world just three days after Christmas and brought an extra gift along for her parents: two perfectly-formed bottom front teeth.

Her mother, Jaklina Bailey, said the doctors and nurses at the hospital in Branson, Missouri were stunned when they saw the infants’ set of chompers. Continue reading

Ladies and Gents, Can We Talk? How’d You Feel About a Lab Grown Penis…No, Seriously

lab, private parts

*You can trust that I am not creative enough to make this stuff up. But I kid you not in the revelation that researchers at the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine have announced the substantial progress they are making towards growing human penises in a laboratory.

This is serious folks. But not entirely new.

Back in 2009, the team at Wake Forest succeeded in growing a “functional engineered solid organ” for a rabbit. And being human, of course they followed that up with the successful development of human erectile tissue. With that success, little else would stop them from what they felt was the only step left: grow such tissue into a full-scale penis and sew it onto a real dude with a dysfunctional er…you know.

Technically speaking, any way you angel it, its a LAB GROWN PENIS!

One woman whose husband was overly excited about the possibility had this response:

“Do you mean to tell me they have the technology to grow regenerative organs and the first thing they do is grow a d*ck?”

Uh, yeah, I concur with er, …what she said. Continue reading

Women: Holla If You Feel Pain of Woman Who Delivered 15-lb Baby in Washington

Welcome Francisco Leon Ortiz, Jr.
Welcome Francisco Leon Ortiz!

*Ouch.

That is most likely the first thought that comes to the mind of any woman who has given birth and is reading this. We know the labor in itself is intense, not to mention the work it takes to push even an average-sized baby out. So imagine this mother who shocked the medical officials in the Birth Center at Grays Harbor Community Hospital in Washington, when she pushed out a baby that weighs 15 lbs.

Needless to say, they couldn’t believe their eyes.

On average, newborns weigh about 7-1/2 pounds at birth. And although Yessica Ortiz Delgado had given birth to two children who were larger than average, even she was surprised that her newest bundle of joy came in at this enormous weight, according to The Inquisitr. 

“We deliver babies of all sizes, but it is not every day that we deliver and care for a baby as large as Francisco,” says Barbara Connet, who is the director at a Birth Center that delivers more than 500 babies a year. Continue reading

Medical Incredible: What’s Up Your Nose…No Seriously! (Watch)

Myiasis

*I know. That’s a strange question to ask in the headline of a story, but the video is going to be much worse – especially if you’re squeamish.

Yep. That was your warning.

But seriously, did you know that there are people living with a condition called Myiasis? It’s a parasitic infection of fly larva, and you know what a fly is before it becomes a fly right? Well THAT could very well be making a home up your nasal passage.

Still can’t grasp what the heck I’m talking about?

OK, let me say it straight out then. There is a video where a doctor in India did an endoscopic procedure on a patient that shows him removing LIVE MAGGOTS from the man’s nose.

As the singer Lourdes would say, “So there.”

Now there may be 2.

A boy born to a family in India has been named, “God Boy” because he was born with  4 arms and 4 legs. But the birth has caused problems in the local village where the people believe he is a reincarnation of a god.
