We had a son that was born at 23 weeks/0 days. Yea, that is 4 months premature. At this time (he turns 4 in December) the biggest problem he has is chronic issues with his gut. The odds are that he never got the correct mix of bacteria in his gut early on, because he was in a sterile environment when his body should have been getting mama milk and the crap that goes along with it. ;)

This is good.

There are no trees!
No Lakes, no water at all!
There is just deep, grey dust.
Dust, dust, dust."

The 10 Most Absurd Scientific Papers 127

Lanxon writes "It's true: 'Effects of cocaine on honeybee dance behavior,' 'Fellatio by fruit bats prolongs copulation time,' and 'Are full or empty beer bottles sturdier and does their fracture-threshold suffice to break the human skull?' are all genuine scientific research papers, and all were genuinely published in journals or similar publications. Wired's presentation of a collection of the most bizarrely-named research papers contains seven other gems, including one about naval fluff and another published in The Journal of Sex Research."
