I'm going to change your world: incognito mode - Firefox and Chrome both have them.

Do mermaids lay eggs or live birth? Also, please, ain't no one gonna try to charge a velociraptor sales tax.

Dude, c'mon. Everybody knows:

In mermaids, reproduction is much like that of dolphins. The reproductive organs of both the male and female are akin to the dolphin and whale, and mermaid babies are born live (as opposed to hatched from eggs).

New Delhi (AFP) - An Indian woman who discovered she had mostly male chromosomes has given birth to healthy twins after intensive treatment in what doctors said Monday was the "rarest of rare cases".

The 32-year-old had an intersex condition in which she had the physical appearance of a woman but had more than 95 percent XY chromosomes, fertility specialist Sunil Jindal told AFP.

The woman underwent more than 12 months of hormonal and other medical treatment to develop her "infantile uterus" to allow her to eventually carry and give birth on Friday to a boy and girl.

"This is akin to a male delivering twins," said Jindal by phone from Meerut city, some 70 kilometres (43 miles) northeast of New Delhi.

"She did not undergo puberty and never menstruated. When we investigated further we found that she had a very small vagina and an infantile uterus."

Jindal said his team of doctors discovered during their research that there had only ever been five reported cases of such pregnancies in the world.

"It's nothing short of a medical miracle. We are really happy that we could pull it off."

He said the woman was startled to learn she had the condition, but was determined to undergo the treatment to get pregnant.

"Even she did not know she had this condition and was flabbergasted when we told her about it. But the husband was very supportive and told her 'no matter what you continue to be my wife'," he said.

Her husband's sperm was used to fertilise a donor egg which was then implanted in the woman's now developed uterus.

The babies were born through caesarean section, weighing 2.25 kilos (4.9 pounds) and 2.50 kilos (5.5 pounds) each.

tl:dr, man gives birth to twins.

Fibro is real. Apparently almost 1% of Americans suffer from it.

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a "serious, debilitating" condition with a cluster of clear physical symptoms — not a psychological illness — a panel of experts reported Tuesday as it called for more research into a disease that may affect as many as 2.5 million Americans.

....

Clayton also emphasized that many people with chronic fatigue syndrome also have other medical problems, which can complicate diagnosis and treatment.

"Lots of adults have more than one thing going on," she said. "If they meet these criteria, they have this disorder. They can have something else as well, which is not uncommon in medicine."

Check your wellness privilege. Fibro and chronic fatigue are not the same thing.

3%+ of Americans suffer from Somatic Symptom Disorder. I suspect there's quite a bit of overlap.

You know better than me, but one of the articles in my Google News feed used both terms interchangeably. However, I did a quick search and found the below. All this is making me kinda tired; I better go home and take a nap.

Most experts agree that the symptoms of CFS and FM are so close that they are - for all intents - the same disorder. It's a bit like Jekyll and Hyde, or perhaps like Chang and Eng Bunker, the Siamese twins made famous by P.T. Barnum. They were both the same "person" but had two different names, two similar but different personalities.

Editor's Note: Dr. Lapp is Director of the Hunter-Hopkins Center in Charlotte, one of the few medical practices in the US specializing in the treatment of CFS and fibromyalgia.

Nah, man. Fibro with CFS is way worse than just fibro. Oddly enough, CFS with fibro is worse than just CFS.

Savvy?

FYI, y'all: Asshole anti-vaxxers can be asshole anti-vaxxers because they have white privilege.

Oh wow, that article is gold.

EDIT - if you suckle off the teat of the government and spend your welfare on crack and alcohol instead of medical care you are a free loader. If you don't spend the money you earn at a job on vaccinating your kids you are a "free loader." Holy fucking shit.

I think she's being overly kind with her assignment of intent and conditions for the folks she's defending. I say this as someone that was doing clinical internship in Detroit doing just this sort of thing when they lost $100 million or so in vaccination funding from the Feds because they literally could not give the shots away.

Yeah, that is some pretty shitty analysis. Though, it is based on a legitimate point that affluent anti-vaccine people are putting more vulnerable populations at an even higher risk than they already are.

The comments are pretty good too. I have to admit I get a special chuckle when folks decrying "privilege," etc. try to marginalize another poster by calling them "dudebro." Or wait...that's okay when they do it, right?
