From Conception to Birth...Holy S%$#

Like most men, I never really thought about where babies come from. As a kid, I assumed that a large stork brought them when they were not performing their full-time job delivering Vlasic Pickles.  As a teenager, I just assumed that you needed some sort of license to order one. It wasn't until my friends started having kids in their twenties that it all clicked. My friend's wife was sitting on the couch and I actually could see the baby kick. I have to say, this was one of the most horrifying things that I had ever seen. I actually said "Oh my god. You have something alive inside you. It's like Aliens." Needless to say, this is not really what a pregnant woman wants to hear in her 8th month, especially from her husband's perpetually drunk friend. Obviously, I eventually grew up and got a better understanding where everything comes from....but I have to say, I never really understoond the whole thing. If you are like me, then be prepared to be blown away. The good folks at TED (the conference, not the airline) and Alexander Tsiaras have developed a 9:34 video that showcases the activity that occurs from conception to birth. All I can say is WOW!!! It is amazing that my little Dumptruck and Puddin' did this. Simply amazing. No seriously. I have no joke here. No witty pun. Nothing. Just awe. Simple unrefined awe. StumbleUpon Pin It Now!
