    Wow. If they can really do that, that is amazing. Good Luck to them.

    Extra appendages never work out as awesome as cartoons and comic books suggest.

    Life really is full of dissapointments.

    Still, this'll be good practice for the sharp increase in mutations we'll see in the upcoming apocalyptic future. Hope it goes well, for her and for the doctors.

    So yeah. She's a god-send with extra appendages, and they're cutting the only things that make her special off.

    Does it make sense? Nope. Do half the things in the news these days? Nope.

    It's probably either cut off her extra limbs and mass, and worship her as someone born as a godsend for the rest of her extended life, provided the surgery is successful, or worship at her grave in a couple of years, after her parasitic twin has killed her.

    A very likely possibility, But I think 'Normal' has gone out the window for this child.

    Eventually we'll just have a machine into which you can toss a baby still sloppy from the womb, and it'll saw off the extra limbs and sew things up right quick. The unwanted limbs will find homes with the Soylent Corporation and avant-garde artists.

    Given that she's so young, I wonder if later on in life she'll have vague memories of her parasitic twin, or the constant, unnerving feeling that something's missing?

    poor kid, hope she'll be okay.

    pretty fantastic abormality tho if not for the fact it was due to an aborted twin.

    The only reason they thought that was due to your two inch legs.
