As of this morning, 64 more have been found from the Sewol ferry wreckage. 64. And the body count continues to rise. I know I keep posting about this tragedy but the anger and sadness of something that could have been avoided is a constant reminder in all the students that I interact with each and every day. During passing period I was observing my students during their precious 10 minutes of free time before class. In these moments I feel really blessed. Because these kids are alive. They’re alive and talking and laughing and learning. I will forever be grateful for that. Because there are students that won’t get that luxury ever again.
"this baby came out of you but im not 100% sure its yours"
Funny thing - a woman who applied for welfare after her husband left her hadto supply DNA evidence he was actually the father. The results: he was definitely the father, but she wasn’t the mother. Her children were removed from her custody and she was sued for fraud, even though she insisted they were her children.
Turns out, she wasn’t a surrogate or a kidnapper (the two most obvious explanations) - she was a chimera. As an embryo, she fused at a very early stage with her twin, forming one individual. Her ovaries apparently developed from cells that had originally belonged to her vanished twin. Later on more tests showed that while the woman’s skin and hair DNA did not match her childrens, DNA taken from her cervix did.
WHAT THE FUCk
This went from stupid to really interesting in point 5 seconds.
