2/23/2005: Docs remove baby's second head



Elspode sends this one which ranks along the creepiest ever. Egyptian docs removed this baby's second head.

full story

That is just too bizarre. That had to be a tough call to kill off the second head, I mean it was fully developed and functioning.



Kitsune  Wednesday Feb 23 11:17 AM

So, uh, is the second head really another person?

I'll add my vote for this as the creepiest IotD to date.

I hope the little girl does well.

But she had some great career choices available to her ... school nurse or President of the Galaxy.



Elspode  Wednesday Feb 23 12:24 PM

The human machine, when it malfunctions, can produce some pretty mind-numbingly awful results.

How marvelous that medical science can give an unfortunate child and parents some hope of a better life.

Wolf...omigod....

I wonder if her middle name is "Zaphod"?

I cannot imagine that this hasn't happened at some point in history. Circus sideshow would of been this childs future if in fact she would even have a chance at all after a home birth somewhere.

Amazing.



Troubleshooter  Wednesday Feb 23 01:14 PM

Very few things effect me very strongly, but this just... bothers me for some reason.

The other head smiled and blinked.

Was anybody home?



Clodfobble  Wednesday Feb 23 05:26 PM

I think they had determined that besides the blinking and smiling, there was no real brain activity going on in the second head.

Paris Hilton suddenly stops in midstride, furrows her brow, then keeps walking. For a brief instant, irony had her in its grip, but she never knew why..



xoxoxoBruce  Wednesday Feb 23 08:29 PM

Two heads are bett.....Aw, forget it.
That "second head" was no different than a wart, a mole, just a growth.......that blinked and smiled.

Yes, but by that standard, it's alive according to Jeb Bush. I can just imagine the Florida legislature trying to deal with that.

"I'm sorry madam, but we feel that your child should wait until she is 18 so that she can make an informed decision. In fact, we insist."

Jeb Bush fits that description...blinking, smiling, no real brain activity going on...

Hey, how easily could this morph back into the abortion discussion?

It was clearly human and alive, and it may even have had potential until they killed it and removed it with a surgical procedure.

Very easily, that's why I made the comparison. It's not just about abortion though. The only difference between this and the Schiavo case is that a young girl's life is directly affected by the decision.

The little girl looks like she's rather fond of that other head, doesn't she? Nature is a creepy thing. I remember a guy in China who had two faces-kind of like this girl but without the pronounced "other" head. He had another set of eyes, another nose and a mouth with teeth that could smile and chew food. Was unbelievably weird. I don't know if he had corrective surgery or not.

We saw something similiar--about a baby back in the begining of the year--
The second one died
