Leeds: keli_kitty: FTA: Careful administration of follicle stimulating hormone can stimulate ovaries to produce as many as 70 mature eggs at once.

I thought women are born with a fixed amount of eggs (400?) and they take their turns to come out. Can a woman "produce" more eggs, or is it a poor choice of word on the author's part?

You are correct. The hormone does not "produce" the eggs. It's more like the hormones "weaponize them" and get them suited up for deployment.


Weaponized ovum?

I'd prefer to do it the old fashioned way. Impregnate as many women as possible, then choose the kid that turns out best to acknowledge.

The My Little Pony Killer: Cythraul: I wonder how world filled completely with beautiful, super-intelligent, super-athletic, almost flawless heterosexuals would function?

"heterosexuality" is not a term that is accurately applied to Ancient Greece.

Oznog: Only about 10% of the population is left-handed. Thus a left-handed fencer will have 90% of his experience against right-handed opponents and know how to fight them, but a right-handed fencer will only face a left-handed fencer 10% of the time and will have little experience in this mode.


Comedy is watching two left-handed novice fencers fence each other. They are typically completely ignorant of same-handed fencing tactics, so the result is something akin to a monkey humping a football.

So let me get this "straight," according to this article is homosexuality due to genetics or "rearing?"

I was able to discipline my children from being brunettes into being blondes, so I would reasonably assume that sexual orientation is similarly a product of child rearing.

/tee tee hee. Rearing.

Leeds: FTFA:

Bioinformatic studies have identified genes contributing to athletic performance, intelligence, height, myopia, mental health, homosexuality, and artistic talent.
Children's attributes are limited by their parent's genetic contributions and rearing environment,

// Probably lots and lots of rearing going on in the gay community, which might make this harder to answer...

psunbird92: Cannot wait until the "gay" trait/gene is discovered. Watch as scores of left leaning individuals turn pro life faster than you can say furious.


I'm pro-abortion. If religious zealots want to abort their fetuses because they are found to have a gene for homosexuality, they should have every right to do so.

ANY woman should at ANY time have the right to abort a fetus growing within her body for ANY reason.

Mugato: Hitler really put the kibosh on the whole eugenics thing (as well as that mustache style) and turned everyone off to it but as a function of making our species better and speeding up what natural selection is going to do anyway.....there's little argument against it.

The Shatner Incident: If you are paying tens of thousands of dollars to have a a kid that originated in a petri dish, it's just quality control in my mind.


And with the number of slack-jaws, yokels and hill-billies out there breeding like diseaded rabbits, what kind of difference is this brand of 'quality control' supposed to make?

In order for a few test-tube babies to make a difference, we need to also start routinely sterilizing people with fewer teeth than toes.
