L.D. Ablo: CSB:I went to school with a girl who has 12 toes. The freaky thing is that her feet look totally normal, except for the extra toe on each foot. Her parents decided not to have them removed because they were totally functional.And then there was the girl with the extra nipple. On her side.
ecmoRandomNumbers: Knew it was India before I even clicked. They're like the world capital of birth defects.
Dedo13: My son was born with 12 toes, I wish he could have kept them, they just struck out far enough that he couldn't wear shoes so they had to go...but I miss them!
kemosabe: How does that not get stuck on something and pulled off?

Her parents decided not to have them removed because they were totally functional.And then there was the girl with the extra nipple. On her side.I've had two team mates lose nipples in bike crashes. One was wearing a nipple ring and crashed into a rock Garden and tore it clean off. the other crashed in a crit and scraped it completely off road-rash style. In both cases the nipples completely regenerated. Which is a damn good thing because they were both freaked the fark out about not having a nipple.good to know!I had so much crashes that I barely notice it when I get a small cut in the forarms or calfs, but the only time I hurt my nipples was only a bruise and hurt like HELL! and I 'm a guy. Peoples with nipple-piercing are crazy, IMOAfter that crash I' was afraid a realy unlucky earth-kissing could sand a nipple off.Thank you for the info.
heavymetal: They ignored the most important question in the article, can he pitch?[por-img.cimcontent.net image 346x400]
FirstNationalBastard: Ghastly: If I was born with extra fingers that were fully functional I would be pretty pissed if I found out later in life that my parents cut them off.I still haven't forgiven them for cutting off my extra penis.Joke's on you. Originally you had five penises, but they could never find pants for you that would fit like a glove, so down to one you went.
LadyHawke: If it's functional, then yeah, leave it on, but I would at least separate the fingers that are fused together.sonorangal: The parents might want to reconsider removing the appendage on right hand that sticks out. That will really hurt if he catches it on something.And possibly this too, especially if it's just hanging there and he can't use it.
Arkanaut: I support the parents' decision. He's going to be so good at math once he gets into grade school!
thatboyoverthere: Actually I've thought about it. Ethically should we cut off fully functional extra appendages just to make them fit in? If my kid had an extra finger that worked I wouldn't./Of course with this kid they're deformed and he should probably get surgery.
Haoie: What i it with India and freakish kids? Must be all that lovely 1st world pollution.
limboslam: face it
