Jim_Callahan: Yeah, India is basically case in point for why the US shouldn't attempt to weaken or undermine the EPA.


THIS.

I've been to India. It's a farking sewer. Any "small government" conservative who opposes the EPA should be forced to go live there for a month.

Hell, riding on their roads even gave me a little more respect for traffic cops in the USA. Indian traffic is utter pandemonium. I don't even know why they bother painting lines on the road, everyone ignores them.

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.

1984 Bhopal disaster

For good measure, not only does this child's family live in Bhopal, but kid's father is a survivor of the Bhopal disaster I linked about above.

There's a billion of them, and apparently in some village backwaters the ones that have weird defects are considered to have the shinning.

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.


I dunno. If your kids teeth are all jagged and he has a pronounced overbite, should you get your kid orthodontics? Let assume for the sake of argument that it doesn't affect his ability to eat or speak clearly.

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.


I'd definitely remove that one finger that's just sticking out. I don't know about fixing the fused fingers. I used to know a girl who had a couple of fused fingers like that. They didn't bother her--might be a handicap today, though, since everyone has to type on keyboards. And these are the kid's thumbs, so maybe best to just leave them alone. They're important

I don't see how you could do much about his feet either, since it's his big toes that are sticking out there awkwardly, and you don't want to remove those. He's going to have a problem with shoes, for sure.

Wouldn't it be easier to make special shoes than to cut off toes?

Chinese women with bound feet made their own shoes all their lives. It isn't rocket science.

gsiofa: Ok, but how's his curveball?

Arkanaut: Pretty average, if he's anything like Antonio Alfonseca. Everybody knows you gotta lose fingers if you want that extra twist to your curve (see Brown, Mordecai).

I don't know about that. Check out those wide assed thumbs, and the large gap between them and the index finger.

It appears to me that this hand was created just for putting a wicked spin on ball.
Of course he was born in India, and they play cricket there, not baseball.

I was born with an extra thumb and it wasn't removed until I was about two and a half years old. Growth of the remaining thumb on that hand was stunted enough from just those two years that it's nearly an inch shorter and only about 60% as thick as the one on the other hand.

I suspect that's how he lost one of his fingers when he was two years old

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.


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.

And the little boy's father is a survivor of the Bhopal Disaster, which just increases the chances of his children having birth defects.

Do his thumbs really count as four thumbs? If they fused together like they are I would say he only has 2 thumbs.
