 "If somebody knocked on the door right now and said, 'It's a guaranteed pill. Give this to Brooke and she'll be fixed,' well first I would say to him, 'She's not broken.' And B, I would say, 'Thank you, but no thank you," Howard said in a video filmed for the "Katie" show.

The mother is a terrible person.

How long until this devolves into a Chris Hansen vs. Pedobear cage match?

Also, someone should set up a cage match between Chris Hansen and a guy in a pedobear outfit.

There is one girl on a commercial for home health care services here that has something similar. She looks about 9 months old, is the size of an infant, but on the commercial she's on the computer, purposely manipulating the mouse and reading something. She has a breathng tube and glasses. They don't say an age or the name of her condition, just how happy they are that Home Health Care allows her to live at home full time.

I don't know if she is a "terrible" person, but I can't understand why she wouldn't want her child to have a more normal life and not have a mystery condition that has kept her in the body of a 4-year-old for 16 years, being fed through a tube.  Perhaps she is resigned to the situation and knows there isn't a magical pill coming, and that's how she deals with such a difficult thing.  I suspect if that personal really did come knocking with a pill, she'd absolutely take it for her daughter.

Click the Daily Mail link (yes, I said that) to really be freaked out. She will never age and can heal herself. She could live forever barring any accidents. She had a brain tumor that disappeared. She had a stroke with no effects, etc.

It could be a number of reasons.  First of all, she loves her kid, so she cannot admit there is something "wrong" with her.  It may be moms only defense against hating her own kid. Or perhaps like many parents, don't want their kid to ever grow up.

Either way, I'm surprised that some rich person hasn't stole her to figure out what's wrong genetically. Whatever this kid is missing, may hold the key to immortality.

If a mythical pill to "cure" homosexuality existed would it be horrible to turn that down for your kid? They have a pretty rough time growing up. What about curing shortness? Do we all want to be average?

Hell, even making the majority of us reach 100 would seriously fark the human race.

My nine year old had the immortality discussion in school today. Ethics in the fourth grade - I like it.

There is no such thing as immortality. Just unusually long life spans.

I want to take your word for it, but that would be my little sister's age and I remember her and her friends and none of them were ever treated like snowflakes. I felt bad for what most of them had to go through.

I dunno, maybe I didn't live in such a high class neighborhood as you.

You probably didn't but a lot of them did.  It has nothing to do with 'high class' and everything to do with decency.

I'd be interested to know if her bones are fused together like an adults or if they are like a 4 year old's. If the bone structure is like an adult's in child proportions I'd think that it'd be a new type of dwarfism/growth hormone thing with developmental delays (halt is a better word I guess) in the brain.

Imagine a stranger walking up to the mother and Brooke in a store somewhere and saying "Oh what a cute baby! If only they'd stay this way forever!"

You know it's happened at least once.

This is worse than the 20,30 year olds who look like kids. I outgrew my little sister but nothing compared to that. Jebbus

Kind of looks like it--with some kind of arrested progeria or Angelman's syndrome? (Type of developmental delay with microcephaly) The age of onset is kind of strange, though; but she looks like she had some kind of organic brain disfunction or injury. Infection maybe?

OMG...... journalism is so dead.

#1: Is she mentally a 20-year old? Or does she have diminished capacity?
#2: Is she not aging at all? IE: has she experienced puberty? Has she gotten adult teeth?

Can anyone write an article that answers BASIC questions anymore? WTF?

Maybe you should. She weighs 16 pounds and has an estimated mental age of nine months to one year.

Apparently she had a tumor when she was young but it disappeared.  Her cells are also aging normally, even if her overall body is not, so she'll probably start developing wrinkles and such as she gets even older.

Long story short - she's going to be one farked up looking infant when she's a senior citizen.

Here I was, eager to extol the "Lolita" angle, but am I to understand the 20 year old in question is the one being carried on the far left?

Yeah, I'll be the last to judge you for whatever your particular kink is, but if anyone with a normal sized dong inserts it into something that tiny, it damn well better be a fleshlight.

I remember during my Mormon days some guy was talking about patriarchal blessings (basically a fortune cookie on steroids, but without the cookie) and how he talked with some other dude who had to come up with one for a profoundly "special needs" kid. What he pulled out of his ass was something to do with the kid having been, prior to meatspace life, one of the angels who escorted Lucifer out of Heaven. The idea was Skypappy had the kid's back by using a loophole to keep the kid childlike and innocent until he assumed room temperature so Satan couldn't screw with him and this kid would be absolutely without sin, guaranteed a spot in the velvet rope section, 72 virgins, and a Lamborghini Countach that never runs out of gas.

All I could think of was "How many assholes had to bounce Lucifer Skywalker down to hell? Cuz there are a whole lot of retards* out there, have been in the past, and there will be many more."

* including me, but I got my bugs patched with filthy science; against the Abrahamic god's will, of course.
