I should be in the kitchen: This is exactly why I'm pro-choice. This family chose to go through all the expense and medical procedures and that's bully for them, but no family should be *forced* to do the same if their kid has some horrible condition. I would absolutely terminate the pregnancy if it was me (same with conditions like spinal bifida or the condition where the fetus has no brain, whatever it's called.)

Gawdzila: stringbad: FizixJunkee: Gawdzila: FizixJunkee: Nerd question here: Is the topology of a person with his intestines outside his body the same as that of a "normal" person?

Hmmm, interesting... the topology of an object refers to properties of connectedness that forbid actually tearing or making holes in the object or surfaces in question. It seems to me that you can't get insides on the outside without creating a hole in the skin, so they would in fact have different topologies.

That was my conclusion, too, but I wanted to double check.

Sorry to repeat myself, they are both donut shaped so topology remains the same. Horrible thought experiment but smooth both of the childrens surfaces until you are left with the simplest form.

I don't see how someone with a hole in their stomach is donut-shaped...
Every normal person is already a torus, being meat wrapped around the the continuous "hole" from our mouth to our asses. It seems to me that this kid basically took the surface from around the hole and poked it through a point on the surface on the outside of the donut so that it now has 2 holes. I'm not very studied in topology by any means, but my meager understanding is that you can't generally poke a new hole in any surface of an object without changing its topology.

/Yes this is a pretty horrible thought experiment

Maybe she'll grow up to be a Moebius stripper.

I see someone managed to take their swing all the way over the bar.

I get a visceral reaction to a story about someone with so much intestinal fortitude, such guts.
