This Baby was Born without a Nose; Doctors to Build Him One

A baby in Alabama was born without a nose, a condition that is so rare it has a chance of happening to one in 10 billion people…

A baby in Alabama was born without a nose, a condition that is so rare it has a chance of happening to one in 10 billion people [a weird statistic considering there are only around 7.3 billion people in the entire world!].

Timothy Eli Thompson had to undergo tracheotomy when he was just 5 days old because he was born without a nose. Though he can, of course, breathe through his mouth, the tracheotomy gives him a better chance of survival, for obvious reasons.

As with all parents, 23-year-old Brandi McGlathery was hoping for a “perfectly healthy baby boy” but was shocked to find out her baby did not have a nose. He was born prematurely on March 4 and had to stay for three weeks at the hospital.

Despite his appearance, Brandi calls Eli their “perfect miracle baby”

Eli’s parents have learned to deal with his disability. Worried about how the child will cope with his peers while growing up, Brandi is looking into having a nose built for him; however, the doctors are not sure whether this artificial nose will become functional.

Still, Brandi loves Eli and thinks he is their “perfect miracle baby”. She said Eli is “the most beautiful boy I’ve ever laid eyes on” but fears “the world won’t see him as the beautiful, brave little boy that I see him as”.

Despite spending most of his first weeks with the nurses at the neonatal intensive-care unit of USA Children’s and Women’s Hospital in Mobile, Alabama, Eli seems to recognize Brandi because he slept very peacefully in her arms the first time she was finally allowed to hold him for over 15 minutes.

What a lovely boy. Let’s hope the doctors could grow him a functional nose.

Leah Palmer? Oh yeah, she’s great! She has it all; nice life, good looks, great friends and family… But, she’s NOT real!

It is incredible what technology can do these days. For many, it is an indispensable extension to their lives while others enjoy a better life away from the temptations of modern technology.

There are some, however, who become victims of technology. This could happen in many different ways but identity theft is one of the most puzzling crimes perpetuated by people who probably have too much time in their hands and criminals with malicious intent.

The case of Leah Palmer is the perfect example. She’s a stunning, bubbly woman in her 20s whose happy-go-lucky lifetime in Dubai was perfect for juggling 6 boyfriends!...

Teacher Smashes Guy’s Nuts With AXE After Science Experiment Goes Wrong

What an unfortunate AXE-ident!

By

Do you remember the science experiments that you did when you were still in school? I remember dissecting a frog during Biology class. The poor frog must have been begging for its life and we, the evil human students, ignored its silent pleas as we sliced its belly open.

I remember burning zinc and magnesium and other types of elemental ribbons during Chemistry class. We had too much fun burning stuff our classroom ended up looking like a pot session hall. I remember throwing an egg wrapped in drinking straw five floors from the ground during Physics class. The straw-wrapped egg, rather than safely landing on the ground, landed on a freshman's head instead (sorry, freshman, wherever you are right now).
