  1. First Auditory Brainstem Implant in a Child Is the Best Thing You’ll See Today

    Grayson Clamp just heard his father for the first time, and if that doesn't brighten up your day we don't know what will.

    Three-year-old Grayson Clamp was born without a cochlear nerve, meaning that he was completely deaf. He was unable to get a cochlear implant, so his parents signed him up to participate in a trial as the first child in the U.S. to have an auditory brainstem implant.

    Anyone who knows me is aware of several things. One: I'm a card-carrying cinephile who will dork out about movies at the drop of a hat. Two: I own the world's best sofa. (It's really comfy. Also it's corduroy.) Three: My sweet tooth knows no bounds. So needless to say I'd like to take a trip to Sweet!, the 30,000 sq. ft. Willy Wonka-themed candy store that opened recently in Los Angeles. Look at it. Feel its glory. Yearn to be let loose at the Star Wars and Ghostbusters displays. Feel slightly discomfited looking at the sexy lounging cow. Gasp in awe at the Harry Potter portrait made of jelly beans. Rear back from your computer in fright upon seeing the Oompa Loompas. (It's a conditioned reflex.) I'll take one of everything, please. More photos under the jump.
