Things We Saw Today: If Humans Had Sex Like Giraffes

Roxy says “I actually left out the first step of giraffe courtship– the male smacks the female on the bottom to get her to urinate.” But she didn’t stop at giraffes. (io9)

  • Kate Nepveu writes an open letter to Sci-fi and Fantasy authors, asking them to depict pregnancy in a less cliché manner, but it’s actually pretty useful stuff for any writer out there. And her suggestions sound like they’d make any story more interesting. Also, she suggests that birth in Star Trek be accomplished using teleportation, and it sounds so obvious now. (Tor Books)

Girls are Geeks reminds me that I have to get back into cross stitching, with their interview with the blogger behind Mr X Stitch.

Never gonna get tired of comic book characters supporting Occupy Wallstreet. Nope. (Overthinking It)

Zombie princesses: you’re parenting right. (Floorboards)

Here’s your obscure cosplay idea: the time Batman wore another costume over his Batman one because a guy made him terrified of bats. (Comics Alliance)

This lady’s Kickstarter project is awesome. (Kickstarter)

    I am a nerd, and was seriously JUST reading about this, so I have to post it:

    Fetal Transport:

  • Ireth Waverly

    Yeah, there was actually an episode of Star Trek Voyager where a child was born using the transporter, the Original Naomi Wildman. Something went horribly wrong in the process, she destabilized and died in a pretty horrific manner. So birth via transporter= not a great plan.

    Thanks for linking the letter on writing pregnancies.  With NaNoWriMo coming up, I for one can use any helpful ideas out there.

  • Frodo Baggins

    Wow. Sounds like they should have just tried a Cesarean. I don’t even understand how they’d transport a fetus out of a womb. Don’t transporters only work on spatially distinct objects (I’m asking this having watched maybe ten episodes of TNG, Wrath of Khan, and the Jabrams version)?

  • Willie

    The transporter isn’t used for childbirth often (I think Ireth’s reference to Naomi Wildman is the only one shown), but I figure they tossed it in because hey: why not? Given the recovery time a Cesarean requires, I’m pretty sure my wife would have gone with the transporter.

    Also, if by “spatially distinct” you mean “not squirming around in amniotic fluid…” good point. Sometimes you see them transport people/things that are in motion, but I believe it’s much more difficult. I’m sure there’s a compensator built it for it somewhere…

    “Given the recovery time a Cesarean requires”

    Surely not with Star Trek medical technology.

    “if by “spatially distinct” you mean not squirming around in amniotic fluid…” 

    I mean not inside of and attached to another organism that you’re NOT transporting.

    Then I got nothin’ for ya’. :)
