Title: Tiny freakish girl "just the same as other people" claims tiny, freakish girl

Good lord but she is a wee one.  She kind of freaks me out in that normally small people are dwarfs and as such have stunted little bodies.  This girl seems comparatively normally-proportioned despite being the size of a toddler.  Kind of like she became a toddler and her body said "Right, that's enough growing for me, thank you.  I think this will do nicely, actually."

That picture of her with her school friends. The girl on the far left has this expression on her face that says "I like her and all but really, it's a little unsettling."

i was just talking about this with a friend today and we concluded it would be kind of upsetting if this girl ended up being incredibly brilliant or talented or something because no one would ever take her seriously. she'd be all "guys i really want to major in rocket science" and everyone else would be all HEY I BET I COULD PUT YOU IN A BAG AND CARRY YOU AROUND, DID YOU KNOW YOU'RE REALLY SMALL I JUST THOUGHT I'D POINT THAT OUT.

Thinking of her majoring in rocket science, maybe she could be an astronaut. Mass is the critical thing when you're boosting something into space, isn't it? Who better than a tiny person?

Not to mention she would consume much less oxygen that a normal sized person.

At that, maybe she should be an oceanographer?

She could be a P.I., along the lines of Inch High. She'd also make a very challenging opponent in hide and seek.

On the subject of little people, I helped a midget compose his resume at my volunteer position today and one of his jobs was as a Midget Wrestler. Definitely the highlight of my week.

What's real sad about that baby is that the parents won't take it in for medical care. I'm all for respecting peoples' religions, but isn't there a line where the health of the baby needs to be pushed to the forefront and their belief that this baby is Ganush pushed a little to the back? That seems like a really tricky situation for the doctors, and I hope they figure it out.

But, yeah. A baby with two faces is kind of cute looking.

I wonder what kind of surgery would it be, if the surgeons were allowed to do it. I mean, would they just "erase" the other face in some gigantic operation or something?
Title: Re: Tiny freakish girl "just the same as other people" claims tiny, freakish gir
Post by: dennis on 09 Apr 2008, 23:38
I think the headline is misleading. The article doesn't mention anything about doing surgery. The doctors just want to see if she's ok, and will grow without problems.

I should not have clicked on the two-faced baby story, I knew it would bring me nothing but sadness. In general I feel really, really bad when any human being looks scary enough to actually make me feel kind of ill and generally freaked out.

Kind of makes me feel like a jerk.

Yeah, it appears there's nothing they can really do for it, aside from just watching it (and it's probably a once in a lifetime kind of thing, so a lot of interesting medical stuff could be learned from it). But without the parents' permission there's not much they can do.

This has happened a fair few time before, eg:

this is Lali from Saini Sunpura, 50kms due east of New Dheli, India

I can't fin musch on humans but from what I can find out on craniofacial duplication in animals doesn't look to promising. Many two-faced animals don't live long due to the resulting internal organ and brain abnormalities. One problem for this child would be the dual oesophagus and trachea.

My Grandfather spent from shortly after WWII until retirement when I was a teenager working at an airplane manufacturing plant as an electrician.  He told me that he used to have an entire crew of dwarves working for him because they could fit in the little tiny places in the aircraft wings, etc. that other people couldn't.   

They used to specifically hire dwarves and would put ads in the paper like "Midgets wanted: Will train as electrician"   

Just thought I'd pass that little anecdote of Grandpa's along.

Whilst she is genuinely sweet, one does get the impression that Huda could legitimately bite your face off if the mood took her.

Also, Tania is actually quite terrifying but I enjoy the luxury of antagonising her from the relative safety of the internet. She is after all considerably stronger than me, a black belt in karate and quietly seethes with the unbridled fury of twenty militant feminists. Undoubtedly I will regret my words when the beating that is certainly heading my way is administered but in the mean time, it's a guilty pleasure. I am the internet equivalent of all those sub prime mortgage lenders. I am literally writing cheques my ass can't cash and praying that she never calls in the debt.

I have observed this slight correlation, though it's probably not true in other places.  Most of the tall people I know, guys in the 6'2" and taller range and women who are 5'11" or so, are really, really laid back.  The most terrifying friends I have are a guy who is 5'7" and a girl who is 5'1".

It makes sense.

I'm 6'5", 325 lbs., size 15 feet, 7' wingspan, my hands are 8"long and 10" wide, etc.

I don't need to be fierce.  My visage is intimidating enough.  Yes, I am large enough that I can reffer to it as a visage.



If I was a tiny person, I might need to develope a more aggressive attitude for my own protection.

My most terrifying friend is a 5' male, I would put money on him versus most anybody. I am 6' and growing, and I am pretty laid back, my friend who is slightly taller than me is a lot angrier, but he has to deal with dumbshits all day, so I can't blame him.

That picture of the Colossus straddling the waterway makes me want to know something which I am sure has been asked before: Was he anatomically correct?

Just to go slightly back towards the original topic (though I agree with the sentiment above). WTF is with this quote (re: two-faced baby):

Quote
Another local doctor, Bridal Nagar, said she was not an "abnormal baby" but just one with two faces living a normal life, but who might face problems later on.

"And if she dies it's as God wishes," he added.

A local doctor said that?? O... kay. That's a helpful attitude. Plus, aren't you curious about why? Seriously, I want to know what she is genetically (is she made of two fertilised eggs?), what her brain is like, how her nostrils and sinuses work and what her trachea/oesophagus looks like! Maybe that's seeing her as a freak show but how the hell does the two-faced thing actually work?!

P.S. Evandar? As in Evandar the guardian from the Deverry series? That's an awesome awesome name. I love Katherine Kerr. Just finished her most recent book, so your reference made me smile lots (unless there's another Evandar which I am wondering...)

Post by: Barmymoo on 29 Apr 2008, 04:39
I see your point, Fenris, but I also understand why her parents would rather they didn't poke around to find out how she works. I mean, back when Michaelangelo was working out how the average human body worked he waited until the people were dead before having a good look. So really, if doctors want to find out what's going on with her faces and how it happened etc, they shouldn't treat her any differently to how they treat people with just the one face.

That really really isn't as articulate as I'd have liked but I've just had an hour and a half of Chaucer analysis and my brain has dissolved.

Your post seemed to imply that gay people are always sweet. This is not the case.
I'm not saying that you are a bad bad stereotyping person, I am just saying that the way you worded your last post leaves some to be desired. It sounded like "hey here's a tall person who is sweet, but he's gay anyways so ignore the fact that he's tall and sweet because gay people are always sweet". Why else would you mention he is gay?

Liz you are letting yourself be made sad and that is a self defeating cycle. If nobody likes you now, no one more will like you if you just mope and let my words hurt you. What people like to see is confidence. There's nothing more attractive than a confident, comfortable person aware of themselves, their shortfalls, and their strengths.
Oh and tits. Try padding your bra or something.

The thought that popped into my head when I saw that picture was not "ooh, big boobs" or indeed "what a tiny waist" but "why is she wearing pink and red together?". Although actually, it doesn't look too bad on her. Not much does, in my opinion, but my opinion may be based partially (totally) on my worship of her music.

Most, if not all, of the scarily odd shit we have just seen came out of India. Apparently, a population of 1.1 billion tends to bring out the statistically unlikely.

so what about China? China has way more people than India. i think there's something in the air or water in India because there seems to be an abnormal amount of genetic anomallies(sp?) over there compared to most other places.

or maybe they're all just humping their cousins or something. i don't know, i'm not a doctor.

and besides that's just someone doing something we all do (growing) alot more than the rest of us. he doesn't have multiple faces/trees for hands/crazy face bubbles/melting nose/whatever.

i am not impressed, China.

Plus, aren't you curious about why? Seriously, I want to know what she is genetically (is she made of two fertilised eggs?), what her brain is like, how her nostrils and sinuses work and what her trachea/oesophagus looks like! Maybe that's seeing her as a freak show but how the hell does the two-faced thing actually work?!

Having two fertilised eggs in the womb makes fraternal twins. Since fraternal twins start out as two separate entities altogether, they would never fuse together to form something like that. Even if they were to implant too close together in the uterine wall, they might come out with a misshapen limb or something from overcrowding at worst. Two (http://home.graffiti.net/rjisaac:graffiti.net/vac-pics/2headedcow.jpg)-headed (http://www.flatrock.org.nz/topics/animals/assets/two_headed_goat.jpg) anythings (http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2006/03/images/060317_two_headed_big.jpg) are what happens when a single zygote tries to split and produce identical twins and fails to complete the separation. Most of them don't survive because of the strain placed on the single heart, and the ones that do are like this baby girl who doesn't have too many extra blood vessels and organs to power or are actually split apart a bit more and have two hearts.

Here (http://www.jstor.org/pss/3624480) is an analysis of the autopsy of a two-headed calf.

Actually, two-headed things are the work of the devil, and are a portent of dire things to come.
