Off Topic

I recently read a story about a 17 year old girl that gave birth at home and then walk/jogged to the hosptial, while the baby was still attached to her. I have a hard enough time walking and jogging on my own, let alone after giving birth to an 8 pound baby, who is currently still attached to me. The part of the story that bothered me though, is that the doctors praised her for her quick thinking after the baby was born. I am not sure if I would praise the girl who hide her pregnancy for 9 months, and then decided it was a good idea to give birth at home. The other kicker, was she didn't call an ambulance because her phone was disconnected, and she didn't go to a neighbors because she didn't want to wake anyone up so early in the morning. It is so nice that she has everyones well being in mind, except the baby she just had.

I have also decided that people in Austria are giving dungeons a bad name. Last year we had the girl escape from some guys dungeon in an Austrian Suburb. Now we have the wack job, who kept his daughter in a dungeon for 20 plus years and fathered 7 children with her. The question I have posed is who delivered these babies. Did the guy do it. Did he hire a midwife, who was okay with dungeon birth? Maybe he just told her he was a scientologist, and for the baby to be born with the proper amount of thetans, the mother needed to be shackled and gagged. At the end of the day it is pretty horrible, and I won't be going to Austria anytime soon.

So, it's not the gross, gross 20 years of incest that bothers you so much as the delivery dungeon?

Good to know, good to know.

I'll put that on my list of things to remember about Eric:
