This Baby Blew My Mind!

posted by randy mccarten -

Last night I was getting ready to watch Wheel of Fortune...Pat Sajak make me laugh.  Anyway I tuned in a little early and the news was still on.  This story came on about a baby named Emma that was about a month ago.  Mom & baby are healthy.  The baby came to be from an embryo that was frozen 24 years ago!   The Mom that had the baby was 18 months old when the embryo was frozen.  It all just blew my mind.  

Think about it.  Emma was kind of in suspended animation for 24 years.  How different would her life have been if she was born back in 1992?  All the other lives she would have touched during that time and how that would have changed the course of thing.  I get the same feeling when watching Back To The Future.  It just set me back thinking about it all and my brain kind of went into overload.  

Is it just me or did anyone else think the same thing?  What science can do is cool and scary at the same time.
