Around The Internets

North Carolina boy Grayson Clamp was born without cochlear nerves. He was completely deaf, and even a cochlear implant didn’t work.

Clamp’s parents, Len and Nicole, found another option: an auditory brainstem implant. The only problem was that Grayson would be the first child in the United States to have that surgery – one where a microchip is implanted in the brain and interprets sound coming through the ear canals.

Here’s a cute little video that shows the dangers of lightsabers when they fall into the wrong hands. Tiny, tiny hands.

“Why do they even make baby sabers?”

Non-parents think that moms and dads are crazy when they say that it’s a workout just being a parent. It is! There’s no better way to shed that baby weight than to play with your baby.

Except maybe to use your baby as weights. But I digress…

NutraPlanet wanted to let us know that they’ve got irrefutable evidence that babies burn calories and they’ve got the infographics to prove it!

Bananas. Taken from the Chelles Battle Pro competition in Paris this past weekend, B-girl Terra tears up the floor like Chuck Norris and Yoda. Here’s the original video which has over 1 million views.

My favorite comment so far.

And here’s Terra’s highlights from that night from a closer camera.

Here she is again when she was just five years-old.

Props to her dad for the high-five and support from the side of the stage.

I’m sure you’ll be seeing more of her too. Cue Ellen, Today Show, etc.

Your Imaginary Friends

Imaginary Friends

Thanks to David Vienna at The Daddy Complex for tipping us off to this Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal comic by Zach Weiner. Click the image for the full comic.

Fathers around the globe know what it’s like to be blinded by the pain of a freshly-crushed tomato. And by that, I mean a squashed testicle. Kids love to run up and hug you, usually at the expense of your man-bits.

This is where the Cock Blocker comes in. It effectively obscures your junk from the impact of a throttling child who’s not conscious that they’re not the only little ones you love in your life.
