Hong Kong man diagnosed a woman — at age 66
Quote:
Hong Kong (June 4, Tue): After visiting the doctor with a swollen abdomen, a 66-year-old who lived his whole life as a man was given a surprising diagnosis: he was a woman.

Doctors realised the patient was female after they found out that the swelling came from a large cyst on an ovary, the Hong Kong Medical Journal reported.

The condition was the result of two rare genetic disorders.

One was Turner Syndrome, which affects girls and women. It results from a problem with the chromosomes, and leads to conditions such as infertility and short stature.

In addition, the patient also suffered congenital adrenal hyperplasia. This increases male hormones and it made the patient, who had a beard and male organs, look like a man.

The 1.37m-tall (4.5ft-tall) patient, who grew up as an orphan, was found to have no testes, a history of urinary leakage since childhood, and stopped growing after puberty at the age of 10.

The doctors said there have been only six cases where both genetic disorders have been reported in medical literature.

The journal said the Vietnam-born Chinese patient decided to continue "perceiving himself as having a male gender with the possible need of testosterone replacement".

Drive thru liquor is something I heard about from a let's play commentary by Team Four Star were one of them lives in I think Georgia but several of the others are Canadian or in New England or something. It was so weird to hear about it like it was a normal thing while the others are saying "no way".

As for the other thing....Bible Belt.

Now who wants to live in China as a teacher?

Bra ban ahead of crucial Chinese exam

Quote:
More than nine million students packed exam halls across China for the opening day of the country's university entrance exam on Friday -- with attempts to stop cheating even leading to bans on metal bra clasps.

Students in the northeastern province of Jilin were banned from wearing clothing with metal parts and education authorities installed metal detectors in exam centres to clamp down on "wireless cheating devices", the state-run Global Times reported.

Authorities have become increasingly concerned about the risk of examinees using devices such as smartphones -- some of which have become smaller and easier to hide -- as an illicit aid during tests.

Around 9.12 million high school students were registered across China to sit the crucially important two-day exam, known as the gaokao, an education ministry spokeswoman said.

Officials aimed to crack down on "sales of high-tech gear for cheating, and gaokao-related fraud", the Global Times said.

But users of China's Twitter-like weibos were scornful. "Everyone is paying attention to the bras. What about glasses?" said one.

Some measures to ensure students reach the annual test on time can be extreme. Pictures posted online showed an amphibious fire engine ploughing through water to deliver a boy dressed in school uniform to the exam in a remote part of Inner Mongolia.

The southern city of Guangzhou introduced dedicated lanes for vehicles taking students to the gaokao, local media said, while parents in China's business hub of Shanghai booked taxis a week in advance for their children.

Alternatively, families rent rooms in nearby hotels to avoid wasting valuable study time commuting to exam halls, the website of the state-run People's Daily reported.

Some parents paid as much as 5,000 yuan ($815) a night for five-star accommodation in Shanghai, after facilities close to schools dubbing themselves "gaokao hotels" sold out of rooms, the report said.

Parents across the country visited temples to make offerings for their children's success, the Global Times said, while photos showed others waiting outside exam rooms with food and drink specially prepared for their children.

There are more than seven million university places available in China for the next academic year, so that most of those who take the test will secure one, but where they will go is hugely dependent on their results.

In Beijing, Chinese, mathematics and English are compulsory subjects, with one other paper in either arts or sciences, and the exam is scored out of a maximum 750 points.

China's top educational institutions such as Peking University or Tsinghua, also in the capital, can demand scores of around 600 or more.

The test has come under fierce criticism on China for putting enormous pressure on students, and as a symbol of educational inequality, with many low-income students whose parents have migrated to cities barred from taking the exam in their new homes.

Top institutions also generally demand higher entry qualifications for applicants from other provinces.

Weibo poster Hu Qijun said: "They claim to aim for fairness, but enrolment, education and employment have turned so unfair we have entered an age where your fate is determined by who your father is. So what's the point of making one single exam fair?"

Questions can be bizarre. "If Thomas Edison returned to the 21st century, what would he think of cellphones?" one province asked this year, requiring an 800-character answer, according to the Sina web portal.

The central province of Hunan offered the single phrase "Walk past" as the topic for a writing composition, the report said.
I want to be the examiner who does the pat down for female entrants- *IS SHOT*

Here's what humanity may look like in about 10,000 years.

They look familiar...somehow.

Lamm speaks of "wresting control" of the human form from natural evolution and bending human biology to suit our needs. The illustrations were inspired by conversations with Dr. Alan Kwan, who holds a PhD in computational genomics from Washington University.
Lamm to spend less time on art more in research. Bending human biology to our need is definition of Natural Selection which is the core of Evolution.

First, it's 100,000, not 10,000. With that out of the way...

I'm pretty sure I read an article recently stating that ancient man had huge eyes, and was weeded out through evolution due to expending too much brain power on sight alone.

That was a recent theory on the extinction of the Neanderthals that claims that they went extinct due to their larger eyes when compared to the surviving Homo Sapiens. The fact that more brain power had to be dedicated to visual decoding meant that less was available to developer social abilities which ultimately left them unprepared for an ice age (or something similar).

Neanderthals' large eyes 'caused their demise' @ BBC News

Maybe all anime actually takes place in the distant future. The reason why the technology looks like today's is because at some point there will be a huge societal collapse reducing us back to barbarism, and we'll have to rebuild our society. By 100,000 years we'll be back up to the level of the early 21st century.

The rainbow hair could be an adaptation to increasing UV rays. Maybe it's actually iridescent, like a blackbird's feathers.
