Baby Born From Embryo Frozen 24 Years Ago

Baby Born From Embryo Frozen 24 Years Ago:  A 26-year-old American woman has given birth to a baby that grew from an embryo frozen 24 years earlier, in what could be a record length between the donating of an embryo and the delivery of a child.  All I can say is, this poor kid has to have one hell of a confusing birth certificate.  I mean, if Trump thought Obama’s birth certificate was a problem, this outta make his head spin right off.  And considering its Tennessee, I’m rather surprised she hasn’t been summoned for jury duty by now.  That said, the parents insist the child is doing quite well and is already asking permission to watch old episodes of “Friends.”

Beetle Penises Hold Clues For Better Medical Devices:  Researchers at Kiel University in Germany say the stiffness of beetle penises may help solve an engineering problem people who design medical catheters have had for a long time - how do you keep a very thin tube flexible enough to snake into hard-to-reach area, but still remain rigid enough to withstand insertion?  In related news, lawyers for research beetles with hard, but flexible penises - have just announced a $4 million sexual harassment suit against Kiel University in Germany.

New Species of Glow in the Dark Sharks Discovered in Hawaii:  Earlier this year, a new species of deepwater shark who’s underbelly glows in the dark, was discovered in waters surrounding the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands.  The light works as camouflage and helps them to hunt, communicate and find sexual partners.  Gee, must be one of those Fukushima sharks.  They have a certain glow about them.  As if the world situation isn’t bad enough, and now they’re telling me that light at the end of the tunnel may turn out to be a shark?

As it happens, I'm the father of an in vitro baby, though he's no longer a baby. Since the embryo appears to be about the same age as the mother, my first question is where/who did the egg and sperm come from? I also reside in Tennessee, and I can tell you that's not usually the way fathers around here impregnate their daughters.

Generally speaking, I'd love links to stories

Hi Kosher!  The way I usually get them is simply Google them.  That way, you usually get a lot to choose from.
