    Baby boy born without a penis


    KANGAR: While the birth certificate of 10-month-old Muhammad Nabil Mustaqim Rodzake states that he is male, he lacks a penis.
    When he was born without the male organ last Aug 10 at the Tuanku Fauziah Hospital, he was subjected to a DNA test which confirmed he had more male characteristics.
    Unusual condition: Rodzake and Zatul Bazamah showing their son Muhammad Nabil at their home near Kangar. — Bernama
    Nabil Mustaqim was also born without a right thumb, right ear and proper eyelids.
    His mother, Zatul Bazamah Abd Rahman, is now seeking help from medical specialists to fix the problem.
    Zatul Bazamah, 26, said:
    “We are sad to think that he will grow up without the male organ, and the emotional stress that awaits him.”
    The baby – the second child in the family – is now receiving treatment at the Tuanku Fauziah Hospital and Sultanah Bahiyah Hospital in Alor Star.
    “We have been told that our son needs to wait a little longer for suitable treatment for his genitals while his other physical defects could be fixed with plastic surgery when he is four years old,” said Zatul Bazamah at the family home in Kampung Batu Lima near here.
    The baby’s father, Rodzake Namis, 34, hoped the treatment could be carried out as soon as possible. — Bernama

    If you need me to coach you to get it right, let me know. hehe..


    HOW SMART IS YOUR RIGHT FOOT?


    This is hysterical. You have to try this. It is absolutely true. I
    guess there are some things that the brain cannot handle.

    HOW SMART IS YOUR RIGHT FOOT?

    You have to try this please, it takes 2 seconds. I could not believe
    this!!! It is from an orthopedic surgeon............ This will boggle your mind and you will keep you trying over and over again to
    see if you can outsmart your foot, but, you can't. It's pre-programmed in your brain!

    1. Without anyone watching you (they will think you are GOOFY.......)
    and while sitting at your desk in front of your computer, lift your
    right foot off the floor and make clockwise circles.

    2. Now, while doing this, draw the number '6' in the air with your
    right hand. Your foot will change direction.

    I told you so!!! And there's nothing you can do about it! You and I
    both know how stupid it is, but before the day is done you are going to try it again, if you've not already done so.

    Send it to your friends to frustrate them too.

    I just did.

    This is a lovely blast from the past.

    Apparently this product was available from your neighbourhood pharmacist/chemist circa 1885. It must have been a best seller!

    Good one. But you should be able to beat the trick if you write the '6' starting at the bottom .

    Here's another challenging one. See how many you know.

    Nice picture though. Amazing isn't it?

    There are more than 100 world known
    personalities on this painting. If you can
    name a minimum of 25, you may consider
    yourself a cultivated person, good luck.
