You never know what kind of bizarre stuff you’ll run into bumping around the net for link bait. And no matter how many times I tell myself this fact, I am always stunned when it happens; somebody out there ups the ante.
That’s exactly what happened today when I found a parentdish.com blog about Ragnar Bengtsson, a 26-year-old man in Sweden who is committed to breast-feeding his next baby. To that end, he regularly uses a breast pump to “stimulate lactation” at 3-hour intervals throughout his day. An endocrinologist cited by the blog says that the guy might be able to actually produce something. By the time I’d gotten this far reading about Ragnar, the self-described “milkman,” I did what no dude should probably ever have to do. I googled “male lactation.”
Our buddies Joystiq have a blurb up about a father-son team that is building a replica of Samus Aran’s Varia Suit from Metroid. Complete with lights and sounds, this is definitely a kick-ass father-son project. The eleven year old boy, Joseph DeRose, plans on wearing the suit for Halloween this year.
