Physiology is such a fascinating branch of biology in the first place, but we take a particularly keen interest in reproduction.
Look, if you can’t take making babies seriously, then you clearly are not prepared for adulthood. It borders on impossible to look at an infant of any species, size up its mother, finally look downward to ponder the cavity whence that baby emerged, and finally ask Mommy Dearest, “That miniature clone came out of you? How are you still standing?!”
That just covers our amazement at the resilience of human tissue. After a long look at these 16 x-rays of various pregnant animals from a seahorse to an actual horse and some consideration of just what our own mothers shoved out of an expandable orifice normally about the circumference of a dime and several inches deep, we find ourselves compelled to take her much more seriously the next time she announces, “I brought you into this world, and I can take you out of it!” Think very carefully about that the next time you even think about turning her thermostat the length of an ant’s dongle to the left while home for the holidays.
That excruciating Herculean labor more than justifies her going full-Dexter when her offspring lack the gratitude for the gift of life to simply not drive up her light bill.
