body parts

  • Aries:I am the head. I am your sense of smell, taste, sight, and sound. Life wouldn’t be so fun without me.
  • Taurus:Well, I’m the neck. You can’t do much with a broken neck.
  • Gemini:And I am the arms, your hands, your fingers. Without me, there would be no writing, painting, music, or loving.
  • Cancer:I am the breasts and stomach. It’s hard to conceive and care for a child without me, so there goes the entire human race.
  • Leo:I am the spine and heart. You can exist as spineless or heartless, but everyone will hate you for it.
  • Virgo:So? I am the kidneys, liver, and stomach. I keep your body from becoming a toxic wasteland.
  • Libra:I am the hips. I keep things balanced, but I break easily because I’m fragile and difficult to replace.
  • Scorpio:I am the genitals. Need I say more?
  • Sagittarius:I am the thighs. I’ll get you to where you’re going, and I’ll jiggle every step of the way.
  • Capricorn:I am the knees. I am constantly in pain
  • Aquarius:I am the ankles. Fragile but everyone insists putting the weight of the world on me.
  • Pisces:I am the feet. Without me, there would be one less weird fetish in the world. Also I occasionally smell bad

“Having identified as a gay man most of my adult life, the last few years I have realized that both my sexuality and gender are fluid. This has been so liberating for me because I never fit into the binary of man/woman or gay/straight anyway.

I feel more comfortable existing in the grey area and I encourage anyone who feels like the status quo doesn’t represent them to join me. You may feel broken or separate but when you look through a kaleidoscope, suddenly all of those broken bits and pieces create a beautiful image.”

Human body parts grown in a lab

In a north London hospital, scientists are growing noses, ears and blood vessels in the laboratory in a bold attempt to make body parts using stem cells.

It is among several labs around the world, including in the U.S., that are working on the futuristic idea of growing custom-made organs in the lab.

While only a handful of patients have received the British lab-made organs so far— including tear ducts, blood vessels and windpipes — researchers hope they will soon be able to transplant more types of body parts into patients, including what would be the world’s first nose made partly from stem cells.
