    Are you sure this isn't some elaborate hoax? I clicked on the "CNN news story" and found out that the page was hosted on the malepregnancy website!

    I dunno guys, smells fishy to me

    It still kinda feels wrong. Why would they host a replica of the CNN page on their servers though? Even the ads are hosted by malepregnancy.com. Strange... Whoever did this page is fairly knowledgeable though, the medical terms and theory sound about right. :confused: :confused: :confused:

    It has to be crap. The USA today thing is just a hotsite, not an article, the CNN article has no date on it, anywhere. They dont mention the due date of the guy, and dont you think you would have ACTUALLY heard about this someplace? The media would love this sort of thing. Instead you find it on an obscure website? I would seriously, seriously doubt this is true.

    Also, yahoo link is "strange site of the day", not "factual pregnancy of a man of the day"

    And has anyone ACTUALLY seen time magazine with that cover?

    Has anyone actually become a father here? What Men have to o through for their spuces is enough with out having to actually be pregnant!

    Plus God knew we would bitch and moan about it all the time so he choose women to have the kids. I guess he knew we were bastards

    Check out the rest of their site. They offer such medical miracles as designer babies and transgenetic mice with human intelligence. :eek: :eek:

    The talking mouse page is hilarious!! You can chat with the mouse...except that his answers are canned. I asked him, "Whats up?" He responded, "Chillin'..."

    Men are pregnant??? Talking mice that can program in Java??? (Just as Clyven, he'll tell you.)

    What a country!

    Just more proof that it's a fake. damn fake. There have been no way to create a transgenic talking mouse. I've been working with some this summer and i've glanced at the abstracts on pubmed. no mention of it there at all. It's all B$. Researchers have recently discovered the gene that gives us such good control of our mouth muscles tho, but that's it.

    Im not saying that it is real, but just looking at the medical info makes it sound real. Then again I am no doctor....

    That is insane though. :confused:

    There is no real medical info. I've reread everything and it's just B$. They never go into specifics. Everything they had there is pretty much just paraphrased material from some high-school biology textbook. Total junk. Talking mice and designer babies? Gimme a break!

    Its a very slick site - a lot of people will be taken in. I wouldn't be surprised if it wasn't payed for by The Star or other supermarket weekly magazine/rumor paper.

    Pretty damn funny, though.
