"It is true, and thus the question of whether it is sad or happy has no meaning whatever."

Doctors in Islamabad have unsuccessfully removed not one but two (!) vestigial fetuses from a two month-old girl (pics). It's estimated that fetus-in-fetu - where twins (or in this case, triplets) are conceived, but one dies and is absorbed into the other - happen in about 1 per 500,000 births. Must be even rarer for it triplets.

As cool as it is, it does remind me of a rather poor Steven King book.
