A black snake, a bit like the one apparently birthed by a Somali woman Photo by John Tann via. A Somali woman has supposedly given birth to a snake. The woman, from the Afgooye district of Mogadishu, was — understandably — said to have been quite shocked after giving birth to the legless reptile, because she was expecting two human twins. Luckily, the snake did not attack her as it left the womb; it was reportedly non-violent, like her new human son. Family Relative Ali Muhammad, who lives in the village outside the capital, told me: "Today I went to visit a new mother who just gave birth to twins.
She was expecting human twins. Instead, she got one boy and one non-violent snake.
Hera also afflicted Lamia with sleeplessness so she would anguish constantly, but Zeus gave her the ability to remove her own eyes. In later traditions and storytelling, the lamiai became a type of phantom, synonymous with the empusai which seduced youths to satisfy their sexual appetite and fed on their flesh afterward. A fabulous biography of Apollonius of Tyana defeating a lamia seductress has inspired the poem Lamia by Keats. The lamia has been ascribed serpentine qualities, which some commentators believe can be firmly traced to mythology from antiquity, and they have found analogues in ancient texts that could be designated as lamiai or lamiae which are part-serpent beings. These include the half-woman, half-snake beasts of the "Libyan myth" told by Dio Chrysostom , and the monster sent to Argos by Apollo to avenge Psamathe Crotopus. In the myth , the Lamia was originally a beautiful woman beloved of Zeus , but after Zeus' jealous wife Hera destroyed all her children, or caused Lamia herself to kill her own offspring,  she became disfigured from the torment, transforming into a terrifying being who hunted and killed the children of others.

In animals , parthenogenesis means development of an embryo from an unfertilized egg cell. In plants parthenogenesis is a component process of apomixis. Parthenogenesis occurs naturally in some plants, some invertebrate animal species including nematodes , water fleas , some scorpions , aphids , some mites, some bees , some Phasmida and parasitic wasps and a few vertebrates such as some fish ,  amphibians , reptiles   and very rarely birds . This type of reproduction has been induced artificially in a few species including fish and amphibians. Normal egg cells form after meiosis and are haploid , with half as many chromosomes as their mother's body cells.
April 05, There are ways to avoid blue balls ya know. Hi there I have been married to a doctor for 16 years, first 10 as an orthopod next 6 as a plastic surgeon and still working towards the dream of a big house to show for all this hard work. Men search the world for women that they can stand to be around with long-term. Should I consider giving up my PhD plans, take up whatever job I can based on my commitments or I should look for somebody with whom my profession is more compatible. If I just assume he won't be home to eat dinner with us, it's a happy surprise when he is. This is tough enough when the kids are babies, but when they're older - teenagers - you'll get to tackle all of the hormone-fueled angst, drama, school difficulties, homework, school activities, and be the scapegoat when the kids get mad at you. Also, love how you describe how God has our backs and we can actually act on the notion of things hoped for that are not seen instead of the quaint pseudo idea that all things are known in advance, step by step, and lead to mortal and eternal bliss. Drinkers tend to rely on drink before they can have fun.
