I believe German Shepherds were referred to as “police dogs” for the same reason.

Duh, that's probably also why they're called Alsatians in the UK.

TIL that the Christmas standard "Do You Hear What I Hear" was written in 1962 as a plea for peace during the Cuban Missile Crisis.

the youngest person to ever give birth was 5 years old https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lina_Medina

took me a moment to realize that the only way this could've happened, in addition to the extremely accelerated puberty condition, is that she had to have been abused to even get pregnant. Super sad but she's still alive at 87 which I find incredible

What are the chances you have the worst case of accelerated puberty in history AND get raped? Dang.

And she outlived the kid, who died of cancer at 40.

People are terrible.

Make sure you don't click on the "precocious puberty" Wiki link in that article. Thankfully I'm WFH as there was a nude picture of a young girl that went through puberty early. Scientific obviously and doesn't offend my sensibilities but might be awkward to explain at work :lol:

The song "Twilight Zone" by Golden Earring was inspired by the Jason Bourne books.
