    Thought this was interesting:


    "The 11-month-old boy has been named Balaji or Bajrangbali, another name for monkey-faced Lord Hanuman.

    He is reported to have a 4in 'tail' caused by genetic mutations during the development of the foetus.

    Iqbal Qureshi, the child's maternal grandfather, is taking Balaji from temple to temple where people offer money to see the boy.

    Mr Qureshi says the baby has nine spots on his body like Lord Hanuman and showed them to journalists, reports Indian newspaper The Tribune.

    There have been other cases of babies born with tails. A report appeared in The New England Journal of Medicine in 1982 by Dr Fred Ledley.

    His paper entitled 'Evolution and the Human Tail' concerned a baby born with a 2in growth on its back"

    Thats awsome. The only reason he resembles a hindu god is because they have like thousands of gods, everything is basically a god to them.

    so its not an actual tail then, right? i always thought a tail was an extention of the spine...like with a dog, tails are made up of vertebrae. i could be totally off though

    suburban bum.. everything is not a god to them.. be nicer.

    anyway.. yeah they USUALLY remove stuff like that.. i had a friend born with 12 fingers, so they just cut off circulation to 2 of them (his super pinkies) and they died, there werent bones or anything in them though.. same thing with extra toes, etc...

    Damn Jesus, always checking out the competition.

    I wonder if it gets good circulation and all that. I mean the older he gets, I'm sure it's gonna be more panful to cut it off...hmmm i wonder if it will grow too...

    so many questions
    only one Hanuman

    I was certainly not trying to be mean, actually hiduism is my favorite religion.
