This Mom's Invention Does More Than Help Kids With Disabilities Walk. It Lets Their Spirits Soar

A mother who invented a device to help her child walk is sharing her innovation on a grand scale -- by putting her creation on the market.

Debby Elnatan said the strain of walking her son, Rotem, who has cerebral palsy, inspired her to design a harness that could enhance his mobility.

"Out of my pain and desperation came the idea for the Upsee and I'm delighted to see it come to fruition," the Israeli mother said in a press release.

As seen in the video above, the nearly $500 device works somewhat on the principle of how parents often teach children to dance. But instead of young ones placing their feet on top of someone's shoes, the Upsee places kids' feet beside the grown-ups' feet with specially designed sandals. The children stand facing forward and move as the grown-ups move.

Take a look at the video, it is heart-warming.

Has anyone seen a penis.......

Police in the United Kingdom reportedly shut down part of a busy motorway in Middlesbrough, England, Thursday to search for a man's missing penis.

According to U.K. news outlet Metro, the road was closed off after an unnamed 40-year-old man was found at the side of the road in a "distressed" state. The man's penis had reportedly been cut off.

It is believed that police shut down the motorway in the hopes of finding the man's severed penis, though it is still unclear whether or not the appendage was found.


And just where is Lorena Bobbitt?

The right's poverty plan: shame poor kids and the vaginas that birthed them

The right's poverty plan: shame poor kids and the vaginas that birthed them
Conservatives want to make low-income Americans feel bad about babies and diets to cut birth control and food stamps

So many of life’s problems could be solved, according to conservative provocateur Ann Coulter, if the poor could just learn to keep their knees together until they got married – and if their wealthy and educated counterparts just weren’t afraid to shame them into doing so. These pearls of wisdom, particularly the “shaming is good” part, were greeted with loud applause over the weekend at the Conservative Political Action Conference.

They really are effing bawstards.
