Google has just revealed a self-driving car!
This prototype has no pedals and no steering wheel. It looks a bit like a Smart Car- there are just two seats and a computer console where you input where you would like to go!

They gave it their best shot, but lucky for us the artists were quite off the mark when it came to the future of infant nurseries. (Is it just me or does that crib look like a spaceship casket? Thanks, but I’ll pass!)

Quick – name a famous shopaholic! I’m immediately thinking of Cher from Clueless, or Carrie Bradshaw, or that movie “Confessions of a Shopaholic,” or one of the many TV shows that include a girl equipping herself with an armful of shopping bags after a breakup or family crisis.

A quick and trusty Merriam-Webster dictionary check defines a … Keep Reading!!!

Monoamniotic twins (“mono mono” twins) are identical twin babies who share the same amniotic sac inside of the uterus. The chance of having a pair of mono mono twins is quite low, at a rate of around 1 in every 10,000 pregnancies.
