  • NELL wants to know if these beliefs are correct: a new Sun goes over the sky each day. They pile up behind those hills over there. After they cool down, men go and cut them up into blocks and that's where we get margarine from.

    It's a long time I heard someone about Mentifex. Ah, the memories. Such wonderful times, when trolls were people whose only fault was a mistaken but stubborn idea about artificial intelligence.

    You win the Internet from 1993.

    I can actually think of cases where a maternity test might be useful. When the girl's pregnant isn't one of them.

    Sure it is. What if you'd hired her as a surrogate, supposedly using an embryo from another woman's egg (e.g., yours or your wife's) but you suspect she just got pregnant the normal way?

    Is she paying her doctor $millions not to reveal the scam, or would asking him just be too easy? Or is the child actually hers and HIS... hmm, just ask him if the baby's really yours (yours and your wife's) and if he says yes, just to be sure, do a paternity test in a different clinic (who we'll assume isn't in on the scam, because that would just be ridiculous... actually, take DNA from both her doctor and yourself and have them both tested; don't tell the clinic whose is whose beforehand).

    What? That doesn't make any sense to me as a response to what I wrote. How does asking a doctor a question solve anything here?

    Well, hopefully he'd know whether or not he really implanted the embryo in her uterus. And if so, whose embryo, and in what manner...

    But what if it didn't take and one of hers did? Tricorders aren't quite up to detecting this sort of thing.

    The best part is how it is from two years ago and is still undecided. It's all a bit late now…
