Fetal Educator Strap

In the old days an "educator strap" was something teachers applied to a student's backside. (When I was a kid, some of my teacher's had canes which they used quite liberally, but I think that may be illegal now.)

However, this "fetal educator strap" (patent no. 6840775) is a learning system for fetuses while in utero:

More particularly, this invention pertains to a system for moving sound transmitters to positions most properly aligned with an unborn baby's ears.

I guess it's never too early to hook the kids on learning!

Alex, my condolences to you for having to be raised up in an era where child abuse by educators wasn't criminalized. Of course I don't remember anything about students shooting up other students either but hay! An enlightened era has it's ups and downs.

That woman has no nipples. How will she breastfeed?

Forget the nipples, her stomach is so stretched out it's transparent! 🐛

I'd like to know what she is doing with her right hand. I would have thought she would be attending to a wedgie but she's not wearing anything.

my hubby used to talk to my tummy while i was pregnant all the time. when our daughter was born the nurse laid her on a table to assess her for the apgar score and when my husband spoke she turned over towards his voice. the nurse said she had never seen a brand new baby do that before. and my niece would always go to sleep right away if my sister played the music she used to listen to in the evenings when she was pregnant. there is something to the idea.

If I had known then what I know now...I would have played a recording of the times tables to my wife's belly when she would knocked up for my son.

My soon would react to Linkin Park! He still loves music like that and he's now 4. There may be a bit to it all.

Any of us who lived at any time during the hair metal era have a fear of hair gel and spandex. :sick:
Funny how guys thought they were so tough but looked like drag queen rejects. Give me combat boots, jeans, black t-shirt and a biker jacket any day.
