Study Explains Why Pregnant Women Don´t Fall Over

CAMBRIDGE – A hugely pregnant woman teetering along is actually a sublime feat of evolutionary engineering – ages of adaptations have gone into her backbone to make sure she doesn’t fall on her face, scientists say.

Women’s spines have evolved differently from men’s to better carry the weight and awkward proportions of pregnancy, according to research being published today by the journal Nature.

We have always wondered about that….Actually, we thought it more logical if evolution had put the necessary equiptment on her back, like a backpack or papoose, like all intelligent cultures do with babies once they come out. Easier to carry the weight,  sleep and use a computer.

One more piece of evidence that God is a man, and is responsible for other forms of female torture  like high heel shoes and foot bindings.
