Some day in the not too distant future: Mommy, Daddy, where do babies come from? Father: Well child, babies are made from parts of their mommy and daddy. You have parts from mommy and daddy in you because we got together at a special time and did some special things to make you. And because we came from our mommies and daddies, you have parts from your grandparents in you too; and parts from their parents and their parents. Mother: That's right. Before you were born, your father went to the Digikey website and bought a development board that I turned into your brain.

It was only a few weeks after my conversation with my dad that my parents sad me down and said "You're going to have a little brother or sister" Outside my head I was giving a brave smile -- inside my head klaxons were sounding, warning lights were flashing, and I heard my (internal) voice screaming "What? You're STILL doing IT???"
