Turkey baster

I’ve often been advised to learn something new everyday.  And I try.

Today’s bit of knowledge was especially interesting. 

I learned that artificial insemination via an anonymous sperm donor can be done from the confines of one’s own home, with the use of a turkey-baster in the words of one doctor. 

More on this when I have more facts, but apparently the process involves a fairly large containment chamber, an ample supply of liquid nitrogen, a hot plate and a Sears catalog of genetic markers.

This is sure to find its way into a book someday soon.
