The Girl Who Turned to Bone

Occasionally you come across articles about rare diseases and I often find them captivating. This one is particular is amazingly well written and reads almost like a short story. This is about a rare disease called FOP or Fibrodysplastia Ossificans Progressiva. There have been ~700 confirmed cases in the world.

Apparently the ocean in Pacific Northwest is polluted with caffeine. So now you can just drink seawater instead of starbucks. I can almost visualize all the fish, strung up on coffee, jumping in and out of the water all day long. Their version of bouncing off the wall.
