I read this article at my sister's house last week and showed my brother-in-law right afterwards. At first, we were both obviously amazed. But after a second or two, we looked at each other and were like, Hmmm... experts don't really know anything, do they?

I mean, you'd think with all the progress with IVF, etc., they'd know it takes 15 minutes for an egg to be released and not a nano-second, right?

(BTW, regarding the picture of the ovary... that's what Picky and Choosy's home looks like.)
