Bentley Yoder was born with the odds stacked against him-- born with a brain outside his skull. Bentley's parents, Sierra and Dustin were told by doctors that discovered Bentley's rare condition called cranium bifidum, that Bentley was simply 'incompatible with life.'
Bentley's parents refused to quit on him though, and decided to go through with the pregnancy, 'just to see him before saying goodbye.' To everyone's surprise Bentley came kicking and screaming into this world on time, on October 31, 2015. He went on to develop normally, save for the critical parts of his brain on top his head, and left nearly all doctors at a mere loss for words over how this could be so.
Fast forward four months, and Bentley's parents were actively seeking out the nation's foremost leading authorities on the brain surgery front, with hopes to find a team capable of performing the surgery necessary to relocate parts of Bentley's brain back inside his skull.
They found Dr. John Meara at Boston Children's Hospital, who planned and practiced the pending procedure using 3D-printed models. On May 24th the surgery commenced, and finished with success six hours later.
A month after the surgery Bentley shows all signs of being just fine, but only time will tell whether things like his vision were impaired for the long run.
This is kind of awesome. Redditor Calycae says that two pros bet their very professional careers on the firmly held, and shared belief that 17-year-old Geguri is a plain old cheater in Overwatch. Blizzard reportedly confirmed that Geguri wasn't cheating, and now those two dudes are fresh out of the game..
They just couldn't believe that she's really this good. The young lady's stats are truly astounding. She boasts an 80% win rate, and a KDA of 6.31.
Korean site, Inven, says that much of the suspicion players hold stems from Geguri's ridiculous accuracy. You can watch her in action, in the clip below:
On May 19, baby Zyla strapped into a set of skies (bolted together for safety) and water-skied for over 600 feet. Her parents, both being professional barefoot water skiers and co-owners of the World Barefoot Center in Florida, were possibly the only two parents in the world who could make this sound like a good idea.
Take a look at their Christmas card this year for an idea of this family's passion for the water.

This little girl's name is Jordan and she's demonstrating the end result of a project that she got to design and 3-D print. She and other kids with upper limb differences worked with artists, designers and a prosthetist to come up with bionic "superhero" gear.
The kids also learned how to use 3-D design tools and a designer will be refining and rebuilding Jordan's design to be ready in May.
Quincy Jones was on the Ellen show previously talking about the Kickstarter to fund his comedy special. At the time she presented him with a $10,000 check and simply mentioned that some distributor should pick it up when his special has been recorded.
Clearly, Ellen has done more than that. Jones plans to tape the special at Teragram Ballroom in Los Angeles April 4 and it looks like fans can watch it on HBO when it gets released.
