Technology and birth (Monty Python)
One of the things i am able to do with my stats, is to find out where people have come to my blog from. I found today that quite a few recent entries have come from a German blog. I wish I could read this blog as it looks really interesting in my very limited understanding of that language. However one thing I have no difficulty understanding is this video which i found on her blog. As always Monty Python have taken a real situation and blown it up into ridiculous and hysterical proportions. somehow this one, while funny, also makes me feel quite uncomfortable. The machines and the institution are the most important aspects of birth, the woman barely matters at all. I wonder if it is quite as ridiculous now as it was when it was first made, probably about 30 years ago.
