Should you breastfeed a stranger's baby? Debate starts at 38:04. Fan-favorite guest, Caitlin Hall This week we confront every (?) parent's worst fear: that their child gets sustenance without their help.

She was able to raise enough funds for the surgery so she can finally have sex and live a normal life. And speaking of putting things in boxes, parents destroyed an 800-year-old coffin in a museum by putting their kids inside it for a photo op. There were signs asking people not to touch the artifacts, but the parents were dead-set on the photo.
