A placenta is essentially an external battery pack for the fetus before it develops its own internal power generator.

Machines doing work Mon, Feb 22, 2021
I'm a big fan of letting machines do the work.  More than once, someone at work has asked, "But won't that take a lot of time to run all those calculations?"  Yeah, but it's a computer; it doesn't feel pain or get tired.  I'm not the one doing the work; the computer is. 

It's similar with lawn equipment.  I spent over 30 years of my life living in the northeast and shoveling snow.  Then I bought a snow blower, and despite it being kind of expensive, and despite only using it a handful of times per year (or a few dozen or none at all), it's probably the best purchase I've ever made.  And whether it snows a few inches or a few feet, it's pretty much the same for me.  The machine does the work; I don't.  That said, I've never used a lawn machine without breaking a sweat, and I don't know why that is, but I guess that's a topic for another time.
