Adios, Umbilicus

Like one of the Spartan warriors at Thermopylae, Felix tore off the last vestige of his time in the womb, the knotty stub of his umbilical cord, laughing as he did so and shouting "I'm a free man!" Alright, alright, so it dried up like a raisin and fell out on its own and I'm not even sure that Felix noticed, but it was still pretty cool. Yes, what you see below is an umbilical cord, or at least what's left of it. I assure you the just born version was much more exciting.
