I took a quiz called "Angelman Syndrome".
http://www.funtrivia.com/quizdetails.cfm?id=131794

It's in Sci / Tech: Health and Human Biology: Reproduction and Genetics. But the picture that accompanies the quiz is an Army tank, like from WWII. I am not sure what this says about the FunTrivia appproach to reproduction, or perhaps another picture was meant to be here?

Most definitely an accidental wrong upload. That picture is assigned to category 380 (which is Reproduction and Genetics), but doesn't fit there. I tried some variants of the category number but couldn't find out what it was actually meant for.

Terry, can you remove that one so the parent category will apply?

This has been brought up before and for whatever reason, the picture remained.

I think I like the tank there. Makes me ponder.

Guess Terry just had too much on his plate. Unfortunately it's a new-style category image, so there's no editor setting and he will have to do it himself.

How 'bout a picture of a submarine like the one from "Fantastic Voyage"?

That would be better than a tank sitting in front of an armory.

Why a submarine?
Not really a joking matter guys, Angelman Syndrome is a serious genetic disorder and those children born with it deserve more than silly remarks in my opinion.

For the trivial amongst you, the Scottish crime thriller writer Ian Rankin, who created Rebus, has a son called Kit with Angelman syndrome.
And the actor Colin Farrell's son.
Please find an appropriate image ASAP.

Eh? No need for guilt trips; people were making remarks about funtrivia, not about children with Angelman Syndrome.

I'm sure the jokes were directed at the category: Reproduction and Genetics, as opposed to Angelman Syndrome.

The submarine in "Fantastic Voyage" is used to battle microscopic human deficiencies.

I was not trying to be funny but suggesting an image that might be more appropriate in battling disease.
