The Pregnancy Rock in Okinawa (Photo) It's a Myth I Hope

In this photo the big granite block has inscriptions in Japanese telling you about the round stone chained to a pedestal on the right.  It says that if a woman lifts the stone she'll soon be pregnant.

If the stone feels heavy, it'll be a baby boy.  If it's not heavy, the baby will be a girl.  Three of us were in this cave on Ie Shima, the Island we visited in Okinawa for the Easter Lily Festival back in April 2011.

There was myself, Ryukyu Rusty and his girl.  We tried to get a photo of her picking up the rock, just for a joke, because she does have these, um, SHAPLEY ARMS but, it was like "No way, Dudes".

So, I picked the thing up just for the heck of it.  It doesn't make your pants fall down, or anything like that.

Just, it seems kinda funny.  I've been having a lot of cravings for chocolate, lately.

That pregnacy rock thing, I hope it's just a myth.  I've checked everywhere, even FORBES MAGAZINE and they don't say anything about picking up rocks getting people pregnant !
