Mom was telling me about this yesterday...interesting, but not surprising.
Here's the article...

Ever since the sports thread wars I have sensed a special connection between [edit] & Wile. Like the connection oil has to water. I almost can't speak of it. Wait....my eyes are misting. ~asq
Let’s just stay together and tell the world to kiss our ass. ~P

    So recent scientific studies now show that I am not a selfish, spoiled freak of nature? Good to know. I've spent almost 35 years worrying but now I can breathe easy.

    What is your poll question? Do you have siblings? Did you want siblings? Do your kids have siblings? Do you think other people should have siblings? What are you asking exactly.

    Geeky is my hero. She's the true badass. The badass who doesn't even need to be a badass. There aren't enough O's in cool to describe her.

    What is the point of a study like that? It seems to be restating the obvious.

    I did like the line about parenting being more important than number of siblings. That got a big, "No ****, sherlock" from me.

    I beg to differ. :wink:

    I think the perfect number of children depends on the couple. If a couple decides one child is best for them, then I vote that couple should only have one.

    My thoughts as well.
