Because they took on their father's first initial , I took on along with my sister my dads initials.

That would have been sort of cool.

Anybody else watching Duggars do Scotland right now?

Who needs sleep when we've got love?
Who needs keys when we've got clubs?
Who needs please when we've got guns?
Who needs peace when we've gone above?

The next one is probably going to be mentally retarded, not that that would stop her from having a 21st.

I saw this and thought it belonged in the perv thread


Anyways, no, I'm watching Sister Wives, because it's my lifetime goal to be a reverse polygamist and have 21 kids, one ahead of the Duggars.

I noticed it on Netflix, been debating if I want to try to watch it or not.

Did you write the book of love, and do you have faith in God above,
If the Bible tells you so? Do you believe in rock Ân roll,
Can music save your mortal soul, And can you teach me how to dance real slow?

Hmm. I may watch some of it now.

My problem with the Duggars is that I work in a daycare and legally, we would not be allowed to have that many children of such a young age, so why should they be able to? Because they use the older children (especially the girls) as babysitters, which is unfair. They've shown photos of Michelle Duggar cheerleading and enjoying her own youth, and yet her daughters don't get to.

Sister Wives, or the Duggars? Sister Wives is a good show, I don't watch the Duggars' show (I guess it's called 20 and counting now? Or is it still 19 and counting?)

The Duggars is on Netflix too. It's the old show though. It's called 17 and Counting. I found it sort of annoying. I don't think I'll watch anymore.

It's still 19 and counting according to the program guide on my TV, but if they think life starts at conception, well then perhaps it should be updated already. Are any of the existing 19 multiple births?

Two sets of twins.

I seriously wonder how she doesn't totally wreck her s**t. It's not healthy to have back to back pregnancies without adequate recovery time. It just keeps bringing to mind those poor puppy mill breeding females who just pop out puppies until they are all worn out.

I once was taking care of a new mom after a c-section (7th child), and the surgeon told me that her uterine wall was so paper-thin, he could see the baby's face as clear as day through it before he cut. Crazy stuff.

I agree with this. Also I think the earth is becoming overpopulated so noone should create more than their fair share of children.

This family reminds me of a girl that lived in the same city as me (at the time) that was pregnant with eight kids at one time! And I think she already had six. Her uterine wall probably looks awful.

I wasn't sure, I didn't have a tv or computer at the time because I was in the middle of moving, but I just remember I was in seventh grade and my science teacher was telling us all this gross stuff about her.

Yeah, she went to the church next to my local grocery store (a Target). We made so much fun of her in science because we were in our reproductive unit of the course. . when I came over to this city noone knew who she was so I wasn't sure if she was publicized or not, but it could just be that the people I ask didn pay attention in class and were sheltered or something.

Lol, I am sure you are right, and I hope she does not have any more babies!

Why are you comparing octomom to the Duggars? The Duggars only had two sets of multiples that are twins, the rest was single births.

I think Michelle had a C-section zipper installed last time to better facilitate God's natural plan.

Because they're easily comparable, having more kids than the average family and more than they can take care of. Both put themselves in the public eye.
