    Having Lots of Kids Helps to Live Longer

    A young, trim farmer with four or more children: According to a new study, that's the ideal profile for American men hoping to reach 100 years of age.


    "We were surprised that having more than three children is beneficial to longevity -- based on previous studies by other authors, and common sense, quite the opposite could be expected," said study co-author Leonid Gavrilov, who conducted the study with his wife, Natalia Gavrilova, both of the University of Chicago's Center on Aging.

    Two is the limit for me. Maybe the act of trying to get more children helps with longevity as well?

    Re: Having Lots of Kids Helps to Live Longer

    hmmm, my grandfather had 9 kids, and only lived into his mid 70s. I guess he would be considered an "outlier" in this study...


    I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

    I am pretty sure Fisher Price and Pampers sponsored this study.

    Pat Robertson and James Dobson probably also had a say in things as well.....

    SWEET! Let's do our part to overpopulate the world!!!


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Better get on the stick. I think you can fix this problem. Just marry into a foursome family. Move back the sands of time.
