Quick Hits: Now with Child

Howdy kids!

I've been dealing with way too much and haven't had the time or inclination to blog, but I wanted to make sure everyone knew I was still sucking air by posting a couple of Quick Hits.

Bringing Up Baby

File this in the "I'm not Surprised" file. Bristol Palin is now a single mom after she broke up with the father of her baby. I guess teenage hockey players don't make the best fathers after all. I bet he plays forward...all shooting and scoring but no defense.

No one should be surprised. According to a quote in a Chicago Tribune story from Bill Albert, chief program officer for the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy, less than 8 percent of teen mothers marry the father of their child within a year of the child's birth.


Teenage boys are whores. Walking talking hormones with perpetual erections. Nature meant it that way.

The sooner we own up to the fact that teenage boys will say and do nearly anything to get some trim, the sooner we will agree with Bristol Palin herself who said that teaching teens abstinence is "not realistic at all."

Just Because You Can...

Octomom. I....well....hell. I don't know what to say except why didn't someone stop her.

Octuplets' mother says she's buying larger home

No shit.

You can try all you want to but in the end they are going to do what they want to do. It's unfortunate but it is the truth.

I really think Mommy just made them stay together for the campaign.

Obviously if the boy had defense he would not be a father today.

I guess I was lucky, in a sense, that I was a Star-Trek-Star-Wars-loving-king-sized nerd in high school and therefore didn't end up fathering a child at a ridiculous age.

You know...and I'm not bragging, I'm just stating fact...I started having sex when I was 16. But my father and mother made sure that I knew what a condom was and where and how to get them. I had a friend who wasn't so lucky. His parents were bible thumping Lutherans who thought condoms were evil. He was a father by his sophomore year.

I had my first after age thirty.
