    For sure. I know some of us do it here in the NFL football threads particularly playoffs, but sports is a different ballgame. ;).

    You do realize that already is happening, right?

    As people go up the socioeconomic ladder, the birth rate goes down.

    My one problem with this is that socioeconomic does not = smart necessarily.

    Plenty of smart people on the bottom of the ladder too, and dumb at the top.

    There are risk factors that go up a lot as the mother ages (much past thirty years old is considered to be an 'at risk' pregnancy).

    Also, there are recent studies that seem to suggest that the age of the father may play a role in the risk of autism (i.e. older fathers have more autistic children).

    I'm not looking forward to this pregnancy now that I think about, but as I think about it some more, I don't really care.

    I think a lot of people take television too seriously - I watch it to escape (or to learn, or to laugh) but never to psychoanalyze the characters or pick apart idiosyncracies in the show.

    This is probably why I get bored after the first few posts in the TV show threads more lately - they're almost never ... ah nevermind, I'm bored writing this.

    Reminds me of this gay guy I worked at Kinko's with in the 90's. He was making a delivery and we were looking at the map and I said "oh here you go straight" and he said "i cant I was born this way". From then on when giving a gay man directions I never tell them to "go straight". :p

    The PC term is "go forward" (not "go straight")

    I was told that one many years ago when driving with one of my friends that is gay. I use it now, whether the driver is straight or gay.

    Surely everyone is kidding about this "go straight" business. As a joke it's a groaner; as PC dogma it's ridiculous--and I live in Massachusetts for goodness' sake. I think your gay friends are having a laugh at your expense :p ;)

    Of course, it's kidding, it's a joke, it's fun to get people to laugh in the car with you. :)

    Yeah, but Cam was going forward, just not in a straight line.

    Actually the phrase we use is "forward, never straight" and then we all laugh.
