    I'm still on the fence about spawning. In some ways it looks like fun, but usually I think Cronus got it right the first 5 times.

    33 most likely. Wife is 36. I think we're approaching the upper end of Prime Birthing Years or something.

    Neither one of us has committed our opinion to the whole thing, one way or the other. We're pretty childish as it is.

    Cant possibly understand why someone would want to do that to themselves. talk about being tied down... it is basically the end of your life.

    Yeah but remember that chicks can just get that lightbulb thing out of the blue sometimes. You could be cruising along all happy for years and then boom WE NEED A BABY RIGHT NOW!!! Depends on the girl of course, but I've seen that happen a number of times. I once had a friend tell me "my biological clock is ticking" and she was 22. Yep, they got married, had a kid, and are now long since divorced. Yippee.

    I think children are ugly. But if wifey got pregnant, I'm sure I'd enjoy that ride just fine. We're like, open-minded or something. Regarding that aspect of life at least. But hey, one of us might go WE NEED A BABY RIGHT NOW!!! and things could change. We're pretty content not having to deal with any of that stuff right now, personally I like staying out until 4am and going off on vacation at the drop of a hat.

    I've seen friends get locked into lifestyles they don't enjoy, personally I don't think I'd ever get like that. But I can't blame the wife/kid/job since they all signed up for Accepted Existence and hey, that's their choice and they have to love/hate it accordingly. I enjoy my free time far too much to give it to someone else. Not that I wouldn't do it for a loved one, but I'm currently not volunteering it away either.

    Or like, some junk. WTF do I know about babies?

    you can't understand until you have one of course ... like anything else in life.

    but yeah, it you don't have the feelings to raise a kid ... by all means focus on something else.

    I was going to comment on this yesterday but my computer if finally dying on me

    finally got it working again...uhhh...well, anyway I was going to say something along these lines: there's nothing like having a few little monkeys around that share your DNA. I don't really feel like going into right now - too lazy. What lurchy said is correct - it's not really something you can relate to until you do it...and then it's too late :lol:
    I feel like saying this though - a fair warning - doing things like staying out until 0400, well, you're done with that. And to the Adrian: you're likely done playing bass as you know it. Unless you make a living playing music, it's time to call it a day and say you had a good run of it. Loads of other things go by the wayside - things that would never occur to you. Like working in the yard? You're done. Have an old project car you've been trying to restore? Sell it. Enjoy doing dangerous things that could likely render you a paraplegic? Have fun paying for the increase in life insurance premiums.
    Basically, if you are going to have children, do so before the chances of birth defects spiral out of control (note to Adrian - at 36 the wife is already heading down the wrong end of the curve) and be prepared to drastically alter your lifestyle. Thing is, you'll want to do so. Sure, there will be many times when you'll be like

    CAN I READ A FUCKING BOOK IN PEACE???

    but most of the time, you won't even want to because watching what your kids are doing is far more interesting.

    Having kids rules. I have friends who aren't going to and that's cool and I have friends who can't and that sucks but I personally cannot fathom being 45 years old and NOT being able to go to high school soccer games to watch them play (or what-have-you).

    ok, that's it.
    Now go procreate.
