Your children

Why don't you people adopt some kids instead. Lots of kids in the world without parents.

Probably because part of the massive egotrip of having a kid is seeing traces of your genes in the child. Once the kid has grown up, moved out and distanced from the parents, the only link is the parents part of the dna and perhaps the last name.

Eh. I can get behind bashing Adok, but having children is a terrible thing to do.

Indeed, to me it is the ultimate assault to reproduce and assume that the offspring will enjoy spending 18 years in the company of the parents, and a lifetime in this world.

Childfree is the best way to be - no hassle then.

Better still, get a cat or a dog. They will give you much more love than a kid would - with less than half the shit that kids can be.

Hmm, I wonder how much shit a dog produces compared to a similarly sized child.

dnes: i would say it's probably about equal. difference is with a dog you can train them not to shit all over themselves a LOT quicker. I mean, for how long do children shit their pants, 1 - 2 years? I trained my 2 month old puppy in less than 4-5 weeks.
i'm not having a baby until they start selling Dog-Children.

and your children will be next!
I believe Adok meant "You're children".

"Your"!="You're"! Learn the difference, Adok!
