Some facebook friends have kids, and some older friends who are not my age (obv) have kids. But among my direct age group, of not distant-but-facebook friends, none have any.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Pronunciation Guide

i have a good number of "friends" who have kids

of my "good friends," i can only think of 3 who have kids and 1 of those was unplanned (but much celebrated, because his wife-to-be was supposed to be barren... and then they found out that she wasnt when she got pregnant haha)

Good lord this. I know a couple of guys who are just lazy and don't have accounts and will just look at stuff with their wives accounts, which is bad enough, but the JOE&JANE DOE accounts are just weird.

I think there's a very big difference betwen one part of the couple not having an account and a couple sharing an account

Or maybe I'm just drastically underestimating how lacking in shame and self preservation instincts people can be.
this is exactly what I thought after reading it yesterday. exactly.

I have one really good friend who is married,, pretty much all the others are single (even the ones in long term relationships) and I am 25. Although I do have 1 friend who has a like 6 year old daughter and isnt married and another friend who just got married and the girl had a 5 year old or so.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Pronunciation Guide

The guy with a 6 year old daughter had it when we were 18 and had been really close, but that more or less ended our relationship as he was busy trying to start a life with a girl who right after popping out a kid got a job at a strip club as a "hostess". The girl ditched a couple years later and he is anchored down hard.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Pronunciation Guide

One benefit of starting a family in your mid-thirties I think is that it will kind of force you to remain young longer. I kinda like that. My parents had 4 kids and thus were raising kids from 1976-2011. 35 god damn years of parenting (having between 1-4 kids in the house). That is insane. They are now 62 and 59 and in 2011 when my sister moved out I could tell the empty nest thing was hitting them hard. They probably feel like they are just waiting to die now.

If you were done having 2-3 kids by like age 28 then they're pretty much out of the house by they time you are like 48. I mean I guess that's cool too but I think there are positives and negatives and obviously you need to think about what you value now and 20 years from now.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Pronunciation Guide

I'm 32 now (wife is 30), and have one four month old boy.

In regards to the age factor for parents; I think it's a better thing parents are generally starting at a later age now (compared to our parents time). We're more prepared at ~30 than ~20 to be a (better) parent. I feel like you should know yourself first before you start raising kids, and from a personal standpoint, the growth from say ~19-25 is quite large (IMO).

My theory is, people stop growing and learning and evolving once they have kids. So a 20 year old dad, will grow up to be a 50 year old dad, but will still have his (unpolished) 20 year old self tendencies.

For people stuck in snowy conditions, but still need their golf fix:
http://www.back-nine.ca/
(Digital Indoor Golf)

Pretty cool. Book a private room for 8 @$50/hr. Have a waitress serving you beers all day and get your golf on.

It's not the same, takes some adjusting to, the putting part sucks...but you can play a **** load of courses around the world and you never lose any balls.

Burned through the box set with my family over Christmas. Really enjoyed it. Carcetti is one of the leads.

29. Have been to 5ish weddings a year for several years in a row now but none of them have kids. most of my friends engaged or married. over half anyway

out of my 10-15 closest friends only 2 have kids and one of them is 40 and didnt have them til 33.

I think mid 30s is totally standard now, especially in big cities

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Pronunciation Guide

I am 25 and of my ~30 close friends only 3 are married (none currently engaged) and none have kids. About half of the remaining ones are single and I can think of 5 that are in multi-year relationships.
