It seems that we tropers will become an endangered specie soon.
Then again, geekinessis not passed by blood but by example, and quite a few of us are willing to teach the younger generation
Yes, I'd like to have a bunch of them.
Rott will make up for the kids the rest of us won't have.
That thought...is vaguely disturbing.
I'm too starstruck by mental images of children dressed up in 1800s fashion to think about any other ramifications.
I'd prefer that nobody "make up for" the kids that I won't be having, thank you.
Oh but Ivy they are only trying to help. :P
It is ok we can go to complete artificial means of human reproduction as I build my armywe become more advanced.
I know the idea and some study interest in artificial wombs and other artificial methods of procreation.

Uterine replicators for all!
I'm still reading that as "uterine velociraptors".
A superior interpretation, no doubt.
Wow, looks like a lot of negativity in the thread.
As for me, having children is one of the highest priority long-term goals I have for my lifetime. I think I'd have a fair bit to offer as a parent. Of course it's certainly not something I worry about now. I have my education, then career to be concerned with.
Almost certainly never.

I'd like to think I've had my share, already. Although my oldest is wanting a baby brother, for some odd reason. The missus would like more, but I'm content with the two that we have now.
And not to worry, my oldest is geeky enough that I shall pass the mantle of geek-hood to her.

Yup. Mostly just a question of when- my recently-minted (and wonderful) wife has some health issues that mean we'll have to approach it with some care, but there's likely some baby chameleons to come in the next few years. How I'll handle the 'baby' end of things, I have no idea, though. While I quite like kids, I just don't do as well with pre-verbal people.
^^From what I understand, it's when they're verbal and hormonal that the desire to gouge out your eyes comes.
Considering fairly recent developments with me and the missus, it's a damn Good thing that I do...
It seems to depend on my mood or something. Most of the time I'm like "HAHA NO", but occasionally I am like "YES. WEISS AND I MUST HAVE LITTLE ONES".
Regardless I damn sure won't be having any for a good long time.
I am legitimately frightened of children. When one of those creepy-semi-people comes into a room, I try to leave as quickly as possible. No children for me.
Congratulations. I look forward to hearing more about little King Justice (or little Justice Friday).
Justice Friday sounds like the best day of the week EVER!
I've been thinking recently that when I'm a lot (I mean a lot) older I'd like to adopt an older kid, or maybe be involved in a foster program. It sounds really difficult but maybe worth a try. Will they let you if you're single?
