I Know It Wasn't Unusual for Most of Human History, But . . .

(via Defamer)

This headline, Whale Rider's Keisha Castle-Hughes Expecting, just ain't right.

UPDATE: This Scott Adams post isn't entirely unrelated (though digresses into areas I'm not as comfortable with, and his math is waaaay off).

Also, this Ken Jennings post isn't entirely unrelated, also. Teens are still doing what teens have done for all existence (at least human existence), but the disadvantages to indulging that aspect of our human nature so early is readily evident.
