18. I've talked to kids from families with 6 siblings who lament
...the fact that they never had a mother...she was always busy with the latest kid. My friend attributes all of the in-fighting and feuds among the kids to the fact that there was not enough parental time to devote to six children. As one of three, I can see how that happens. I felt really sorry for an 80-year-old man from Arkansas who was one of 11 and always wanted attention from parents who had too many children to give enough individual attention to each.

This mother needs to eat tons of fish between kids to ensure that they have adequate brain power. Unfortunately, with coal-power plants sending mercury (becomes methy-mercury) into our waterways and oceans where it it consumed by plankton and moves up the foodchain, she'd poison her kids with mercury.
