5 Things People Don't Understand About Only Children

http://www.cracked.com/blog/5-things-people-dont-understand-about-only-children/

I see the comments on this article have been reduced to 'YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT IT'S LIKE BEING AN ONLY CHILD' 'I HAVE A MILLION SIBLINGS AND I FEEL ALONE TOO' and 'I'M NOT SPOILT, THE SIBLING HAPPY KIDS I KNEW WERE!'

Seriously, it's become a competition about whether or not it's better to have siblings or not, or people getting shirty about stuff.

Besides, everyone knows clones are the way to go.

LIVING siblings? Ridiculous.

As I cracked open my shell, I prepared to battle my brothers and sisters who were also emerging. The clutch was large, and competition was fierce. But in the end, I was victorious and had the duty and honor to consume my siblings. Their strength lives on in me as is proper.

Man created logic and because of that was superior to it. Logic He gave unto me, but no more. The tool does not describe the designer. More than this I do not choose to say. More than this you have no need to know.

In the article, Mark Hill wrote:But even if my parents haven't come out and said that they wish I had gone to law school instead of taking up mime street fighting (please don't tell them I write Internet comedy, or they'll be even more disappointed)

I wonder if that's fighting mimes in the street, or miming street fights. If it's the first, I don't see why his parents would be disappointed in him; mimes are awful.

This is actually the first thing I thought of when I read that line (though it doesn't exactly depict fighting).

As long as we're debating the most important note of the article, this is a mime street fight.



For me, it's hard being an only child, considering I have six siblings.
