When do they find the time to parent with all the partying with porn stars and escorts? If their kids make it to adulthood without being sexually abused, I'll be socked.
So selfish. 65 and 50 and you want to bring another child into this world. The same child who will be parentless teens. At this age, I would adopt.
The kid will live a sheltered rich life.
Oh yay, r5. Another drop in a pool of vapid, entitled celebrity offsprings.
The kid will probably be inheriting Daddy's fortune by the time he's 35. Not exactly someone to feel sorry for.
Talk about being raised with a golden spoon in your mouth.
So, R4, it's okay if an adopted kid loses their parents in their teens?
I think they're doing this so that the one has a sibling. Which I would be in favor, but it doesn't make it right.
Meanwhile, tons of straight women are giving birth in their 40's and trying again in their 50s.
So who cares? I think having a sibling is good to create the family that won't be around in 30 years.
The kids are being raised by nannies anyway - what difference does it make?
Not as big a joke as old fag Tony Randall producing a babe late in life. At least the momma is around since old Tony is rotting in the ground.
the old queen thinks he is going to live forever and is doing the "at least the years I am here will fill this baby's life with joy. Alas, then he'll turn five......"
I had older parents, and while I would not have traded either one of them for the world, I am an orphan at 40 while most of my friends aren't even thinking of their parents aging and dying. I took care of my elderly mother in my mid-thirties and held her hand while she died. Miss her everyday. I wouldn't wish that on anyone else, regardless of how much money they have. Money does not replace love. Oh that it would, lots of people would be much happier.
Elton likes to role play and puts his fat legs in the stirrups and starts pushing out the baby
R13, sorry for your loss. Hope you have someone I'm your life that can help you with your happiness.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
