oh shit I’m ugly and have no life. Bugger. I might as well just give up now.

Is there any other advice you would like to give me? I’m very open to constructive criticism…

According to ABS data released in August, the average for Woden district is 1.4 but for Chifley is 1.9. Obviously the TV reception in Chifley is not so great. But a good argument to maintain our public school.

Pandy beat me to it – the Tassie stats are flawed ’cause they’re based on a head count!

The ACT count on the other hand is disapinting – although it’s not for the want of trying!

“I’d be interested to see the average age at which Tassie vs Canberra women have their first kid. “

And I would be interested to see the average age at which Tassie vs Canberra women get their first root.

And Mr Evil – the wrong hole? The mouth is NOT the wrong hole!

I think because we live in Canberra we see the Federal politicians quite often. Anyone who has seen Peter Costello up close, is not going to have a baby for him.

A little cold, maybe Ralph – but probably not too far wide of the mark.

I’d say it’s one of a number of reasons. I’d be interested to see the average age at which Tassie vs Canberra women have their first kid.

that idea has been kicking around for years. A bit of merit in it.

Too many opinionated bints in this town. Blokes don’t like that.

However, the primary beneficiaries of feminism have been high status males. As female status has risen, the pool of men who come up to standard has shrunk increasing competition for high status males. At the same time new female freedoms have created new opportunities for illicit dalliances with the few males with sufficient status to interest them.

In economic terms, for high status males, the effective supply of substitute products has gone down while the effective supply of women in their immediate zones of activity has gone up.

So in simple terms, more educated sheilas price themselves out of the man market.

Yeah Sonic and Barr are doing their best to screw us over.

The stats are based on mothers giving birth HERE – but how many people come here with their kids in tow and aren’t on the stats? Personally, I have three children, none of which were born here therefore not reflected in these stats. I like many other Canberrans move away then return with children, as ‘Canberra’s a great place to raise your kids’ – or was . . .

It’s one of those strange things. More highly educated women breed less. Weird, innit?

It is all those two heads in Tassie.

What I want to knoww which state/territory puts out the most. That is way more important research.

No, I wasn’t aware of the “fagg” comment until after I’d posted that.

Anyway, I’ve got to go now, put my cardigan on and water my azaleas and african violets. 🙂

Was that a cross reference to Chris calling you a “fagg”, Mr Evil.

probably slanted stats caused by 3rd generations of tassie boganettes having their first pregnancy at age 16 as they plot their lifestyle of welfare in the housing dept ghettos

or maybe there is an abundance of imeldas in canberra with three litre orgasmic contraceptive flushings

Another reason could be because Canberra men keep sticking it in the wrong hole?

Pity I’m too lazy to go back packing through the Tassie country side 🙁

I’d say Mr Evil has hit the nail on the head.

Head….hmmm…I’ll leave that one alone.

Maybe it’s because we don’t have so many bogans here having babies at 16?

I wonder if it has got to do with the number of wankers there are in this city… perhaps tassies fertility has got to do with the fact that they are less concerned about family members getting each other preggers…

I’m a bit worried about those Tasmanians reproducing too much….
