I love it when people come on his show to prove or disprove paternity. There is always a guy or two on there who keep pointing out all they ways that these children do not resemble them. They all seem to live in a world where children are little clones of their fathers. They act all tuff until the test results are read, and then they feel stupid, or vindicated.
I read an interesting article in either Glamour or Cosmo (figuring out which would require getting off the couch, and I am not willing to do that just now) about how babies do look more like their fathers at birth. It is supposedly an evolutionary tactic to encourage new father’s to bond with their children from birth. Perhaps this is why. They are avoiding bonding.
I once heard a guy argue that the baby (a newborn) wasn’t his because it had blue eyes and his were brown. This ignores that fact that most babies don’t develop eye color until they are about a month or so old. It also ignores the fact that a brown eyed individual can also carry a blue eyed recessive gene. Yes, even if that individual is black.
Some of the guys will talk about how all their other children look like them. They’ll talk about their four or five other children. I avoid guys with one kid, but if he has that many and isn’t with any of their mothers, that is a gigantic warning sign. As large as a billboard. It floats above their heads… “Not a Good Idea”. I just want to educate them about why not to or why to date someone.
But then I remember, I don’t make such great chioces, either, even if they don’t have kids. But then, I don’t have their kids, nor am I going to start. At least I can rest assured I am doing that right. In the mean time, is it a bad idea to go out with someone who asked you out while holding a really big knife?
