    Quoted from jawjaw:

    Who makes up these numbers? I have 3 kids almost teenagers and they are not that expensive. If you buy them expensive things, cars, private school, and fancy college then yeah. I've spent way more on pinball than I have on them in the past few years that's for sure.

    Really? Add it up....ALL the food, clothing, medical bills, trips, sports....etc.... Over 18 YEARS it adds up. I would bet $280,000 is a low average. No private schools or Porches either.

    I'm going to feel so rich once the kids are out of college! Except for that damn retirement savings thing.........and taxes.......and medical coverage!

    Quoted from vid1900:

    You've got to think these things through.
    If you get fixed, you lose $1100 a month in sperm bank money.

    I can't imagine all sperm is equally valuable?
