Remember when MTV played music?. Pepperidge Farm remembers... But, the chances of having a child with Downs Syndrome increase at age 30, so it would seem that having a child between 25 and 30 would be better.

So instead of playing ****** music they should air ****** shows? At least if it's ****** music it's still "Music Television"

What you call ****** shows, other people find entertaining. I'm not saying they should, I'm saying they do and I understand why.

thats what makes it a good tv show

There are those among us who would rather enjoy their 20's.

I didn't say you had to go out and have kids, just pointing out a statistical fact.
#141 to #1 - anon (05/08/2013) [-]
My mom was 33 when she had me. I have mild ADHD, but that's hardly anything compared to down's, and apart from that I have no health issues whatsoever, great hearing, 20/20 vision, no allergies...and most of my friends and the people I know are like that.
User avatar #143 to #141 - justafungi (05/08/2013) [-]
I didn't say every kid born to a person 30+ was going to have Downs Syndrome, just the fact that the chance of it occurring is increased, one of my ex's had a child with Downs Syndrome at 25...
#2 to #1 - anon (05/07/2013) [-]
agreed

I've read that the perfect age for a man's wife at marriage is half his age plus 7

So let's say that they got married, waited a year (because they're so financially stable) and then she got pregnant.

(33-7) * 2 = 52
Not even taking into account the nine months of pregnancy, The guy would be 70 by the time his kid was out of high school.

Want to know what else? I don't mind that MTV doesn't play music videos anymore because I really don't enjoy 95% of popular music anyways.

Where did you come up with the bit about relative ages for husbands and wives? Most of the parents of my friends are around the same age as each other. By that kind of math, I shouldn't be looking to date anyone under thirty and I'm not even finished my undergrad.

I commented this when the content was brand new hahah, good to see content (that ive never seen before) make it to the front page

anyways it's an older type of mentality I believe.....you know from the days of men providing and women running the household

Its in the book - The Man's Book: The Essential Guide For The Modern Man by Thomas Fink page. 45

"The most common rule of thumb for the ideal age of your bride at marriage is 1/2 your age + 7."
it goes on to say, "The formula adjusts for women's comparatively advanced emotional strength and matches the fertile period of a woman (14-45) to that of a man (14-76). Proponents suggest it also reduces the risk of later infidelity on the side of men."
#9 to #2 - angelusprimus (05/07/2013) [-]
dude, that's for calculation how big a difference before its creepy. Not perfect age.
you are 18 so 9+7= 16
25 so 12.5 + 7 = 19.5
User avatar #3 to #2 - justafungi (05/07/2013) [-]
Interestingly enough, one of my coworkers just had a kid, and his dad's wife, who is significantly younger just had a kid, and his dad will be 70 when the kid turns 18.

The average US male life expectancy is around 75 years

I wonder if he misses music on MTV
#74 to #2 - anon (05/07/2013) [-]
"half of his age plus 7"
(33-7) * 2
age 33 with 52 year old wife, genius

i was had when my mother was 40, i am working on a cure for cancer.
#86 to #56 - anon (05/08/2013) [-]
When the p53 gene malfunctions it causes cancer, therefore if you decoded the malfunctioning p53 gene and found out which proteins it produces that would appear on the cell membrane, then you could genetically engineer a virus to find those proteins and insert a functioning p53 gene, stopping the cancer.
User avatar #129 to #86 - lapsushominum (05/08/2013) [-]
Actually, there are numerous 'failsafe' genes that are known that can lead to cancer, and there are probably many more that we aren't even aware of yet.
User avatar #100 to #86 - irishhappyposter (05/08/2013) [-]
or i could take healthy dna from that person, fuse it with the attena viruses, use its shell because of how perfectly shaped it is, and just reset it entirely.
#122 to #100 - qwertfag (05/08/2013) [-]
what about DNA overload?
User avatar #149 to #122 - irishhappyposter (05/08/2013) [-]
it would replace it, reversing ALL mutation. it would spread slowly throughout the body, and stop cancetr boefore it happens, as well as repairing cells that have damaged telomiers, making them live longer, even mabye stopping the cell from regognising the hormone that causes cell death, causing practicly imortal cells, the ultimate desise that could never be cured, made by our own body, it would renew the cell regulary, making it immortal and non mutatable. death of old age and/or mutations would be wiped out. and yes i am aware of the moral outrage and overpopulation, but we can jump that hurdle when we come to it.
#150 to #149 - qwertfag (05/08/2013) [-]
So we just cured cancer, as well as creating immortality.

My mother had me when she was in her 40s I'm healthy.
User avatar #146 to #98 - justafungi (05/08/2013) [-]
Congrats on being healthy, wasn't saying every child would be born with Downs Syndrome, just a higher percentage chance...
User avatar #22 to #1 - basicargentinian (05/07/2013) [-]
I've heard it's not a significant chance untill age 35
#37 to #1 - anon (05/07/2013) [-]
It increases in the 30s, but it is of most concern once the mother is age 40+. The chances of having a baby with down syndrome at age 40 becomes 1 in 100. It is perfectly fine to have a child in early to mid 30s.

Here is why they don't play music videos anymore www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ysyZF-DZFY
#89 to #8 - anon (05/08/2013) [-]
Can someone explain how they make money off **** like teen mom? I get that people watch it... but how is that any more lucrative than a popular music video?
User avatar #148 to #89 - breaken (05/08/2013) [-]
Same as every of piece of commercial media, draw an audience and sell commercials. It is awful cheap crap but people watch it, Pele knows why.
User avatar #97 to #89 - alexdevlin (05/08/2013) [-]
It's explained in the video.. Why bother to spend money showing only a limited amount of artists (Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, etc) if people now a days can go on the internet? The money spent making and showing the music videos were all for the promotion of the CD (in which nobody buys CDs anymore thanks to the interwebs).. and you get the point..

I was playing Guitar Hero 1 the other day, and when the logos appeared it had MTV and under it it said "Music Television". Needless to say I was shocked.

at least now you'll have something to talk about if you ever meet the president
User avatar #27 - efdinthea (05/07/2013) [-]
They don't play music anymore because there isn't an audience for it. You can thank an evolving society and the internet for that.

not only that: she's happily married, has a supportive family and has read literature about being pregnant so she's prepared when she gives birth.

Just to shed some light on the whole down syndrome thing:   
Even though the risk is greater as the mother’s age increases, about 80 percent of babies with Down syndrome are born to women under age 35.

Because of women over 35 don't have as much babies,
You can shed better light and give us the logistics on all ages with down syndrome.
User avatar #41 to #24 - celester (05/07/2013) [-]
that's because more babies are born to women under 35 than over 35

You want to hear about MTV in the '80s. Go listen to Bowling for Soups 1985, you're welcome

all these people whining about their mothers having them when they were older than 30. mine was 35 and im glad so. she was 10 years wiser and was more financially stable by then. sure there's an increased risk of mental defect (luckily i dont have any [that i know of]), so its a matter of preference.
