Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

My child is 6 months old and is eating bananas and prunes. I don't want to be living vicariously through her right now.

No kids, but I certainly don't allow my parents to pull that crap with me.

No, not living vicariously, but I certainly take advantage of the situation to be a kid myself on occasion:

- I think "the kids" would really like to go to the water park this weekend.

- Sorry honey, I would love to go over to your mother's for dinner, but I promised junior we would go ride go-carts this evening.

- We need to get two Nerf guns. That way one of "his friends" has one to play with at the same time.

I grew up in the space race era. Watched everything from Mercury to Apollo. My son and his wife work at NASA in Houston. Hell ya I am living through my children. My son is working on the Orion project.

Listening to the voices is calming. Except for Fernado, he pushes my buttons.
