(Oregon Live)   You can tell the neighborhood in vitro fertilization clinic is top notch when the local high school can boast of eight sets of twins and one set of triplets   (oregonlive.com) divider line 21

There's a catholic high school near me that's named 'St. Hubert's' that has come to be known as 'St. Ho berts'

FTA:
"Part of teaching is content, but a lot of it is the relationship a teacher forms with a student," said history teacher Paul Klausenburger. "I'm always looking for a way to find an 'in.'

Uh, yeah.

Oh yeah and last I checked they had day care for crotchfruits of students who needed to be in class.

What do you expect, Jebus was a bastard child, Mary was only 13 when GOD RAPED HER. (or so the 'official' story goes.)

/let she who is without fetus cast the first crotchfruit
//or something

Jesus Christ. Look at those chompers.

How big is the class? That doesn't sound crazy for a large high school.

I totally misunderstood that. I thought the H.S. students were giving birth to that many kids.

Guess that's a result of my H.S. having the highest teen-pregnancy rate in the state.

I was expecting this to be about high schoolers getting IVF. Leaving disappointed....

A co-worker of mine lives in a new development of upper-middle class houses. He (mid-late 30's) remarked you can tell the affluence due to the number of (fraternal) twins enrolled in the local day care and the fact he's the youngest dad at parent events.

/lots of fertility clinics around DC catering to career women who's biological clock got louder.

What triplets may look like: possibly NSFW, definitely pops.

Yeah, I was eager to see what bizarre set of circumstances could lead to that.

Is that cat flying a shuttlecraft?

Weird, you'd think a cat flying a shuttlecraft would have better things to worry about than three smoking hot, barely clothed human triplets.

Looks like the school needs to get a branding iron.

"The answer, even for Carol Wyatt, the school's statistics instructor, is tricky.

"This is not an easy calculation,"


The current rate of twin births is 3% in the US. There are 335 students in the freshman class so you'd expect a mean of 10 people to be twins and given other factors like not breaking up pairs of twins, similar IQ, etc. having eight sets plus a set of triplets is probably in the 10-20% probability range. Not particularly earth shattering.

Perhaps someone with a better understanding of statistics and a bit more time can nail this down.

None of them look identical. My interest just waned.

But as the article said, each of them had to apply and be accepted separately. It is a private school, not public. That skews things quite a bit depending on the standards of admission.

Actually, really good fertility clinics have a low rate of multiple births...we were offered financial incentives and were STRONGLY discouraged from trying for twins, the idea being that a multiple pregnancy is higher risk for the mom & babies. We are VERY glad now that we just had one, because 4 1/2 months after I had my son I got pregnant the old fashioned way...can't imagine how I would have coped w twins.
