"What is the year?" Tan said he asked one of the siblings.

"Eighty," one said. "Ninety," another replied. "Animals," said another. "July," explained the fourth. "House," the last said.


No one answered "Potato"?

Kitties can have cerebellar hypoplasia, IIRC. It's sometimes cute, in an aww-you-poor-little-guy kind of way.

They can, and other than severe cases where they're unable to walk or stand, they lead normal lives beyond their awkwardness.  Plenty of YouTube videos of happy CH kitties.

FTFA: "Characterized by loss of balance, impaired cognitive abilities and a habitual quadrupedal gait, it's a syndrome, Uner Tan theorized, that "a backward stage in human evolution." In other words, the siblings were thought to be walking proof that our evolutionary advances could - poof - vanish, and we'd be back to walking on all fours. "

This is possibly the stupidest farking thing I have read all week, and I've spent a goodly portion of this week on the politics tab.

These cases freak me out. Is it weird that if they trusted me I'd just want to grab them by the shoulders and pull them upright to give them a more advantageous vantage point. Would it hurt them? Would they be anxious?


Great...sweet dreams for me.

there are documentaries about this family on youtube, here is one: The Family that Walks on All Fours. iirc, the mother and father are blood-related to a degree.

That is so '80s I just sprouted leg warmers and started fantasizing about Robert Smith. I think I dig it.

Umm, 19 in the brood? The last bunch weren't birthed, so much as slip and slided.

I was on a beach in California - Santa Cruz, I think - and a man walked past on all fours. Very strange.

Haha yep, definitely alot of 80's goth-darkwave influence going on! I'm amazed a band like that actually came from Turkey of all places, and that I've actually liked a newer goth rock band in years, especially one singing in Turkish.

Q: Which one of those women is the mother?

A: All of them. Oh, sure, the oldest woman technically gave birth to them, but like hell she mothers them all. The older kids aren't the younger ones so that Mommy and Daddy can make more spawn for the kids to take care of.

I don't like that family.

Its even creepier when you see them actually doing things. Go watch their show sometimes--it is farked up.

Also: they've declared their home a church, and now conveniently pay zero taxes on it. (They've actually shown them attending an actual church multiple times, so there's no argument about "but that's where they worship!") Wonder how much they pull in from welfare...or how much they pulled in from welfare before the TV money rolled in.

Yep.  I've known people like that, and they're monumentally farked in the head.  The eldest girls do all the housework while the boys play.

Also, DEVO.

Something about all those kids behaving at the same time long enough for a family portrait. That's just so wrong. They look like Stepford Children. Gah.

What's the show called? I am morbidly curious about them.

19 Kids and Counting.

Yes, they contonue to try to fill up the clown car even more, even after the last one almost died (and, as I recall, almost killed the host). And I have a very simple theory as to how the kids are never seen running around when they aren't supposed to or mouthing off or doing anything that isn't Stepford-like perfect: drugs.

I want so badly for you to be the House of Gord guy.

But.. for the record, I am pretty sure one can achieve that level of obedience using simple brainwashing and the threat of eternal damnation/separation from those you love.  At least until they're old enough to start banging the whole rugby team.  And whichever kid turns out gay is going to need a lot of therapy.

When I was a wee lad, my brothers and I behaved reasonably well for a very simple reason: we got our asses beaten if we didn't behave. But the Duggar spawn dont act like children--they act like Cybermen.
