zetar: I am proud to report that I was expelled from New Trier (underground newspaper in the '60s). Also expelled from New Trier blues great Michael Bloomfield and actor Ralph Bellamy. Graduate: Rummy. 'Nuff said.

/ Got a PhD in computer science so this really held me back.


Mike Bloomfield.

//E-TOWN BABAY!


I have spent a lot of time in Evanston in the past 20 years, and this morning passed a door that said "E-Town Bistro" and thought, "that is the second time I have heard 'e-Town' and the last was years ago. It's a failed attempt at a nickname."

Now I've heard it three times. It's a trend!

Some people say kids' science education is important, but when they have mastered cloning at their age things have gone too far!

E-Town is a pretty common nickname for Evanston -- however, like many city nicknames, it's not used by the residents themselves, but by others (e.g., Frisco, Philly, Chi).

You're obviously not from Evanston because we do call it E-Town.  Always have; always will.

Not sure who 'we" is.

Like I wrote, I've heard it once before today. I've been to Evanston at least once a week, every week, for most of the past twenty years.

EyeHaveRisen: WhoGAS: EyeHaveRisen: ZZ9 Plural Z Alpha: FlashHarry: Let me guess: the town is awash in fertility drugs.

Yep, wealthy Chicago suburb with that many twins definitely fertility treatments/IVF going on.

Since its Chicago I'm betting there are more baby-daddys than mommas.  Probably 2.5 to 1

Wouldn't it be the other way around?  I mean, a woman can only get pregnant once while the man can get multiple women pregnant.  If one man did three women to produce three children, the ratio would be 1:3 with women the heavier.

1 twin is darker than the other.   You can't explain that

dv-ous: Also, some school in China probably already beat this and nobody there has ever heard of Guinness.


In China, if a woman is pregnant with twins, one must be aborted by law.

/Narrator: This is not actually true.
