[Jagger] currently has seven children, from four different women, who range in age from 45 to 17.

Yeah, he spreads his moisture, all right.

Didn't he have another one just a few months back?

At least he provides for them financially. There are worse situations to be born into than being Jagger's illegitimate offspring.

Whenever i find  a little pine seedling, ill surround it with a few rocks. They shelter the tree, retain moisture, and the trees really like it. First tree i did that to ten years ago is now a happy six foot tree. Pretty cool cause it took so little effort.

That's 8 kids with 5 women. The last one was born in was December 2016, according to Wikipedia. I remember a FARK thread, but it really does seem more recent. I guess we're just bad with dates... unlike Mick.
