Rabbits





  • What does it mean to "breed like rabbits"?

    In public?

    At frequent intervals?

    For three seconds at a time?

    Given the context, the idea was probably "give birth to tens of kids". But the idea of the government telling us to go fuck ourselves is funnier.

    The video is just saying how to remain healthy while taking care of several children. It's not really telling you to breed, it's just saying how to handle yourself if you do.

    I know, I know, I'm spoiling the fun.

    I used to have a pet rabbit and he would try to fuck anything that moved, so idk I guess it'd work?

    Re-absorb your unborn children's bodies if you do not have the resources to properly care for and raise them?

    I'm 91 percent certain that's someone's fetish....

    I forget right now where I found it, but IIRC, the record for the number of children carried by one woman in recorded history is ~63, by a Russian. She had several multiple births, up to and including a set of quintuplets.

    The record for the number fathered by one man is more fuzzy, because guys can be uninvolved once they get the process started, but estimates for one particular member of the nobility (I forget where) who was well-known for his promiscuity (he even boasted about it) place the number above 200, and probably around 225, which were mostly bastard children. (I believe this discounts modern sperm bank participants, but it may have been before such became possible.)

    ‡ Assuming that the people before the Flood in the Biblical account continued having children for the ~900 years they were alive, their numbers could be astronomical by today's standards, but the account doesn't give any indication of the quantity of descendants, only a few notable ones.



  • @djls45 My aunt had 12 kids (with at most one set of twins). Then her sleaze of a husband left her.

    Genghis Khan is reputed to have sired hundreds of children.

    I think it's safe not to assume that

    I find it fascinating that those huge lifetimes are perfectly normal if they are expressed in terms of that many months instead of years, as if someone had mistranslated something that was originally a vaguer “periods of time”. Not saying that that's what occurred… but isn't it fascinating?

    Proof that conspiracies have been around forever!

    So, he just tried to replicate its owner’s behavior? Extremely common with pets.

    That is a fascinating theory. For the curious, here's the table of age at death for Adam to Noah:
    Patriarch Reported age at death Age if number is in months
    Adam 930y 77y 6m
    Seth 912y 76y
    Enos 905y 75y 5m
    Cainan 910y 75y 10m
    Mahalaleel 895y 74y 7m
    Jared 962y 80y 2m
    Enoch 365y 30y 5m
    Methuselah 969y 80y 9m
    Lamech 777y 64y 9m
    Noah 950y 79y 2m

    But it implies that Adam was 10 years and 10 months old when he fathered Seth (although if he was created as a fully-grown adult that wouldn't be a problem).
    However...
    it would also imply that Seth was 8 years and 6 months when he had Enos;
    Enos was 7y 6m when he had Cainan;
    Cainan was 5y 10m when he had Mahalaleel;
    Mahalaleel was 5y 10m when he had Jared;
    Jared was 13y 6m when he had Enoch;
    Enoch was 5y 5m when he had Methuselah;
    Methuselah was 7y 3m when he had Lamech;
    Lamech was 15y 2m when he had Noah;
    and Noah was 41y 8m when he had Japheth, 41y 10m when he had Shem, and he had Ham sometime before the Flood.

    And then Genesis also explicitly says that Noah was 600 years, 2 months, and 17 days old when the Flood began.

    At that age, your memory doesn't work like it used to.

    He probably started filling is bathtub and forgot about it.
    That could explain the flood undefined



  • @djls45 said in Rabbits:

    and Noah was 41y 8m when he had Japheth, 41y 10m when he had Shem, and he had Ham sometime before the Flood.

    But the law expressly forbidding him to have Ham hadn't yet been made at that time, so he can be forgiven for that....



  • @djls45 said in Rabbits:

    Given the issues we still have with calculating dates properly, 8 yrs vs 105 yrs is probably better guesstimation than what some people have written...



  • @djls45 I could easily see them starting the age count at some adolescence or adulthood ritual, rather than at birth. Doesn't fix the Noah issue.
