I thought this thread was going to say "Men with older brothers are more likely to be........athletic, funny, educated, competitive, charismatic. Something along those lines, not a freaking flamer! :-P :-t


Stop looking at me like that JimB. O:-)


Can't help it, I've got a soft spot for flannels. ;-7


It's my orange cap that gets you going, admit it. O:-) B-)

Look a little deeper within yourself Tiki. I'm sure there's a flamer just dying to escape.


Isn't there a picture of you making it with....of all things...a turtle?

From the looks of the pic, you were FLAMIN' that night...... ;-)


Yeah, that is one flamin pic Tiki. :-b
Yeah, but that's comedy.
Keep it lit.

I'm pretty sure the only direct correlation that can be made about having older brothers is that you are more likely to be tough than someone without.

I'm the oldest in my family (two younger bros) and I know for a fact that I beat the living crap out of the other two on a regular basis growing up and they are now pound-for-pound MUCH tougher than any pansy only-child of similar build...

This "study" is proof of the fact that an education does not prevent someone from being a moronic jackass...

I know i got the crap kicked out of me 3 times a day for quite a long time. Thats one of the reasons i started tae kwon do :-b
This article is a joke. Anyone that has older brothers will tell you that when you are the youngest you want to do everything better then your brothers. I would think the youngest would be more competitive if anything.

I actually read something about that a couple years back about the younger or middle sibling being more prone to success than the oldest simply because they grew up having to work harder so, obviously, that corelated to success later.
