Palin's 17-year-old daughter pregnant
Republican vice presidential hopeful Sarah Palin revealed Monday her 17-year-old unmarried daughter Bristol is pregnant, and plans to have the baby and marry its father.

"We're proud of Bristol's decision to have her baby and even prouder to become grandparents," Sarah Palin and her husband Todd said in a joint statement, confirming news reports of Bristol's pregnancy.

"Bristol and the young man she will marry are going to realize very quickly the difficulties of raising a child, which is why they will have the love and support of our entire family," the statement said, pleading for media privacy.


WTF. What rad news to appear just barely two months to the big day. I wonder how the Obama camp is going to pick this up. I am anticipating.


Daddy, I'm in love... and he looks just like you!
Men tend to wind up with life partners who look like their mother, while a woman is lured to a partner who looks like her father, scientists reported on Wednesday.

Heterosexuals are deeply attracted to individuals whose faces are similar to that of their opposite-sex parent, they said, suggesting that this characteristic is rooted in an evolutionary drive.

A team led by Tamas Bereczkei at the University of Pecs in Hungary created a model of facial ratios -- width of jaw, distance between mouth and brow and so on -- comprising 14 facial zones.

They measured 312 Hungarian adults from 52 different families using this method. Each family included a couple, along with two sets of parents.

The researchers found a significant correlation in facial similarities between a woman's mate and her father, and also between a man's partner and his mother.

The team tested the model on faces that were randomly selected from the general population and repeated the experiment with a panel of judges, who also picked out the same pairings from randomly selected groups of photos.

Interestingly, men and women focused on different parts of the face when they home in on a potential mate, they found.

A man's lover and his mother tended to have similar fullness in the lips, width of mouth, as well as length and width of jaw.

But for women, the critical features were the distance between mouth and brow, the height of the face, distance between the eyes and the size of a man's nose.


If this theory were to be true, I would be very very sad, and my sister-in-law would be very pretty. Haha, just joking papa. Well, it's not the first time I came across articles on such theories and I am not sure whether it is true or not. I mean I happen to like guys with height, but I have not been biased towards the 170-s.

But I believe pet owners look like their pets. No link with the article, but yeah.

It's Thursdee, and sewing night. The office is unbearably cold this afternoon. I am going for my forth cup of milo now.
