    What do you mean?

    An entire CC team plus alternate in about 5 minutes!

    [Alright; a boys scoring five plus alternate and two girls in the individual race.]


    Seriously, I just hope they all survive. The first few weeks are critical.

        I saw this on the news and winced at the thought of 8 babies in 5 minutes. I won't tell you what my sister said, who was in labour for 50 hours with just 1. Was this woman's birth canal a water ride? Her pelvic floor laminated?

          A better explanation is that they were so small, as incompatible with life, or just barely. Brian's concern is fully justified.

            Latest report is that the octuplets are doing well, and they have six siblings!

              It wasn't a TV show, but Fourteen Is Too Many.

                Why in the world would a young mother with 6 children, including a set of twins, need to take fertility drugs? And what doctor would prescribe them?

                  Like Marlow alluded to, you get a TV show & $$$. How else do pay for it?

                  No one gives freebies for twins or triplets...I think 5 is the magic number to get all the swag (mini van, diapers for a year, free college, gift cards etc).

                    The story says that her use of fertility drugs has not been confirmed. It says that there are no recorded cases of naturally conceived octuplets without fertility drugs, but I don't know that this is significant, given the rarity of naturally conceived octupets.

                            They have two 4 by 400 relay teams, all with the same last name.

                              3 if you count the 6 they've already got. Prob best not to mention the last two teams with siblings in them though.
