Unexpectedly Intriguing!
February 10, 2011

Let's randomly pick on a couple in love with the improbable names of Henry and Tamara. Here's what Wikipedia might say about them if it saw them engaged in a public display of affection:

Baby Readiness Data
Input Data Values
Your combined household salary
Combined, how many brothers and sisters do you and your spouse have (include yourselves in this number)
Combined hours per week you and your significant other work outside the house
On a scale from 1-10, the highest level of aversion you have to any of the following: Changing diapers, sleep deprivation, visiting in-laws, tantrums
On a scale from 1-10, how concerned are you about global overpopulation

How Many Kids Should You Have?
Calculated Results Values
Should You Have Kids?
How Many Kids Should You Have?
Should You Be Concerned by the Decimal Portion of the Answer?
Henry and Tamara sitting in a tree:
First comes love,
then comes marriage,
then comes Kimmy in a baby carriage!

But are Henry and Tamara really ready for little Kimmy to come bouncing along? Better still, if their situation might apply to you and your significant other, are you?

Here at Political Calculations, we actually build tools to help people answer questions like that, and today's no different. We'll apply math developed by Geek Logik author Garth Sundem that can not only tell you if you should have kids, but how many your lifestyle might reasonably support!

Ready? Just enter the data that applies to Henry and Tamara's situation (wink-wink) into our tool.

Of course, what brought this topic up is that Garth has a new iPhone Geek Logik app coming out just in time for Valentine's Day!
