A very Christian woman marries a very Christian man. Following the words of the Bible, "Be fruitful and multiply," they have many children. 16 over the course of 18 years, to be exact.

A few years later, the husband dies suddenly of a heart attack. The lady remarries another man, and they have 17 children over the course of 22 years. The woman's second husband dies of old age.

The woman herself dies a few years later. At her funeral, her sister remarks, "Well, at least they're finally together."

"Who? She and her husbands?" asks the pastor.

"No," says the sister. "Her legs."

Theoretically possible, assuming yo start at 12, and hit menopause at 52. Unlikely but possible.

Sure, but I hope no "godly Christian man" was (hypothetically) knocking her up at twelve.

It really depends on what era you're talking about. In previous generations, women were married as soon as they started their period. And, even today there are some cults that encourage the marriage of girls who have just started their periods.

On their sixteenth anniversary, the husband dies suddenly of a heart attack while trying to make baby number 16. The lady remarries another man, and they have 12 more children, one a year for the next 12 years. On year 13 the new husband dies trying to do his duty to make another baby. Shortly after the woman dies as well.

At her funeral, her sister remarks, "Well, at least they're finally together."

"Who? She and her husbands?" asks the pastor.

"No," says the sister. "Her legs."

There, everyone happy ?

She could be roughly 18 at first marriage, and 48 when second husband dies. K ?

Much better. The feasible reality is horrific enough, it needs no exaggeration.

What, she has forty years of fertility?

Eh, maybe she has a slew of multiples in there.

Creaky Steel, I loved your joke regardless of whether or not it seemed improbable.

There was a woman in Russia that had somewhere around 60 kids. I don't remember the exact number, but, IIRC, she had multiple sets of multiples. If anybody has a Guinness Book handy, it's in there.

The average age of menarche has dropped over the decades and centuries. 250 years ago, girls did not get their periods until their mid-teens. Now the average age is 11 or 12.

I found this: http://idiotsguides.com/static/didyoukn ... ilyev.html

In 1725, Mrs. Feodor Vassilyev gave birth to her first child. There was nothing remarkable about the child (or the birth), except that he was the first of a brood that would make his mother famous.

Between 1725 and 1765, this wife of a Russian peasant gave birth to 69 children in 27 births, making her the record holder for the most children birthed by a single woman. What makes the record even more remarkable is the number of multiple births—16 pairs of twins, 7 sets of triplets, and 4 sets of quadruplets—and the fact that 67 of the 69 survived infancy. Sadly, little else is known about this remarkable woman, such as her birth and death dates, or even her first name. It was documented, however that her extraordinary achievement garnered her an audience with the Russian Empress.

Although Mrs. Vassilyev does hold the record for number of children, she does not hold the record for number of births. That record belongs to a 17th-century woman named Elizabeth Greenhill, who had 39 children, all of whom (with the exception of two pairs of twins) were single births. Mrs. Greenhill’s husband died before the birth of their last son, but is she is reported to have said that, had he lived, she would have had at least 2 or 3 more children.

I cant imagine how hard it would be to have 69 children in 27 years. Imagine looking after baby triplets and toddler quadruplets and triplets and two sets of preschool aged twins (with loads of older kids as well) while being pregnant with twins.

I am having so much fun imagining Mrs. Fyodor Vasiliev having a chat with Catherine the Great. :lol:

And now imagine doing it as an eighteenth century Russian peasant. Quadruplets don't all survive even now, even with modern medicine. If its true its an amazing feat that nearly all her children survived infancy.

Considering the only source seems to be "someone said that a man said that his wife had a zillion babies and lots were triplets!" I really, really doubt it. Is there any other source? I've heard it a number of times but I don't know why it seems to have been taken as gospel by so many.

The first published account about Feodor Vassilyev's children appeared in a 1783 issue of The Gentleman's Magazine (Vol. 53 p. 753, London, 1783) and states that the information "however astonishing, may be depended upon, as it came directly from an English merchant in St Petersburg to his relatives in England, who added that the peasant was to be introduced to the Empress".
No, guys, it's true, there IS a baby named Vagina! My boss's brother's friend works as a nurse and he swears he saw it!

I just copied it from reddit, and didn't parse the math first.

I have friends my age (51) who started their periods at 9. :/

      Disgusted with Catholic Church over Cardinal Pell's funeral this week. It really reflects poorly on the church and should be a red flag to Catholics.

      I've been away since about 10 PM on Monday evening.  My husband noticed that my speech was a bit slurred, called my daughter to see if she concurred and they both agreed that I needed to go to the hospital.  There I was taken back within minutes to be evaluated for a stroke.   My BP was sky-high. I. undressed and was helped into a hospital gown.  The PureWick did not work that night so when I had to go I just went.  (I do want a PureWick if I ever get urinary stress incontenence though and would need to wear diapers.). 
      I had a CT scan fairly early the next morning and it confirmed that I'd sufffered a mild stroke,  I had an MRI that afternoon which confirmed the both the mild stroke and no other damage and yet I had another CT scan -this time with a contrast medium injected.  I was allowed the Heart Healthy diet and my BP had dropped to 180/100.  They don'y want to drop the BP too rapidly so it has dropped enough to turn to Lisinipril to drop it further.
      After the ER. I was sent to the ICU and stayed until I was discharged this afternoon.  The staff were all really nice and my husband and two daughters were with me most of the time, helping out.  My oldest daughter's van was in the shop so I let her borrow the MINI since I knew she could drive a stick.  When she was visiting yesterday afternoon, her husband was in the ER waiting on a CT can and today, she was there when the speech pathologist was visiting.  She was able to get some good advice from her as her husband is currently unable to swallow.
      Anyway I'm home.  My dogs and the cat to see me home, especially my dachsie, were happy to see me home.
      A couple of things I learned:
      I need to teach my husband about loading the dishwasher.
      and 
      Jill would never be able to handle bedpans.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.
