The parents aren't considering "FTK" then?

PaV: I suppose for me to be pried away from what I do to focus long and hard on that particular problem would take, quite honestly, hundreds of thousands of dollars to begin to pique my interest.

Thanks all.  "Sophia Ellen" seems to have taken the lead in the minds of the parents (but, then, what do they know).  A very healthy, wriggling, wide-eyed, fist-and-finger munching, hungry, tiny-squeak emitting little munchkin.

Note the "i" in Sophia, at least!

Congratulations, grampa pinhead!

You get to spoil her and then hand her back to the 'rents. :-)

Sophia Ellen ("Wisdom" and "The Bright One") is a beautiful name.

Edit: Ellen, cognate of Helen.

Thanks for the additional good wishes!

The pinhead cranium is mostly a function of head-binding, under the supervision of the clan mothers.  That's a process that won't start immediately and tends to vary from generation to generation.

At the moment, she's far too beautiful for cultural modification!

Congratulations to mother and baby and grandparents.....and also the father. But as I have learned the father comes waaaaaaaaaaaaaay down the list.

Bitter? Me? Never!

Taking the piss out of myself? ....Perhaps!

Anyway, I am sure the F1 Pinheads will have a great time with the F2 Pinheadette. And the F0 Pinhead can have the great, vengeance filled joy of handing the F2 Pinheadette back to the F1 Pinheads with the immortal words:

"I'm sorry, your daughter appears to have filled her nappy. This is really, really, REALLY your problem. Enjoy!"

Congratulations again.

Louis

P.S. As for names. Why bother? They don't come when you call them. Just call her "Oi YOU!" for a few years until she's developed a bit more. What? WHAT? That's a perfectly legitimate parenting technique!

Quote
   When I talk to people about what makes us human, some people say it's our tears. Because we are the only ones who weep, only we can feel true sorrow.

When I hear this, I remember Isiro's face, her anguished eyes as she cried for Mikeno, how she screamed at the keepers with her teeth bared and pushed at the poles. How she dashed back to his body and dug her fingers into his chest as if the strength of her grip could bring him back.

There is sorrow without tears. Of course there is. - Vanessa Woods, Bonobo Handshake.

Congratulations. I'm a bit disappointed nobody thought of a nice Irish girl's name like Gobnait* Concepta** or Sophie***




* Pronounced gub nit. Common in Co. Kerry.

** Pronounced Septa! C'meeyah an lookah de airse on dis fella!. Vulgar Common in North Dublin

*** Pronounced EwMyGawd Sewfy. Nawt, loik, common at allll? But Daddy droives a big Beemer? And always speaks in, loik, questions?

Again, thanks for all the kind words!

Changing the odd nappy won't bother me all that much (though, to be sure, I'm glad not to have the frontline duty).  After raising three boys, I'll just be glad not to be fountained with pee during the changing...!

And I don't think Sophia is all that far from Sewfie, at all, at all...

Though I realize she won't be able to go skiing or climbing or frisbee-throwing with me for a few years, still, Sophia's impendency has challenged me to get back into shape over the summer and early fall.  Still, just "having" my first grandchild at 60 will be a lasting challenge to stay sharp physically, mentally (always a chore for Teh Pinhead), and technologically.

I'll be looking for you younger AtBCers to keep me on my toes!

I guess that's OK.  As long as she knows how to find the area under a curve by the time she's five.

Oh noes!  Has Henry been following the aqua-follies over at the Talk Rational forum (aquatic ape wingnut Algis Kuliukas vs. a rabid band of aqua-skeptics)?

In any event, Sophia definitely does enjoy playing with her food.  Which is based upon water, but with natural nutrient additives...

Yeah.  Algis Kuliukas is a failed Ph.D. candidate/wingnut who is one of the ten or so most fanatic proponents.  Having first followed Dave Hawkins to the Dawkins forum and various other venues, many of us from the old endless flood/young earth threads here settled in at Talk Rational (so, in part at least, it's a spinoff of here!).  We encountered Algis at the Dawkins' forum, and he is the same kind of persistent, knuckle-headed fount of endless tard and lulz that Davey was in his heyday.

And also a catalyst of a little nucleus of skeptics who poke fun at the poor fella, learn a little genetics, evolution, anatomy, paleontology, anthro, cladistics, and so forth on the side, mostly to have darts to hurl at our whackamole.

There's a couple of other mildly-amusing trolls there, too, including the latest incarnation of that guy from here (Paley's Ghost?) who claimed to be two guys, and another whacko who is quite confident that birds are descended from pterosaurs, whales from mosasaurs, and the like.

Not to mention Davey himself, who is still flailing away, tardistically.

Good times.
