I am the second smartest child in my family. Also, dumbest.

by JGordon on Jun. 23rd, 2007

A new study suggests that people raised as the eldest child in a family have markedly higher IQs than thier younger siblings.

This is good news for my big brother, bad news for me, and very, very bad news for all my imaginary little brothers and sisters. But they've always been pretty dense.

That explains why you misspelled "their" in your post. Or is it "there"? No wait, it must be "they're". "Thar"? Dang it, I just realized I'm a second child.

Oh, fudge.
I won't even change that. I don't think I even know how.
If only I were born 28 months earlier! I could have been the master of possessive pronouns. I'll never forgive mine parents.
