-{Dateline: Saturday afternoon}-

Trumwill: Hey Clancy, if someone was born on October 18, 1990, how old would they be?

Himmclan: It’s not October yet, so 18.

Trumwill: That’s what I thought

Himmclan: Did the rules of mathematics change?

Trumwill: No, I was just wondering if I suddenly got stupid.

Himmclan: I don’t think you have, sweetie.

Trumwill: Next question: When you graduated high school, you were 18, right?

Himmclan: Yeah.

Trumwill: Aren’t most people 18 when they graduate high school?

Himmclan: Pretty much. Unless they turned 18 over the summer…

Trumwill: Or they were placed early, skipped a grade, or were held back. But other than that, 18 right?

Himmclan: Right.

Trumwill: That’s what I thought

Himmclan: Why are you asking these questions, dear?

Trumwill: Half Sigma has a post accusing Sarah Palin’s daughter of graduating late because she’s 19. But the date he gives for her birth seems like 18 to me. But then he says that people graduate when they’re 17 and not when they’re 18. Absolutely none of this post seems right. None of it. And not in the way that Half Sigma is usually wrong.

Himmclan: He doesn’t know what he’s talking about.

Trumwill: Yeah. Hey, wait, I just hit response and the post disappeared. Did he delete the post? He must have deleted the post.

Himmclan: Maybe he realized that he doesn’t know what he’s talking about.

Trumwill: That would be a first.

    Siggy updated the post to note that Bristol in fact graduated on time.

    There was at some point a second post, entitled “Bristol Palin is 19 going on 20” that took people to task for doubting his comment about Bristol graduating late. Right about the time I was reading it, he took that post down. At some point shortly afterwards, he must have updated that first post.
