    How many brothers and sisters have you got?

    hope this hasn't been done before

    How many siblings have you got (please vote)?

    Are they older or younger than you, how many brothers or sisters each?

    I have a younger bro (22) but no sisters

    Is something to be concluded from this poll??

    I have two brothers.

    I am the second one.

    Not a very good position to be.... There are expectations from both, you have to be the elder one and the younger one at the same time.

    I have absolutely none (that I know of) though I think I would have liked a younger sibling.
    No doubt but there is none other beeste comparable to the mightie dragon in awsome power and majestie, and few so worthie of the diligent studies of wise men - Gildas Magnus, Ars Draconis, 1465

    heehee, I meant in terms of "number of children per family" Maddhy.
    I think by current birth rates in Germany my family is above average (1.2 or something), but when my bro and me were born birth rates were higher.

    Six, five brothers, one sister and I'm right in the middle. Three older brothers, two younger brothers and my sister is the baby. My younger sister just gave birth to her fifth and sixth children, I have two, which proves that the ability to learn by others' mistakes is diluted in direct proportion to where you fall in the birth order.

    I went to a bookstore and asked the saleswoman where the Self Help section was, she said if she told me it would defeat the purpose.

    I have two older brothers, one is 27 and the other 25, it's hard being the youngest and the only girl... poor little me....
