The Tale of Genji by Murasaki Shikibu.

It is a wonderful lesson in pacing a story so that only the terminally bloody-minded can stick with it.

He got married. How can you expect him to be interested in invisible newbies until he has a pack of little Arctics to feed?

(Sorry. I just can't resist poking fun at you non-metric users.)

Even for non-metric users, "stones" is a bit arcane. May as well give one's height in cubits and one's annual income in terms of the purchase price of cows. Measure one's property in square stades. Give one's weight in drachmas. Crash rockets into Mars. :rolleyes:

Stones are perfectly normal units of measure in the UK, and also the reason for my first ever reply on Spiderweb. That was a very long time ago!

My beloved is reading Wintersmith, and chortling much.
I am reading the Divine Comedy and not chortling much at all.

—Alorael, who somehow thinks this relates to the batters. Boys can be in the majority most of the time without actually being more likely overall. This is, in fact, the question he first answered. You'll have more sisters than brothers and more families with excess males than families with excess females, but you will have one boy for every girl.

I think Alorael has identified the counter-intuitive problem here. Any one family will have either one son, one son and one daughter, or more daughters than sons. Families with equal gender balance will not affect things either way (one quarter of the families in a large enough population). There will be enough families with one son only (half the families in a large enough population) to compensate for the remainder with an excess of daughters.

Though I pity that population where half the boys are only children, and half the rest are the lastborn in a family of girls. Boy, does that sound like a population where no boy will learn do do his own laundry!

*giggles and runs away from accusations of sexism*

Edit: dratted typos!
