Hello I had heard that the whole changing of the colours for the babies was due to Hitler using a pink star for homosexual people in Germany during World War Two. Has anyone else heard that or is that fake.

It's great to hear Chris more geeked out than ever over the engagement thing- I guess when the baby keeps them up at night he'll be avoiding reality wtih Good Job Brain even more. I heard Hitler killed 600,000 people with the pink triangle.

Hey Chris when the baby comes you can get into the 10 million stage with Astrosmash and create trivia all day.

When it comes to the Beatles songs that are women- Sadie isn't named after one, do your research on that one. Also a lot of those songs are Beatle Covers not by the group. Also there are yous in titles that are referring to women as well as at least one Baby. Baby, you can drive... Day Tripper, And Your Bird, Got To Get You, And I love Her- these refer to women too and are songs written by the Beatles. Honey Pie is another one. There are a lot of women in Beatle songs- but then wow they are lucky to under British law to only have to pay 5 pounds and provide a baby carriage to each of the underage girls they got pregnant on tour. Under law the girls could not contact them. The Beatles weren't very nice people I guess...
