What’s the Accuracy of the Chinese Baby Calendar?

Ever since I discovered the interesting legendary strategy of gender control, I kept wondering what’s its success rate. I decided to present in this small article what I have found out on this subject. First and foremost, it seems that the Chinese baby calendar accuracy is between 70% and 90%. This means that, out of one hundred attempts, only 70 to 90 succeed.

About the Chinese Gender Predictor Accuracy

In other words, out of one hundred couples who use this method for conceiving the baby they want – be it a girl or a boy – only between seventy and ninety women of these couples manage to get pregnant with a baby of the gender they prefer, while the rest of them, between ten and thirty, either get pregnant with the undesired baby or don’t get pregnant at all.

The Internet represents the source from where I discovered these values. To put it more accurately, most of the sites which characterize this ancient method claim that its success rate ranges from 70% to 90% or so. A clinic from Taiwan seems to have reported an accuracy for the Chinese gender predictor of over ninety percent, which is really good, don’t you think? To be honest, let’s admit that only those who work in hospitals, clinics and other medical facilities, where babies are born, know and can tell whether this legendary strategy of gender selection and prediction really works.

About the tests that have been done

And, do you know why? Well, for the simple reason that they have access to databases which contain all the information one needs to check the reliability of this method:

  • the dates when the persons are born;
  • the gender of each person;
  • the dates when the mothers are born.

Obviously, after reading the three items above, you could say: Hey, wait, the birthdates are not what we need to test this method! Yes, that is true, but, knowing when they were born and if they were born at term, we could quickly deduce the dates when they were conceived, don’t you think? Is it such a big deal to subtract nine months – the normal duration of any human pregnancy?

Another thing you might object after going through the list above refers to the mothers’ birthdates: the Chinese birth chart contains the mother’s lunar age at conception. But, think a little, knowing when the baby was conceived and when the mother was born, couldn’t you easily compute her lunar age at conception? Of course you could, if you know the rules that govern the Chinese lunar calendar and a little mathematics. Don’t worry, it’s not so difficult. Read More →

This is the speech template I used for my son’s wedding

Today I’ll share with you the wedding speech template that I used for my son’s wedding. I’m not sure how important is this to my blog’s readers, but since it’s a personal blog, I can write whatever I want, right? In the end, that’s what makes it personal, not just posting the typical news articles.

I know there are probably much better examples of father of the groom speeches out there (like for example on this site), and I saw some pretty good websites built exclusively to share tips on this topic, so don’t expect this to be a professional speech template, it’s just the one I used and I gotta say I am pretty happy with the way my speech went. So, here it is.

You probably know that a typical speech (not just wedding speeches, but any kind of speech) has 3 parts: intro, body and ending. I kept the intro pretty simple. As usual, I started with an opening greeting (“Hi, everyone! Welcome to the biggest event of the year”), thanked everybody for coming to this big event (it was pretty important for me also, but honestly, for my son was 10 times more important, hehe) and then I made a little joke about the wedding location (well, I could afford that since I knew a pretty big part of the people that attended the wedding, and I could make some jokes and use a friendly and familiar tone in my speech).
