QUESTION OF THE DAY:

What is the greatest number of children born to one mother over her lifetime?

ANSWER:

According to the Guinness Book of World Records, 67 is the grand total! Apparently a peasant woman from Shuya, near Moscow in Russia, had 16 pairs of twins, seven sets of triplets and four sets of quadruplets. This was reported on February 27, 1782. Only two of the children died in infancy, an otherwise common outcome of rural births of the 1700s!
