  1. According to Google, it takes 3 pounds of apples to make 1 quart of applesauce. 3 medium apples make 1 pound, so 150 medium apples would make 50 pounds. 50/3 is 16.667, so she should have had 16 quarts and 1 pint. Since she only got 7 quarts out of 150 apples, most of them must have been very small, bruised, or buggy.

    Jill & Derick Dullard: Counting On (Donations)

    She got over 16,600 likes for that picture. The company knows exactly what they're doing. Even if only 1 person bought something using her code, it was still free advertising for them.

    The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    I agree. The pictures where they're both seated make them appear to be closer in age. This may be something that follows them for a long time. The first year my 5'2" self dated my future 6'3" husband we went to a Denny's and I was offered a kids meal. Years later we were at Walmart with our youngest who was 3 and a cashier offered gave him a sticker to give his grandson.
  4. Then he can do something about it. He's as much responsible for the diaper mountain as Jessa is. Although now that Spurgeon is walking and talking in full sentences, I'm pretty sure it's his responsibility to dispose of the diapers.

    Small Talk: The Prayer Closet

    I'm sorry you've had troubles but glad you're feeling better. I hope things keep going up for you.
  6. No, we just know they're trying to sell their house because their printing business is growing.
  7. My guess is Nurie does the majority of the childcare and household chores (or makes sure the younger girls do them). Jill is probably terrified of her leaving and everyone expecting Mama to pick up the slack. By moving to Florida, Nurie can train her younger siblings while Mama tries to snag the other Keller boy and a Duggar boy for Kaylee and Renee. Tessie is 12 and Hannah is 10, so they're definitely old enough to take over parenting the little girls and keeping the house clean.

    JD and Abbie: Captured Before the Rapture

    I don't think JimBob & Michelle would have shunned (or would now shun) any child who went off the rails. They've allowed their children to be around Amy all her life and presumably around JimBob's sister who was living in sin with Amy's father for a long time. I think most of them, especially from Joseph down, would have an extremely hard time surviving because of their piss-poor education and lack of awareness of how the real world works. However, without the show, I think Josh would have been allowed to go to either Clown College or maybe even Liberty, gotten caught naked in someone's bed and expelled, then bolted instead of going to Jesus Jail. Josiah would have bailed at 18 and found some family who appreciated him to live with and help him get things figured out. JD, Jana, Jessa, and Jinger would have all married and eventually slowly migrated to a more mainstream Christian church and given up Gothardism. Jill would have married a man just like dad and been as unhappy with him as she is with Derick. And Joy probably would have married Austin. I think after Josh and Josiah, Michelle and Jim-Bob would have gotten stricter, more confining, and more controlling of the younger kids to keep them in line. The show has given them enough money to go on childless vacations and having so many older kids at home lets them leave without any guilt or responsibility. Without the show, I think they would have ended up doing a lot more parenting once the older girls began marrying.

    Joy and Austin: This One Time At Family Camp

    According to E!News, the baby was stillborn at 20 weeks. They posted pictures of them holding a dressed teeny-tiny baby, so I'm sure they consider her a stillborn baby as opposed to a miscarriage.

    Josiah and Lauren: He Has To Marry Somebody

    I'm kind of hoping that Lauren is having such a miserable pregnancy and then a long painful labor that she decides she doesn't want to go through that every 12-18 months for the next 20 years. I'm pretty sure Josiah would be fine with using some sort of birth control. My dad did that. He & my mom married at 18 & 15, and my brother was born 2 months later. 2 1/2 years later, my mom was 6 months pregnant with her 3rd child and my dad went out for a pack of smokes. He apparently took a left when he should have taken a right because he ended up in a different state and it took him 2 years to find his way back.

    Joy and Austin: This One Time At Family Camp

    Which is fine until she's wearing a dress while swimming or raking gravel at the worksite. Then it's a matter of control and obedience to her headship, not a matter of looking pleasing to her husband.
  12. How do you massage the kale and why?

    I would imagine that memo was highly promoted in his classes. Most of the professors in my college warn students about what they are posting on social media.
  14. I don't think Jana is boring or bland. She's the only one at home who has a creative outlet. Whether you like her decorating or not, at least she's doing something. She has a garden that is also kept neat and decorated; she has an outside area for relaxing. To me, this means she reading and/or watching videos to learn how to do these things. The rest of the adult Duggars seemingly do nothing all day. Even the younger Duggars don't seem to have any interests beyond what JimBob and Michelle deem important. Jana has worked within that system to find ways to grow.
