    Hi Smiddy,

    Are you counting your sons from birth or from time of baptism?

    They were baptized in 1962 and 1968, respectively?

    This graph has 105 data points. The trend is still very obvious: The maximum number of years spent inside the borg goes down linearly as time goes by, and the variability of the time in is reducing significantly, meaning that since 2000, there is one single factor that is affecting everyone, and I venture to say... it´s got to be the internet!

  • Ucantnome

    1) raised

    2) 1971

    4) 1996 (first elder visit 1994 last 1996 they have visited many times over the years)

    25 years.

    (I know of two people who have that's say, woken up. Both use the internet and are familiar with what is available on there. I had the internet around 1990 and I would think similar of them. However if both were to leave today there would be 30/40 years between baptism and leaving and neither are citing the internet as the reason for their waking and its nothing to do with me one. I don't know of any others personally. One was raised and one was a convert.)
