Sibling for the Only Child Service

Match the only child to another

Give them what they've always wanted : A brother or sister.

<I fully accept that not all only children wish that they had a sibling. But for those that do, this webbased service could find their ideal brother or sister within their local vicinity. They can go climb trees together, or collect fossils.>

SOCS V2.0 now includes :

2.1. I wanted a sister, but got a brother, so I'm swapping.
2.2. Swap my sibling for a nicer one.
2.2.1. Swap my sibling for someone who is likely to be famous in the future.
2.3. I have too many siblings. Can I swap a brother for a cat?
2.4. Exchange sister for someone altogether less annoying.

       I always wanted a sister, but I had a brother instead. Maybe I could switch with someone...?

       Can I have Angelina Jolie?

       services added [phoenix] and [hippo]

       Well, she wouldn't be a sister by BLOOD ... therefore, I would have no qualms :D ... I'd build a fort with Mila Jovanovich anytime.

       "I mean, she might make a perfectly cool person to just buy beer for you, but ..."
Hey, that too. I'm flexible.
  

       It's nice to see you around, by the way.
phoenix, Jan 03 2004
  

       Ha I like it, but once you swap your sibling can you ever swap back if you realise you made a mistake?   

       Is there any charge to this service?

       I've got 1 brother, but my sister has 2.   

       Can we have some way of redressing this imbalance ?

       [pjd] suspect this is not the idea for you ... try googlin' for sex change operations ;)

       2.5 - I have an older brother, but I'd rather have a younger one.
