Just looking at what it would cost for me to attend YAPC::Europe. This is complicated by the fact that after biocon, Jenine says I can never ever leave her alone with the kids again. I'm not sure if it was because I had a room with a hot tub, or because she was alone with the kids for a week, but either way I'm either taking her with me or not going to conferences in the future.
My new favourite airfare shop discountflights.com tells me it'll cost at least $2000 for The Horde to make that trip. Then ~$500 for budget hotel... it all adds up.
Young fellahs and fellesses, listen up--breeding VASTLY complicates your life.
