    Population control will be in our near future.. This planet is getting closer and closer to having no resources left.

    If only we could go back in time and start over.. :rolleyes:

    Actually some people believe that we will soon reverse this trend. The rate of population growth is slowing and may soon level out and reverse. Then, we'll have too many older people and not enough young people to take care of them.

    I actually did quite a bit of research on this a year or two ago for a class I was taking. At that time, the U.S. was the only developed country with a fertility rate over 2 (largely due to Hispanic immigrants having a larger number of children).

    With the continued growth of women's rights and sex education in developing nations, many experts expect the population to level off around 2050. Of course, we could easily add another billion to the world by then.

    With genetic engineering taking off and research in diseases. I wouldn't be surprised if, well before we reach this point, someone accidentally or purposefully unleashes a disease to wipe out a vast majority of the worlds population. Third world countries being the most heavily hit given the lack of medicine and access to good hygiene.

    Sorry. :eek: No kids for me, though. ...I wonder who will take care of me at an old age. Perhaps my young hooker girlfriends.

    So when someone says you're "one in a million", it means there are seven thousand people out there just like you.

    It's today plus or minus 12 months. So really any time between May this year, and May last year.

    But definitely headed for too many... Population growth really, really concerns me. :(

    500 million people appears to be just about right. So were a little heavy right now. (according to georgia guidestones)

    Realized that when Apples market cap was 390B a few weeks ago with the help of their investors, they had enough money to give everyone on the planet $55 a piece.
