    Is it fair to have children, or more than one or two children, as world population grows at rates unprecedented before the 20th century?

    At current rates we can expect to go from 6.725 billion today to almost 9 billion by 2042.

    As a side thought, will the notion of 7 degrees of separation still hold?

    Sorry I missed this, but that is a good post, and also the root of almost all our problems world wide.

    Tourist: "This place used to be really cool, but then it got popular and all these tourists started coming here all the time and now it's kinda lame."

    That's right. Remember, wagans don't believe in killing dogs. They just want to kill kids.

    Weren't you the one complaining about derailing threads with hate-speech? Your comment was productive to this thread, and not the least bit hypocritical, how, exactly?

    People should be able to have as many kids as they want, so long as they can AFFORD them.
