By Halloween there will be 7,000,000,000,000 of us on Earth. I know that Bill's family is partly to blame, as there are 5 genertaions of them still on he planet and it wasn't designed to work that way.

There were 3 billion of us when Kennedy was in office.

A piece I saw last night stated that, in the time of Jesus, there were about 200,000,000 peeps. They then stated that, during the time of Cleopatra there were only 15,000,000.

See, that's a big problem, because, historically speaking, Jesus and Cleopatra are from the same period of Roman Imperialism. Their deaths are less than a century apart. So, either those #'s are incorrect, or there was a crapload of fornication goin' on. Either that or imigration.

Always call the place you live a house. When you're old, everyone else will call it a home.

it is said that the population will stabilize when there will not be enough food for further increases in population, or...

they will make world wars to decimate the excess pop.

I fixed your decimal place for billion.


I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you.

That's pretty scary. Let's see, statistically 1/4 of those have std's, 1 out of 10 are bi-polar, etc, etc. You get the picture.

He'd be right if he was British. But then he'd be wrong.

Thanks, Peter. I got carried away. But 7 trillion IS shocking!

Thanks for catching that. And thanks for not quoting my typo. Gee, trillion instead of billion, "immigration" missing an "m." WTH is my world coming to? I just feel too crowded to think clearly anymore.
