Mentat: The biggest side effect of the population leveling off is that once the baby boomers die off, there will be a massive world-wide worker shortage.


No, there will be a worker shortage when they retire.  When they die, it will actually relieve the problem a bit by reducing the numerator in the "retirees per worker" equation.

Stone Meadow: IOW, we're going to top out at about 50% higher than we are now.

Scary graphs are scary?


That second graph was made in 1998; has anyone tried crunching the numbers with more recent data?  In 1998 AIDS was a major component of the projected decreasing rate of population growth.

Elmo Jones: Nacc: Please tell me more about your sense of entitlement.

Please tell me what I have asked you for.
These threads are very educational. They tell me which people's opinion's aren't worth a tinker's damn. Plus they remind me of all the worn-out tropes of closet-cases.
Can anyone tell me the name of a slave that they're related to?


If you're black, your ancestors came from near Pensacola, and your last name is Anderson...you might be a cousin of mine. Or a "good friend of the family", if not a blood relation.

GAT_00: Only if you're worried about the ratio of white people to everyone else.

If you look at net migration over, say, the last 50 years, WHITE cultures have been the most desirable places for all the black, brown, and yellow people to move to.

And have you noticed most countries populated by black, brown, and yellow people are TEEMING SHIATHOLES?

Your glib racist statement falls apart at just the slightest of scrutiny. I'd be worried, sizzlechest.

Are you still yelling at clouds? Because your implied argument is pretty awful.

Yes, no, and no, but we're no more than 50th cousins, like all the world.

I'm surprised you didn't call me racist.

 
Statement of fact, sizzlechest. Look at all the countries you would classify as TEEMING SHIATHOLES. Who lives there? Facts are facts. I'm not exactly goose stepping around the room doing the good ol' "sieg heil" each time I hit Add Comment.


Hey, maybe you can even work in the angle that it's ALL WHITE PEEPS FAULT anyway. Colonialism, and awl that.

 
I respect that you want to discuss your feelings and how AWFUL my post made you feel.

If recent data is accurate, there's folks walking around today with up to 4% Neanderthal DNA... possibly from multiple crossover events.

We're all pink on the inside, and aren't that choosy.

My gosh, somebody's sure got their ramifications in a WAAAAUUUGHH.

Last time I checked, Japan was not a teeming shiathole.

I find that particular viewpoint quite illogical.

Well yeah, it IS that, but it certainly is not a teeming shiathole.
