I lived in Japan for six years, and it is my experience that Japanese people look like they are sixteen till one, unpredictable, morning when they are instantly several hundred years old.

I'd rather deal with an asian woman aging than a eastern european woman aging.

In KY most black & white women ripen obviously when they're around 14, then they're over the hill by 30. In fact most are hills by 30. Pumping out 3 or 4 kids might help, as might not getting up off the damn couch to flee. And some of the women are sloppily humongous and have several kids, including a wee infant, which likely means their menfolk have been blind drunk at least twice.

I don't know enough Hispanic people well enough to tell how old the women are, no baseline for comparison, but I can tell you that around here poor white & Latino men age at least as fast as the women. Poor white men age especially quickly when they have a few kids and their wives are humongous, and they're usually skinny themselves -- which might tell you something.

At least Lexington seems good for Hispanic kids: there are quite a few around here and they usually look better kept than their non-Latino age & class cohorts, even the ones in the nearby trailer park slum. If that dump is somehow better than where their people come from I'm all in favor of welcoming them here. The long-term stock is about played out, like I hear it's been in West Virginia for a couple or three generations, because those who are able get out as soon as they can. And the worst find a way to die before age 30 or go to prison for a long stretch, while the most mediocre settle down to breed, praise Jesus, get fat, biatch about the immigrants who take jobs they're too fat & weak to do anyway, and live to a ripe old unappetizing age having been functionally decrepit for the previous 25 years.

I'll try to age faster to do my part, but I seem to get stuck at a rate of 1 year / year.

Yes, the famed Asian Time Vortex. It's like Master Yoda got farked by Dorian Gray.

DubtodaIll: From the short time I spent in Japan, I think the elderly would rather be taken care of by robots than young people anyway.

They're workin' on it.
