If you're contemplating if you're too old to have kids then we're probably around the same age, and we both know that Millennials have incorporated video gaming as a common pastime since way before 2014.  We also both know that gaming != gamergater, the subset that are toxic incels are pretty narrow so I was asking how you keep gravitating towards a dating pool that's overwhelmed with them.

The self-filtering that happens is as you get older there are just flat out fewer singles and there is an age line where the men are much more likely to be some mix of grumpy, bitter and the question is how bad: stereotypical hates his ex-wife and resents his kids because of child support? Has gone full MAGA hat?  Went 'Men Going Their Own Way'?

Lots of toxic options for men and lots of avenues of radicalization.

The interesting thing is, socialized health care may be an end result of Covid-19, as insurance companies refuse to pay out for the unvaccinated, and whiners find something new to whine about.

Simple math?  COVID at least doubles the background mortality rate, and births vs. deaths is already pretty close.  It doesn't seem like you'd have to do too much to help COVID before you're going to have more COVID deaths than new births.

Though if there's a statistician in the house who understands population demographics, I could use a primer on why I'm told we're below replacement birth rate here in Canada yet we have significantly more births than deaths.  Is it a generational delay effect or something?

Illinois has had net migration out of the state for quite a few years yet we are still blue on the ratio of deaths versus births. Huh.

Could it be a democratic governor who instituted shutdowns and mask requirements that matched CDC recommendations and achieved one of the highest vax rates of all the states.
