joj, LBF celebrate common goal: population reductiongreenspun.com : LUSENET : Freedom! self reliance : One Thread
JOJ is happy to read the latest UN population growth estimates, which estimate that the planet's population will peak out sometime this century, and begin to decline thereafter. Europe's women have gotten their acts together, popping out a mere 1.34 kids per mom; Japan is at 1.34. The US is at the bare replacement rate of 2.1. Overall, the women of the earth have lowered their rate or reproduction from five per mom to 2.7. This is great news, folks!
LBF, on the other hand, is celebrating the US plan to nuke the hell out of six or seven countries, thus further limiting the overpopulation problem.
LB, I'm so glad we have finally found some common ground!

How can a women have 1.34 kids?

Sorry SM Steve, the numbers are rounded off. The true amount was 1.3342567 children. They divided the children with an extremely fine scalpel.
I assume this was not a serious question, but if so, say so, and I'll cheerfully explain the math to you :~0

LBF & JOJ find common ground, JOJ and Doreen actuall agree on something. Nexar and John Leak agree with Laura on political issues......for some reason I'm not getting that warm fuzzy feeling....
Somebody needs to crawl out to the edge of the abyss and see if there is ice on that lake of fire. Joe, you do it, you 're not superstitious!
