I'm cutting my balls off to celebrate this event.

That's over 2.5 billion since I was born,
wondering how many more before I die.
God! let me for once make a difference,
not by destroying but by preventing.

I'm not sure your mother will be happy with that news, egan ... :)

Disturbing, isn't it jeyavel. But there is increasing infertility and a desire for smaller families in many countries these days ...

the momentum keeps it pushing, In India a two child norm is being advocated with the phrase, "we two, ours two!" and more recently even 1 child, "One family, one child!".

Despite all this India is expected to overtake China's population in the coming decades.

Egan's wasn't very original with his comments to this post. :-P I think that's just his standard answer to anything he doesn't have an opinion on. Ha ha...

This population thing...it's a crazy fact to wrap your brain around, isn't it?
