I'll be long gone and I've made sure that I created no annoying descendants too. I've done my part for population control. It's partially how a rationalize my 16MPG Mustang GT, hour long hot showers, and keeping my thermostat at 60 degrees all summer long. I'm bad but I've made sure that I'm the last of my line. Now get off my lawn!

We're all just a bunch of "slashfags" anyway. Who are we to criticize? I tried to explain the weird evolution of the word "fag" to a friend and he didn't get it at all. There are people today who use the word in a way that has nothing to do with homosexuality (just as oddly enough it long ago had nothing to do with homosexuality) "oldfag", "newfag", 'bfag" or "btard" more commonly get people all riled up about the rampant homophobia (or political incorrectness where "tard" is concerned) but don't seem to get that the people using them are fine with homosexuality. It's like the actual state of being gay is fine now and culturally got accepts but the words describing them (previously in a derogatory way) didn't..... but people decided to use them for something else anyway.

That's my thought expressed perfectly. I consider myself a very pragmatic person and took stock of my abilities a long time ago. I care predominantly about myself (unapologetic about that) and those I know directly. I'm not antisocial at all. I meet people all the time and make friends easily enough but outside of the people I actually come into contact with I don't feel a great deal of connection to the rest of my species. I'm 48 and in my lifetime they've grown by the billions without any contribution on my part. I also recognize that I'm self-centered enough to make a poor parent. Friends with children tell me that would change with the arrival of a child but without any desire to reproduce why do that. Sure, I stay in practice :) I just doubt the doomsday scenario that calls upon me to contribute to repopulating the earth will come to pass. I have an "Earth + Plastic idea of what will come to pass. In that bit Carlin ends with his prophetic "The Earth isn't going anywhere. WE ARE" and I think he missed-it-by-that-much on that one. The human race is part of this world and we're one of the most adaptable species on this rock. If it can be survived we're going to survive it. Not all of us of course. Not even most of us. The species however will go on and adapt to whatever comes along. We always have and we always will.
