"If your salary is paid from the taxes of those of us who do work for money, maybe don't bite the hand that feeds you?"

He didn't bite you. He wasn't rude. He didn't call you stupid.

If his post stung, or caused you to feel stupid, perhaps deep down you feel there's another way of life that might suit you better. This is a wonderful opportunity for you to re-assess priorities and perhaps try another path. Seriously.

Or maybe he started out with a ruthless bloodlust for destroying all competitors and slowly grew up. And retired and tried to do something useful.

And figured out that his MSFT business approach was counter-productive as far as bettering the world goes.

Hey, it could happen. Maybe.

No, those are tongue-in-cheek thought experiments.

What we have here is scientists using empirical data to project a range of future possible outcomes. No mythical creatures involved.

"I have 20 toxic chemicals in my body, and all I did today was take my medication, eat at Mcdonald's and smoke a cigarette.

Nosebleeds? Vomitting white foam? Blood pressure issues? Yea, I've got all of those too!"

Your support of truth, justice, and fossil fuel, fast food, tobacco, and pharmaceutical industries is noble, but I don't grok the long drawn-out suicide by torture thing.

Please consider making a healthy diet, breathing fresh air, and exercising a higher priority than trolling slashdot.

You nailed it. But our priorities are exactly the opposite. And by listing how the priorities should be, I'll upset people.

But here are a few ways we could encourage lower birth rates.

Birth control should be subsidized. Abortions, The Pill, hysterectomies, and vasectomies should be free.

There should be an annual tax on the biological father and biological mother for each child they bring into the world. Child Tax Credits only apply to adopted/foster kids.

Conceiving and bearing a child while on welfare should disqualify the familty from welfare.

If it's worth doing, it's worth doing for money.
