    What a joke

    I know Sammy J to have a show that my iView gives me, but as yet I've not chosen to watch him. And well, your question @fliptopia, made me consider Tony Abbott for the satire ... and then scruffy1 posts ... I don't know, there's just no pleasing everyone is there ? :D

    Have to argue against that. IMO this one is, and also relevant to the thread subject:

    What a joke

    But who would satirise the news for me if Micallef's in power? Sammy J?

    Careful, SNL might do just that It's an interesting comment upon the Ukraine in general since the Bloc fell apart. It was always a State that had a very cosy relationship with Moscow in many way but after the wall fell Ukraine certainly went its own way. They happened to have a big chunk of the USSR's military production including particularly Antonov which is now an independent Ukrainian business, plus tank manufacturing with their own models and other useful industries. Of course it is also the site of Chernobyl. It'll be interesting to see if a comedian can stand up as it were to Putin Cheers

    Given the Ukraine's current happenings, maybe Alec Baldwin should put his name up for 2020 elections ... https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-04-22/ukraine-presidential-election-comedian-landslide-victory/11034874

    'Need' would be a much smaller number it would depend on the type of civilization that you want a city of a few hundred would be enough to be self sustaining but if you want technology, then you would want millions of citizens

    And there are lots who do escape and don't bemoan the lacks you cite The sea / tree change phenomenon is a construct designed to get people out ( a bit at least ) from the city centres. Instead of enjoying the space the growing community needs to fill it with 'things' to keep the kids off the streets, and to give employment to those so as to continue to survive out of the city. It's a fucking catch-22 . and so it grows / goes. Humanity is like a cancerous growth on this planet ... but, me, I'm just here cos my folks fucked up .

    If the people still choose to live in cities rather than the country, and the cities are quite obviously overpopulated, then we still have enough people. How many people does the Earth require to be considered 'not enough'. Scientifically, I would say that would be at the point where the species declines unintentionally towards possible extinction. I can't see that happening any time soon.

    So many pithy quotes on opinions Walt. I'll settle for "Your opinion is not my reality." Of course this opinion does concern possibly the most self-opinionated President ever, one whose grasp upon reality is tenuous on a good day. Cheers

    I'm only asking about the *need* part. Even would we be better off with more or less or the same number. The whether we can support more easily or not is important, sure but less philosophical and more about practicalities of space and sustenance, I think. As far as capital cities go, that is where people migrate. People move there for the jobs and businesses make jobs there because of the pool of potential workers. If working from home 3 or 4 days a week became the norm it might change for more regional centres for work. I know a lot of people want to get out of major cities (although lots of them then bemoan the lack of restaurants, entertainment and other services they have when they get out).

    My father in law passed away on the 18th April (3 days ago) and we all watched him go (at home). We watched as he talked to his dead mum and his Long dead little brother (his brother died at age 6 in 1950). We're all pretty convinced there is "something after" you leave this mortal coil. RIP Robin Holmes <--- Yes his parents must've had a sense of humour ! Personally I don't believe we spend all our lives learning this shit just for it all to end and that's it. The End. I've spent my entire life learning this stuff now I'm ready to start living !

    get out of the capital cities and try telling me we are even close to being over populated
  20. To get them as far as the regularly clocked full power equivalent? I wonder if these lower powered parts were just unable to perform at full clock speed and this was a way to sell them.

    But do we still need more people? I'd suggest we are getting them anyway... Do we have to wait til we are at or near maximum capacity to say we have enough people?

    Opinions are like aresholes everybodys got one, and some are a lot smellier than others.

    Indeed it is, Newt. Personally, I'm of the opinion that point is just about where miscarriage becomes 'premature birth' - ie: it has even a chance of surviving outside of the womb. Thankfully, the decision is not mine to make, and never will be. A large proportion of the women I've known who have had an abortion either regret it completely, or suffer a large amount of remorse. A large portion of those who probably should have considered it, but went ahead with the pregnancy because of beliefs, have *also* had regrets and/or remorse, though. The choice is obviously not one to be made lightly.

    This came out a few days ago and has just appeared in my suggested list. Shows some angles of the workshop that you don't usually see.

    Hmm, I'd been working on a post of damning extracts from the report to illustrate Mueller's most probable intent but Bloomberg beat me to it: https://www.bloomberg.com/amp/opinion/articles/2019-04-19/mueller-report-strongly-hints-that-trump-s-guilty?utm_source=quora&amp;utm_medium=referral An opinion piece yes, but with key report extracts that go straight to the point.
