  •  I actually kind of hope (0+ / 0-)

    that humanity renders itself
    extinct,
    if it can do it without
    destroying
    the rest of earth.

    I think
    the other species
    would be better off
    without us!

    I love my sons, and I know being a grandma would be fun, but I admit I'm kind of glad neither of them has reproduced at this point, even though I think they're the kind of people we need more of and would be better off with more of. I don't like to think of the kind of hell my potential grandchildren might face, given the hell my and my son's lives have already been, even now. (Though it might startle both of them a little to hear me describe their current lives as "hell." I don't think my older one, at least, would entirely disagree with me, however.)

    What I want to know is, who's going to pay for these crimes against humanity that those b@st@rds are perpetrating against the rest of us?

      all kinds of disasters,
      for 100,000 years or so.

      I think our species will still be around
      for at least another 100,000 years.

      Extinction sooner than that
      is almost as unlikely as
      endless opulence,
      similar to modern America,
      with no groups of humans left out,
      and no periods of history left out.

      Endless opulence,
      no.

      Extinction,
      no.

      Famine,
      yes.

      War,
      yes.

      Disease,
      yes.

      Famine in America by 2050: the post-peak oil American apocalypse.
