PCs, internet, TVs, cell phones, etc. are just the tip of the iceberg. There are literally billions of people chomping at the bit to have air conditioning, central heating, nice houses, lawn mowers, dishwashers, washing machines, cars. Fucking billions of them. What happens when those have-nots start getting, well, uppity, and the EU, USA, etc. has to give up all their nice shit so we can all live a nice, equal, grey concrete Soviet housing block type of life? Because there sure ain't enough stuff out there to give everybody what we've already got. Actually, grey concrete housing blocks are probably the best we can hope for, and only if everything goes absolutely swimmingly. It's going to get a lot uglier. I absolutely concur with your decision not to have kids, Thommo, and as much as I love mine I'd make the same decision if I had to do it over again.

But hey, I'll be dead by the time it all collapses, which is definitely a good thing. What? Me worry?
