    Yes, this is an actual headline from a news story on one of Australia's main news sites:

    Source: http://www.news.com.au/story/0,27574,25365017-401,00.html

    From time to time you come across a news story that is so outrageous, it is required posting. This is one of those stories.

    BTW for those interested in discussing the merits, the original source of the story appears to be the Sun in the UK, a tabloid, but the article's scientific content appears to come from a study published in a real journal. The copy as ridiculous and misleading as it is though, is all news.com.au! :D

    That's all you need say - the Sun is not a serious newspaper - it is a scandal sheet and has the worst of the worst - at its best, it is soft porn for morons!! :scowl:

    I would be truly embarassed if anybody I knew, read the Sun! :meh:

    Someone I imagine you typing this while smoking your pipe in your Barbour jacket strolling through the hills reading your copy of the Guardian.

    This article is absolutely true. I will eat anything you put in front of me after indulging in a big, old fatty.

    GMILFs, my friend. The squeaking of artificial joints only contributes to the music of love.

    Sure it makes a little sense...

    After all hamburgers alone contribute more to global warming than SUVs. (Think shipping, cooking, packaging, refrigerating, cow methane, processing...)

    but I put more stock in the exponential growth of the human population...

    Humanism has it right, limit reproduction and everyone will lead better lives. Of course since people are an expendable resource for use by governments in war and manufacturing we are going to multiply until like the rabbits we all starve.
     
  17. The Sun "newspaper" has words in it ?

    Oh my, that was lewd.
     
  19. This should be fascinating...

    Exactly who decides on the limit? The Government?

    Eh?
    Self-regulation I guess.

    It happens through epidemics, widespread bad health, violent leaders, starvation. Anything we can find, really.

    Eating yourself to death is definitely an improvement over the black plague.
