World Population To Hit 7 Billion By 2012
The world's population will reach 7 billion in 2012, even as the global community struggles to satisfy its appetite for natural resources, according to a new government projection. There are 6.7 billion people in the world today. The United States ranks third, with 304 million, behind China and India, according to projections released Thursday by the Census Bureau. The world's population surpassed 6 billion in 1999, meaning it will take only 13 years to add a billion people.

What we need is another world war. That way we can get rid of millions of men, and 100's of millions of women and children. Just doing my part to help the world... ;)

It is my dream in life to be perpetually pregnant until menopause kicks in. I'll just buy up some acreage and let the kids roam free in the pasture.

If things get really bad, we should eat the Duggars. Starting with the youngest.
