Canadians smoke the competition
Are we really the world’s No. 1 potheads?

Please refrain from procreating
The fastest way to a greener planet? Some think a ban on procreation is simplest and best

"because our activities now threaten our survival, or because the weight of humanity — all 6.5 billion planet-eating, carbon-spewing individuals"
"The Church of Euthanasia, for one, is proud to trumpet its four "pillars": abortion, suicide, cannibalism and sodomy. (By the last it means merely whatever form of non-procreational sex appeals to you.) "
>> Brilliant! I dont’ know about cannabalism, but I’m down with the other 3.. well.. hold on.. don’t take the ‘sodomy’ one as.. look I’m not talking about bum love and me in this article but I believe I’ve written about the rise of gays as the situation worsens. I swear to you that there truly are more homosexuals not because it’s less of sin in this day and age but because it makes sense, it’s an internal pull to STOP the madness (or at least reproducing). back to the article..
"If a gender-neutral one-child policy began tomorrow, our numbers at mid-century, currently projected to rise to nine billion, would drop to 4.5 billion. By 2075, we would have reduced our presence by almost half, down to 3.4 billion, and "our impact by much more, because so much of what we do is magnified by chain reactions we set off through the ecosystem." Keep it up for a century, and by 2100 our 1.6 billion descendants would be suffused with "the growing joy of watching the world daily become more wonderful."
>> What a wonderful world this would be. There, THERE lies the solution. STOP FUCKIN’ FUCKING. I’ve been saying this for.. how many years now?? ARGH.. okay.. u can fuck.. but just,
NO more babies.. or if you must.. ONE.. just one.. *sigh* then there’s twins and triplets.. well whatever.. I’ll deal with that by not having any. That should help to balance it out, me and a few close friends will just NOT reproduce and.. we’ll call it even.. things should average out haha.
Now I know, I know there’s always those selfish people who scream "what about me!?" "What about my right to choose?!" And they cry invain because they feel I’ve stolen something they were born to have – right out of their grubby hands. But I haven’t, think of it reasonably. Everyone has a child to create happiness. Having a child is meant to be a selfless act, the number one priority should be the rights, thoughts, dreams, and happiness of the child. If happiness is paramount then … try to wrap your head around this. By having 5 children that’s 5 more mouths to feed, or more to the point – mouths that need water. In the next 50 years or less it’s estimated that what 1/4 – 1/3 of the world (mostly Asia) will have no.. I repeat, NO drinking water. Keeping this mind, what kindof a life can your offspring or anyone else’s hope to have? How happy can you be if you don’t even have water to drink?? What kindof a life is that?
The choice is simple – there is no choice. You think of humanity as a whole and do what’s right for the greater good. OR you act selfishly and die knowing you left the world with even more problems than before and your children and grand children to bear the grunt of it – Nice.
Give it a thought…
