Default This is a SCARRRRRY Thought!

I was watching a program on television the other night. A good portion of the program was about India. Something the narrator said truly staggered me. He said, "40% of India's 1,147,995,904 population is under the age of 15 years old". India has the second largest population per country in the world.

You just think about that for a moment, 40% of the population is under the age of 15.........................you want to talk about a population explosion in the next 10 years or so. India can't support it's self as it stands for the most part, what the heck is it going to do with 2,3,4 or 5 billion more people inside it's boarders? China at least with it's 1,330,044,544 people knows enough to put a limit on the number a babies that can be born per couple.

We've all heard the saying by movie production companies, such n' such movie will be coming to a theater near you soon. Well, the East Indians will be coming to be your neighbor soon.

I know in my circle we have talked about a world war which involved China or a war against China. If India could afford to manufacture the cheap knock off Russian guns that they currently are in the numbers that they would need............crips we best start figuring on how to kill a thousand with one bullet or otherwise they could decimate countries like locus wiping out farm field after farm field!

Another interesting one.

I was at an insurance seminar.. right before I fell asleep the speaker was talking about the elderly population and broke out this one.

- Half of all the people that have lived to the ripe old age of 70... ever . Are alive right now.

I believe it too. Its not too unusual to see an eldely person here or in europe, but if you live 45 in places like the congo... your an old man... You do the stats and thats a very real stat. My grandparents died in thier late 60's and I thought they were old!

The first two was a no-brainer, but the third one was a little bit of a surprise.

i wonder what the stats look like of population per person per square mile of land by country (or something that compares number of people to size of the country). the order of countries by size is russia, canada, USA, china, brazil.

All of the growth expected in the US the next 15 years - which could be as much as 40% more people - will be from immigrants or children of immigrants. without immigration we would have a declining population like most European countries. What the heck is wrong with all these young studs with earrings hats on backwards and and shaved heads. Did they forget how to reproduce. Or are they too busy creating new financial investment products.

Unlike India, we do not allow children to work before they are certain age, in most of the third countries, they work and bring home a pay check at 9 years. ;?
Not that the trash who collect welfare for each kid aren't trying their best.
Oh and we might catch up if people like that Octo-Mom has their way.



The real scary thing is that our education system is far behind Asia. India has more students in honor roll than we have kids.

Yeah India might have more kids in honor roll, but they have a hell of alot more kids eating out of trashcans with no education. Ever heard of the caste system?
