food for thought. [Feb. 7th, 2005|03:50 pm]
We Are The Universitards
Ok so I was talking in my government class and we got on the topic of one specific harvard study.

Harvard stated that the number of obease people in this country are increasing. There for causing life expectancy is slowly declining. Also the percentage of obease people in each generation is also increasing. This being said more and more people generation after generation are going to die of being fat. Now, this being said.

The harvard busness school also plugged this into their social security factor and found somthing shocking. If the trend continues as it is shown there will be no need to reform Social Security becuase by 2027 there will be so many people dying before retirement due to obeasity related illnesses that Social Security will not go bankrupt. The system is fixed. Thank Mcdonalds.

...just some food for thought (yes i know it is a bad pun)

Sorry i dont have figures or a website to back it up if u really want it i can ask my teacher twmarrow for ya.

That's slighty scary... but I do love how the world works.

One of the things that helps when massive tragedy strikes, like that of the tsnuami in Asia, is the fact that we as a population are becoming too large, and though loss of human life is always a tragedy, maybe it's just a way the world (or God, or whatever) has of keeping us in check and on the "right" path, whatever that may be.
