It’s A Small World

So, Earth is rapidly running out of resources and us humans are filling up all of the living space in dangerous levels of overpopulation. Sounds ominous…

However! There is a simple solution, and I put it to you thusly:

We simply genetically modify everyone’s babies so that they’re born as midgets. Imagine if everyone in the world were one quarter the size they are now –  just think of all the reductions in space, waste, and food consumption. And if everyone was the same small size, there wouldn’t be a problem with height discrimination! Score!

Desperate times call for desperate measures right? I’ll be here when the time comes for last ditch efforts to save humanity! (On a serious note for a second, I’m sure that probably is what it’ll come to – radical last-ditch solutions. Nothing will be done until disaster is on our doorstep and the only options left are drastic ones. I’m just glad I probably won’t be around to see them.)

Just a short one this evening (seewhatIdidthere!) I’m afraid – I’m in the middle of writing a story about the Chocalypse. Bye for now!

    Funny… I thought the same thing years ago.

    Make people 10 times smaller and the World effectively becomes 10 times bigger. 10 times more food and resources…

    …And your house-cat 10 times scarier!!!!!

    Hehe quite; imagine all the Fantastic Voyage style adventures you could have! ¬_¬

    The good thing about midget height is that things like pets would still be a decent relative size so they wouldn’t pose a problem.

    I’m only just over 5″… does that count as doing my bit to ensure the future of humankind…?
