Space exploration could solve that .. colonization on other planets.

Here's an interesting TV episode on 'what if' world's the population were smaller.


LOL, that will take 100s of years, if not 1000s. We've got a much shorter timeframe than that to head of extinction.

That would help for a couple of decades at best. A super flu wiped out half the population of Europe 400 years ago, and yet here we are. Ditto for WW1 and the Spanish flu.

We haven't 'nothin' yet. Once AI gets more sophisticated to the point of replacing highly skilled professions - like doctors and engineers - and robots will perform perfect human tasks - the joblessness, homelessness, and amount of people in and below poverty will skyrocket, which in turn will drastically spike property crime, petty theft, and black-markets. Unless, of course, the economy is drastically altered to accommodate for these impending waves of human obsolescence with a 're-educate, re-employ, public salary' system, whereby it's compulsory for local, state, or federal government to intervene.

Real estate. The robots won't own that! Then you and all your future generations can live together in that 1000sq ft house for all of eternity.

On the other hand, he's wrong, wrapping race, gender, etc., into that. If you talk to most non-straight-white-males, they'd say that relations are the best they've ever been in this country. Straight white men, though, think we've never been more divided on those fronts.

I think you'll need to provide some links to some stats their son.

We live in very difficult and strange times. In a period where people shout about injustices and equality, their true message is that of hatred towards the other side.

I hope at some point, the yelling stops, and the fixing begins.....I always come back to this idea that somewhere along the way we are now UNABLE to be ok with someone else's point of view and just take the stance that because you don't agree with me you hate me - so I hate you.

I think MLK Jr is rolling in his grave.

The Trumpistas shout at the libtards, and the libtards shout back at the Trumpistas, meanwhile the rich elites laugh at both groups while sucking up all the money and changing government to enrich themselves further while screwing the rest of us over.

Seems like a perfect time for this shameless plug:

The New Human Rights Movement: Reinventing the Economy to End Oppression

You'll never fix the economic system until you fix the political system. There's no incentive for laws or change to benefit the common person when it's making so much money for corporations and elites, and the people making the laws rely on rich people to get reelected.

Certainly you've read this.

"A proposed policy change with low support among economically elite Americans (one-out-of-five in favour) is adopted only about 18% of the time," they write, "while a proposed change with high support (four-out-of-five in favour) is adopted about 45% of the time."
On the other hand:
When a majority of citizens disagrees with economic elites and/or with organised interests, they generally lose. Moreover, because of the strong status quo bias built into the US political system, even when fairly large majorities of Americans favour policy change, they generally do not get it.

You're totally out of subject, perhaps you should check out first who wrote it and why, then you'd understand a thing or 2 about your argument being a complete non-sequitur.

You'll need to explain what you mean, because the two are completely related, and you won't get very far "reinventing the economy" without changing the way government runs it. And you won't do that unless you can change the way we fund out elections.

A Decade Later: Does the Q6600 Still Have Game in 2017?

Excellent article. They compare a Q6600, i3 6100, i5 2500K, and i7 6700K, among others. I'm still running an i5 2500K, so it's good to see that I'm not losing too much sticking with it. That being said, I'd be getting a 20%-30% boost in frame rate if I upgraded. Interesting that Warhammer showed the least improvement with a modern CPU. If anything was CPU limited, I would have thought that would be the game, but shooters showed a bigger delta.

the end of the world has been predicted since the dawn of man, glad to see the denizens of bluesnews have finally caught up.

Things had been getting better until a few decades ago. Trends are currently in the other direction, like that story the other day about how millennials are making 20% less than their parents at the same point.

And it all stems back to Reagan's tax cuts. Middle class grew when the upper class was heavily taxed, has shrunk back to where it was in the 30s when those taxes were drastically reduced.

I keep beating that horse, yet some people still refuse to admit there's a very direct correlation between how much those at the top are allowed to keep and how much everyone else takes home.

Combine all that cash with the way we fund elections, and it's no doubt that things are so heavily tipped in favor of large corporations and the top 1% of wage earners.
