Spectra

Don't you just love learning about IR, MS, and NMR? Kidding.

The good: Our race, at least in this country, may perpetuate itself after all instead of killing future taxpayers. Biology vs. careers: biology always wins.

The bad: Certain clinics are reusing needles. This transmits diseases such as hepatitis more easily.

The ugly: A certain country is going down the drain. Nota bene: bad economy, juvenile thugs, possibly-incapacitated public servants, incapacitated public service, and more juvenile thugs.

Without even clicking links, I'm going to guess bet you're talking about that crown cesspool of the British Crown, merry old England.

The missionary clinic overseas used to re-use needles. They were *supposedly* sterilised in between people, but we stopped going there after a while anyway. ::shudder::

Meanwhile there are nearly 7 billion human beings on this planet.

So somehow we as a species are in danger of not reproducing ourselves?

Absolutely right, EC.

Anonymous, we were created on earth to be fruitful and multiply. With the replacement rate (2 children per couple to keep the population steady) well below 1 in many countries, the population grows progressively older, with the fewer young having to support more, older parents and grandparents. I don't know about you, but I think it should be the other way around. Also, I said nothing about extinction, only about the point I just made.
