pope urges youth to remain chaste. (noticeably absent is a similar directive to priests.)

woohoo! i may be around for the end! my parents, who've made it clear how outraged they are about the impending SUV tax, probably won't.

plane tickets to Kashmir: $500
ski equipment rental: $20
tour guide: $10
gondola tickets: $3
artillery fire missing the chairlift by an "uncomfortable margin": priceless.

Man- that sucks about everything dying- but it would be pretty cool to be around for what amounts to an Apocalypse.

ah. more decontextualized european america-hating!

It takes 12.2 hectares of land to support each American citizen and 6.29 for each Briton, while the figure for Burundi is just half a hectare.

Let's see.

US land area = 10m km^2. population = 300m
UK land area = 250k sq km^2, population = 60m

So the US has eight times the land per person that the UK has. Even if we use twice the land per person, we're still at a four to one advantage - and that's why the US *exports* food, while the UK *imports* it.

By and large, western agriculture is rather efficient. The market has forced it so. The main inefficiencies can be traced back to government farm/water/road subsidies, which encourage people to burn extra gas to build roads that no one drives on to bring water where it evaporates to grow crops no one's gonna eat.

One also might note that the average third world country (such as Brazil is relying on non-renewable agricultural technologies, such as slash-and-burn. they may only use an acre per person, but it's got to be a different acre every five years.

Which is why I think that instead of sniffling about what Americans are doing, people should start shipping combine harvesters and fertilizer plant plans down to Brazil. Trying to do things right beats whining about other people doing things imperfectly.
