    I recently deleted a very old Gmail account of mine (that I haven't used for years) and towards its completion a page popped up informing me about all the things I'd lose. A couple blogs on Blogger one of them being about sexism in the Vicar of Dibley (which was weird to read) and some other equality stuff.

    The cringe worthy thing was finding a couple stories on Google Docs about a couple called Susan and Roger with marital problems - I was really young.

    Who knows? A novel might be in the works a couple years from now.
    How young were you?

    I must've been about 13 or 14 years old. Shocking right?

    I don't think I'd have been mature enough at that age to write something like that, but I still don't think it's shocking. :lol:

    The worry with randomly killing people till we have 50 million left is that this population will likely represent the current one. This means that the vast majority will be completely uneducated and in no position to be, and infected with numerous diseases. In the first world, the economy would remain the same and within a couple of hundred years we'll be in the same situation at the moment. It's extremely controversial but if we want to survive in a better world, the killing has to be selective.

    If anything, I was horrified by how many people were agreeing with me. Then again, this was the official Minecraft Forums of 2011 so it was probably full of young edgy teenagers.
