Illustrating Population Versus Land Mass

overpopulation

But there’s an important caveat: it takes a lot of land to support all those people. As Per Square Mile goes on to note, if everyone in the world required as much land to support them as Americans do, we would need four earths.

The point about supporting the population is the reality people don’t seem to consider. Being able to live on the land isn’t about the space your physical body needs to just stand in place.

Witch Hat Brooches

I found these on eBay. Kirk’s Folly turned out to be a company which has closed down this year. At least that’s how it looks to me. There were more Kirk’s Folly witch hats for sale on other eBay stores than their own website. The company was around for 35 so there are likely more witch hats to be found. I liked these.

Images of Abused Pets Make me Angry for Different Reasons

Capture

I don’ think I post any but I do see them pop up from others. They make me angry for different reasons. I don’t like them being used to create emotion in people, to solicit donations. What also makes me quite angry about them is the fact that there are people in dire straits who don’t get the same sympathy which dogs and cats do. Still, both dogs, cats and people are heavily over populated so some logical and practical part of me cares a lot more about the wild animals, native animals, who have no habitat because there are too many people with their pets who hog it all and continue to do so. Making it seem the wild non-pet animals are the ones who are in the way. Rant over, go back to fawning over your pets.
