So, some peckerhead disputed one of my posts about crop production and world population. It’s fascinating, because the peckerhead didn’t bother to read the post in its entirety. He sourced the same source I sourced for the data. Apparently, he, or she, assumes people are too stupid to actually run the numbers. Because of his brazen stupidity, I wondered if I hadn’t gotten something wrong. So, through some effort, I re-ran the numbers. I looked for different numbers.

We need to ensure the bastards removed who would seek to alter this course. This is one of humanity’s greatest works in progress, guard it jealously!!!
