Thanks again.

 

Now that I live in the US the UK feels unimaginably crowded - the idea that you can't just build a road that's 6 lanes wide, that there isn't enough parking, that there are areas you can't build houses on - but it's all relative.

 

The population density of the UK is fairly high, it features in top 50 for the world, which includes places like the vatican and Monaco.  Briefly looking into this I was surprised at how densely populated India is - I always thought there was so much space - then again over a billion people is quite a lot...

We're only like 3.5 people per square km. So we have tons of room.

Jaundice seems to be very common with premature babies. My eldest (she's almost 17 now) was born 6 weeks premature and she had jaundice as well. She was on a drip for 2 weeks which flushed it out of her. After that, once she was feeding ok, they told us there was nothing to worry about. She is now one of the cleverest kids I've ever known, blowing to bits those rumours that premature kids will never be as bright as a full term kid.

Have you got room for 16 million terrified Remain voters?

You can have all of Nunavut, in fact.

She had to go into hospital for two days because she was jaundiced, but back home now. Was fairly stressful, very glad to have family home.

The U.K. does feel very crowded, but in a good way.

 

Great to hear :)  I was talking to a kid at the library I work at recently, who had some sort of jaundice-type condition as a baby. She said to me "when I was born I was a Simpson". 

 

The UK might "feel" crowded - especially in rush hour in London or something - but people always say it's overpopulated and I'm not buying it. People have been saying it for hundreds of years. Malthus wrote in 1798 that because of "overpopulation" we'd all starve, there's now 6 times more people in the UK than there was then and obesity is a far bigger problem than hunger. 

 

My girlfriend was "born a Simpson" as well. 

 

Overpopulation can be somewhat subjective.

I just think that people have always said it. They've been saying it for hundreds of years. In America people campaign against immigration and they've got tons of room.

It depends.  A greater population means greater chance of job creation, especially if those coming in are prime working age, as opposed to an aging population.  Unemployment in the United States is also a the lowest/equal level to before the financial crash (Q3 '07), so the statistics certainly support job creation and growth.

 

Like everything it is industry and geo-specific - there are areas and industries which are booming and vice versa.

Oh man, what an internal conflict that is for me. I'm split three ways: German land thieves on my mums side, Native's displaced by the former on my dad's mums side, and refugee invaders on my dads dads side. 

 

FUUUUUUUUU

Agreed. It's also often forgotten that immigration trends largely follow (and mirror) employment trends. Roughly speaking, when the economy is doing well and there are jobs available, immigration goes up, and when there's a crash and unemployment goes up, immigration falls. When you think about it it makes perfect sense. Nobody leaves their home, their family and friends and tries to make a new life for themselves in a new land if they don't think they're going to be able to get a job. No point emigrating somewhere with high unemployment, is there? (Also worth noting here that migrants tend to be better educated & skilled than host populations. They're certainly not "stealing jobs" from the kind of knuckle-dragging morons that complain about foreigners all the time.)

Thanks Woodster. I like pyro, although maybe Pyra because she's a girl.
