Teen moms and recessions
 
Why it happens? Is it a natural law to reproduce people when humankind is in danger?

- weather.com

However it is unethical to compare people to rats, but according to studies when rats' population is divides, and one part experiences higher death rate, another patr starts to reproduce faster. It can't be explained from point of view of known to the science communications, but it works. Something similar can be with humans...

Do you mean quality of manufacturing? :eek:

It can be true, if they are designed and SIMed on computers. :D

No, but that's an interesting point. Failure rate "in the field" as it were.:D

What I meant was that teens aren't buying (using) condoms in some countries.

How do these data correlate with overall birthrates in these countries? And the teen birthrates in North Africa, Central America, Southeast Asia?

Really, the differences aren't as dramatic as the rather misleading axes would suggest. These are all basically Western cultures (even modern Japan in many respects). If we plot the norm for these countries (teens not giving birth) per 1000, following their numbering system, the chart looks not so skewed.

Right, and Western civilization is in crysis. That's why I am thinking about natural compensatory mechanizm.

If you haven't seen Mike Judge's "Idiocracy," run right out and get it.

I doubt it's a compensation as much as a product of having less money. Going out is expensive, staying in and "entertaining" is cheap.

I thought online forums and chats replaced "going out", no?
