You remind me of my wife:

Me: Marry me!?!?
Her: Serious? (+ stink eye)
Me: Marry me!
Her: You serious? (+ more stink eye)
Me: Yes, marry me!
Her: Are you serious? (looking for the camera)
Me: I am.
Her: You can't be serious?
Me: [nothing - contemplate running]
Her: Seriously?

I never thought to see this. My world view is undermined. Next it will be an Ibanez Jem.
Beyond a critical point within a finite space, freedom diminishes as numbers increase. This is as true of humans as it is of gas molecules in a sealed flask. The human question is not how many can possibly survive within the system, but what kind of existence is possible for those who so survive.
