Using your level of debating ability... one would extrapolate that people were exponentially more fertile in the past, prior to condoms being invented, since births were more common



Brah
Exponentially more people born today then in the Wild West era. And guess what... exponentially more mothers and their offspring survive it too.

births per capita

Kinda like

Quote:
  • In Abilene, Ellsworth, Wichita, Dodge City, and
    Caldwell, for the years from 1870 to 1885, there were only 45 total homicides. This equates to a rate of approximately 1 murder per 100,000 residents per year.
  • In Abilene, supposedly one of the wildest of the cow towns, not a single person was killed in 1869 or 1870.


2007

  • DC - 183 Murders (31 per 100,000 residents)
  • New York - 494 Murders (6 per 100,000 residents)
  • Baltimore - 281 Murders (45 per 100,000 residents)
  • Newark - 104 Murders (37 per 100,000 residents)

As least they don't have to worry about deportation from England, because they are already living in the convict nation............

That's because it was written for a British publication. It is not the sensational bullshit found in American tabloids, I mean newspapers. The perfect example of what I just said is the NY Post a few days ago showing the 58 year old man moments before his death.

Have you been living under a rock? Have you not seen/heard/absorbed via osmosis the hubub about British "news" publications hacking cell phones and emails of celebrities, average Joes and crime victims all in the name of putting a sensational story out there?

I could go on for many pages about crappy journalism in the US, but lets not pretend that we have the monopoly on it.

Where do u come up with this stuff?

Lol

Dude u may be already dead in the Wild West due to limitations of modern medicine.

Your wife may have not survived her first birth to her child.

You believe your child would be living now in the Wild West with the lack of medicine?

So talk about "safe" jonjon

You are the safest person jj. Lets not even talk about safe in Syria, Palestine,etc.

Safe !!!

Seriously?! Safe?!

safe.
