Only slightly off-topic - a population of skinny people disappear
because when the famine comes, there's no reserves.
A population of overweight people disappear because they can't run
away from, nor hunt down, predators.

All populations have fat and skinny people as a result. Is it
possible that all populations have idealistics and cynics, self-
centered jerks and magnanimous angels ... right and left wingers?

Thanks,

Brian
