Would a population boom now taking us to 9 billion people destroy the world as we know it ?
i agree completely but do you think it would be fair to ask of such a population- you can only have two kids now (it would be hard to impeach this and could probably cause a revolt /civil unrest). It would definitely even out the quality of life eventually if those very rich and very poor collaborated. do you think it would be wise to put a population cap on ? so we can find out how to deal with such a population and until we know how too, allow the population to build.

Do introverts make better leaders?
Today's society is very much lead by the people who shout and project their voices, the people who have every confidence in what they do even if it's bad , these people tend to be extroverts, but these people tend to be the people we follow, those with the out going personality. They get things going with noise and encouragement ect.. where introverts take a more quiet response perhaps delegating to people to what they do best, allowing them to work alone which could improve performance. This really does come down to the task at hand, extroverts may be better at teamwork brainstorming activities where conversation and communication would come at a more central role. where introverted may be good at addressing those one to one on a more personal level laying out a stratagy and sticking to it allowing people to get on with the task at hand.

Can and will books ever be replaced by something other than we know it today?
i think the book is knowledge , entertainment and a way of recording something. whether this be a thought or a fact, story or non-fiction. The book to me can't be replaced it's something which i would consider universal. if you are familiar with 'ghost in a shell' a manga- animated film the next step would be simply plug yourself in and absorb the information, much like the matrix, that presents the gain of this information as a surge or rush removing emotion, nothing to suspense that a real page turner gives. why would you want to simply quickly absorb something when you can cruise and savor something, it's like eating. there is a chance one day technology could take this leap... but i hope it doesn't.

If it would destroy a 10 year old boy to be called a girl, what are we teaching him about girls?
Maybe this all derives from the past gender roles, where women 'belonged' in the kitchen and men were 'supposed' to be the soul wage earner of the house hold which in turn gave men a position of power. These norms have been broken in today's society and there is less emphasis put on gender roles but there are some remnants of tradition. (Being ambiguous now...) To an extent being called a girl would mean that you were taking a position of lesser power and being called this would be an insult to your authority. on another note there was a huge emphasis on the contrast between gender and still is. Such rhymes as 'boys are made of slugs and snails and puppy dogs tails' which girls have been brought up to dislike. Oppositely 'girls are made of sugar and spice and all things nice' . I think gender stereotyping/labeling and self for filling prophesy also has a role to play in this. Excuse the film stereotype but dads want a baby boy who's going to become the high school star quarterback. When parents call their daughters 'their little princess'. It asks the question of upbringing, and how a vast gender stereotyping has caused two different cultures. do boys want to be their parents princess or their daughters be the quarter back? The insult is basically saying 'you're not what you've been brought up as' and that's a big thing for some one of that age.

Are the books we love being done justice with the films that proceed them ?
i know for sure that 'The Shining' by Steven King, the film plot wasn't true to the books. There is a different ending. i have to say i was a little disappointed. 'The Road' by Cormac McCarthy - stayed true to the original story, in the book there was very little speech which the created tension through out, a great read . The film on the other hand didn't ruin the story as the director kept true to the plot but i think he had (in order to entertain) added speech that , or because the film unlike the book didn't have chapters of description to create suspense between each tiny conversation. The film because of an attempt to make it more entertaining became more of a disappointment. Or maybe just put the book on a high horse.
