jackscarab: (Hmm.)
The population of Japan increasingly becoming elderly, and of impressive health into its extended longevity, is not a surprise.

The statistically concerning lack of babies to replace them, however, is.

Their demographic situation is such that:

Japanese researchers have now warned of a doomsday scenario if it carries on this way with the last child to be born there in 3011 and the Japanese people potentially disappearing a few generations later.


I suppose that is the price of extreme homogeneity. Luckily, they have about a thousand years to solve it with a lot of sex, even if they must eventually do it with foreigners.

The article suggests some possible reasons for the lack of human mating over there. It does not mention the robotic butt, yet it ought to, since "some suggest many young Japanese people prefer "virtual" friends with a robot or on the internet."

Which makes me wonder: Wait, they already have robot friends over there? Not just "robot friends" wink-wink, but automaton companions?

Get with the program, United States!
