Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Sunday, July 11, 2021

The following statement intrigued me enough that I copied and saved it shortly after coming across it online recently:

“The oil wells dried up in the Middle East, new ones popped up in China. Islam got real soft after that. Everyone did, actually.”

Unfortunately, I didn’t bother to take note of the source of this enigmatic quote. And it turns out to be yet another example of the ephemeral nature of the Web: There’s no trace of it, or even fragments of its text, online. I’m guessing I came across it either on or via Twitter, but there’s no sign of that now.

I’m guessing that whoever originally jotted this down took it offline, for whatever reason. Probably wasn’t counting on me preserving it for (some measure of) posterity. But a succinct description of geopolitical futurescapes is darn hard for me to resist, so there you have it.
