The weekend taught me that there are far too many people in the world. The places I visited were swarming with tourists and worse, screeching brats. While I am not a fan of segregationist policies I would wholly back a scheme where places were required by law to display whether their premises allowed screeching children. I don't know what it is about them but they always seem to get my back up.

I discussed, tongue in cheek, my plans, should I ever become supreme ruler of the Earth, of how the overcrowding of the planet could be resolved by the application of a voluntary cull. It would work by accepting applications from the populace to take part in a cull. The incentive would be that for a week, volunteers would be allowed to live in the lap of luxury. Fulfilling every whim and desire. Their payment for the reward? To be culled. Then, as a thank you for their sacrifice each volunteer would have their name forever engraved into a monument marking their contribution to society.

Of course I will not become supreme ruler of the Earth. So the cull would not take place. Instead we must look forward to severe over crowding, draining of resources, world poverty for the many and much worse.

I've been very gloomy of late. I suspect it is something to do with lack of things to occupy my mind.

Tourists were something we didn't really consider before moving to Ashbourne. Because, well, we've always lived round here - and Ashbourne was just that place a bit north of where we already lived, where I used to get twatted on Sundays smoking Indian circles and doing magic mushrooms in my mate's back yard.

Seems that Other People see our rather nice little town as a tourist attraction, however. This leads to huge traffic jams on a weekend as they flood in to stare and point at the trees and the fields and the Ashbourne.

It does mean we can grumble like locals now, though - usually along the lines of "get off the bloody roads! Ah'm only trying to get to the bloody shops! Ah bloody live here - you don't. Tsk...."

Which, if I'm honest, is it's own reward. ;D
