If you could erase 99% of population.....Would you?


So, if you had a genetic timebomb, that would instantly erase 99% of the population in 1 shot, would you squeeze the trigger? Bear in mind it would effect all races and cultures equally and would still leave 70 million+ people to start over with? And most likely leave the planet a much more pleasant place to live.

    Again, I think we could figure it out with 3.5 million in USA alone. It would be like 70,000 per state. Enough to work hard.
