So if the economy is bad, then elective medical procedures go down. One popular type of elective medical procedure is plastic surgery. Without plastic surgery, people who need plastic surgery to attract a mate may not be able to and thus may not procreate. So just when you thought nothing good came from the bad economy, think again!
May not be worth it, though, huh? I mean after all, the economy probably isn't so bad that people can't afford allergy medication, and that's another gene pool dilution device. Just something to think about!
