Chavs - will they survive evolution?

Fake as hell but funny.

In reply to the thread title. At the rate they're currently reproducing, like rats, they'll take over the UK in about 2 decades and outlive us all.

At least rats are cute (ish) and this one can even cook


and i'm not talking about food from Iceland either.

Most of them already have mate. It's too late, we're all doomed to wear dirty tracksuits, baseball caps, and Elizabeth Duke jewellery.

Cheers for that! If that's what my kids have to look forward to I think I'll take the Magda Goebbels route.

Reminded me of an incident in NI about '76 or '77 young subbie on patrol in Portadown noticed a small fire at the back of a shop. "Woolworths??" if my memory isn't too fuddled, anyway he took one almighty swing with his SLR to try and break the window.

Now, plate glass is very flexible and the rebound of the window knocked him half way across the road, where he ended up on his arrse. Of course we didn't laugh did we. No we fcukin howled.

Chavs are the next stage in human evolution - they're breeding, they live off others to conserve energy and breed more, they store fat so will survive famines.

I've seen the future. It's called Wayne and it's nicked my video.

Due to the size of the human race and the rate of reproduction genetic variation is ocurring faster than ever. For example Chinese people now how far different metabolic pathways to us, and are for the most part lactose intolerant. I.e. bring them over here and give them our diet and they wouldn't cope. Read it in The Week a few months back, shall have a look for a linky later.

Not quite. It's a genetic predisposition to a shortage of lactase, which is the enzyme that breaks down lactose. True, if you get too much lactose building up you tend to be more likely to suffer lactose intolerance, but it's not an automatic connection. The Jade Dream can't get enough of Philadelphia and the weans take milk by the glassful. Chinese folk also just seem to love ice cream.

But I'd agree to an extent that since each act of reproduction involves genetic mixing, there's change occurring. Whether that means enough of a change over time to constitute 'evolution' is another question.

And since this is the NAAFI, we should gas the bastards before they can breed. You wouldn't wait for mosquitoes to die of old age, would you?

The old story was that around the time agriculture started to replace hunting and gathering as a way of life for human beings, biological evolution faded into insignificance because it was so much slower. There’s hardly been enough time – only about 10,000 years or so – for human biology to have changed enough so’s you’d notice.

Not so, as studies of the human genome are demonstrating. When people began domesticating animals, planting crops, and living in settled communities, they created environments for themselves quite different from any environments the human species had occupied before, and natural selection proceeded, as it always does, to favor survival and reproductive success for individuals who were, by chance, better adapted to those environments.

The marquee example is retaining the ability to digest milk into adulthood, which is nearly universal among people of European descent, and quite rare elsewhere.

The paper the blog is based on is a really neat bit of work... In it they reporting on recent-evolution as in things that happened since the Late Pleistocene. This is recent as in the last 40 000 y before present. Not as in over the last few hundred years....

I work on evolutionary biology, and there is a fair bun-fight going on as to whether humans are still evolving (as in today). For my part, I think it has slowed to a crawl, simply because we are able to control so many aspects of our biology (reproduction) and possible sources of mortality. However, exposing ourselves to novel sources of selection (pollution, diet, mobile phones, big-brother) might be pushing humans down novel evolutionary avenues but it is unlikely to be anything like those selection pressures induced by glaciations/sabre-tooth tigers/domestication of farm animals/the spread of humans into new continents. However, the new genetic tools (like those used in the paper described above) keep surprising us, and who knows? Maybe there is positive selection for track-suits, crap gold jewellery and god-awful tv?

They'll only survive until the 'point of no return', when the intelligent and hard-working people that contribute to society are unable to support the massive numbers of chavs dragging the welfare state under by sheer weight of support they need for being obese/alcoholic/mentally unstable/inbred/chain smoking/victims+perpetrators of crime/welfare spongers/debtors.

At which point, the collapse of the welfare state will mean that millions of chavs will suffer a long slow death from one or more of the above.

I can't wait.

But until then, I'm building a castle out in the countryside for a) a good view and b) personal protection from the hordes of chavs acting like the zombies in 28 days later.

Personally I think we should give chavs more knives. All the stabbings we hear about? Natural selection. Then which ever gang is left last, we'll just capture and place in zoo.
