We are a country of 1.3 billion people and are on our way to beat even the Chinese by 2022. This may not hit us now, but it should. From finding a date to getting some privacy, from booking a table in a local diner to getting a seat in a public toilet, it’s all going to get more difficult. To put it more accurately, nearly impossible!

Because more population only means less opportunities. Don’t believe us? Watch this video to see how our lives are going to change, and not for good. Guys, fasten your seatbelts and brace yourself for the population apocalypse!
