Democratic Congressman worries that Guam will "Tip Over and Capsize"


Democrat Rep. Hank Johnson worries: "my fear is that the whole island will become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize."

The Admiral responded by saying "We don't anticipate that." The Admiral noted that there are about 200,000 people living on the island. 25,000 of that total are U.S. Marines and their families. WIth 212 square miles or 135,680 square acres, that comes to about 1.47 people per square acre. Eliminating all the Marines and their families still will leave about 1.29 people per square acre.

Now, I've never been to Guam, but I don't think it's one of them floatin' islands. So, no matter how many people you put on it, it probably shouldn't tip over.
