A place with lowest population

Pitcairn Islands is the world's least populated country with just 48 people.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pitcairn_Islands

I wonder how they live.

Among these I found out that there are;

a mayor
farmers
fishermen
craftsmen
handicrafts
beekeepers
tourism operators / hotels etc
a pastor
a teacher

Probably people there are Jack's of all trades, but I have not yet found out that there are any doctors.

I wonder if it could it be the place of opportunities.

hi Coudy, how are you??

funny you post this, cause i am a bit obsessed with this story and islands like this.. i just watched a doco on it recently.. there are quite a few islands like this.. major stories of rape of minors too.. was that Pitcairn?? somewhere like that.. they had to have a judge from Britain come over and have a trial.. older men of the island were raping the young girls when they got to a certain age, and it was accepted as cultural for many years.. not cool at all.

Hi Ribbon, I'm fine thanks, hope you are ok too ........ all kritters as well.

The rape story was in Pitcairn yes.

But I guess being just 48, they got to have an understanding on how to share partners for sex, I mean they can't possibly be 24 pairs.

Population started off in 1790 with nine bounty hunters and six Tahitian men, 11 women and a baby, so they were 15 against 11, until the baby grew up [I assume]

At least they sell alcohol now. damned.gif

Quote:The once-strict moral codes, which prohibited dancing, public displays of affection, smoking, and consumption of alcohol, have been relaxed in recent years. Islanders and visitors no longer require a six-month licence to purchase, import, and consume alcohol.[44] There is now one licensed cafe and bar on the island, and the Government Store sells alcohol and cigarettes.
