** The [[Literature/MakeRoomMakeRoom book]] is just as bad. The world population in the book? Seven billion. One would think that the 35,000,000 people living in New York City would spread out.

** The [[Literature/MakeRoomMakeRoom book]] is just as bad. The world population in the book? Seven billion. One would think that the 35,000,000 people living in New York City would spread out. Not to mention that the ''current'' world population is estimated at 7.4 billion, and the US still has such a food surplus that it's routinely thrown out to make room for fresher ingredients.

[[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture The year is 2022]]. Overpopulation has brought [[GaiasLament environmental]] and [[FallenStatesOfAmerica economic collapse.]] In [[BigApplesauce New York City]], pop. ''40,000,000'' (its current population is about 8 million, not much higher than in 1970), police detective Thorn (Heston) is investigating the burglary-turned-murder of wealthy businessman William Simonson (Joseph Cotten), a board member of the food rations manufacturer [[PeaceAndLoveIncorporated Soylent Corporation]]. Based on the fact that there were [[KleptomaniacHero valuable food and books left for him to steal]], and that his bodyguard Fielding (Chuck Connors) and [[HookerWithAHeartOfGold 'furniture']] Shirl (Leigh Taylor-Young) were conveniently away at the time, Thorn believes it to be an assassination. He gives Simonson's oceanographic survey (which he himself stole) to his roommate Sol Roth (Creator/EdwardGRobinson), a book collector, and they have a memorable scene cooking up the food he also stole from the late Mr. Simonson.
