The son, in his late teens, was spoiled and idle. The father correctly inferred that evicting him and forcing him to earn his own way would benefit him, however unpleasant it would be at first. When the son found a job and had worked at it for a while, he understood how his father’s actions had made his life more respectable and constructive, therefore he thanked his father.

When each place hit 1 billion population

In hell everyone is punished by being forced to eat with chopsticks that are three feet long. Everyone in hell is angry and starving because they can not pick up the food and can not get it into their mouths. In heaven everyone is gifted with three foot long chopsticks and they are all happy and full. How come?

In Heaven each person would use their 6 foot chopsticks to pick up some food and feed the person opposite them. In return, the person opposite would do the same back.

Both individuals get fed. However, in hell the people are selfishly trying to use their own chopsticks to feed themselves. That’s why they are hungry.
