When the technology for twisting to other probability patterns was developed, a grateful Earth solved its overcrowding by sending people to live on Earths where plants and animals never got started. Each family could have its own planet, because there was an infinite number of such alt-Earths available, and the computers never assigned the same one twice. Trouble was - someone else had the same idea!

Isn't it just like Asimov to take an idea that's WAAAY out there and somehow make it seem like no big deal to the reader?
This is one of Asimov's short stories that is about the human race using alternate realities/timelines in order to solve its overpopulation problem.
What could possibly go wrong?!
