WHAT’S YOUR NUMBER?

November 16, 2011 § 1 Comment

In a couple of weeks, the population of the world will pass seven billion. That’s 7,000,000,000 people on the third rock from the sun.

BBC has a site where you can go, click in your birth date, and find out what number person you were on this planet.

The site tells me, based on my birth date, location and gender that:

  • I am the 2,513,525,838th person born among the 7 billion pop.
  • My life expectancy is 75.4 years (that will be in 2025 or so, for you “planners” out there).
  • I was the  75,616,463,538th person to have lived since history began.

A UN site with even more detailed info is here.

If you enjoy stats, this is a thought-provoking and entertaining way to see how you fit into this rapidly changing — and growing — world.

So how will this help you practice law? I have no idea. I just found it interesting.

    3,942,766,945th at birth and 78,230,666,439th since history began. Looks like I have a life expectency left of roughly the same amount of time I have already spent. Dang! Was hoping for more.

    I also found it interesting that in the USA every hour there are on average 484 births, 288 deaths and an additional 113 immigrants.
