Look Out - Here Comes 7 Billion!

Assuming that things stay pretty much the way they are right now (meaning we aren’t hit by an asteroid or a flu pandemic) the population of the world will reach 7 billion sometime around June 2011.

And if you divided all 7 billion into families of four, you could give them each a half acre of land and they would all fit in Texas with plenty of room to spare.

(Yes really - do the math and you'll see for yourself.)

Now that would be a sight to see.

Or squash them all into one square foot of living space and fit them all into China. Good thing they bulldozed all those historic neighborhoods in honor of the Olympics.
