I’ve been thinking about SEVEN BILLION people

Standard

Apparently, the world’s population has just tipped over seven billion. Now, that’s a LOT of people.

The BBC has a nifty little app to help you understand where YOU fit in at this momentous time. According to this app there were 4,750,722,928 people alive on the day I was born. It is nice to know that although I may never be the oldest person on Earth, I was once the youngest.
