There Are Seven Billion People On Earth… Errr…

So there has been a big deal made out of the fact that there are now approximately 7 billion living human beings on earth.  If you are fascinated by stats and what it means and what the population was the year you were born as well as an evolution-based estimate of how many people have lived on earth you can play with this cool app on 7billionandme.org.

We on the boat are not that excited about. In fact we are not moved. We are actually commenting on it as a polite reference. It is much like the fuss around the millennium, or the new year.

At the end of the day we are still going to go home and face the same music we faced yesterday. It doesn’t change the world dramatically now that we know the world 7 billion people. It is not like we suddenly in a space of 30 minutes jumped from 3 people to 7 billion and we just have no freaking idea what to do with them.

At the end of the day, the story in itself is a chance for someone to make some money. And we just joined the bandwagon so people would come to your site…
