    It is estimated that the total weight of all the people in the world is 632 billion pounds.


    Clearly, some folks are 'contributing' more than their fair share...

    Yes, it sounds like a lot until you consider that there are 7 billion people in the world; that means the average person weighs just over 90 pounds. Sounds pretty low to me; more an indication that there are people who aren't getting enough to eat in the world than that there is some kind of global obesity problem.
