    I just thought you might like to know...:dunno:

    -----------------------------:disbelief:

    The world population is the sum of all humans on Earth. As of today, it is estimated to number 7.005 billion by the United States Census Bureau.[1] The USCB estimates that the world population exceeded 7 billion on March 12, 2012. According to a separate estimate by the United Nations Population Fund, it reached this milestone on October 31, 2011.[2][3][4]

    The world population has experienced continuous growth since the end of the Great Famine and the Black Death in 1350, when it stood at around 370 million.[5] The highest rates of growth – global increases above 1.8% per year – were seen briefly during the 1950s, and for a longer period during the 1960s and 1970s. The growth rate peaked at 2.2% in 1963, and had declined to 1.1% by 2011. Total annual births were highest in the late 1980s at about 138 million,[6] and are now expected to remain essentially constant at their 2011 level of 134 million, while deaths number 56 million per year, and are expected to increase to 80 million per year by 2040.[7] Current projections show a continued increase in population (but a steady decline in the population growth rate), with the global population expected to reach between 7.5 and 10.5 billion by 2050

    Also, our debt is now heading to 16 trillion.
    Thanks for the info. I hear there is now panic in Detroit.
    Bowie had premonitions about the U.S.. A catchy tune; at the least, I know Dante will luv it:

    Wow, it will be a good harvest this season. So many of you are so plump and tender looking. Good mix of light and dark meat too. It's going to be one hell of a show when the space lizards arrive and the feast commences. (hey, I can dream if I want, pray too ... :razz: )
