WorldMeters

Roger Ebert posted an interesting link via Twitter just a few minutes ago. He posted a link to WorldMeters, which is essentially a site that has real time statics of all kinds of things world-wide. This is so fascinating. I’m completely mesmerized. All of the statics are mind-blowing, but my attention is principally focused on the population statics at the moment. I find it absolutely incredible that there have already been nearly 22 million births world-wide year-to-date (and it’s still only February!) That’s nearly the population of the state of Texas! I can’t stop staring at this! Mind-boggling!
