I've Got Your Number

Today is October 31st, 2011 and on this day, give or take a few days, weeks, or months, the population of the world is arbitrarily set to reach 7 billion people.  The population of the earth has doubled during the past 50 years.  Next week, I'll turn 50, which means that I've been here to witness the earth doubling over.  I was the 3,115,745,978th person brought into the earth on the day that I was born, although my mom can hardly be held accountable for all of that.  I was also the 76,838,271,249th person to have ever lived throughout history.  Curious about your number?  Follow this link but don't forget to enter your birthdate the European way (first day, then month, then year):   http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-15391515
