Series 7 Billion: Part 5/7

7 billion people and you: What's your number? | Quirky (with a dash of genius)! | Scoop.itToday's my bday... happy birthday me!

We all have lots of things we ponder and contemplate on our birthdays.  In this season of 7 Billion, an interesting thing to ponder is our place in this great big population thing.  BBC has a great link where you can calculate just that!  Put in your birthdate, demographics, and find out where you are in in the grand population scheme.  

As for me and my birthday, I was the 3,646,597,107th person alive on Earth.  I was the 77,752,632,831st person to have lived since history began.  Looking at those numbers, the numbers of candles on the cake don't feel that bad at all!
