IJMC Are You Pondering What I'm Pondering?

Well yes Brain, but where are we going to find rubber bands to hold our 
hair back...ok, so Brain's more likely wondering how two mice could 
shrink the human population down like this so he could more easily 
dominate it...that's not important right now...                   -dave

If we could shrink the earth's population to a village of precisely 
100 people with all existing human ratios remaining the same, it 
would look like this:

There would be 57 Asians, 21 Europeans, 14 from the Western 
hemisphere (North and South), and 8 Africans.

51 would be female; 49 would be male

70 would be nonwhite;  30 white

70 would be non-Christian; 30 Christian

50% of the world's wealth would be in the hands of only 6 people and 
all 6 would be citizens of the United States

80 would live in substandard housing.

70 would be unable to read

50 would suffer from malnutrition.

1 would be near death, one would be near birth

Only one would have a college education.

No one would own a computer

When one considers our world from such an incredibly compressed
perspective, the need for both tolerance and understanding becomes
glaringly apparent....

Just a little food for thought.
