This is what studying does...

I found this while reading my Anthropology textbook:

IF WE SHRANK THE EARTH'S POPULATION TO 100 PEOPLE....

The following is a non-biased perspective of the World's population.The author is unknown.


If we could shrink the Earth's population to a village of precisley 100 people, with all the existing human ratios remaining the same, it would look something like this-

57 Asians
21 Europeans
14 from the Western Hemisphere, both north and south
8 Africans

Of these 100 people:
~52 would be female
~48 would be male
~70 would be non-white
~30 would be white
~70 would be non-Christian
~30 would be Christian
~89 would be heterosexual
~11 would be homosexual

~6 people would posses 59% of the entire world's wealth and all of them would be from the United States.

~80 would live in sub-standard housing
~70 would be illiterate
~50 would suffer from malnutrition
~1 would be near death;1 would be near birth
~1 would have a college education
~1 would own a computer

~ "When one considers our world from such a compressed perspective, the need for both acceptance, understanding, and education becomes glaringly apparent."


Puts things in perspective, don't it??
