Young People By the Numbers
According to my latest count, there are 6,824,324,117 people in the world. (If I missed you, my apologies but it was tiring work.)
Now I’m no statistician but I estimate that of that 6.8 billion at least 3 billion would fall into the category of “young people.”
Three billion young people. It’s a damned frightening notion. But, you’d think that with that many young people slithering about, there would be at least a few million you could consider to be “decent.”
You’d be wrong. Damned wrong.
I’ve run the numbers myself and determined the exact number of “decent young people” in the entire world. My calculations are set out below and have been verified by the pencil necks at Price-Waterhouse:
With almost 54 million left, I was still optimistic.
With only 57,000 and change left, I was understandably concerned.
57 god damned decent young people in the entire world. And almost half live in Iceland. It’s a scary notion folks, but the numbers speak for themselves.
