unlike zeke, i cannot take credit for this. it was sent to me, but reflects my life to a "t" -

this one is just to think about. i count my blessings every day.

If we could shrink the earth's population to a village of precisely 100 people, with all the existing human ratios remaining the same, it would look something like the following:
There would be:
> >> 57 Asians
> >> 21 Europeans
> >> 14 from the Western Hemisphere, both north and south
> >> 8 Africans
> >> 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 possess 59% of the entire world's wealth and all
> >> 6 would be from 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; 1 would be near birth
> >> 1 (yes, only 1) would have a college education
> >> 1 would own a computer
