What a crazy day

AS I write this, there have already been 190,478 births around the world today – and 77,798 deaths.

According to the worldometers website, on this day, 15,216 people have already died of hunger and $91 million has already been spent around the world on video games.

About 249,282,623 million newspapers have been circulated today, 303 million tweets sent and 15 billion toilets have flushed.

Right now, there are about 1.1 billion overweight people in the world trying to get thinner, and nearly the same number of undernourished people looking for a decent meal

What a crazy. busy planet.
