    *** more stuff ***

    According to one set of calculations based on 2002 data:[23]

    • The number who have ever been born is around 106,000,000,000
    • The world population in mid-2002 was approximately 6,215,000,000
    • The percentage of those ever born who were living in 2002 was approximately 5.8%
    The claim often made in various popular sources that more than half the humans ever born are alive today, is therefore in all probability quite exaggerated.

    Damn you Teh El Macho! You've seen through my cunning ruse!

    Actually, thanks for the stats. I figgered the 50% statistic was pretty well bravo sierra, but then again, so is the idea that a certain percentage of the population is immortal.

    Zinc, huh? Do you take a zinc suppliment or do you just take a multivitamin?
