From Phillip M Harter, MD, Stanford University, School of Medicine:

"If we could shrink the earth's population to a village of precisely 100 people, with all the existing human ratios remaining the same, here's what you would have:

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-(that's a lot for a small village)
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." (Wonder why?):)

Hmm, interesting. Who would be first to become leader and declare war on his ( unlikely to be her) neighbour?

70 would be non-Christian
30 would be Christian
Considering how many religions there are that's a bit of a vague comparison.. but then it was done by an American (who sounds slightly homophobic).

What an absolute load of drivel
some bullsh*t prof justifying his extortionate salary by producing reams of useless statistical garbage. It is neither useful to know such things nor beneficial to society, as for the 6 wealthy ones being Americans my word his ego is bigger than one of his testicles
