Seven Billion People

We're slated to hit 7,000,000,000 in 2012.
We hit 6 billion in 1999.
Thirteen years to add a billion.
We hit 1 billion in 1800.
In 1930, 130 years later, we made 2 billion.
(data from the AP)
So between 1930 and 1999 we added 4 billion in 69 years.

Re: not Bertrand Russell

I need to find myself an old adage to appropriate.

Re: not Bertrand Russell
Have you read much Nietzsche?

Re: not Bertrand Russell
Of course. Nietzsche and Russell were the two I read in high school. I don't think there's a book N wrote that I don't have, including his unpublished notebooks and numerous books about him.

He's not particularly mature, however.
