Posted:525/6.283E9=0.000000008407% of the worlds population. i, representing 0.00000000001592% of the worlds population realllly feel like a minority right now.

http://www.census.gov/main/www/popclock.html
is where i got the 6.283E9 from. incidentally we just did exponential growth in precalculus. population growth can be estimated by

n(t)=n(o)*e^(rt)

n(t)=population as of now
n(o)= initial population
r= rate of growth (annual)
t=time

typical (target anyways) rates of growth would be 1-1.5%. even so.. around 2050 we'll be ~12billion people in the world. start saving your water now!

Posted:There was a thread ages ago (when i first came to the site) where people were trying to work out what speed a poi spins at. And this guy came up with a formulae to work it out.


Maths is too tricky for me. I just paint pretty pictures.
