Hi;

I am guessing he will be born right in my apartment complex and he will be funny looking.

Sounds like you're planning to be the father.  smile  Is that wise at the age of 93 (plus 13 I guess)  ?

By that date, babies will be coming so fast it will be hard to identify the exact one.  In the time from 'head first sighted' to 'first scream' many babies could be born.   You will need a split second definition of 'moment of birth' and all maternity units (including the bathroom floor) to be connected to the internet for reporting and ranking purposes.

You have heard babies say welcome?

I am afraid not. The m's die here. I estimate that 1 in 4 humans is born in my building.

No, that one I have not heard of.

Extrapolating into the future even when you think you know what those devils are thinking is difficult. Nobody looked at the other two numbers.

1 in 4 humans? That is why I said that "officially" there will never be 8 myriad people.

The truth about it is that those two dates are more in question then the population.

I have to wait that long for a gigabyte? @#$%

I'll predict it'll be a girl, born to RDJ aka Iron Man. A true gig,

Re: By 2024 we will have the 8 billionth baby

8 billion? Hah! We have that many living next door to me.

Whenever a dangerous predator begins to have a large population they have a hunt to control their numbers. In Jersey they have bear hunts, in Florida gator and python hunts, why not a human hunt? Every January 1st the teetotalers take up positions outside housings where the partiers are getting soused. As they come out, boom! One less dangerous predator. Of course it would not be fair if the partiers were not armed too, then many dangerous predators could be eliminated.

I think you are right. We had better start counting them now.

Hi mathaholic;

You might have some of those babies as part of your family by then.
