When you read on your computer screen that world population has surpassed 7 billion, as it did in 2011, it's hard to put that number in context. It's big a world. Where is everyone?
7 Billion World is a website/infographic that breaks it down. There's a representative little figure for EVERY. SINGLE. PERSON. in the world, color-coded by what area of the world they live in. Asia is gigantic, and Oceania is maybe smaller than you'd imagine.
Hover over any of the people, and an icon will tell you what number they are out of the 7 billion. It's a simple idea, but kinda makes you think about your little place in the big, crowded globe. Go ahead and try to find yourself on it by going here.
I tried to find myself, but after centering my pointer on one of their people and pushing about a hundred times the stickperson told me to try existentialism. PopSci lied to me. The stickpeople will not help us find ourselves. They don't care about us.
As I followed the chart down and found red, I guess in the Americas the little FAT red people were from USA, lol.
The reds aren't fat.... the graphic works if you cross your eyes too.
I like how the Asians are yellow and the Africans are black
Huh, good observation. So what does it mean to be a blue person or green?
Are the blue people with -ab blood type, hybrid alien human and the green people part leprechaun or lizard people?
Reaaallly need some better contraceptives...
Using indigenous colors isn't racist, in case anyone was thinking having the Asians be yellow, the Americans be red, Africans black and so forth.
About the colours, didn't you guys read? "We followed the original color convention of the 5 Olympic rings: blue for Europe, yellow for Asia, black for Africa, green for Australia and red for America."
