<BR> Think about this the next time you turn on your computer: <BR> <BR> If Earth's population was shrunk into a village of just 100 people -- <BR> with all the human ratios existing in the world still remaining what <BR> would this tiny, diverse village look like? That's exactly what Phillip <BR> M. Harter, a medical doctor at the Stanford University School of <BR> Medicine, attempted to figure out. This is what he found. <BR> <BR> 57 would be Asian <BR> 21 would be European <BR> 14 would be from the Western Hemisphere <BR> 8 would be African <BR> 52 would be female <BR> 48 would be male <BR> 70 would be nonwhite <BR> 30 would be white <BR> 70 would be non-Christian <BR> 30 would be Christian <BR> 89 would be heterosexual <BR> 11 would be homosexual <BR> 6 people would possess 59 percent of the entire world's wealth, and <BR> all 6 would be from the United States. <BR> 80 would live in substandard housing <BR> 70 would be unable to read <BR> 50 would suffer from malnutrition <BR> 1 would be near death <BR> 1 would be pregnant <BR> 1 would have a college education <BR> 1 would own a computer <BR> <BR> <P>

It does go to show you how lucky we are in the western world - we think of our comfortable lifestyles and feel we are in the majority and that the poverty we see in third world countries as terrible but rare. Those figures though really put things into perspective.<P>On a lighter note - how many would be dancers and how many members of CD?

Well I've checked our records and the person with the computer <u>is</u> a criticaldance reader.
