You think I’d have more friends: A Video of Human Population Through Time

Whitney Houston might have been a little off with that whole believing children are the future thing…

I know we usually deal with pop-culture and cross-over themes but hey, it can’t hurt to be educational every once and a while. This is a pretty cool video by The American Museum of Natural History showing the Earth’s growth in human population over time. Let’s just say we’ve had a more productive past couple centuries when it comes to baby making:

It took 200,000 years for our human population to reach 1 billion—and only 200 years to reach 7 billion.

After watching this I have realized that we already have geeks and nerds to thank for all the technological advances we’ve made and now we gotta thank them for saving the overpopulation issue. Ya know, cause they aren’t getting laid thus no kids. The future is saved!

Enjoy.
