If my ability to divide is still present, then almost
nineteen million people will have their birthday today. Which is
around four and a half Kentucky's or around six Wales's. It would be
somewhere near the population of New York State, or well over half the
population of Uganda. But not quite the population of Beijing.
There was a time the population
of human beings was such that around thirty people would be having a
birthday today. I think I can fairly say that I know thirty people by
name. But it would be very worrying indeed to know the names of
nineteen million people.
