UNITED NATIONS —

The world’s seven billionth person will be born Monday into what U.N. leader Ban Ki-moon calls a “world of contradiction”—and facing an uphill battle if it is on the wrong side of the poverty line.

While many countries around the world will be choosing their own symbolic baby, holding rallies and other events to mark the latest stage of the global population explosion, Ban will not be seen cuddling a newborn.

In Zambia there will be a seven billion song contest, while Vietnam will stage a “7B: Counting On Each Other” concert. Russian authorities are to give gifts to selected babies while in Ivory Coast national comedians are staging their own show.

What i don't get is that China with a one child policy since 1978 can have the largest population on the planet. They haven't curbed pop. growth any more than any country without a one-child policy.

This is not real, go to a million websites and you'll get a million different statistics on population. Sure this is the UN numbers, but I feel more comfortable basing the statistic on the amount of turds I fill the toilet with in the morning multiplied by a number I randomly generate with playing cards. gaah.gif

Slow news day for the POO.
