If we could shrink the earth's
population to a village of precisely 100
people, with all the existing human ratios remaining the same, it

There would be:

52 would be female
48 would be male
70 would be nonwhite
30 would be white
70 would be non-Christian
30 would be Christian
89 would be heterosexual

If your parents are still alive and still married ... you are

If you hold up your head with a smile on your face and are truly
