World Stats

I know there are some dudes out there who like looking at statistics and like making equations out of them, and what not.

I am not among them.





But this site is really cool:
http://www.worldometers.info/

It's a world stats site that constantly updates itself. Some of the stats are slowly increasing, such as births today, while some are freaking insane, like the healthcare costs in the U.S


And some really make you think, like the billions of tons of food produced this year, and the amount of people who've died of hunger.



Even if you don't really like numbers, take a gander. It's really something.



Have a good day.
