I Am Number 4..... errrr 4,224,861,760

Okay, so maybe that isn't the most accurate number considering it came from a generator but it's the number they told me I am.

In case you haven't heard, the world was slated to reach a population of  

**7 Billion**
today. A few rowdy babies didn't agree and so we actually passed that number on early! (Reports vary as to whether we hit it on Sunday or Monday.)

That number in the title represents the number person I was when I was born. I don't think it takes into account how many babies were born that day so probably all of us got a random number somewhere in the midst of all the numbers born that day. It's still fascinating to think I'm somewhere out there in the middle. None of the numbers repeat themselves enough for me to figure out which one should be lucky for me. 
Hubby was #4,702,819,003. That means 500 million ppl were born between us. If half those were men, that means he beat out 250 million ppl to win my heart. How sweet!

Check and see what number person you were born as here.


  1. Yeah, it's not accurate by far. There are even reports that the data isn't accurate and no one can agree when the world is really projected to hit 7 billion. Every country had a "symbolic" 7 billionth baby born but India named 7 babies from U.P. I thought that was interesting!

  2. Yes it does seem that way sometimes lol. Even Delhi doesn't seem as crowded as Amritsar somehow. Maybe its because the roads here are smaller or something.

  3. Very interesting! And i bet for you it seems that sometimes six and a half billion are living round about you in Amritsar lol. I am number 5,111,568,647th

  4. :) I do not believe this data :D so am not going to check it....they say the 7 billion-th baby is born in india and her name is nargis...
