Polska;4640321Awesome, threesome ensured![/quote]"Threesome a bit more easy". It would be "ensured" (well not really but meh) if 1/3 were men and 2/3 were female. If all the men would get a partner this would leave 1/3 of the females without a companion.

But then we also have to take into account homosexuality, bisexuality and unattractive people and perhaps "hot" people who will get hit on the most. Hmm..

Quite a bad way to present these facts. Having a list of the major religions (Jews, Muslims, Christians, Buddist etc.) would have been more interesting.

70 would be non-white 30 would be white

As above. "Not white" and "white" is a rather black and white way of portraying things... That and the vagueness of what makes a person "white" (race, looks, what about people from varied background etc. ?).

89 would be heterosexual 11 would be homosexual

What about bi sexuals? Though I guess those would be less then 0,5 persons (so they have been left out).

This town seems to be targeted at "white" "rich" "christian" (hetrosexuals) to show them that most of the world isn't like them... that or the people who made this up didn't cared beyond this level of detail. =p

Looks like I'm in the top 8% in the world. If these statistics are accurate then I feel very fortunate right now.

Geez Donutz, way to make a guy feel bad. :p

I used a wide variety of statistics in incorporating what I have in the OP, it isn't that simple to go out and divide them into such blurred categories. That, and while I considered doing Bi-sexuals and other religions, given the broken down number it was hard to work out, as well as the lack of information.

If I had the time I would try and do it, but I don't. It wasn't really targeted at any specific audience, I just took the most simple concepts that were approachable and simplified them further.

I always resented being in the top 8th percentile. Good enough that everyone feels you don't have a right to complain about anything, and too low to really have no reason to complain about anything. I would much rather be in the top 1%.

I'm sure the numbers are rounded to whole numbers for convenience...if you really wanted to be pedantic about accuracy and statistical representation of reality, then you would go and say that the people should be split up into halves, thirds, quarters, fifths...fifteen thousand, six hundred, and thirty sevenths...

You can always find reasons to complain wherever you are, the real question is whether you have the balls to change them.

What does that tell us?

It tells us that those 6 people with 59% of the worlds wealth would be robbed and raped within hours?

Good point...unless they hired other people to protect them...
