Wow, that's a fun fact... I wonder how many seconds someone is BORN! ;)

Would you mind citing a source for that? I have read it is 2 people a second, with 5 being born every second.

In the US alone, there is a death every 13 seconds and a birth every 7. I'd say worldwide, since I have to extrapolate here, that if someone dies every 7 seconds someones born every 4.

imagine what this place would be like if they didn't die?

It was a podcast I heard about a year ago....

Gotcha......

WikiAnswers say 4.4 are born every second worldwide but doesn't give death rates. The numbers I quoted above were from Yahoo Answers.

Every 3 seconds someone is born.
