100 People

From 100 People.org

“If the world were 100 people…

31 would be Christian
21 would be Muslim
14 would be Hindu
6 would be Buddhist
12 would believe in other religions
16 would not be religious or identify themselves as being aligned with a particular faith

82 would be able to read and write
18 would not

2 would be near birth; 1 near death

5 would control 32% of the entire world’s wealth; all 5 would be US citizens

83 would have access to safe drinking water
17 would use unimproved water

1 would have a college education

75 people would have some supply of food and a place to
shelter them from the wind and the rain,
but 25 would not

53 would live on less than 2USD per day
50 would live in poverty

1 would own a computer”


This is exactly why I hate when people I know use the phrase “FML”, because for the most part, nothing about their life suggests that they are being fucked in the asshole like the rest of the world.  As entertaining as fmylife.com is, deep down I think it’s really ungrateful that people would make a website where other people share the “bad” things that happen to them when 5.561 billion+ (83%) people will never even have the chance to go online once in their lifetime.

MLIA is pretty funny too, but again, the average MLIA user’s life is likely way above average.
