From the U.S. Census Bureau..

55,503,922 deaths per year
133,398,951 births per year

That is more than I expected.

I think someone dies every 13–15 seconds and someone is born every 10–12 seconds.

So it looks like 152,065 people die every day.


We need to get those numbers reversed, it’s getting crowed in here!

I missed the day part of the question. Thanks for the backup. And yeah, thinning the herd might not be a bad idea.

And I’m talking about the world and not Fluther. I welcome the new users here with open arms. But I will be a dick if your answer is “more blowjobs.” Especially when the question is about a computers BIOS.

I was referring to planet Earth. But yes, it’s getting a little crowded in here too.
