Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - Where Do You Fit?

From Randy over at Genea-Musings:

It's Saturday Night again -- and time for more Genealogy Fun!!! 

Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to:

1)  Use the Population Counter on the BBC News website to determine your place in the current world population, and your place in all of history (of course, these are estimates...see the website for how they calculated this).  Enter your birth date into the fields and click on "Go."

2)  Tell us about your results in your own blog post, as a Comment on this blog post, or as a status line in Facebook or a Stream post on Google Plus.  For extra credit, show us the image from the website with your information on it.

Here's mine:

As you can see, the site states that when I was born, I was the 3, 470,690,467th person alive on Earth, and I was the 77,470,321,241st person to have lived since history began.

I entered the next day into the calculator and got 3,470,887,029 as the number person alive on Earth, subtracted the number I got and got the total of 196,562 persons were born on the day I was born.  It was a popular day!

Here is  my synopsis.  My favorite part is where is states the population has grown by 6,020 people while I've been on the site!
