ok, somebody didn't like the list of 100 people that supposedly make up the world population and posted a "debunking" link. hows about instead of just pointing our finger and going nyahnyah you're wrong, we correct it according to the link. it's still interesting and revealing, IMO.

• 60 Asians
• 12 Europeans
• 15 from the Western Hemisphere, both north and south
• 13 Africans
• 50 would be female
• 50 would be male
• 73 would be non-white
• 27 would be white
• 67 would be non-Christian
• 33 would be Christian
• 97 would be heterosexual
• 3 would be homosexual
• 5 people would possess 23% of the entire world's wealth and all 5 would be from the United States.
• 33 would live in substandard housing
• 16 would be unable to read
• 33 would suffer from malnutrition
• 1 would be near death; 1 would be near birth
• 10 would have a college education
