Lest you think you are someone special try using BBC's tool to discover where you fit in the panoply of human existence.
Yes, I am the 75,491,735,358th human to have ever lived, and when I was born, I was the 2,480,775,909th person alive on Earth.
Maybe that's special after all!
If you also enter your country and gender you can get more information. Here is what I got:
What's next? The global population will continue to increase during your lifetime and beyond, reaching 10 billion by 2083. However, the rate of growth is expected to slow. Little of the current growth is happening in developed countries like yours.
Longer lives: Working-age people like you will be supporting increasing numbers of older people during the next decades. By 2050, there will be just 2.2 people of working age supporting every person aged 65 or older in the developed world. In Europe, this will drop to just two.
Battle for resources: It is estimated that your group of the richest countries consumes double the resources used by the rest of the world. The UN estimates that if current population and consumption trends continue, by the 2030s we will need the equivalent of two Earths to support us.
Did you know? The average family size globally has declined by half since 1950 - from five children to the current 2.5.
The site also told me that 4,136 people had been born since I entered the site.
Bringing attention to the 7 billionth person is good. It will focus our attention on the issue of increasing population and its ramifications.
So how's this for a wish? Hard to believe Prince Phillip said this. Click on the yellow text for more quotes about population control.
“If I were reincarnated I would wish to be returned to earth as a killer virus to lower human population levels. -- Prince Phillip, Duke of Edinburgh
