Take A Number

The world’s population reaches 7 billion in the next few weeks. What’s your number? This BBC site lets you enter your birth date and then tells you what your number was when you were born, as in: you were the 3 billionth person alive. Of course, it’s not very accurate since it does not take your time of birth into account nor does it have a database of all births to consult, but it’s nevertheless quite fun.
