Over 106 billion people have ever lived on earth.
This is something I've always wondered. Thanks!
I've been spreading the myth (I know now that it is a myth) that there are more people alive now than have ever lived on earth. I sounded smart when I said it.
I wonder how many McHamburgers that equals?
How many people have ever lived on Earth? Short answer: “Almost all of them.”
I just drove by a McDonalds and their tote board is up to "99 billion served."
It's been at 99 billion served for like 10 years now. My theory is that they're easily over the 100 billion mark now but it would be too costly to modify all the signs to include that extra digit.
Billions and billions served. It sounds like a gangbang porno advert.
