One day I had a thought..

One day I thought how many people are there on this planet. Did some google search and came to the finding that the number is 6.64 billion people. Looks like an enormour number. Enormous indeed. But wait a sec...

Lets assume that all the population of the world is put together in a square formation with each person occupying 0.5M*0.5M of area. That is 0.25M-square per person.

So the population of the world would occupy 0.25*6640000000=1660000000M-square of Area

In other words this area is the area of a square of side 41KM.

Not that big!!!!!!!

0.5m X 0.5m - a person can't even breathe in that kind of area! Not forgetting other the normal activties for staying alive (sleeping, walking etc.)

41 Sq. Km. may seem small but remember that is the area of a decent sized city

Yeah I agree. Not big enough for staying alive.

My idea was if they were to come for a rock show or whatever. How much would they occupy.

41 km square for a rock concert ..oh man.... u need some kindda gadgets for people to listen....

hmmm.. 41sq km is def true after a person is dies (facturing in that some religions prefer to burn the dead and some bury them... )...

nevertheless lets forget that life is an exact science and lets say that hypothetically speaking one would need 100 sq km.. which is probably a decent size ranch in idaho or montana for that matter...

but insaan ko marne ke baad sirf 2 gaaj zaameen chaheye... phir bhi insaan makan (which literally translates into zameen) & paisa ke peeche bhagte rahta hain... aakhir kyon?

Yeh baat to apnay ko bhi saaf nahee hai. Ki kaheko jameen paisay ki pechay bhagta rehta hai insaan!!

Bhagnaa insaan ki fitrat hai
