Description: Good Thought (not exactly funny)
    If we could, at this time, shrink the Earth's population to a
village of precisely 100 people, with all existing human ratios remaining
the same, it would look like this:

     There would be 57 Asians, 21 Europeans, 14 from the Western
     (North and South) and 8 Africans.

     70 would be non-white; 30 white.

     70 would be non-Christian; 30 Christian.

     50% of the entire world wealth would be in the hands of only 6

     All 6 would be citizens of the United States.

     70 would be unable to read.

     50 would suffer from malnutrition.

     80 would live in sub-standard housing.

     Only 1 would have a college education.

          When one considers our world from such an incredibly compressed
     perspective, the need for tolerance, understanding, and action
becomes rather apparent.
