You remember that Original Star Trek episode "The Mark of Gideon" where there was this planet with no disease and there were so many people no one could move?
Yeah, it's like that.
There are somewhere around 1.4 Billion people living in China. Numbers like this are a little hard to wrap your head around so here are some handy comparisons.
1,400,000,000 people in China.
the US population is a whole digit shorter.
This means that there are about 4.2 people in China for every person in the US.
The entire population of my home state of Kansas would fit into Beijing, that just Beijing 7.4 times.
If you worked at $10 and hour 40 hours a week, it would take your 67,304 years to make one dollar for each person living in China.
The total weight of the population of China is about the same as 259 Empire State Buildings.
If everyone in China were to eat a quarter pounder today, it would be the same as one 350,000,000 pounder.
So you get the point. When you cross the border into China be prepared. 60 stall toilets, 300 table restaurants, people everywhere!
