Fill in your date of birth below to find out.

8. It brings to mind a cat exponential population increase chart I saw once
in a veterinarian's office to educate people to spay and neuter their cats.

I was born mid-century. The "baby boom" looks like a minor blip just before the steady steep incline.

In 1950 - 2,532,229,000
In 2011 - 6,974,036,000 ... soon to be 7,000,000,000

No wonder the world seems much more crowded than when I was a kid!
