    Can we get this number as a percentage of all humans who have ever lived? Seems more impactful that way

      70 million / 117 billion, Something like 0.06% of all humans

      Based on the numbers my phone gave me with no research or validation.

        Okay, not actually that interesting.

        Here’s something that is interesting though: In looking it up myself, I discovered that Billion and Trillion are not universal terms, and while in America 1 billion has 9 zeros, in the UK/ parts of EU, it has 12, and from there the number of zeros increases by 6 rather than 3. So 1 trillion in America has 12 zeros, but in Europe it has 18!

          UK uses the USA version for million billion so 9 zeroes, at least for our national statistics.

            USA version (pretty sure also UK version) of million has 6 zeros. Billion is the first to be different

          Oh wow, what a horrible thing to not have a standard. Good job, global community!
