Watch the consumer culture grow!

WorldSo here’s a fun/scary site that we came across entirely randomly. It’s the U.S. Census Bureau’s World POPClock Projection, and it estimates the population of the world at the exact moment you load the page. Wait a few seconds, and then refresh—it seems the population grows by about seven people every second. (It was at 6,411,089,038 at 9:02:57 a.m. EST this morning, by the way. Approximately.)

We’re not sure how this site would be very useful, but maybe some of you out there would get a kick out of watching your future customers being born.
