It's easy to feel like the way we experience life is generally the same for others.
But did you realize that the majority of people in this world don't actually have the internet?
About 3.5 billion people or only 40% of the world has an internet connection today, meaning this digital reality we experience is actually done so by a minority of people in the world.
Or how about the fact that the majority of people on the world live in this circle?
In fact, it contains 22 of the world's 37 mega cities which each have at least 10 million people.
Only 2 cities in America fall into this category, New York and Los Angeles.
On that note, the majority of the world actually live in developing countries.
In fact, modern langauge is now advocating to change terms like "third world country" to "majority world country"
to more accurately represent that these countries are, well, the majority of humankind.
Even if the G8 countries made decisions that affect the majority of people on this planet.
To that point, around 70 to 80% of people on this planet make less than 10 US dollars a day.
Well, even in a wealthy country like America, over 50% of people make less than 30,000 dollars a year.
The good news is that global poverty has fallen by half over the last decade.
But we still have a global environment where more people have cell phones than toilets.
And when they're talking on those phones, the vast majority aren't speaking English as a first language.
The majority also aren't Christian.
As if November 2016 most people are male with roughly 55 million less females on the planet,
and of our population, the majority are under the age of 30.
In America, once you turn 37, you're officially older than half the country.
And the most common age for a person to be worldwide?
Zero years old, followed by 1 year old, 2 years old, 3, 4 and then 26 years old.
The majority of adults in the world weigh around 61 kilograms or 135 pounds,
whereas the vast majority of people in North America are overweight .
And while the majority of Nothern Americans drink coffee over tea,
three cups of tea are drank for every one cup of coffee worldwide, making it a much more popular drink.
Speaking of North America, the majority of the Canadian population actually lives South of Seattle.
In terms of energy consumption, the vast majority of the world consumes more than two times less energy per capita than Canadians or Americans.
If we take a wide view, it turns out that the majority of the universe is made up of dark energy at 68%.
Dark matter makes up 27% and the rest (everything on earth and everything ever observed with instruments), otherwise called "normal matter" only makes up 5% of the universe.
And given that atoms are made up of 99.99% empty space, the majority of you is...
nothing.
We want to send a special thanks to BIll and Melinda Gates for supporting this episode.
Did you know that the number of childhood deaths have been cut in half over the last 15 years?
And that 122 million children's lives have been saved since 1990?
Sometimes it may feel like the world is getting worse, but global health intervention is changing that,
and in their annual letter, Bill and Melinda Gates highlight this amazing progress.
But, also the challenges, like how 45% of child deaths are linked to malnutrition.
You can check out the annual letter at gatesletter.com by using the link in the description below to learn about and support their amazing initiatives.
