Population of the dead

excerpt of the population of the dead chart

A little bit of infoporn to end the weekend. The folks at I Love Charts have a great infographic showing various ways to compare the current living population vs. the total population of every person now deceased. Among the points the chart demos is the fact that the total population of dead people in the earth's history is waaay higher the current living population. That's interesting for a whole lot of reasons, not the least of which is the fact that we the living are going to be in a LOT of trouble during the global zombie war.
