Big Numbers: The Depressing Version   2 comments

From Object-Oriented Philosophy:

Just now I saw that the estimates for Haiti are 111,000 dead and 600,000 homeless, out of a nation of 8.3 million.

Percentage-wise, for the United States with 304 million, that would be 3,952,000 dead and 21,918,400 homeless.

Or in clearer intuitive terms: everyone in Oregon was killed, and everyone in Ohio and Michigan is homeless.

  1. sounds like another big numbers post 😉

  2. Exactly the point I’ve been trying to make to all these AmericaFirst-tards. Katrina killed only 1000 and displaced about 1/2 million, but did anyone complain when we had telethons for them that those who were homeless already were getting shafted?
