Three’s a crowd

Tomorrow, the population of the United States is projected to cross the 300 million mark. Check out the neat population clock at the US Census Bureau website and if you have nothing better to do, watch as we cross this milestone at around 7:46am EST tomorrow morning. The 200 million mark was hit back in November of 1967, and the 100 million mark? Way back in  1915. The Census Bureau has put together a page of interesting stats comparing life for Americans during these three years. It’s kind of random, but also fascinating.
Somethig scary? With less than 9 hours to go, we’re still more than 12,000 births away. That’s a whole lot of diapers to change.
