I thought of posting it in the youtube thread, but I was hoping to get more feedback:

It is fascinating and heartening to see how far we've come in the last 200 years. And he seems very optimistic about the future.

What do you think?

Hmm, with population continuing to grow fast and resources dwindling...don't know about that. :neutral: Only time will tell.

That's a really neat video. Great to see nearly everyone getting over the 50 year expectancy!

I do think it's pretty neat!

Overall stats show an upward trend; not to be a downer (ha!) or anything, but all kinds of things could happen to reverse that. So I'll just enjoy the upward trend while it's here, and do whatever I can to make sure it stays on that path. :)

I can't hear it. I don't know why. :(

Check the volume control in the youtube player - it's just to the right of the "play" button in the lower left corner. I've often accidentally set it to "mute".

Nope, it's not muted. I have no clue why.

It was neat.

But the thing that isn't on the graph is the number of people.
