The human population is growing at an ever-increasing rate and with it so are our needs. Consequently, increasing demands for food, water, technology, and energy are causing the world around us to change faster than we could ever hope to comprehend. 'Worldometers' created a site showing the mind-boggling amount of data associated with our rapidly advancing society via a continuously updating list.

This list includes population statistics, such as world population total (including the number of births and deaths), world spending on illegal drugs, and the amount of cigarettes smoked daily. For those interested in geography, this can be an incredibly interesting tool. Even if you aren't overtly interested in these things, I still recommend a flick through - if you can't get your head around big numbers, it may help open your eyes to the world we live in.
