50/50
 
If there is a 50/50 chance that a kid could be a male or a female, then what are the chances that the world's male/female population is split almost 50/50?

its a good question actually. cause yeah there's a 50/50 chance but who says that those chances would be so exact when it comes to it.

like 1 person in one part of the world has a boy, then another a girl until they're basically even.


with a 50/50 chance there's still the probability of the world pop having a disproportion of a single gender, but we don't and never do.

its like birth is linked globally somehow.

According to some news article I read a few months ago, the female population I think was, was about 51%.

The world population would not be split 50/50 cuz people have abortions, babies die from disease, and other things happen.

wrong

It's not 50/50. Male sperm are faster swimmers, but female sperm last longer. It depends all on timing whether you will get a boy or girl, but the slight advantage goes to the guys...about 1.06 to 1 The world's population is 52% female based on wars killing a disproportionate number of men.

i dont think thats a factor since most ppl dying in wars are civilians, not soldiers

Iraq Body Count:

4.300 dead US troops (mostly men)
VS
110.000 dead iraqi civilians (women children men allround)


the worlds population is 52%-female because women generally have longer life expectancy than men (66years VS 62), because men drive, drink and smoke more + having harder work etc

wow your numbers are way off, those are like after the first month....the civilian body count in Iraq is now over 1.6 million, you forgot to include the Republican Guard which was all but wiped out, and was all men.

Still that doesn't explain why the population is almost split 50/50. It's too perfect for me, as if some divine force is governing it ... or there is just a mathematical answer that I don't know about

beautifulrock 08-27-2009 02:40 PM

Ok, you don't understand, you are going to blame some mystical force. Good for you.

It's better than making up stupid theories on the fly.

Sperm?

Wiggroe please!

I'm not making it up, look it up yourself.
