Global village

If we could reduce the world’s population to a village of precisely 100 people, with all existing human ratios remaining the same, the demographics would look something like this:

The village would have 60 Asians, 14 Africans, 12 Europeans, 8 Latin Americans, 5 from the USA and Canada, and 1 from the South Pacific

51 would be male, 49 would be female

82 would be non-white; 18 white

67 would be non-Christian; 33 would be Christian

80 would live in substandard housing

67 would be unable to read

50 would be malnourished and 1 dying of starvation

33 would be without access to a safe water supply

39 would lack access to improved sanitation

24 would not have any electricity (And of the 76 that do
have electricity, most would only use it for light at night.)

7 people would have access to the Internet

1 would have a college education

1 would have HIV

2 would be near birth; 1 near death

5 would control 32% of the entire world’s wealth; all 5 would be US citizens

33 would be receiving --and attempting to live on-- only 3% of the income of “the village”

Boychick on a Mission

So after dating a this cute Jewish guy (I flat out asked him if he was and he said yes) for a few months, and trying to get him to come to Seder with me...
With no avail, it came to light that no in fact he wasn't Jewish and lied because he wanted to date me. Now, I only date Jewish guys but if I ask you if you are please don't lie to me. I guess he gets asked that allot, so this time he just went with it.

In desperation I broke down and signed up for If you don't know what that is, think of it as for Jews. And let me tell you I'm very surprised with the gay Jewish boys on my area. I think I might have to start going to temple more often.

In knitting news I have started a merino and silk scarf that I'm hoping will look great felted down. I found a hat pattern in a book Shibori Knits. It looks great no so im hoping the felting would look even better.

But really Its been a very mellow few weeks. Just working on make up some more of my designs. And I'm really getting into seeing my own ideas coming off my needles. Who knows I could be the next Eunny Yang, and you all can say you read me when lol

But I have to get off here my breakfast/knitting is waiting on me. I promise to update soon!

And I leave you with Art...I love this video!
