    Gapminder World


    Its free open sourced top of the line statistics about countries around the world



    Just load the page on the link, and press the 'play' button on the bottom to start the animation. It will give you an entirely new look on stats (which I always though were boring) and the world. You can also edit and change many variables of the information. The size of the bubbles representing each country are the population of it.


    See for yourself the well being of countries, without any tainting from media/textbooks/bias.

    no doubt. The guy who made it and his team of software engineers are bosses for this.

    just tryna stay caught up



    isnt crazy, that Microsoft invested millions and millions of dollars or an online encyclopedia, only to get their asses rammed by a FREE non for profit open source encyclopedia? MS hired all these writers to fill up the info, yet wikipedia, compiled by the public, killed them.



    Khans acadamy = education open sourced


    everything is becoming open sourced

    even farm equipment

    What if you could choose when to stop it.




    Theres people who say "I would never want to live forever".


    Really? So when would you like to die?


    Tomorrow?


    When your 80? 100? 150? Lets say your 100 years old, and still very healthy. Do you think you would wake up one day and say "I think I'll die now." Why would you?

    Death only seems acceptable and right, when its decades away. But everyone I talk to, doesnt like aging. Or getting older. Or being close to death.

    In a few decades, the life expectancy for people will increase by two years, ever year. Life expectancy today is double what it was 100 years ago.
