## How come!

How come the UN can figure out that this baby is the 7 billionth baby in the world! How did they, then, prove it?

Wow that's great

## Poor Choice of Words

This is clearly not the "world's 7 billionth baby" if we've reached 7 billion living persons, otherwise we'd all have to be immortal.

## Criteria

Why choose this particular baby, when there are somewhere in the neighborhood of 5 babies being born every second? Clearly there's no way to know that this is exactly the seven billionth, so I'd be interested in knowing the criteria used.

I think it is only an ESTIMATE.

20:36, 1 November 2011

Yeah, I kinda think its not a valid thing to choose who is the 7th billion baby, since its completaly impossible to know. Why even bother and not just give the money they wasted to something useful?

## method of selection

How can the UN possibly know that this is the 7 billionth person?
