    Bicycles outnumber computers. I didn't see that one coming.

    When watching it, cancer incidence is around 6million and deaths from cancer at 4 million. Is the survival rate that low?

    Not at all, if you look closely, the numbers increase at a constant rate.

    of course the rates are constant, but the question is whether they use some accurate statistics to make their calculations or not...

    Well I'm pretty sure those people in third world countries travel by bicycle or something. Along with people living in large cities with constant traffic would probably find a bicycle far more appealing. Remember, not everyone has the luxury we have.

    But people who do have the luxury own, not one, but several computers. And there are internet cafes in places that aren't so luxurious. Besides, when I was in Africa, I didn't see many bikes. I saw a lot of old, banged up cars, internet cafes, but hardly any bikes. I guess personal experience just doesn't fit in with the reality.

    Btw, do laptops count as computers in that counter?
