Trains, Kisses, Population and New Year's

Think about this as you kiss on New Year's Eve. The U.S. Census Bureau today projected the January 1, 2004, population of the United States will be 292,287,454 up 2,816,586 or just 1.0 percent from New Year's Day 2003.

The Census Bureau offers us these mathematical calculations. In January, the United States is expected to register one birth every 8 seconds and one death every 13 seconds. Meanwhile, net international migration is expected to add one person every 25 seconds.

So, if one train is approaching at 50 miles an hour, and the other is traveling at 120 miles an hour, and the wind is out of the east ... you get the idea.

The result is an increase in the total population of one person every 12 seconds. So, where does everyone go?
