    300 Million Americans Tomorrow!
    WOW!

    WASHINGTON (AFP) - The US population will hit the historic milestone of 300 million Tuesday but no one can say who or where the person who tips the scale will be on that day.

    According to the US Census Bureau, the 300th million resident will clock at about 7:46 am (1146 GMT) based on an algorithm that takes into account birth rates, death rates and rates of international migration.

    The Census Bureau estimates that an American is born every seven seconds, one dies every 13 seconds and a migrant crosses into the country every 31 seconds. The result is an increase in the total population of one person every 11 seconds.

    Man Matt - you have too much time on your hands!! Between people being born, people dying and people entering the country I doubt that the census bureau has a sound sense of exactly what our population is - but a 300 mil population sounds like a good market - so let's get busy!

    7.46 am, they have too much free time to come up with that.

    I think so...

    I am trying to get in some goods before Alan really lets me have it when he gets back on here.

    I'm screwed then...
