If Bill Gates offered to give every person on earth $10, you might find
there are 14 Billion people in the queue. There are different ways of
counting people.

Funniest headline of the day: “World Population to reach 7 billion in next
few days....”

Who thinks the UN computers or bureaucrats have that precise a measure of
the world population?

I’ve seen the count of just the “illegals” in one major technically advanced
nation alone to vary by several millions among several estimators.
