I have been told that the entire earths' population would fit in the state of Texas and each person would have 1/2 acre. Is this true.
I checked at http://www.ibiblio.org/lunarbin/worldpop where I found the world population to be approximately 6,276,000,000. I then checked http://www.netstate.com/states/geography/tx_geography.htm and found the area of Texas as 268,601 square miles. One square mile is 640 acres and hence the area of Texas is 268,601x640=171,904,640 acres. Thus if you fit the entire population of the world into Texas each person would have
Even if you use the entire USA where the area is 3,537,441 square miles each person only get 0.36 acres.Do I get to choose which piece I get?
