Big day today. Our population reaches 7 Billion. The whole world… 7 Billion people!!!
Some woman in, odds say, India or China, will give birth to the world’s 7 Billionth baby. You know how, when city’s have the first baby born of the New Year, they give them prizes and such? Well what does the 7 Billionth baby IN THE WORLD get? A new car? Diapers for life? Should be something cool.
The United Nations says the world’s population will reach eight billion by 2025 and 10 billion by 2083.

Canada is set to unveil its new currency… and not everyone is on board.
The plastic money is due to go into circulation next month and it could get a giggle from a few people.
A focus group was asked recently to look at the money, and give their feedback.
Some mistook a strand of D-N-A on the 100-dollar bill for a sex toy, and most thought the see-through window on the notes is shaped like a woman’s body.
Some looked into the portholes of a Canadian icebreaker and saw a skull and crossbones staring back at them.
I wasn’t excited about our new money… I am now!

Police in Abbotsford, B.C.are investigating a strange attack on a seven-year-old boy in the local Costco store.
The boy was in the washroom while his father waited outside with another child.
Police say the youngster was in a bathroom stall when another boy, estimated to be about 10, crawled under the stall, assaulted the boy and bit him on the lip.
The bite was severe enough that the young victim needed stitches. Police are still looking for the 10 year-old boy.
Who does this? My boy Jaret is 7 and if any kid did this to him… especially one he didn’t know, I’d lose it. The kid crawls UNDER the bathroom stall to bite a kid he DOESN’T KNOW!!
Vigilante justice on a 10 year-old? Well maybe not… but still!!!
