Apparently this is my link-sharing day. I found another interesting article thanks to a friend: http://someclever.tumblr.com/post/2698199393/50-facts-that-should-change-the-world-fascinating

Ones that stood out to me the most:
– Black men born in the US stand a one-in-three chance of going to jail. For white men the odds are one in 17.
– Eighty-one percent of the world’s executions in 2002 took place in just three countries: China, Iran and the USA.
– There are 44 million child labourers in India, some working 16-hour days.
– Ten languages die out every year.
– Since 1977, there have been 80,000 acts of violence or disruption at abortion clinics in North America.

Which stands out to the most to you?
