The Moment is Upon us...
No, I am not gonna predict the end of the world, but rather a wonderful thing happening in Iceland. We are about to be 300.000 people on this island in a few days. It doesn´t sound as much, but if you know many of them and you have to greet them everytime you see them in one of the two shopping malls, this number appears much bigger:) The countdown is on and you can check it daily on www.hagstofa.is. I checked a couple of moments ago and this was the status:
there are only 172 people missing to make up the 300.000.
You have to realize that:
a) every two hours a baby is born in Iceland
b) there are about 5 people dying every day
c) we reached the 200.000 mark in 1966/67
ergo= I predict the middle of January to reach a population of 300.000.
Just for fun I checked the names in our National Register and there are currently 77 Monikas living in Iceland. There is no Doug. TLP..you are 8 times and 3 times as a second name. The rest of you, I just don´t really know your real names:)
What a mathematical post.
