If you want your kid to be famous, that is.
Demographers (a notoriously “educated guess”-ing bunch) are predicting that the 300 millionth American will be born in October of this year. Do the math … that’s right. You can finish reading this post later.
You’re most likely to be the parent of “Baby 300 Million” (or, as I like to call it, B3M) if you are a Latino in Los Angeles County. And it’ll be a boy! Congratulations!
Unlike many of his predecessors, B3M could live to be 90. However, jury’s out on the kind of world he’ll be living in, due to sprawl, etc.: According to one demographer, “By the time the 300 millionth individual gets to adulthood, many of the cities today we consider small and nice to live in won’t be so nice.” [Ominous music]
Lest you were wondering, Baby 200 Million (who actually probably missed the two million spot by two years, according to later revised Census Bureau estimates, but whatev) is 38-year-old Robert Ken Woo, Jr. of Atlanta. I smell photo op!
In fact, B2M, B3M, and B4M might all be able to hang out, since B4M is scheduled to arrive in, oh, 40 years or so.
