Anyway, all of these studies have one thing in common and that is that the trend is toward shorter relationships. To account for that we just cut out a whole bunch of years from the table where we completely falsely assume (making an ass out of myself here) that NO new relationships were formed and no existing ones ended. And we get this:
|Year||World Population||70% above 16||45% relationship||30% in relationships|
Let’s add that up and we get:
Soooooo – considering my really shitty math and the fact that I think I lowballed a bunch of numbers… We could guess that since the 50s about 4.2 BILLION relationships have been conducted on this planet. That is 4200 MILLION relationships.
Now let’s take this further. The odds to win the Jackpot of the US Powerball in 2015 are 1 in 292,201,338. That’s one in 292 MILLION. What do you think more likely… that somebody already had the same relationship idea as you have and conducted it or that you are going to win the US Powerball Jackpot. And for the relationship you have 14 times the odds…
Anyway, that’s was me playing around with numbers on a Sunday afternoon.
