 graye-ga rated this answer: `Above and beyond. Very nice`
 ```In human populations, a good rule of thumb is that 1% of the population kicks the bucket every year. So, on a planet of 6 billion people, you would figure about 60 million die each year, which jives very well with bobbie7-ga's numbers.```
