  • the 85 richest people in the world control as much wealth as the poorest 3,550,000,000. or, to put it another way, each one of them has the wealth of 42 million of  the world’s poorest people. (link)
  • 49% of black men 23 and under in the united states have been arrested. (cf. 44% of hispanics, 38% of whites — link)
  • the US is by far the world’s most heavily armed country (link), with 250-290,000,000 guns, or just about 1 gun for every man, woman, child, and baby. of those guns, approximately 4,000,000 (1.4%) are in the hands of the us military or law enforcement (link).

also, did you know (two-parter coming up) that we (a) have a black hole at the center of our galaxy (and pretty much all others) and (b) that dark matter, which composes ~26% of the matter in the known universe, surrounds our galaxy? that is, we live in the thin, spinning sheet of baryonic matter that exists (temporarily) between two tremendous masses of unknown shit. we are spirally gradually down a black hole, away from a black mass. the canonical rock and hard place, ce n’est pas? jes sayin’.
