Just what does 4.7 births per second look like? Or 200 stars born a second? And how crazy is the amount of food (per ton) produced every second? so_many_a_second is a neat little visualizer that works as a compelling time-waster. And if you've grown bored of the statistics shown, create your own. The site was inspired by artist Chris Jordan who said this in his artist's statement:
Collectively we are committing a vast and unsustainable act of taking, but we each are anonymous and no one is in charge or accountable for the consequences.
I discovered this simple visual aid on previous Brix Pick VSL.
