marcicat: (muffin)

Yesterday I was in a meeting, and the presenter asked us how many people there are in the United States. And I thought to myself ‘300 million?’ But I had no idea where that number came from, and I am notoriously bad at guessing numbers, so I kept my mouth shut.

(Honestly, I would have kept my mouth shut even if I had been 10% confident in an answer, because it was that sort of meeting. Sometimes you just show up and nod pleasantly and hope nobody singles you out for a direct question.)

But it turns out I wasn’t super wrong! The US population is more like 319 million, but 300 million is a shockingly close guess (for me). Brain, where did you come up with that number? What else is hidden in there?
