One born every minute

It’s true! If you divide the uk population by the age of the oldest briton (114y.o) then by 365, then 24, then by 60: you get a value slightly greater than 1.

A child per minute, marvelous!

It gets better

Germany.
82,678,629 divided by 111, then down to babies per minute = 3 babies for every 2 minutes.

I think that deserves a cup of tea all round.
