I know Gray is looking into this but whilst I remember, and whilst I'm sober.......

Question: At any one time 45 million people worldwide are....?

Forfeits: Asleep, singing, eating cheese......

Answer: Drunk

Notes: 0.7% of the worlds population is estimated to be drunk at any one time. That's more than the whole population of South Africa. Cheers!

Other 'any one time' stats:
In Britain, 3-4% of men and 7-8% of women suffer from moderate to severe depression at any one time. That's over 3,600,000 people.

At any one time in Britain 300,000 people are terminally ill. Nottingham has a population of about 300,000 people.

225,000 people worldwide are on the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme at any one time.

8.5 million people throughout the world are busily swapping files online at any one time.

Between 14,000 and 17,500 people are trafficked into the United States annually, according to the US government, most forced into the sex trade, domestic servitude, or agricultural labor. At any one time, between 52,000 and 87,000 are living in conditions of slavery there.

Now that's a statistic I can't improve upon.

Until later tonight, of course.
