Iron Denominator News, Number Indeterminate

Chinese cell phone users sent 217,760,000,000 text messages last year. This is a statistic that calls for Useless Math Exercise Man!

Let's see... 217,760,000,000 divided by 1,298,847,624 (CIA's July 2004 estimate of China's population) gives us 167.66 text messages per person. Divided by 366 (2004 was a leap year) gives us 0.46 text messages per day.

Consider yourselves enlightened.
