Every second calculator tells you what happens around the world every second, minute, hour or 800 years (anything in-between is also possible).

A lot happens around the world at any given moment. People are born and die, get promoted or fired. Billionaires make another thousands while dozens die of starvation or diseases. Incredible amount of resources are used and huge amount of CO2 is pushed into the atmosphere while millions are busy searching for porn or playing Pokemon Go.

If you look at numbers you will realize how huge the world is and how tiny we are as individuals, families, neighborhoods, even as cities and countries. That's why we combined various cheerful, intriguing, sad or alarming numbers into one tool. Adjust the first field accordingly and check what happens every second, minute, hour or every 800 years.
