One of my favorite numbers to carry around in my head: 4 million. Every age cohort born in the US for the last 70-75 years had started w/about 4 million members. (Hadn't remembered the early 70s baby bust as being SO deep, tho).

@DinaRadenkovic The number of births per year in U.S. It's been pretty constant since WWII. But since the population is growing, it actually reflects a steady drop in kids-per-woman. By contrast, you can see deaths per year climb steadily (then suddenly, i guess due to covid)

I am annoyed by the way the news call this study "approved" by FDA. An IDE is considered "approved" 30 days after receipt unless FDA puts a hold on it. Holds aren't common; Neuralink's "approval" is only noteworthy bec/its prior IDEs were blocked.
