Email the Planet

One of the pieces of junk email I received recently had a subject line of Email the Planet. I don’t know if the planet Earth has an email address, and I can email her (or him?) or if someone has collected an email address for every person on the planet.

Chris joked that since I can only email about 350 messages an hour on my shared hosting package, it would take a long time to send to everyone. Here’s what I figured out:

6,000,000,000 # of people on earth
350 messages sent per hour
17,142,857 # of hours needed
714,286 # of days needed
1,957 # of years needed

I don’t think I’ll spend the time or money ($349) to find out…
