World Population - Now With More "Urban"

According to a study conducted by North Carolina State University and the University of Georgia, today's date of "May 23" will be a doosie.

Why you ask? Well, because according to this research, May 23, 2010 is officially the first date in the history of the world in which the population of Earth will officially become more "urban than rural".

What does this mean, and how will it effect us?
My guess: nothing, and in no significant way.

Well, other than the "to-be-expected" weather channel docudramas that we will have to stomach for the next 3 years.
