There are more people alive today than all the people who have existed previously, up to tten years ago. There is enough room in Texas/New Mexico to house the entire population of the planet, at the same density as San Francisco.

Up until Victorian times, men and women were segregated in church. Women sat on the north side of the aisle, men on the south. The system broke when more and more influential men decided they wanted to sit with their wives.

However, it is still the custom at weddings for the groom to take the south side and the bride the north.

Not a lot of people know that! Not even people who direct Jane Austen adaptations.
