I think there must be very many more chairs in the world than humans.
Here is my take on it:
(a) there are 15 more chairs, than people living, in my household. This enables us to entertain family and friends in relative comfort during parties and similar occasions.
(b) everybody that I know likewise has more chairs in their own household than live in it.
(c) every school I have ever been in always had enough chairs to seat all its pupils in classrooms, as well as a similar number of chairs in total to accomodate pupils & visitors for assemblies and dramatic performances in an assembly hall. Most of those chairs are totally unoccupied for about 13 weeks per year, and for the other 39 weeks per year, only about half the chairs are occupied during school time (i.e. about 8 hours or one third of a 24 hour period on a school day, and even on those school weeks, only 5 days per week.
(d) There is rarely never a shortage of seating in a church - most of which are nearly empty even when in use, but have enough seating for a big wedding congregation when necessary.
(e) Most Pubs, Clubs, Theatres, Cinemas, Holiday resorts etc., also have adequate seating (via chairs which are empty for much of the day).
(f) I believe similar availability exists elsewhere in most cultures throughout the developed world.
(g) Based on my own experience, I would estimate that there are at least 5 times as many chairs as there are people in the UK, and I suspect that there is a similar ratio in most modern civilized cultures.
(g) The biggest grouping of people is definitely the Chinese, and chairs have been commonplace in their society since antiquity. The population of China is around 1,300 million, and I suspect that there are nearly enough chairs in China alone to seat the whole population of the world (it would take about 5 times as many chairs as residents in that country).
I mean, think about it. There are more chairs than people in most homes. But there are some third world countries with no real chairs. Millions of people go without chairs, but there are so many people with homes with chairs. Also you have to include those stadiums and theatres with tons of chairs as well. And then also you have to include those chairs that recline and vibrate and crap, those must be bonus points or something..
6 people like in my house including me my brother my parents and heath and maria i went around like house putting post-it notes on them with numbers so i don't count them twice including the patio furniture and dining rooms and bar stools and desks and offices we have 96 chairs and thats just in this house not including the other houses so yeah i think there are in fact more chairs than people
More people. Chairs are a relatively recent development as far as its usage as an everyday item. Chairs were initially a symbol of authority. So chairs haven't been produced as rapidly as they are now when they first came about.
We're just shy of 7 billion people in the world, coupled with more births than deaths per day and it's reasonable to say there aren't as many chairs as people.
It is a good question. As above mentioned, there are many chairs in America and other developed places, but Third-World countries have millions of people without any chairs. If boxes or other crude items count as chairs, then definitely chairs. But there's close to what, 7 billion people now? I dunno. I'd have to say chairs.
Probably chairs... People have to make sure that there are enough chairs for people... So why not make more then enough eh??
More people die from a chair per year than from a shark attack!
