There are 7 billion people in the world
Assume 3.5 billion are female. That leaves us with 3.5 billion males.
Assume we can only choose those between the ages of 18 and 36. We can probably safely assume that half of the world's population is under 30. Half of that is probably under 18. That leaves, we'll say...875 million people. Including those up to 36 might get us a clean 1 billion people.
Ok. That's one billion males that fit our 18-36 requirement.
Every one of these one billion males is placed into a hypothetical room. A speaker comes up to a podium and silences the crowd to ask a question.
"Can any of you motherfuckers punt further than 30 yards?"
