Current posting stats: 7826 per hour, 130 per minute
Browse through http://www.livejournal.com/stats/latest.bml sometime, that's even scarier. There's a surprising number of people posting in Russian, some in German, and the occasional other language. Haven't seen any Chinese yet - maybe there's a Chinese equivalent of LJ somewhere ?
(Not that I've remembered much of the Chinese I studied at Uni, but I keep telling myself that one day I'll have incentive and free time)
