Call of duty black ops - Functional Maths resource?

My lovely husband alerted me to the statistics that are popping up on the call of duty black ops load screen.
These are updated daily (he thinks) but today they include:
  • Players have run around the world 19127 times
  • 167 billion rounds of ammo fired
  • 132% of the worlds population have been killed
  • 11,178 years spent playing
  • 308% of the the GDP of Ireland in USD has been spent
Could be used for an interesting starter for a functional maths lesson or GCSE group?
