The Today Show had a list of some of the stuff we consume every day. Be afraid. Be very afraid.
Over 35 million servings of Bud Light
More than 2 million BK Whoppers
Over 300,000 packs of Pampers
More than 325,000 Barbie dolls -- bought, not eaten
132 thousand pounds of coffee per day drunk at Starbuck's
500 thousand Twinkies
People are being paid to find this stuff out. Think about that.
I'd like to know how many gallons of mouthwash, how many miles of toilet paper, how many feet of condoms [how do they measure condoms anyway?] how many yards of licorice, the red stuff, and how many bottles of hair gel are consumed daily.
I will ponder these and other deep thoughts as I leave now to drive downtown to work. Hmmm, I wonder how many thousands of flat tires there are every day? How many empty bags of chips are in the back seats of cars?
Not mine, of course. Yogurt cups maybe.
By the way, why is the time stamp on my entries posted with EASTERN DAYLIGHT TIME? I live in the MIDWEST. It should be CDT. Is there a button I shouldn't have pushed? Is there someone in India who's messing with me?
