Corollary to Feb. 8th useless fact Corollary:
>
Useless fact of the day: An average of 13 boxes of jello are purchased every second in the United States. (Corollary: Assuming a box of jello makes 10 jello shots, and that jello is only used for jello shots (the only thing it's good for), that means 11,232,000 jello shots are made in the US each day)
>

If we assume .5 oz of Vodka goes into each shot, Americans drink 216,000 - 26 oz bottles of Vodka per day, in Jello shots alone!
I wish I had stocks in Seagrams or Absolut!

If the estimate of 278,058,881 people in the U.S. is accurate, and 66.27% are between the ages of 15-64 (figures from the CIA's 2001 World Fact Book), then those 11,232,000 shots are being split up between 184,269,620 people (I'm not certain how many teens or seniors are doing Jello shooters, but cut me a little slack here). That means there are 0.06 shooters per person per day, or roughly one every two weeks.

I have *never* had a Jello shooter, and I've been in the 15-64 age group for quite a while. This means I have (roughly) 350 Jello shooters coming to me, and I'm here to collect!

Fortunately, my weekend is free :D

College Girl, Is Feb 8 your favourite day? or, is Feb 8 your favourite useless fact? I will assume that it is your favourite day because of my post, and the brightness I brought into your day.
Glad I could help, and you are welcome...:D
