Apparently, Americans consume a whole bunch of it.
In the spirit of end-of-the-semester blog-posting, check this out.
So, Americans drink more bottled water than beer, are more likely to get whacked by a wheelchair than run over by a lawnmowers, and are only slightly more likely to get into an accident with a bicycle than with a bed...
Hmm. That bed one makes me suspicious.
But! Still more: "Adolescents and adults now spend, on average, more than 64 days a year watching television, 41 days listening to the radio and a little over a week using the Internet. Among adults, 97 million Internet users sought news online last year, 92 million bought a product, 91 million made a travel reservation, 16 million used a social or professional networking site and 13 million created a blog."
Hey, y'all we're in good company! Us and about 13 million other people are out there blogging away for the first time in their lives....
Whew. What a semester! Better grab some bottled water and go find a television to recover--but watch out for any bicycles and wheelchairs on the way, and (above all) go nowhere near your bed!
