E-mail Grab-bag 5-14-2007

E-mail grab-bag

We all get those e-mails that tell jokes, have links to goofy, strange, or otherwise interesting links on YouTube, or other such items. Those e-mails are usually forwarded to us, and then we in turn forward them to someone else. Well, since I have a blog, I’ll just post them here in what I’ll call the E-mail Grab-Bag. Then you can decide if you want to forward them.


FW: Subject: 2006 Study

A 2006 study found that the average American walks about 900 miles a year.
Another study found that Americans drink an average of 22 gallons of beer a year.

That means, on average, Americans get about 41 miles per gallon.
Not Bad.
