Statistics to Ponder

  1. From “The life-changing magic of simplistic solutions to complex problems”.”The average American home contains around 300,000 “things”, while the average person spends 153 days looking for misplaced items in a lifetime.”
  2. One of the courses pro golfers are playing this week, The South Course at Torrey Pines in La Jolla, California, is 7,698 yards long.
  3. More factoid than statistic. First time five international players appeared on an NBA court at the same time, April 2001, Dallas Mavericks. Obinna Ekezie (Nigeria), Eduardo Najera (Mexico), Steve Nash (Canada), Dirk Nowitzki (Germany), Zhizhi Wang (China) . A 7’6″ human bean pole was riding the bench, can you name him? Hint: Some consider Utah another country. Don’t say Mark Eaton, who I once rode with in an elevator at UCLA. He was a mere 7’4″ and retired eight years earlier.
  4. From “Wal-Mart to Boost Wages for Most U.S. Store Workers“. “Wal-Mart loses about half a million store workers a year.” That’s out of almost 1.2 million hourly employees. Over 4 of 10 employees walk every year.
