Snapple Fact 

So today I get home from work, pop open a diet peach Snapple and like any other time read my daily Snapple fact. Did you know there are three times the amount of cars in Los Angeles than people? Typically I read my snapple fact and merely say "Huh, that's cool", or "I did not know that". Even though I didn't know this fact, this stat blew my mind.

First of all I can barely afford to pay one car payment let alone three. Given some in L.A. probably don't have a car, that means that some people have more than three cars. Why? No wonder our gas prices are through the roof. We as Americans over indulge in everything. That is why we are also the most obese country in the world, but that is besides the fact.

There are 3,694,820 people in L.A. according to areaconnect.com. That means there are 11,084,460 automobiles in L.A. alone. That is an astounishing number. No wonder the freeways are jammed packed and the air looks like God is smoking a cigar, exhaling all his second hand smoke in L.A.

That leads me to my other thought about Snapple facts. Is someone's job at Snapple just to come up with meaningless information? What a great job. Scour the internet and encyclopedias all day for information that you will probably never need. Pretty cool if you ask me.

Snapple fact #50 : Mosquitoes have 47 teeth. (who'd thunk it?)

That's a really cool snapple site, thanks for getting that out there.

I can't believe that about L.A., I never realized that there were that many cars out there. I wonder if the ratio is bigger in NYC.

On a completely seperate and random note, I was floating across blog-land this morning and found this incredibly disturbing, and at the same time, hilarious photo. Maybe they can put this under a Snapple bottle.

Why was there no follow on bankruptcy then? The bailout of AIG FP went to (wow power leveling) hedge funds that bound credit swaps on Lehman failing or others betting on rating (wow power leveling) declines. AIG has drained over 100 billion from the government. Which had to go to those who bet on failures and downgrades. Many of whom (power leveling)were hedge funds. I-banks that had offsetting swaps needed the money from the AIG bailout or they would have been caught. Its an (wow powerleveling) insiders game and it takes just a little bit too much time for most people to think (wow gold) through where the AIG 100 billion bailout money went to, hedge funds and players, many of whom hire from the top ranks of DOJ, Fed, Treasury, CAOBO
