Pretty in Pink

Itrust your weekend is going well, and hope it's not too hot/cold wherever you are in the world. My weekend was filled with finishing my paper for University and preparing for my trial tomorrow. I did make room for some pleasurable activity, wandering around one of my favorite bookshops. I found this quirky book called "Numbers".
It's a collection of some of the most peculiar numbers you could ever wish to find. It captured my attention, and made me laugh out loud at some of the "numbers", i felt compelled to buy it.
Let me share some "numbers" with you :o)

Did you know :
# The USA spends $96 million dollars on nuclear weapons everyday.

#The number of Americans injured everyday by shopping carts..5.

# 59 is the life expectancy of men in Nepal.
