Crayola... 100 billion served
How Much is 100 Billion? It's taken us 93 years to make that many Crayola crayons. We know it's a lot... But still, it's hard to picture just what 100 billion crayons would look like. Here are some ideas: * If laid end to end, they would reach the moon and back 12 times. * They could circle the equator 240 times (although they would probably melt). * They could be laid across North America, from coast to coast, more than 1,900 times. * They would fill 1,730 Olympic-sized swimming pools. * If we handed out 100 billion crayons today, every man, woman and child in the world would each have their own 16-count box of Crayola crayons. If we handed them out just in the U.S., each person would have four 96 boxes. * If stacked end to end, 100 billion Crayola crayons would be 268 million times taller than the World Trade Center. * 100 billion crayons would create a drawing that would cover 35,000 square miles. You could color in the whole state of Maine, and still have enough crayon left over for Rhode Island!
