Default The average American

A recent study conducted by Harvard University found that the average American walks about 900 miles a year.

Another study by the American Medical Association found that Americans drink, on average, 22 gallons of alcohol a year.

This means, on average, Americans get about 41 miles to the gallon.

Kind of makes you proud to be an American

Gotta love statistics. I wonder how many Americans actually do both?

I always remember this about statistics, and especially averages: if your hair is on fire and your feet are encased in a block of ice, your average body temperature is probably just about right
