Proud to Be an (Average) American

Fascinating facts on an ordinary day in the good ole USA.


Time Magazine recently broke down what Americans are doing during an average day. Other than drinking 160,000+ bottles of Absolut vodka and downing 443,000+ large orders of BK fries, most of us are watching a whole lot of TV which, by the way, we have more of in our house than people to watch it. What does that tell you?

Good news: Nine out of 10 of us are moderately or very satisfied with work. (which is similar to the stats right here at Mom•Logic).

Which profession is the happiest? How many of us exercise?

Check out some of the other stats:

•The happiest profession? Priests, followed by housekeepers and butlers. Crazy, considering we didn't realize the butler position even existed outside of the movies.

•The least happy? The guy who pumps your gas. So be nice, people!

•83% say they don't exercise on any given day.

•2.5 hours is the amount of time we spend at home online. (only on Mom•Logic, right?)
