Can you quickly evaluate whether or not a reported statistic seems reasonable?
[Sources deliberately not cited for the following statistics; verify them yourself rather than trusting this page blindly.]
U.S. Population -- if something happens to almost every American once in their lifetime, how many each year?
Average individual's time spent at work in a year
Power of 2 -- how quickly does doubling grow?
Rule of 72 -- approximately how many years are required to double something at a given annual percentage growth?
