As 2010 comes to a close, I’ve been reading a lot of “Year in Review” stories. Here are some surprising statistics I found for 2010:
*Since gay marriage became legal in Iowa in 2009, there have been 7 reported unions between male prisoners.
*Paris France has long been the number one travel destination in the world, however in 2010 the more people traveled to Amsterdam then any other city.
*Not surprising, the most downloaded performer of 2010 on iTunes was Justin Bieber
*The number one cable show of the year was Sponge Bob Square Pants with an average of 7 million viewers an episode.
*Sarah Palin has more fans on Facebook then Barack Obama and Bill Clinton combined
*Despite the housing market taking a hard hit this past year, Las Vegas has moved into the number 10 spot of largest US cities. (by population) It was number 16 the previous year.
*World over, the world’s largest corporation is Sinopec, China’s leading gas company. It beat out Exxon Mobil for the top spot.
*When 5500 people were polled by Yahoo, more people could name the Kardashian sisters then the current Vise President of the United States.
**All Statistics listed are completely made up and should not be taken seriously.
