…Some stores are large?

Store Space Graph

If you add up all of the floor space for some of the most common stores in the US, you would see that Wal-Mart covers more acreage than all of Manhattan.

Continuing down the graph, McDonalds is about one and a half times as large as Central Park, and then the rest of the stores sort of stand in line from there.

Just be glad that you’re not the one that has to clean all of that up.

Edit: Wonder where they all are?

Here’s a video of Wal-Mart’s almost bacteria like growth:

…The Sahara is a runner’s paradise?

Running The Sahara Map

To say that Charlie Engle, Ray Zahab and Devin Lin are just runners would be like saying that Michael Jordan was just a basketball player. The three recently completed a 111-day run across the Sahara Desert from Senegal to Egypt, a 4,000-mile distance that required them to do an average of 2 marathons per day. Keep in mind, I did say the Sahara Desert, as in, the world’s largest desert, as in, really, really dry, and definitely not a place you’d want to go running for fun. Charlie, Ray and Devin aren’t just doing it for fun though; their goal is to raise money for H2O Africa, a clean water initiative with the goal of bringing fresh water to the people of Africa. There is also going to be a movie made about the experience called “Running The Sahara”, and I’m sure there are going to be quite a few stories to tell, so be on the look out for the release date. Now would probably be a good time to buy stock in a blister medicine company.
