60 Seconds

Every 60 seconds:

&250 babies are born(113 are born into poverty, 15 have birth defects)
&The average american household makes $.096
&Oprah makes $523
&Nike makes $36,505
&3 violent crimes are committed in the USA
&55,757 barrels of oil are used
&Lightning strikes the earth 360 times
&There are 5 earth quakes
&120,673 pounds of edible food is thrown away in the united states
&107 people die(18 from starvation)

Illusions: may make you feel sick if your sensitive to these sort of things.

So you see it spinning? They actually aren't. It's so odd.

This one shows the green dots to be moving away from the center.

I hope you all had a wonderful and safe new year!
