Did you know?? // random America

(My crazy chalk art)

100 acres of pizza are served every day in the U.S.

Russia and North America are less than 3 miles apart at the nearest point. 

One American consumes as many resources as 32 Kenyans. 

The U.S. bought Alaska from Russia for $7.2 million in 1876.

                                               Every Tweet Americans send are being archived by the Library of Congress.

Christmas was illegal in the U.S until 1836 as it was considered an ancient pagan holiday. 

80% of Nevada is owned by the U.S. government.

Former U.S presidents John Adams and Thomas Jefferson died within hours of each another, and both on the 4th of July in 1826. 

The Four Corner's monument is the only point in the United States shared by four states. 

The U.S has no official language. 

The banana is the most populated fruit in the United States. 

 Every day, more than 100,000 people get a speeding ticket in the U.S. 

There are more TVs in the U.S than people in the U.K. 

Before the Holocaust, Hitler gave the U.S, Great Britain, and many other nations a chance to take in Jewish refugees. They refused. 




Did you know any of these??
If so, which do you think are crazy?
