A friend of mine shared this statistics with me. I am sure it is, most probably, an old joke that half of the world knows. Also, I do not know where it is from originally, so I might violate some intellectual property rights here, BUT it\'s toooo damned good not to share, so here it goes:

Why I Am So Tired!!!

For a couple of years I\'ve been blaming it on lack of sleep, not enough sunshine, too much pressure from my job, poor blood or anything else I could think of.

But now I found out the real reason: \ I\'m tired because I\'m overworked… and here’s why:

The population of this country is 273 million. 140 million are retired,  which leaves 133 million to do the work.

There are 85 million in school,   which leaves 48 million to do the work.

Of this, there are 29 million employed by the federal government,  which leaves 19 million to do the work.

2.8 million are in the armed forces, which leaves 16.2 million to do the work.

Take from that total the 14,800,000 people who work for state and city governments   and that leaves 1.4 million to do the work.

At any given time there are 188,000 people in hospitals, which leaves 1,212,000 to do the work.

As of today, there are 1,211,998 people in prisons. \ That leaves JUST TWO PEOPLE to do the work...

YOU and ME!!

And there you are sitting there, at your computer, reading jokes.   Nice, real nice...
