And God bless the volunteers who do such a good job.
I ask God to bless the paid firefighters too.
One time I was 601 times sweeter so I can be really sweet at times. I wish they could come out with a sucralose version of brown sugar.
May the Lord be with you as He is with me.
Assuming a 334 million population I get about 88 humans per square mile when I do the math. I don’t know if I would consider that nearly 100. A number of 27,000 people per square mile would be about 1 person per 1,000 square feet. But consider that many of these people in New York are stacked vertically in high rise buildings. That would give them a much larger available space to exist in than just the land surface area.
Well then, I’m glad I don’t live in NYC. Just fun to watch it in Seinfeld reruns.
I use Splenda, and it doesn’t taste to me as sweet as real sugar, which I try to avoid.
Then New Yorkers should stop dumping on New Jersey so much, like people used to do in my Federal office.
Advice for people pretending to be Swedish: never use the name “Splenda” – they’ll know you’re an artificial Swede-ner.
Well, including a lot of vertical space in NYC there are tens of thousands of people per square mile. Thus the temptation for them to yell from their rooftops or in the streets at the top of their lungs from time to time.
Take care, may famed people stacker Louis “At 15 Years Old I opened A Can Of Sardines And The Rest Is History” Sullivanord be with you, and gesundheit.
Ripley’s needs to learn the law of physics. It is impossible for 27K people to occupy the same space because no two objects (or people) can physically occupy the same amount of space.
Hurray for firefighters all over, whether or not they get paid for their services.
So why isn’t a packet of Splenda 600 times smaller than a packet of sugar?
I was a volunteer fireman in my younger days, even the asst. chief. I worked with some awesome men & women.
Last I read there are something like 8 people per square mile in Montana…..imagine….no nosy,loud,ignorant neighbors…..
27,000 people per square mile is 1,032 square feet per person. I can live in that square footage. But don’t expect me to live in a large city. I don’t understand the difference I feel.
On the subject of artificial sweeteners – I can’t believe the horribly bitter Sweet n Low (Sacharin)is still around!
How many square miles in the US have no people on them?
So, remind me again WHY would anyone want to live in NY City?
Even more unbelievable than 27,000 people in a square mile (640 acres) in New York City was the population of Andersonville prison, a Confederate POW facility during the Civil War. It began at roughly 16 acres, and was enlarged to 24 acres, and at its peak held 31,695 men. But not all of the 24 acres were useable. There was a 3 acre “swamp” in the middle, and a no-man’s-land for 19 feet around the inside perimeter of the prison stockade. To set foot in that no-man’s-land resulted in getting shot. Mrs. Fogwhistle’s great-great grandfather, a Union soldier, was held prisoner there for an extended time.
Well, go live in Namibia, Africa, about the least dense country on Earth but now loaded with oil, diamonds and uranium. So go make your fortune!
I believe that Dover, DE is the only state capital whose fire department is staffed by volunteers.
God bless the globalists who can turn something natural into a Frankenstein creation!
