Russian in 10 minutes
• Russian for 10 minutes
Website Slon.ru calculated that happened in the country, while you were drinking tea.
Suppose you are in the most comfortable setting - open the website, poured tea. What happens in Russia for the time you spend on this cup and to this article, which is about 10 minutes? The scheme provides an answer to this question.
The technique is quite simple - the statistics for the previous year (or part of 2011, if it is clear that the current rate change much) are divided into first 365 days, then for 24 hours, and then at 6 desyatiminutok. Since the rates vary year to year, we do not strive for greater accuracy, and make a reasonable rounding. What catches the eye in this picture? While you are drinking a cup of tea, the country of a million cups drank and another 194,000 liters of beer, that is healthy, our way of life can not be called. Absolutely terrible, that in Russia during our tea you bought 45 cars, but it is built only 41 meters (not kilometers, and the meter!) Of paved roads. In other words, two-lane road 41 meters in length will fit approximately 20 medium cars (sold from 45). You still do not understand the reasons for traffic jams?
