Lunaville: The waste is apparent, but I'd love to know how they arrived at the conclusion that the average American woman owns seven pairs of jeans. I own three pair of jeans: two purchased from thrift stores, one pair purchased from the mall. My three sisters each own three pair of jeans. Two of them will no longer set foot in a thrift store and only buy new clothes. My mother and my one surviving Aunt, still healthy enough to buy and wear clothes, each own two pair of jeans. I don't think my mother has owned more than two pair of jeans her entire life. And she wears jeans almost every day. She always said "one to wear, one to wash". She thinks my sisters and I are lazy because we try to get out of having to do laundry every single day by owning three pair of jeans. Of course, with kids we still have to do laundry every single day.

Ha. You wash jeans prior to the unbearable smell forcing you to.

You make several good points. I could have swore Africa as a continent was still under $1T USD, though obviously there's a LONG way to go. It's good to see that the economy there is starting to ramp up. The more you know, right?
As an aside, I'm wondering how long it will be before China starts eating up all the iron for itself, starving Africa out.

/thank you for talking to me seriously.
