44.5-Hot dogs (with bun) eaten last year by Takeru "Tsunami" Kobayashi in TWELVE MINUTES during the Nathan's Hot Dog eating contest.

293 million - Projected number of U.S. residents on this July 4th. In July 1776, there were about 2.5 million people living in the colonies (clearly not including Native Americans).

150 million - Hot dogs expected to be consumed. There's about a 1-in-4 chance the hot dogs originated in Iowa, which has 15.5 million hogs and pigs - about a quarter of U.S. total.

$157.2 million - The value of fireworks imported from China in 2003. Total imports were $163.1 million.

11 - Places with "Independence" in their name. The most populous of these is in Missouri, with 113,027 residents.

And add to that...

2- The number of US Presidents who died on that date. John Adams, and Thomas Jefferson both passed on July 4th 1826.



If you don't stand for SOMETHING, you'll fall for ANYTHING.

And you can add to that:

1 - The number of US Presidents born on that date (Calvin Coolidge - 7/4/1872).
