Have you ever heard of a statistic that blew your mind? I forget the exact number, but the markup on diamonds is something like 300%? Others I've heard: - In America, 33% of the cost of every car goes to pay the workers health benefits. - The top 3 New York Yankees salaries are higher than some other baseball teams entire teams salary. Any others? I know it's hard to actually confirm these, but they are statistics I've heard.
