Boring Work Days and Me: 5 Things I've Learned Before 5:00pm - 4th of July Edition

1) Both Thomas Jefferson and John Adams died on July 4, 1826. James Monroe also died on July 4, but in 1831.
2) Auto club AAA estimates that 41.9 million Americans will travel over the July 4th holiday, the most in eight years.
3) Calvin Coolidge was born on July 4, 1872. He also has the distinction of being the Nationals' latest Racing President.

4) The 4th of July by the numbers:
  • 14,000 — number of firework displays across the nation each year
  • 150 million — number of hot dogs eaten by Americans 
  • 9 — number of times I will drunk-dial my ex before I black out
5) This amazing firework display is from the 2012 Let Freedom Sing Fireworks Show in Nashville, Tennessee. After the 2:05 mark, you'll feel like a five-year old again.

Happy Fourth!
