A typical person lives 28,835 days. Each one of us knows what a day (24 hours) feels like, and how long it takes, and how variable any day can feel. But 28,835 days is just a number—unless you count it out in jelly beans.

Here’s some cool jelly bean facts from The Singularity Hub

  • 5,475 jelly beans takes us to 15 years old
  • the remaining 23,360 jelly beans sleeping, working, preparing or eating food, watching TV, doing chores, and commuting.
  • beyond that, we have 2,740 days to be creative and for leisure time

The site also says:

“Modern medicine has added over 11,000 jelly beans since the turn of the last century. This varies globally, but US life expectancy was 47.3 in 1900 and 78.7 in 2010.”
