1. #### Asher:

I like the marriage joke. Is this based on an actual statistic?

2. #### Alexander:

Not to nitpick, but if someone got married, divorced and married again to another person, would you count them twice? π

3. #### Tanya Khovanova:

Asher, I think that the marriage joke is made up.

4. #### Vika:

Well, it is possible theoretically.
If a person marries, divorces, than marries again during the same year, those two marriages will account for three people.

5. #### L33tminion:

@Vika; The real geeky joke will be the sheer quantity of people that click on this post intending to leave exactly that comment.

6. #### Andrew:

I think the last joke works a bit better in German β did it perhaps come from a non-English source? π

7. #### Alan E.:

@l33tminion I feel really good that I was not alone in the endeavor to prove that joke wrong. Imagine how many of the same people commenting here would have corrected the joke teller in real life. I know I would.

I would say that counting up to 31,556,926 will take 3 or 4 years. It depends how fast one can pronounce long numbers π
