1. Dentist.

2. Nurse practitioner.

3. Software developer.

4. Physician.

5. Dental hygienist.

6. Physical therapist.

7. Computer systems analyst.

8. Information security analyst.

Don't get me wrong -- I like a good pizza-pie. But, once again, I'm well below the average Amereican when it comes to my pizza consumption.

According to a new survey, the average American eats 5,952 slices of pizza in their lifetime, or about eight slices a month.
And our Top Ten "dream" toppings are:

1. Lobster.

2. Shrimp.

3. Crab.

4. Filet mignon.

5. Chicken . . . which you can get everywhere.

6. Pineapple . . . which you can get everywhere.

7. Ham . . . again, it's available.

8. Mayo jaga . . . a combo of mayonnaise, potatoes, and bacon that's big in Japan.

9. A combination of curry, coconut, and kale. (???)

10. Caviar.

So if you live to be 70, that's 5,952 slices in a lifetime. But one in ten people eat 36 slices a month . . . which is about a medium pizza a week . . . and works out to just under 27,000 slices.

A news anchor in West Virginia named Dan Thorn recently used some downtime to put on some music, and dance around like an idiot in his chair.  And his co-anchor sat next to him the whole time looking unimpressed.


At one point he grabbed her iPad while she was using it, and started waving it around.  But she just ignored him and used her computer instead.
