Fact of the Week

WEEK of JULY 8, 2019
(The last one of the 2018-2019 school year! See you in the fall!)

Joey "Jaws" Chesnut won his 12th Nathan's Famous Fourth of July International Hot Dog Eating Contest after downing 71 hot dogs in 10 minutes. This was a little shy of his record of 74 hot dogs, set in last year's annual contest. 74 hot dogs is equivalent to about 22,000 calories. In order to burn that off, Joey would have to do jumping jacks for 26 hours, do 21 hours of freestyle swimming or play 30 straight hours of Wii Dance Dance Revolution!

Week of July 1, 2019
Outerbridge Crossing, which connects Staten Island to New Jersey, is named for Eugenius Outerbridge. The word "Crossing" was used to avoid naming it "Outerbridge Bridge."
