Hmmm...M&M's

400 million M & M's are produced each day woldwide!

Now, according to scientist Bernard Tao, a M & M is an oblate spheroids with a major axis radius of 0.6 cm and a minor axis radius of 0.3 cm, with a volume of 0.4524 cm3.

Question: How many days of M & M production are needed to stretch around the world, if the M & M's are arranged in a straight line along the equator?

Question 2: How many days (or years?) of M & M production are needed to fill the new Dallas Cowboy's stadium?

See the Humor for this Week, as it includes an unexpected extension of these questions.
