To continue on with the "weighty" theme, consider those tasty Krispy Kreme glazed doughnuts:

Fact 1: To burn off the calories for each Krispy Kreme glazed doughnut eaten, men and women need to exercise on a treadmill for 15 and 21 minutes respectively.

Fact 2: In North America alone, Krispy Kreme produces 7.5 million doughnuts each day.

Question: Using the basis of one year of producing donuts at this rate, what are the respective amounts of treadmill time needed by men and women to burn off the calories associated with eating this large number of donuts?

A Final Fact to Freak Out Over: In one year, Krispy Kreme uses enough chocolate to fill five Olympic-sized swimming pools and thirty-three 18-wheel semi-trucks full of sprinkles (about 1.3 million pounds).
