The average human lives 28,835 days. We all know exactly what a day feels like, how long it takes, and how variable its passing can feel. But 28,835 days is just a number—unless you count it out in jelly beans.  5,475 jelly beans takes us to fifteen years old, the very edge of adulthood. We will consume most of our remaining 23,360 jelly beans sleeping, working, preparing or eating food, watching television, doing chores, and commuting. After all that, we have 2,740 days to be creative, commune with nature, or text our best friend.
