How much time we have. In jelly beans.

Jelly beans first surfaced in 1861 when Boston confectioner William Schrafft urged people to send his jelly beans to soldiers during the American Civil War. It was not until July 5, 1905 that the mentioning of jelly beans was published in the Chicago Daily News.

And now, it’s used as a measurement to tell you how much time you have left on Earth.

Enjoy your day.

I’m hungry.
