975.

Isn't It Annoying...

...When you have to wait in a queue (or line) for something,
and you carefully pick out which one to go stand in,
it still turns out that you picked the slowest moving one of all!!!

***
Did you know:
* The average person spends about 1 Hour a day just waiting for stuff to happen.... 
* Over the course of a 70 year life, this translates to roughly 2-3 years of that life spent doing nothing else but waiting. (This is a pretty good reason to get yourself a smartphone, so you use this precious 4% of your life playing Angry Birds).
* Statistically speaking, you are much more likely to go stand in a slow queue than in the fast queue. For example, assume there are 4 parallel queues and you carefully pick one to stand in. The chance of your having picked the fastest one is only 1 in 4 and the chance of you picking a slower queue is 3 in 4. If it feels like you always end up picking the slow-moving queue, well guess what - you're right! :)
