The Shanghai Expo 2010

The queue...in Expo 2010

Recently, the Shanghai expo 2010 have come to an end… fairly successfully, in words of Chinese officials.

According to the news, over 72 million people have visited the expo fair in Shanghai…

…Also according to news, the queue to simply get into one of the site could take up to 8 hours.

Now I did a little simple calculation on just how much time people have wasted waiting to get into Shanghai Expo 2010.

Average waiting hour: 3 hours  Visitors: 72 000 000

Do a little multiplication…

The answer is:

216 000 000 hours

i.e. 9 000 000 days

i.e 24 657 years

i.e 2054 decades.
