How Long Would It Take?

How Long Would It Take?

If you want to earn an Associate’s Degree, it will likely take two years. A Bachelor’s degree can take four years. It can take 20 or 30 years to pay off a mortgage. But what if you have other aspirations or are just curious?” Here are some examples of how long it would take…

To Save a Million Dollars

Not including interest, one would need to sock away $1,000 per month for 88 years to save a million dollars. This demonstrates the power of smart investing and compounding interest.

To Walk From New York to Los Angeles

The road distance from New York City to Los Angeles is about 2,799 miles. If you walked at an average pace of 3 mph, it would take a total of 955 hours to walk the route. Walking 8 hours a day, 7 days a week, it would take a total of 116 days, or four months, to make the trek.

To Grow a Foot of Hair

For the average person, hair grows at about a rate of one-half inch per month. That means it would take about two years to grow a foot of hair.

To Fill a Pool From a Garden Hose

This, of course, would depend on the size of the pool. It can also vary if more than one hose is being used. If a garden hose delivers an average of 19 gallons per minute (GPM), a 10,000 gallon capacity pool would take about 17 hours to fill.

To Fly Around the World Non-Stop

Refueling issues aside, it would take the average commercial airliner about 50 hours to circumnavigate the globe. The question is, unless you enjoy spending two days sealed in an aluminum tube, why would you want to?

To Watch Every Game of Your Favorite Baseball Team for an Entire Season

With an average Major League Baseball game lasting just over three hours and with 162 games in the regular season, it would take 486 hours, or 20 days and six hours. That’s non-stop, 24 hours a day… not including rain delays.

To Watch Every Game of Your Favorite NFL Team in the Regular Season

Since there are now 17 games in the regular NFL season, and each game takes about three hours and fifteen minutes to complete, it would take 55 and a quarter hours to watch an entire season of your favorite NFL team. That’s just over two days non-stop.

To Drink a Full Keg of Beer

This depends on how much beer you drink each day. A full-size keg contains ½ barrel of beer or 15.5 gallons. That is about 165 12-ounce servings. If you drank four beers a day, the keg would be empty by day 42.
