Movie Concessions Mark Ups Revealed!

Movie theater food is OBSCENELY overpriced.  You knew that . . . but here's exactly how much.  It's amazing any movie theater could ever go out of business when they're working with THESE margins.

 

 

A business school professor at the University of California, Irvine analyzed how much the average movie theater charges for different food at their concession stand versus how much it costs . . . and it's really spectacular.  Check it out . . .

 

 

A large bucket of popcorn sells for an average of $8.15 . . . and costs them 90 cents. 

 

 

A large soda sells for an average of $6.31 . . . and costs them 51 cents including the cup, lid, and straw.  ($6.31 seems high to me, but even at $4 or $5 that's still a massive markup.)

 

 

And a box of candy sells for an average of $4.25 . . . and costs them around $2.  So in terms of markup, that's the worst deal for them.

The Things We Love In OTHER Peoples Bathrooms

Using the bathroom at someone else's house is always a gamble . . . you NEVER know what you'll find in there.

 

So what's something you're ALWAYS happy to see in someone else's bathroom, other than the obvious answer, toilet paper?  Here are six of the most popular answers . . .

 

 

1.  A lit candle.  It smells nice, keeps the room from being completely dark when you walk in, and makes you feel like you're someplace super classy.

 

 

2.  A small trash can next to the toilet with a lid on it.

 

 

3.  A fan that can mask noises and circulate air.

 

 

4.  A clean hand towel to wipe your hands on, so you're not using someone's shower towel.

 

 

5.  A lock on the door.

 

 

6.  A plunger.  Just in case.

How Long Since you Rocked A Swimsuit?

You're not alone . . . we're ALL self-conscious about wearing bathing suits.  Maybe we should all move to Europe, where there's absolutely no stigma about jamming the fleshiest body into the tiniest bathing suit possible.

 

 

According to a new survey, 7% of Americans haven't worn a swimsuit in public in at least FIVE YEARS.

 

 

20% haven't worn one in public in 10 years.

 

 

And 5% have NEVER worn one in public.

 

 

That's one out of three people who haven't worn a bathing suit in public since 2009.
