In summary, the average American is overweight, bordering on obese. They make $15 per hour and have nothing saved for an emergency and barely anything for retirement. This might be due to spending money on the 3700 calories that they eat per day. They do have a smartphone. Thank God! Because how else will they consume 11 hours of media a day. They consume so much media and food that they barely have half an hour for reading and exercising and even sleep less because of it. Despite all of this media consumption, they can't name one of the 9 priests that rule the nation nor the form of their government. Remembering how their government is formed and ruled might be hard for them to focus on with the tremendous pain and depression in their lives that causes them to seek pharmacological remedies. Sadly, the average American faces this struggle alone.
