As American's, We Threw Down Some Cash on Valentine's Day!

Here's how the numbers went: We as a nation, managed to spend over 13 billion bucks, exchanged 180 million cards of which 85%  were purchased by women, and managed to conceive 11, 000 children. I'm not sure how they determined that last figure, but I'd like to know how you apply for that research position.

The gift most given appears to be candy and the 24,000 florists in the United States of Love cranked out over 400 million in flower revenue.  A parting word of wisdom for you guys who don't think this all matters, apparently 53% of women out there will end a relationship if they don't see a little something showing up on this hallowed day for lovers.
