We all know the rap, "In West Philadelphia born and raised, on the playground is where I spent most of my days...," OK, I'll just stop now. Those little words are the theme song to old TV show The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, and because someone loved a young Will Smith so much, he/she figured out what a cab ride from Philly to Bel-Air would be—since the opening credit shows Smith taking a cabbie west.
According to our buddies at Break, the person determined it would cost $7,290! Oh, Will, why didn't you just take a flight?
Well someone with a little time on their hands and presumably nostalgia for 90's television did some number crunching this week and figured out how much exactly a cab would cost to travel such a long distance. Y'know, just in case any one of us are able to travel across the country to escape poverty and crime thanks to rich distant relatives.
So how many kidneys do we gotta sell to take a cab from here to there? The cost would be somewhere around $7,000 smackeroos! $7,290 to be exact. Of course that's not a bad investment considering your "auntie and uncle" probably have millions of damn dollars.
That would honestly be the worst trip in the history of mankind. Could you imagine spending that much time in the back of a cab, making the cross-country that, according to Google Maps, would take about 40 hours in a car? Dude, no thank you.
