Watching TV For An Hour Shortens Your Life By 22 Minutes

A new study from some Australian scientists find that for every hour of watching TV, you lose 22 minutes of your life.  Well if you watch 6  hours of TV a day, you’ll lose 5 years off your life.  That stinks.

I heard somewhere else that for each cigarette you smoke, you lose 10 minutes or something.  It turns out to be 10 years off your life.  So if you watch TV and smoke, you’ll die 15 years earlier.

Next they’ll probably come out with a formula that for every hamburger you eat, that will be like  10 minutes off your life.  Or every beer you drink will be like 20 years off your life.  Before you know it, you’re already on borrowed time and you were suppose to expire a couple years ago already.

I think it’s important for us to remember that being active is a good thing for us.  But let’s not get carried away and scare everyone.  What’s the point of living if you don’t have any fun?

One more thing… I’m afraid of dying.  I’m afraid of getting older, but at the same time I would rather eat a hamburger, drink beer, watch a little tv and not live to be 100 years old.  There’s not a lot of 100 year old people that can do a whole lot.  That scares me even more.
