The Way I See It #51

Americans spend an average of 29 hours a week watching television — which means in a typical life span we devote 13 uninterrupted years to our TV sets!

Cutting down just an hour a day would provide extra years of life — for music and family, exercise and reading, conversation and coffee.

  1. I like it. To put it in the perspective of an average lifespan is sobering. Imagine adding pointless websurfing, online game play, Facebook browsing, etc to the hours of TV. I wonder how many years that would account for.
