A thread for currently trending news topics...

Who are the big TV watchers? <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://mashable.com/2011/08/17/tv-lifespan-study/">http://mashable.com/2011/08/17/tv-lifespan-study/</a><!-- m -->
And does this count for people who work in front of a computer all day? After all, you're basically doing the same thing but with a bit of hand movement.

I work behind a monitor but also do this everyday. When does that mean I die? Do they cancel each other out?

Breezer involves some quite rigourous hand movement both at pc and tv....

Im sure theres a study relating to diminishing eyesight in this case also.

I really hate studies like this, just utter bilge! I sometimes watch around 6 hours of tv in a day, but i also ride (mostely) 3 times a week, and i ride to work every day and do a lot of running around, carrying heavy boxes, running up and down stairs, so how the hell is watching lots of tv gonna shorten my lifespan??

Speaking of TV, big brother starts tonight, despite channel 4 recognising it as a pile of fetid monkey w@nk, Richard Desmond of the Star, Channel 5 and whatever shonky old grot mag he owns, has snapped it up and will attempt to ring some more cash out of a format that should have died years ago. Don't watch this tedious and poisonous piece of lowest common denomenator crud, but I'm sure you wouldn't anyway...

Rant over
Keep it foolish...
