5 Studies Reveal 5 NOT Surprising Ways Your TV Is Slowly Killing You

excerpt from above:
Quote:
You’ve accepted the idea that TV makes you dumber. You know there are lots of more edifying things you could be doing with your time than cheering on the contestants on “Survivor.”

And unless you’re working out to an exercise video, you know those hours sprawled out in front of the screen are going to make you fatter - not to mention the impact of all that junk food you’ve been tempted to scarf down during the commercial breaks.

But you’ll be surprised to learn the host of other bad things TV can do to you...

1. TV makes you deader.
2. TV makes you drunker
3. TV can make your kid pregnant.
4. TV weakens your bones.
5. TV makes you less engaging.

So if you're looking for a way to bump off your spouse don't hire a hit man. Just supply them with a endless amount of junk food, beer and TV.
LOL

Or, to get rid of an unwanted spouse -- or house guest that stayed too long, just get a hook up to high speed internet and disconnect the tv. Send the beer, and junk food next door to the good looking divorcee and head the unwanted subject in that direction.
