Scientific breakthrough of the century.

Becuase it would take billions and billions of research dollars and man hours to come to this conclusion, so let us not go to waste.

Take today off, screw the bossman, it's your health we're taking about.

In Chicago the weather is lovely, around 60 or so, some light breeze, post your break picture on your blog. : )

Scientific breakthrough of the century. Good one tiaka. If it were only true.

Reuters and their headlines again. laziness is good for you, scientist finds. It seems that they are actually saying to relax and don't be overly stressed or over exercise. Duh, we knew that already.

This is nothing short of completely obvious. Heck, it's even been discovered before! (Type A personalities get more heart disease, no?)

So what did the article say? I would have clicked on it, bun then I would have had to drag the mouse aaaallllll the way up there and... man, I'm getting tired just thinking about it. Think I'm gonna go over to the bed and lie down. No, actually, I think I'll just lie down right here.

If dying earlier is the price for making my mark on the world, so be it.

I see this is the same guy who brought us such masterworks as "Eat Yourself Slim" and "Just Stay Young". There is obviously a good living to be made by telling people what they want to hear.

Anyone else read that and think;
"Hi, I'm Troy McClure, you may have seen me in such infomercials as......"
