Monday: The day most likely to die!

MSN Health released an article called "25 Things You Probably Didn't Know About Your Body and Health." You can read it here

Now there are some interesting topics pointed out on this list. The first one I want to point out is number 5. "You can't get a tan from your computer screen. The Computer Tan Web site was created as a hoax to raise awareness about skin cancer." Shawn and I are what you say "Pale." So I obviously know this to be wrong.

Number six is "Obese people spend approximately $485 more on clothing, $828 on extra plane seats, and $36 more on gas each year than their thinner counterparts." This make sense to me. I do think they need to come out with a "Really Obese," title on the BMI scale. If you don't know what a BMI is... well you probably are obese yourself or a skinny lowlife. I do know that a lot of people here in America are obese, but when you think of obese you think of a 350 pound person. Which in fact most people over 200 pounds are considered obese.

The last one I'm going to talk about is number 10. "Your kitchen sink is dirtier than your bathroom." This goes back to the whole, "Fast food restaurants have more bacteria in the ice than a toilet." Well the toilet is usually kept clean using germ killing products. So is the kitchen sink really that bad? The answer is yes... yes it is. Please remove your kitchen sink immediately. Well depending on how you wash dishes is how bacteria free they will be. If you put soap on and rinse, you will be fine. If you put on soap and then let the dish rest in the sink, then you will probably not be fine. Everyone panic!

Make sure to check out the rest of the article. There are some really interesting points.
