life expectancy and zombies

I reduced my life expectancy by 43.6 minutes last night by watching 2 hours of The Walking Dead, episodes one and two which I Sky +’d to watch after I came back from Portugal.  It’s awesome show, if you haven’t watched it yet, I do recommend it.  The show is spooky in places, but that’s not what has shaved minutes off of my life.  What has is the new statistic from the British Journal of Sports Medicine website that says if you’re over 25 then on average every hour of TV watched reduces your life expectancy by 21.8 minutes.  Those folks who watch six hours of TV a day live 4.8 hours less than those folks who watch none.  So while I recommend the show, if you are concerned about your life expectancy dropping, then read the graphic novel instead.  It’s just as good.
