Brits Would Sooner Die Than Exercise

couch.jpegI love this story: a survey says that even the threat of death won’t get a majority of Britons to exercise and maintain their health. Just “38% of people questioned by YouGov said they would do more exercise if their life depended on it,” according to the BBC story. Says Mike Knapton, director of prevention and care at the British Heart Foundation: “For many people, exercise has become an ugly word, something to avoid at all costs.”

Wow. And people call Americans lazy. Reminds me of Idiocracy, the 1/3 great movie by Mike Judge that, tragically, nobody saw.
