But for the sake of the median, as most of us don't watch every day, lets say simply 2 hours of television a day.
2 hours X 7 days= 14 hours a week
14 X 4 weeks in a month= 56 hours a month
56 X 12 months = 672 hours a year (6,720 hours every decade)
672 hours a year divided by 24 hours a day = 26.8 continuous days a year we spend in front of the television!
That is almost one entire month of every year, 24 hours a day, of TV watching every year!
Think of what trade or craft you could master if you spent learning, lets say cooking or auto mechanics, if we studied it 24 hours a day for a whole month!
1 month X 85 years old (modern medicine is allowing our current generations to live longer on average) = 85 months
85 divided by 12 months = I will spend 7.1 continuous years of my life watching TV.
7.1 = Don't we have anything better to do with our lives than this?
