I rarely take the CDC's statistics as something to bet the farm on but this time they may be on to something.
A slow moving barge going down the river is an apt symbol.
Using data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention State Indicator Report on Physical Activity from 2010, we've ranked the 10 laziest states with stats on physical activity of adults and high-schoolers.
No. 1: Tennessee
Physically active adults: 51.8 percent
Highly active adults: 29.9 percent
Adults with no leisure time physical activity: 27.3 percent
Students (grades 9-12) that are physically active: 24.3 percent
Students (grades 9-12) that have daily physically education: 30.4 percent
The military may really need a pre-boot camp fat farm here in Tennessee to keep the recruitment numbers up.
I'm wondering if the CDC used stats on what is many Tennesseans biggest form of exercise ... walking the aisles of Wal-Mart. Even that may be cut back as the CEO is saying that the 'everyday low prices' are going up.
Happy April Fools Day. The joke's on us.
Censorship is no joke. Anthony Lawson strikes back at youtube for the censoring of his video "Holocaust, Hate Speech and Were the Germans so Stupid?"
