Reading to justify your slobbery

Time magazine always has some fabulously interesting stories on its site, really first class.

But one is a particular attention-grabber.

Why Exercise Won’t Make You Thin has been on Time’s ‘Most Read’ list for upwards of a month! Why?

Because, I’m guessing, thousands of people read and re-read the story to justify their own slovenliness. It’s got to be.

You’d never want to read about how exercise isn’t helping you to stay trim if you do exercise. You don’t want to hear about that. But if you don’t exercise? God, you couldn’t read enough about how exercise does nothing for you (the obvious extrapolation).

Anyway, congratulations Time on a wonderful mix of really interesting stories.
