I came across this infographic today while checking twitter and could not wait to post it.
The 16 years that an average American spends is based on a 24 hour day. Since 8 hours on an average go to sleep, the 16 years translate to 24 years of waking time.
Also there is no average American which means either you are above average or below average. So, what is your personal average? How many of years of your waking time are you planning to give away glued to the tube? Is it worth?
