ABC reports that Americans fit 31 hours of activity in each 24 hour day. Driving and cell phone usage are the most obvious doublings. Watching TV, working on the computer, and ignoring the wife is the most obvious tripling.
On my lunch hour I go to the gym and walk on the treadmill, but I can’t do it unless I have something to read — it drives me nuts just staring around.

I’d also like to take a calligraphy course, too, but that probably wouldn’t work on the treadmill.
