Study Ranks NC Fourth "Laziest State"
« on: August 02, 2010, 03:02:18 PM »
im sorry this shit seriously tripped me out! and i have absolutely no doubt that its not being exaggerated. north carolinians are fucking lazy! you should really see their school rankings! i wonder where they get their habbits from.



A new study puts North Carolina near the top of an unflattering list: the Laziest State List.

The Businessweek.com study ranks North Carolina as the fourth laziest state in the country. The study authors only consider Louisiana, Mississippi and Arkansas as lazier.

What did we do (or not do) to deserve this ranking?

The study cited information from the Centers for Disease Control, saying more than one in four respondents had not exercised in the past month. North Carolina ranks tenth in the country for obesity rates. Additionally, the time spent watching tv, relaxing, thinking and other inactive pursuits is slightly greater here than in most states.

Businessweek.com used five years of data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics American Time Use Survey. The survey averages the time spent each day on various activities across the population ages 15 and older, including people who did not do the activity at all.

The study used data from 2004-2008.

You can check out the study here. http://images.businessweek.com/ss/10/07/0722_laziest_states/2.htm

What's the least lazy state? We can't tell you. Perhaps the study authors experienced some laziness themselves, since they only list the top twenty-one lazy states.
