I vouch for most of them – most importantly the one about not watching TV while eating. It works when you do it. Then the spouse and kids start talking and you realize why you turned on the TV in the first place.
But, of course, we shouldn’t watch TV at all, because it dulls the mind.
And we shouldn’t eat brie because you can’t stop eating a good brie.
People used to believe the moon was made of cheese, most likely brie. It is pale in color with a slight grayish tinge under a rind of white mold – just like the moon.
So: don’t watch TV, avoid too much brie – you’ll live longer. Or, at least, it’ll seem that way.
