  1. point 2, data inadequate. How many days one should sit for 11 hrs to die in 3 years?

  2. I always thought if there was nothing genetically wrong with boys, they would always grow taller than their mothers

  3. I don’t wear shoes, I use 4 pillows, I sit 11 hours everyday; am I dead and in heaven and don’t realize it?

  4. Number 2 is just plain false. I assume what they are trying to imply is that your chances of dying “increase” by 50% (an article in Forbes puts this number at 40%). If we assume for mathematical purposes that your average chance of dying in the next 3 years is 1% (just an arbitrary number for the purposes of illustration) and you sit for 11 hours every day for those 3 years, then your chances of dying would then go up to 1.5% – this is a 50% increase of 1%, NOT a 50% chance of dying.
