Our Things That Are Surprising To Exactly Nobody feature never quite took off but just like it's creator and George Carlin, I think it was ahead of it's time. I'm bringing it back, six months later.
A Nobel Prize-winning behavioral economist (no really) decided to research how rich people spend their time and compare it to how poor people spend their time. His findings were published in the journal, Science. As it turns out, people that make less than $20,000 annually spend more than a third of their time in passive leisure, such as watching TV or just relaxing. People that make over $100,000 spend less than a fifth of their time in passive leisure but spend more time partaking in activities that are "required."
The conclusion is even more
obvious remarkable . Apparently poor people that aspire to be rich people spend too much time dreaming about watching flat screen TVs, bathing in Cristal, and having threesomes with Brazilan supermodels. What they should be doing is...wait for it...
...wait for it...
You can not make this stuff up.
