Ants in my pants

Overweight people have a tendency to sit, while lean ones have trouble holding still and spend two hours more a day on their feet, pacing around and fidgeting, researchers are reporting in findings published today.The difference translates into about 350 calories a day, enough to produce a weight loss of 30 to 40 pounds in one year without trips to the gym - if only heavy people could act more restless, like thin ones. --The New York Times


Ways to make me more likely to fidget:

--Massive doses of methamphetamine
--Being covered in fire ants
--Getting chased by flesh-eating zombies

Flesh-eating zombies are a win-win situation. If you get away, you lose weight from the exercise. If they catch you, you lose weight from the flesh they eat.

True...
But the Spear-carrying Canibilistic Pygmies are shorter.
