Guys Burn Almost as Many Calories Sitting on the Couch as They Do Working Out?

We used to think the best advantage men had over women was being able to pee in filthy gas station bathrooms without making contact with the toilet seat. THIS may be even better.

A new study found men burn almost as many calories sitting on the COUCH watching TV as they do working out . . . but women aren’t so lucky.

Now . . . the study was small, and it was conducted for a British TV show, so we can’t necessarily take it as scientific fact. But check this out . . .

A guy sitting on the couch for a few hours burned 640 calories . . . while a guy working out for an hour burned 834 calories. That is NOT a huge difference.

On the other hand, a woman sitting on the couch for a few hours burned 292 calories . . . but a woman working out for an hour burned 729. That IS a huge difference.

The main reason men can burn so many calories sitting around is that they usually have larger bodies and more muscle mass . . . so they need more calories just to survive, even when they’re not doing anything.

A Guy Sued Applebee’s Because He Burned His Face Praying Over a Skillet of Steak Fajitas

You know how the waitress always says, “Be careful, these are SOOOOO hot” when she brings over your skillet of fajitas? She’s NOT lying.

Hiram Jimenez of Trenton, New Jersey went to an Applebee’s back in March of 2010 and ordered steak fajitas . . . and of course they were served in a sizzling skillet.

When the food arrived, Hiram and his brother decided to pray, and bowed their heads. But Hiram dipped a little too low and burned his left eye and his FACE on the skillet. Then he jumped up and knocked the skillet into his lap, and caused MORE burns.

Fortunately, none of the burns left a scar . . . but he still sued Applebee’s for negligence.

His case has been bouncing around the courts ever since . . . but yesterday, an appeals court finally squashed it. They ruled that the danger of the sizzling fajitas was self-evident and it was Hiram’s fault for putting his face too close.
