What if watching Thinner could make you thinner?
My wife is here reading me her favorite magazine. . . Readers Digest. I do not know why she reads me this. It's like an old people's joke book. I have tried to get her hooked on Cemetery Dance, but it's too infrequent.
Just as I start to tease her, she reads me this snippet:
New research shows scary movies make you adrenaline surge. Burning as many calories as a thirty minute walk. The top "workout"? Kubrick's The Shining -- 184 calories.
--Readers Digest, January, 2013 p.10Of course, if you eat popcorn during the viewing, you might actually gain weight. Or, even worse, blog and eat popcorn while watching.
I wonder how many calories Cujo would burn. I want a calorie guide! Someone could make a Stephen King movie calorie app.
Sleepwalkers might have some value after all, right? Probably not, you have to actually get scared,
