Suspicions Confirmed! Work is bad for your health

BBC News reports that, as we have always suspected, work is bad for your health: “If you’re over 40, working more than 25 hours of work a week could be impairing your intelligence,” says a report from Australia’s Melbourne Institute of Applied Economic and Social Research. According to the researchers, your optimum work week is 25 hours.

Alerted to this news flash, SDXB — our model in Bumhood, having wisely retired by age 50 — responds as follows:

Of course it is. Work is stressful, doesn’t pay enough, and diverts our attention from things that really  matter, like leisure and beating the system.  Give me bumhood any day.

  1. Good for SDXB! In these parts we call that…”sticking it to the man”…LOL

  2. I have a fridge magnet that says, “They lied. Hard work has killed lots of people.” Mom did factory work for around 30 years and died at age 68. I think the combo of childhood poverty, high blood pressure, smoking, and demanding physical labor combined to kill her.
