Exercise Is For Old People

“Stepping up exercise levels in your 50s is likely to cut your chances of suffering a heart attack in later life. Only two-and-a-half hours of moderate activity a week appears to suppress inflammation in the body which is believed to contribute to heart disease, a long-term study has found. It means that, even for the middle aged who have been inspired by the exploits of athletes during the Olympics, it is never too late to exercise and change their future health for the better.
—More importantly, it means you don’t need to do any of that crap right now. Relax! Have a couple of drinks. Want a burger for lunch? Go crazy! Have a cigarette after to speed up your metabolism a bit. And skip the gym. All that stuff is for your 50s! Right now you should be having fun. You see Science there, resting his ass on that park bench, smoking and laughing at the people jogging by? He is telling you to come sit by him!
