Young adults hardly ever walk, 'because of technology'

A UK survey suggests that those aged 18-24 walk only when they absolutely, positively have to. Yes, 25 percent walk only a mere 5 minutes every day.




Those colloquially known as grown-ups look down upon their youngers as lazy slobs, not deserving of the easy lives they lead.

They see them as lying in bed all day, their drapes permanently closed, their noses permanently buried in some technological device, ready to sext at a moment's notice.

May I present evidence to support this enlightened view?

Research in the UK suggests that those aged 18-24 have given up on what some regard as a life essential: walking.

The evidence revealed that a quarter of Britain's future adults walk for an average of only 5 minutes every day.

One assumes that this is to the fridge and back, to the fridge and back. However, parents in this survey were convinced that the reason for such indolence was, stunningly, technology.
