I'm not much of a drinker but after watching a series of Bundaberg Rum commercials I'd consider trying it. In this one (you golfers will appreciate) a golfer get assistance from, what I call the 'Bundaberg Buddies' removing the alligator from a favorable spot on the green. I do not believe this commercial aired in the United States.
A new study says that watching too much TV might actually shorten your life. The study was conducted by researchers at the University Of Queensland in Australia. The scientists say that watching television for 6 hours or more each day might shorten lifespan by up to 5 years. That would rival other well known lifespan limiters such as obesity and smoking.
A new study conducted by Ofcom indicates that smart phones are gaining on tv as the most popular media for young people.
And that also holds true for adults.
According to the survey 28 percent of 16 to 24 year olds said they would miss their phone more than tv...or the internet. Of course the phone lets you surf the net, so I'm not sure if that was taken into account.
