At your desk job

► Push a pencil for 45 minutes

► Walk back and forth to the copier for 26 minutes.

► Type on a regular typewriter for 42 minutes; 48 minutes if you have a PC.

► Talk up a client for 52 minutes.


Doing the things your wife tells you to do

► Run with scissors for 9 ½ minutes.

► Talk with your mouth full for more than 38 minutes.

► Jump up and down on the bed 1,336 times.

► Wrestle with your kid brother on the living room floor for seven minutes.


Doing the same thing over and over

► Do 97 pushups (at 10 pushups a minute).

► Do 146 crunches (at 15 crunches a minute).

► Play the nickel slots in Reno 234 times.

► Put 156 golf balls (at six putts a minute)


Acting out scenes from your favorite films

► Grab a golf club and make like a swash-buckling Errol Flynn.  You’ll burn 100 big ones in just 8 ½ minutes (and probably break every lamp in the houses).

► Groove like Travolta during a dance-contest scene (Disco John in Saturday Night Fever; 14 minutes; ‘90s John in Pulp Fiction: 18 minutes).

► Reenact the end of any movie starring Van Damme, Seagal or Lee (martial arts); roughly eight minutes.

► Hit the open road like Peter Fonda in Easy Ride; 32 minutes.

► Defend America’s pride during the Olympic table-tennis scene in Forrest Gump: roughly 10 minutes.

► Stand in the mirror and repeat, “Are you talking to me? Are you talking to me?” 519 times.
