Buried in a recent New Yorker article about President Trump’s potential impeachment and removal from office, a little nugget of brain-numbing idiocy could be found. “Other than golf,” it reads, “Trump considers exercise misguided, arguing that a person, like a battery, is born with a finite amount of energy.”

ummmmm. So what you’re saying, Leader of the Free World, is that my so-called “heart-battery” will run out of juice if I use it to turn over my engine too many times?

Exercise, or as it will be referred to henceforth “heart-battery wasting”, does use up more energy. But as a result your muscles get stronger, you become better at converting food to fuel, your circulation is improved and in turn, you become more efficient at merely existing. As a result, exercise “heart-battery wasting” enhances your energy supply, it doesn’t degrade it. Any dummy has to know this!

If this were the case, then Olympian athletes would be dropping like flies, but they’re not.

I don’t know why I continue to be surprised by 45 and yet I am.

Also, your watch band is too tight.
