BREAKFAST!
BREAKFAST!
Oh, Japan, you're so funny. What Japan Thinks-- which is an awesome site that you should bookmark –spotted a recent national poll in Japan that noted that teenagers who had breakfast in the morning had sexual intercourse at an average age of 19, whereas those who skipped the most important meal of the day replaced it with sex at an average age of 17.5.


Now, let's note that the average age for first sexual intercourse in the United States, breakfast or no, is 17.4 for girls and 17 for boys (according to the US Center for Disease Control-- other studies put it at an average of about 17), so if the goal is to try and get that number above 18, Japan's closer to it than we are.


On the other hand, Japan's birth rate has been ridiculously low for years-- it's pretty clear that the entire country is having less sex, not just its teenagers. So maybe what should happen here is that Japan should discourage the eating of breakfast, and the US should bail out the breakfast industry by giving every household a pack of bagels every week.


Just sayin'.

Hm, maybe it's not THAT they are eating breaking but WHAT they are eating for breakfast? Maybe we should all be investing heavily in Miso? *ponders*

hahahahahaha that's the best "stats" related news yet.

Remember kids:
"There are lies, damned lies, and statistics!"
Any kind of poll is ridiculous because it has no statistical backup other than percentages; therefore, take it as a grain of salt.

I guess breakfast truly is the most important meal of the day. It decides if the human race will continue to grow or not.
