if you went out for a walk, brisk of course, you could make some observations, amass some data, and report back your findings

My findings, from casual observation, is that it's probably true. Dawdlers on the pavement, leaners on supermarket trolleys are out there in their masses.
I wonder what conclusions would be arrived at if a similar survey was done on those in the 30s and younger? Dawdlers with their necks stooped looking at their (fused to the palms of their hands) mobile phones.

Well from what the link said activity drops off at 40 so I assume that means younger people walk more.

I was walking about for 7 hours yesterday plenty of people of all ages. I don't believe it a month is like 30 days ish give or take the month, come on ten mins.

What is brisk anyway and what about other factors, my mum goes out walking to the shops most days but shes in her 70s so not brisk however she carries loads of shopping home doesn't that account for something?

She also does line dancing, did thy ask about things like that, something is going on as theres loads of gyms around.

Take a leaf out of China's books they don't do anything until they hit about 60, they don't do gyms or anything most of them don't even do anything with the kids. The grandparents look after the kids and the parks are full of OAPs doing Tai Chi and stuff.

They ain't all fat because they don't eat crap and they work all day, I don't mean for a wage i mean in general, they hand wash clothing and hang them on the washing line still mainly, they cook, they wash dishes etc all these little things that people here dont do and dont notice they don't do anymore, with the washer dryers, dish washers, microwaves etc.

Just saying.
Yeah...the estimate may be 41% accurate?

Not saying I agree with the estimate since I don't see what they are basing it on but statistically what you see around town is almost meaningless.

I'm not saying the result is that accurate either, but even a 10% (instead of 41%) figure would still be alarming

Many pit stops in playgrounds
Standing around isn't the same as walking around. Next there will have been benches and it becomes sitting around.

so you weren't walking for 7 hours and if at the playgrounds how briskly are you walking if accompanied by kids!?
how do you think people you see walking when you are walking are relevant or representative? how many people indoors do you see when you are outside?
it STILL isn't all about you
YOU are not 100% of people

Years ago I was running for a bus carrying a takeaway. Medium lamb curry, 2 nan breads and a couple of seekh kebabs. I was going like the clappers and went arse over tit, the takeaway going underneath me. I got up and was stood there with a carrier bag with no bottom in it, just dripping the remnants of any remaining curry onto the floor.

Try not to visualise it, I don;t want you getting upset
