24 Hour News Cycle - Running on Empty

Sometimes I just have to digress, and today is one of those days.  I was watching/listening to, the evening news last night while tying flies, which is a mistake to begin with (watching the news, of course).  At every break, they had their usual hooks for upcoming stories to keep you glued to your set in hopes that you might not be too intelligent and stick with them for a few more marketing segments.
Here are the two stories they had me waiting on the edge of my seat for: 
Still to come, "Drinking water can make you age faster!" and "Watching TV can be hazardous to your child's health!"  Stay with us for these important stories.......
So after much anticipation, the "news" stories were presented with as much drama as you might expect for an international crisis.  I'll spare you the gory details and give you the synopsis:
If you drink water out of a water bottle, over the years, it seems you'll get wrinkles around your mouth!  Shocking news to say the least..........isn't that what happens naturally as we age?

And, TV can be hazardous to your child's health because it may fall on them.  All this time I thought it might just perhaps be filling their brains with poo. Who knew? 

I think people need to get outside more......oops, maybe not, seems the sun might just fry your skin and give you wrinkles. Which of course, will make you look older.

Seriously.  What's next?    "WALKING IN CIRCLES MAY NOT GET YOU ANYWHERE!" Full story at eleven.
It might just make you dizzy, too.

Walking in circles? It depends which way you walk.....clockwise or counterclockwise...check your watch for the correct direction, and always bring a compass and a towel....you never know when your going to need a towel...
