British Scientists Say Things Are Moving at a Snail’s Pace.

Antediluvian Treasure.
British scientists' warning.

It would be interesting to know how long an ordinary human walks in total during life time. On having asked themselves the same question, British scientists established: an ordinary European during his/her ordinary life covers afoot 80,500 kilometres.

Prima facie (as the researchers use the Latin for “at first glance”), it is quite a lot.

However, remember that the life expectancy is 80 years. In this case, every day we walk less than 3 km on average and every hour of wakefulness we walk around 200 m. No wonder why we suffer hypodynamia (the scientific for “lack of motion” and deceases associated with it).
