"Dollfinn" I had to chuckle...Avoid second hand smoke and excersise...

I'm a strong advocate of second hand exercise!

Seriously, I've read about studies where one group of people sits and flexes a particular muscle for a certain period every day for a few weeks, then the increase in muscle size is measured. A second group does the same thing except they only THINK about flexing the muscle, which stays relaxed. The thinking-only group increased their muscle size also, though not as much, maybe a third as much if I remember correctly. It's like observing an extremely active person and saying "just watching you makes me tired!"

That article did have some rather curious phraseology, I agree. Aloha,

Ned
