What is everybody doing?

Following up on some recent cautionary posts about our activities these days, here's a source of information about collective doings that goes beyond mere opinionating; the Department of Labor's American Time Use website is chock full of of hard to argue with statistics on how Americans spend their time. The pie chart above shows what Americans do with their leisure time on an average day; 19 minutes relaxing and thinking, and 2.6 hours watching TV. I believe the activities represented in the chart are considered to be mutually exclusive.
