Good point. But I was trying to be brief and not write a dissertation.

What I mean is that what many people find "fun" can shorten your life. Whether it's bungee-jumping, car racing, skydiving, playing video games!, watching the telly from the couch, etc., ad infinitum all have certain risks.

I'd imagine that bungee-jumping is FAR riskier than playing video games. If that bungee breaks, it's all over. Some people like to play video games. Some people like to bungee-jump. It's all a personal matter, and a matter of an individual personally managing risk. The government has no business in deciding here.

The amount of time between slipping on the peel and landing on the pavement is precisely 1 bananosecond.
